Style Alert: The Beach Wave Lob is Officially On Our Radar

Wave 'hello' to the loose wave lob.

If you decided to take the leap and chop off your hair to a classy lob length or have been rocking shorter hair for awhile, you’re going to want to keep reading. Shorter lengths are taking the fashion world by storm and we don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon! Lobs are a great length for experimenting with different styles. The longish short length allows you to still go for a ponytail or a top knot. If you choose to go for a curled style it’ll look fab, too. One of the classiest and sexiest curled styles for lobs is the beach wave lob. We’ve got just the techniques and products to help you achieve this style:

The Beach Wave Lob is Going to be Your New Fave

Prep hair

Before you dive into styling your beach wave lob, it’s important to prep accordingly. Since this style is a shorter length, make sure your strands are healthy and moisturized. Any signs of breakage or dry ends will be more apparent as your length will be more visible. In order to create this look, you’ll need a straightener or curling iron. It’s important to remember a heat protectant before going in with a styling tool that gets hot. Go in with a few sprays of Dove Hair Therapy 7-in-1 Miracle Mist before you start creating your loose wave lob.

Style it!

Now that it’s styling time, choose your weapon: straightener or curling iron. If you’re a beginner to loose waves, then we recommend sticking to a curling iron. Styling Hack: While curling, remember to curl varying strands away from your face and toward your face to create a more natural look. When wrapping your hair around the barrel or twisting the straightener, make sure to leave about an inch or two at the end un-curled. By solely focusing your curls in the middle of your strands, you will create a more stylized curl that appears voluminous.

In order to get even more volume on your lob, spray some dry shampoo at your roots. Focus Dove Refresh+Care Fresh Coconut Dry Shampoo at your root on the top sections of your hair.

Some finishing touches

Once your loose wave lob is to your liking, it’s time for the finishing touches. Go in with a pump of Nexxus Mousse Plus Volumizing Foam to add a shine boost and thickening product to your strands. In case volume and shine weren’t enough for you, this product also glows under UV light, pretty cool, right?
