It’s the new classic.

If you’re one of those girls still searching for new hairstyles for 2017 but still can’t find one you like, just stop. Instead, look back at some of the hairstyles that won our hearts in 2016. For one, we were swooning over bob haircuts and the many lob styles worn by our favorite celebrities and street-style stars.

It’s pretty safe to say that the long bob is making its way becoming a classic style like its big sister—the bob. Here are four ways to wear lob styles this year.

Lob Styles: 4 Ways to Reinvent Last Year’s Popular Hairstyle

1. The Blonde Lob

Give your lob hairstyle a little light therapy to brighten things up this year. The right shade of blonde will complement your skin tone and add a pretty highlight to your hairstyle. If you’re not ready to go full-on blonde, opt for blonde highlights instead.

2. Bedhead Lob

Whether you want to call it messy, disheveled or undone, the bedhead look is still having a moment. Nail this look by using a curling iron to create loose curls. After creating your curls add a texturizing product like Suave Professionals Texturizing Sea Salt Spray then roughly finger comb to create the mussed-up look. If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, skip the curling iron and use Catwalk by TIGI Curls Rock Amplifier to enhance your texture.

3. The Blunt Lob

If you haven’t read our blunt haircut round-up, you should. Generally speaking, lobs were a major hit for 2016. The blunt cut, however, is going to be the most flattering shape of 2017. Go for this bold look to create an edgy statement with your hair.

4. The Curvy Lob

Not curls, not waves, but curves. Add a natural and romantic touch to your lob hairstyle with a subtle wave-like bend towards to ends. On super, slick-straight hair that’s hard to hold a curl, prep hair by washing with TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)done Shampoo and condition with TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)done Conditioner for body and texture. After washing, prep hair with a heat protectant then use a flat iron to create a curvy wave.
