The Lop is ideal for succumbing to short hair without completely sacrificing lengths. At the crossroads of the shag cut, the mini mullet, and the androgynous bob, it is the trend of the moment.
Short, asymmetrical cuts are on the rise. After the Diana bob which was all the rage earlier this year, it's time for the Lop, a style that embodies the perfect alliance between the long and the short. While overall the hair is shortened, it is fluffed out with tapered, layered strands to create a shortcut in which the lengths are kept. The bangs are long and the top of the head is layered so as to highlight a slightly long nape. It's all in the structure because depending on how the hair is cut, the result can come in the form of a mini shag cut, an androgynous bob, or a mini mullet. Curly and wavy hair is in the spotlight as it adds dimension and volume. A bit vintage, the cut is worked without being stuffy. It unfolds with a loose and glamorous effect. The styling is carried out by a natural brushing to leave room for a combed-disheveled style.
Diana, the short-haired princess. In 1981, the world discovered the future wife of Prince Charles. She sports a very short bob that emphasizes her cheekbones while being slightly longer at the back of the head. She then stands out with a brushing "Voluminous, bouncy and whipped by the wind" explains September 2020 Sam McKnight, her former personal hairdresser. "If cut to the right length, like the cheekbones, it can unfold beautifully and requires little maintenance, which is ideal." A hairstyle in total adequacy with the 80s brought up to date with the series The Crown.
However, this hairstyle also reflects the lack of confidence of Diana who prefers to hide her face under a layer of hair. Lady Di wore it until the early 90s, before making a radical change by adopting the Pixie cut that the expert was behind.
