The textured lob remains one of the it haircuts of the year. The trending look is an essential for cool chicks and celebrities like Rose Byrne and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. This style is so good, I wouldn’t blame you if suddenly want to make the chop and join the tousled lob squad. However, you should know the details and nuances on this style. There is certainly more to it than a trim and a curling wand. If you’re ready to make the big cut, click through to the notes to get the details on how to get and wear this essential it girl do. –– Michelle Rotbart
Consult With A Trusted Stylist
Make sure to discuss the cut with your stylist, while it’s not super short you want to be sure in your decision to wear a lob. Bring in photos of styles you like and consult on what will work for your face, natural hair texture, and routine. All of these nuances will dictate your cut.
Invest In the Proper Heat Tools
If you don’t have much wave or curl to your hair, you’ll need to invest in a few great heat tools as this cut is all about styling. If you prefer a wand, opt for the Arrojo 1” curling wand. It’s super easy to maneuver and will give you great shape and style. Be sure to leave out the ends of your hair for an undone look. If an iron is more your thing, grab the Arrojo Smoothing Iron to create “S” waves.
Stock Up On The Right Products
In addition to a great cleanser and conditioner, you need products that will give your hair grit and texture. I love wave mist for creating great body and refinish for creating texture and instant volume.
Think About Your Hair Color
This style even looks good with a bit of a grown out root for an extra devil-may-care appeal. Chat with your colorist about adding dark roots and bright ends to your cut.
