25 Top Celeb Lobs That Will Give You Major Inspo

She just pulled a 'Rachel'...

What is a lob haircut?

Lob hair is one of the most sought-after haircuts of the season and following Victoria Beckham's foray into the hair trend, Hailey Baldwin is a perfect example of someone who has stepped up to the plate: the model's tousled, layered and dare we say 'Rachel' cut (Jennifer Anniston won't be happy), has most definitely inspired us to go for the chop this season.

Selena Gomez lob

More recently, though, Selena Gomez has decided to go for the chop. Granted, her dark, shiny locks look good at any length, but we're adoring this sophisticated Selena.

Kendall Jenner lob

This fashion season Kendall Jenner debuted a lob, and we're obsessed.

But what is a lob haircut?

Lob = Long Bob. It falls anywhere between the bob and mid-length hairstyle categories, which conveniently means less salon visits, too.

How to style a lob haircut

The lob is just long enough that it doesn't restrict you from switching up your day-to-day look. There are plenty of hairstyles that you'll still be able to achieve once you've gone for the chop. From Olivia Palermo’s impossibly glossy locks to Jennifer Lawrence’s super-stylish lob, we’ve got the best examples of the hair trend all in one place.

How to curl lob haircuts

When it comes to styling your lob, we love soft beachy waves (a la Diane Kruger and Emma Stone), so tong your hair after drying and leave to cool before brushing out curls for more subtle movement throughout. Adding curls will also shorten your lob and inch or so, so it's great for maintaining that perfect lob haircut length in between trims.

Soft waves are also the most modern take on the lob haircut trend. To give your curls and waves a more natural, dishevelled vibe, brush out your locks and then sptiz hair throughout with a texturising spray like salt spray. Tip your head upside down and rub your hands through it to add extra volume. Do this whenever your locks fall a little flat.

If you want a glossy, sleek style, make like Olivia Palermo, Jennifer Lawrence and Rose Byrne and blow-dry your lob using a large round barrel brush and finish with a spritz of shine spray. Or try the slicked-back wet look a la Kim Kardashian.
