Reinvent Your Lob
Have you made the plunge? You know…the hair plunge so many women have been making. Still not sure what we’re talking about? It’s the lob! So many women have been making the big chop and cutting their hair into a lob length. The lob hair style has been everywhere, and we don’t hate it. It’s such a stylish and updated haircut that can really give you an entirely different look. The downside of the lob hair style (just like any other hair style) is that you can sometimes feel as though you’re limited in how you can actually style your hair. If you’re feeling that way lately, we’re going to show you how you can reinvent your lob with a few different hair style ideas.
Deep Side Part
Lob hair styles have mostly been worn in that sleek straight style, or with some waves added to the mix. One of our favorite, and probably easiest, ways to reinvent your lob is to mix up the way you’re parting your lob. Instead of a structured side part, opting for a super deep side swept part that gives you that undone type of feel is perfect. It literally takes seconds to style after your hair is dried and the texture you want is added to your hair.
Half Up Bun
One of the most common struggles ladies face when they chop their hair into a lob length is feeling as though they’re limited in how they can style their hair in updo type of styles. Half up hair styles are perfect for that reason, you’re able to get some of your hair up and out of your face (perfect for the summer weather) and not have to worry about the length of your hair. Taking things up a notch, and staying on trend for this season it’s all about the half up bun hair style. Again, start by having dry hair that’s been given the texture you desire. Whether you want beachy waves or super straight locks you can adapt either to your look. Then simply pull the hair back into a half up section but instead of leaving the tail down create a bun with the ponytail portion of the half up bun style.
Another one of our favorite ways to help you reinvent your lob is to add braids to your hair! Braids are perfect because it doesn’t matter what length your hair is, there’s a way for you to adapt braids into the mix. Our current favorite way to rock braids with a lob is to add a braid to the side of your head starting at the part and working your way down to pin the end of the braid near your ear. Creating an ‘undone’ type of braid helps to add to that effortless vibe we all know and love during the summer months. If you want to wear your hair pulled back add a braid to your hairline and down to tie into a low ponytail.
