If you love the look of a short bob haircut (i.e., a cut that hits right along the jawline), but you aren’t ready to commit to such a big chop, allow me to introduce you to the long bob (aka a lob). This medium-length hair hits somewhere between the jawline and just below your shoulders and is the perfect compromise between a shorter haircut that can still be tied back and styled out of your face. And though, yes, blunt ends have definitely had their ~moment~ in the last few years, trust me when I say that if you want a low-maintenance cut, you’ll want to ask your stylist for layers. Now please—flip through these 23 lob hairstyles to take to your next salon visit.

1

A Lob With Flipped Ends

The best hairstyles feel nostalgic and modern all at the same time. Case in point: this layered hairstyle. To get ends that are both flipped in and flipped out, section your hair and alternate between curling the ends under and curling them out when styling.

2

Short Wavy Hair and Middle Part

While a bob might be too short to use a three-prong curling wand for S-waves like these, a lob is the perfect length to play around with the crimping tool. To keep the roots smooth and the volume mostly at your ends, try sliding in a couple of barrettes above your brows.

3

A Long Bob With a Side Part

Grab that bottle of hair gel (yes! Gel!) for beautiful, soft, crunch-free curls like this. A look that’s tossed to the side with a less-defined hair part lends itself to this natural, effortless lob.

4

A Long Bob With Lots of Layers

Somewhere between a short curly hairstyle and a long curly hairstyle, you’ll find this shoulder-length lob cut. The best of both worlds, this haircut has the length you want with a whole lotta layers to keep the ends from feeling too heavy.

6

A Mid-Length Haircut and Middle Part

Layers don’t have to be choppy. Ask your stylist to add a few subtle layers throughout to break the weight of your lob up a little bit. This mid-length cut has the feel of a blunt cut without that heavy feel that comes with it.

7

An Angled Lob

If you’re scared to cut your hair, go with an illusion cut like this (with or without stacked layers) to trick your eye. From the front, this A-line cut looks like a mid-length haircut, but from the back, it’s actually a long bob. ~Magic.~

8

A Long Bob With Long Bangs

These long, side-swept bangs give that ’90s-supermodel-Cindy-Crawford look, but the collarbone-length makes it feel cool and current, like ’20s Kaia Gerber.

9

A Bob With Subtle Layers

Just a few lil’ layers is all your lob needs for a look like this, which can be styled to be textured, tousled (like shown here) or worn sleek and straight.

11

A Half-Up Lob Hairstyle

The best part about a lob? Unlike a short bob, this haircut is long enough to pull back in a half-up, half-down hairstyle. Wear the shorter pieces around your face down for that piece-y look, or use hairspray to hold them back, like the look shown here.

12

A Lob With Face-Framing Layers

This long curly bob is made even better with curly bangs and lots of layers around the face, which draws attention to all your fave features: your eyes, cheekbones, and smile.

13

A Long Bob With Flipped Ends

If you’re looking for a hairstyle that feels classic but also trendy, this lob with a side swoop and flipped ends has the coolest vintage feel. To get the look, glide a flat iron through your strands, rotating the iron out and upwards once you reach the last inch or two of each section.

14

A Longer Bob With Piece-y Layers

Take it from someone who’s currently growing out a blunt lob: The style is a little limiting. If you like blunt ends, ask for piece-y layers added throughout to create nice body and to give your style a little more versatility, because straightening your hair every day is no fun.

15

A Layered Lob With Wispy Bangs

It’s a toss-up between which hairstyle intimidates people more: bobs or bangs. But put ’em together, and the only thing scary is how scary-pretty it is. Lots of layers throughout help blend the two together.

16

A Shaggy Lob

Hair lacking texture and volume? Get a shag haircut with lots of layers, like this one. This long, layered bob has more movement than all of my body during quarantine.

17

A Wet Look Bob Hairstyle

Textured layers like this look amazing when air-dried, but in my humble opinion, they look even better when they’re still wet. Try the wet look, like the one shown here, with a little hair pomade.

18

A Long Bob With Textured Layers

If a blunt cut looks and feels too heavy for your hair type or texture, ask your stylist to lighten some of the weight and add movement throughout with lots of layers.

19

A Lob With Loose Waves

If you want to add body or a wave to your hair but don’t want to lose even more length, try a looser wave. Start by curling your hair with curling iron or wand, then brush out the ringlets with a boar bristle brush to create soft finish like this.

20

A Curly, Layered Lob

Want more curly fringe inspo? Say no more. Make sure you find a stylist that’s used to cutting curly hair, then work with them to find the perfect length for layers around your face.

21

A Lob With Soft Layers

The soft layers in this look allow for all different kinds of straight hairstyles so you truly never get bored with it. Wear your fringe down and over to the side, like this, part it down the middle, push it back—you get the idea.

22

A Long Bob With Bangs

Everything about this long bob cut feels cool and effortless—even if it does take a little effort to get it to look like this. Use a flat iron on a cooler setting to give your hair a slight bend and finish with a hair oil for that piece-y finish.

23

A Classic Long, Layered Bob

Side-swept bangs and face-framing layers give this long bob hairstyle a timeless feel, but if you want to edge it up, make an appointment with your colorist next and pair your new cut with a bold hair color.
