I guess you already know what I am talking about. The new lob is here, it’s the hot summer trend and some models are already in the game. What about us, normal women? Well, the trendy summer lob is a simple trend, that requires shiny hair and also a quite fine length: it is short, but not too short, it is long, but not too long. Kaia Gerber’s new haircut was actually inspired by her and her desire to change her look and she is the one who started this trend just a few days ago. But, well, the lob is not something revolutionary, we have seen it also before. Kaia’s cut is quickly cementing itself as the cool-girl hairstyle of 2019, with celebs like Brie Larson and Mandy Moore also hopping on the bob bandwagon. Yes, you’re excused to book an appointment with your stylist now.
The model (and daughter of famous supermodel Cindy Crawford) chopped her signature long locks into a short, sleek chin-length bob. She took to Instagram to share the look with her fans, dubbing it “the drama cut” in her caption. Kaia’s new ‘do comes courtesy of Guido Palau, the global creative director for Redken, and his first assistant, Sandy Hullett, who is a master stylist herself. Because, apparently, when you’re creating a work of hair art and the canvas is Kaia Gerber’s head, it’s a two person job.
A lot of women get hung up on long hair making their face look slimmer but a lot of the time that’s not the case. A lot of the time the hair is wearing them, rather than them wearing the hair! Keep in mind how fast your hair grows. If your hair grows quickly, go for a slightly shorter lob as it’ll take longer to grow out. The three lengths I like are: jaw length, shoulder length and collar bone length. If your hair won’t grow past a certain length then you can play with extensions to get that extra inch and turn your bob into a lob. A lob with a blunt line finish makes fine hair look much fuller. Speak to your stylist about using clippers – it’s a trick I use to get that really chunky edge when you turn your head.
