Don’t know what to do with your medium-length hair? Check out these lob hair ideas to help you get started. 

Lob or long bob is that limbo between long and short hair. Styling it can leave you in limbo too. Lob hair is too short to be put in a high ponytail, yet it’s bothersome to leave it down on hot, sweltering days. You may even get stumped on how you should wear it  due to frizz and fly-aways. Don’t worry! Check out these pretty lob hair ideas that you can try.

1. One-length lob

If you have naturally straight hair, flaunt it with a one-length lob.  A quick blow dry after showering or a few minutes of ironing creates the super straight look. Using the right hair products for straight hair also helps in maintaining pin-straight hair.

Dove Straight & Silky Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Enhance straight hair and keep it nourished and frizz-free by washing with DOVE Straight & Silky Shampoo and DOVE Straight & Silky Conditioner

2. Low, messy ponytail

This is one of the easiest lob hair ideas to pull off. When you have a lot of errands or the day is just too hot for a down ‘do, you can just put your lob in a low, messy ponytail. You simply finger-comb your hair before tying it with an elastic. Let loose strands of hair frame your face to create a chic but laidback look.

TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax

Editor’s tip: Spritz TONI&GUY High Definition Spray Wax on your hands and scrunch through your hair before tying. This will add texture to your hair and nail the messy look.

3. Dip-dyed hair

Add drama to lob hair by coloring the lower half of your tresses. Create a beautiful contrast with your naturally dark hair by choosing light colors like honey brown, blonde, or even pastels. Dip-dyed hair is also low maintenance because you don’t have to rush to the salon to touch up your roots when your hair starts growing.

Cream Silk Color Protect Conditioner

4. Center part

Your face shape is also key in choosing the right haircut and hairstyle. If you have a long face, part your lob hair at the center so your face won’t be concealed. Brush your hair inwards to let your hair frame your face. Keep your simple ‘do frizz-free by applying hair serum on your hair.

TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops

Editor’s tip: A drop of TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops tames frizz and fly-aways, so your hair stays well-behaved all day.

5. Wavy lob

Give your hair a volume boost by creating lovely waves on your lob. If you don’t have a curling iron, you can use hair rollers. A tousled look also creates the same effect without the use of heat. With a wavy lob, you can go from casual to party-ready in no time. You can also sport a wavy lob when going out on romantic dates.

TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray

Editor’s tip: Spritz TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray to create beautiful, textured waves.
