There are usually two different reason why somebody wants to change their hairstyle. They want something more fun, that can also make them look young or something exciting that will just change up their look a little bit. Going short can be hard for someone who has always had long hair. We get it, cutting y our hair is not easy. But changing your look can be the best thing you ever did.
We’re talking today about the long Bob, or “LOB” as it’s called in the industry. The “LOB” just means Long bob and it’s a great style for people who don’t want to cut their hair too short. These long bobs won’t shock you; they won’t be jarring when you look in the mirror at the salon. They are long enough for you to still be comfortable but they also give you the change that you need.
With the long bob, you still have the freedom to style it the same as when you had long hair. You can still use your curling iron and straightener to style just as you always have.
The bob is a very versatile style. It’s not just your hairstyle right now but cut shorter. The bob is its own entity and it’s a very popular style. You will see many celebrities sporting this style on the red carpet because it’s really awesome. It can be hard to cut your hair, but sometimes you just need to take the plunge. If you are looking for a change, then you really can’t go wrong with the long bob. There are so many different types of bobs as well as many different ways of styling it.
