If you’re in the need for a post-summer chop and find yourself heading to the salon this season, you’ll definitely want to consider the clavicle bob. The style has already been approved by multiple celebrities and influencers for its easy-to-style length, but what exactly gave it its name?
The clavicle bob is essentially a variation of the classic lob style we all know and love. This version hits right at your collarbone (hence the name) with the front pieces being slightly longer, which gives you two to three more inches in length as opposed to the lob.
The defining feature of the clavicle bob is the long choppy layers that come with it, which also makes for much more versatility. Keep scrolling to find out how you can start styling this new ‘do.
How to Style the Clavicle Bob
Start with the right shampoo.
Thanks to the longer layers, the clavicle bob already has a little more volume compared to a single-length cut, but it doesn’t hurt to amp that up a little. Use Dove Nourishing Rituals Thickening Ritual Shampoo and Conditioner. This shampoo and conditioner set is great because it gives your hair an extra boost of body and bounce while leaving a relaxing scent in your hair. I mean, who wouldn’t want bouncier hair?
Create that lived-in look.
A lived-in feel–meaning low maintenance–and a clavicle bob go hand in hand. This cut is meant to be great on its own, but also have the versatility for many styles. With a 1-inch curling iron, create loose waves throughout your hair. This technique gives you a put-together look but requires little to no maintenance throughout the day. Pro tip: You don’t have to have turn every piece of hair into a picture-perfect curl; create just enough for a little definition. Next, separate the curls with your fingers to create the loose waves.
Make sure to prep your hair with a heat protectant before curling. We love the TIGI Copyright Custom Create Heat Protection Spray because it moisturizes and adds shine to your hair while protecting it from damage. Plus, the spray works extremely well on all hair types. Finish off your look with Nexxus Styling Comb Thru Finishing Mist. We absolutely love this product for a lived-in clavicle bob. The finishing mist gives you lightweight hold while allowing your hair to be very flexible and bouncy.
