The long bob

Hey, you. You with the long hair. Yes, I’m talking to you. You need to cut your hair. Yes I know you’ve had long hair since the 90’s and it’s oh-so hard to part with, but trust me on this, you need to cut it. Why you ask? Well, for one thing, hair so long that you’re often confused with the Amish, is not on-trend anymore. Also, if you’re reading this I’m going to assume you care about your image and being stylish. Well, you’ve come to the right place! I’m going to tell, and show, you all about the latest trend in hair – the long bob.

Remember the original bob? Of course you don’t. You’re too young to remember the bob. In any case, the bob was a hairstyle that existed through many of the early decades of the last century, and eventually lost traction in the 90’s. Fortunately for us, history repeats itself, and when this happens, it’s usually in a much better adaptation. Cue in the long bob.

The long bob, or lob as really hip people call it, is exactly as it sounds. A longer version of the bob. Why do you need it? I mean look at these pictures! Why wouldn’t you want your hair to look like that??! Do you want a real reason? It’s super versatile. You can wear it straight, wavy, messy, curly, half up, with bangs or without.

If that’s not convincing enough, how about less time washing and styling. Also, all the cool kids are doing it.
