The bob cut seems to be a trend that keeps resurfacing, albeit in different incarnations.
We’ve seen short bobs, like those sported by Taylor Swift and Nicole Richie, as well as asymmetrical bobs like the style famously worn by Victoria Beckham.
So what is 2017’s version? Carlton Hair’s David Gillson has dubbed the the textured long bob cut – known as the lob – as the “hottest style out of LA.”
The sophisticated lob (long bob) is becoming the hairstyle of the moment with many Hollywood A-listers sporting the cut such as ‘La La Land’ Oscar winner Emma Stone.
“It’s worn slightly wavy, with fringe,” David explains.
According to the well-known hair guru, what makes this style unique is that it can be worn on really curly hair. The style is all about texture, with diversity playing a big role in where hair trends are going.
