Do you want to cut your hair and have decided on a long bob? Good choice. We have a few tips on what to look for in this hairstyle.
The long bob is also one of the hottest hairstyles this year. No wonder! It's easy to style and looks great on everyone. The haircut looks like a full-grown bob and does not require any complicated extra products. But there are a few things you should pay attention to if you choose this medium-length hairstyle. We have put together six of the most important points for you.
For all those who don't really know what a long bob, or LOB for short, actually is: In the longer version of the bob, the hair is more than chin-length and reaches no more than the collarbone. Therefore, the long bob is often referred to as a clavi cut. The name goes back to the English word "clavicle", which means "collarbone" in German. But if you think that every bob that has grown out of the way is also a trendy long bob, you are mistaken: The haircut only looks successful if the hair is a little longer in the front and shorter in the back.
There is no face shape or hair texture that the long bob doesn't go with. If the trend hairstyle is worn straight and open, the face looks narrower. This emphasizes a heart-shaped or round face. A wavy LOB makes fine hair look fuller and curls look more defined. Additional color accents bring more plasticity and movement into the hair.
Even if the long bob is a little more than a full-grown bob, with the easy-care hairstyle it is often enough to simply knead styling foam or sea salt spray into wet hair. The main thing is that the cut falls fluently, flattering and soft. That gives the extra portion of nonchalance that we love the cut so much for. In addition, slightly tiered ends give the haircut lightness and protect the tips on the shoulders from split ends.
If you have now decided on a long bob, there is one thing you should think twice about beforehand: Would you accept that you will have to go to the hairdresser more often from now on? The cut needs special attention: if it is too long and hits the collarbones, the hair gets the characteristic ducktail, which is not met with much approval. The cut has lost its freshness and quickly looks unstyled. Experts suggest a visit to the hairdresser every six weeks.
The good news: If the medium-length bob is cut well and the front section of hair is a little longer, the haircut also goes with any business look. Because the hairstyle is not only trendy but also effortlessly casual and elegant. Therefore, the cut works not only when going to the office, but of course also in the evening frenzy of a bar.
Who does not know her, the same request that you cut your hair only so short that you can still make a braid? Especially those who previously only had long hair and were used to quickly tying their head of hair into a messy bun or ponytail can now breathe a sigh of relief: Even with the long bob, a braid is still possible - both deep and high horse braids like the half-bun.
Of course! The French variant of the long bob has a pony. The length of the forehead fringe can vary from very short to so long that it tickles the eyes - everything is allowed.
