83 Long Bob Haircuts And Hairstyles To Try In 2022

This mid-length cut is the perfect year-round look.

Also referred to as a lob, a long bob is a type of short haircut that can be achieved when you get your hair cut above or near your shoulders, leaving you with a mid-length look that is longer than a regular bob, but also not too cropped. If you can’t decide between lengths, you don’t have to worry about being pushed out of your comfort zone with this style, as it gives you the best of both worlds.

The reason why lob haircuts are so popular is to do with the fact they suit all face shapes and hair textures, too. Along with being low maintenance, the best thing about this cut is its styling versatility. They can be pulled back into a ponytail, fashioned up into a bun or kept half-up so, it’s no wonder why celebs love it so much.

If you need any more convincing, just keep scrolling to see all the long bob haircuts that are trending for 2022 and beyond. There’s bound to be a look you’ll want to covet, so what are you waiting for?

Platinum blonde is in but there’s no denying that the colour can be quite high maintenance and damaging to strands. So, we suggest teaming yours with a long bob and regularly using a hair mask to keep breakage and split ends at bay.
