The long bob is taking social media by storm. And for good reasons, too! But what is a lob hairstyle? The lob, also known as long bob, is ultra flattering on pretty much all face shapes and hair types. It’s the perfect style for those seeking a big hair change, without being super drastic! We think it’s the perfect cut if you want to take the plunge and go short.

So, let’s talk about cuts. While the long bob style is generally collar bone length and it looks perfect, you may still be wondering how to style a textured lob. If you want the chop, ask for lob with texture throughout and a little shorter towards the back. This’ll give you the most flattering cut at the salon and will be perfect styled either wavy or straight! The great thing about the long bob is that it looks ah-mazing either sleek and straight or textured and wavy. It also keeps enough length to ensure you can wear your ZALA Hair Extensions extensions seamlessly, too! So if you’ve got the cut and are missing long mermaid locks, simply pop in your ZALA clip ins! The perfect short hairstyle, right?! The long bob with hair extensions for volume is an instant way to transform your look.

Styling the lob. The look can be styled straight, or middle parted. However, the classic long bob is styled with lots of texture and a side parting. This is our fav way to style the trend at ZALA. The ZALA Cosmo Curling Wand 25mm Barrel is perfect for styling a long bob! Simply take sections and wrap around the wand either once or twice, depending on the length of your locks. The key to styling a lob is to leave the ends straight! This ensures you maintain length whilst adding volume and texture. Leave to cool before brushing out and adding a texturizing spray <3
