Bottom-grazing hair can be a hassle when the heat hits its highest temperatures, but the lob is a perfect statement-maker in its own right. It's also a great option for women growing out their hair to longer lengths. So take some inspiration from these Hollywood stars, and go midway for your next cut. Collarbone-grazing lengths are low-maintenance but high in versatility, after all. See three ways to style a trendy lob when you read more.
- Tousled texture: For a new mother like Charlize Theron, a middle part and tousled waves are easy to pull off for a quick, everyday look. Get the style with a curl-enhancing spritz, like Fekkai Summer Hair Beach Wave Spray ($25), using your fingers while blow-drying to create texture.
- Top it off: Nicole Richie styled her lob with soft bangs and a wide-brimmed hat — ideal for a day at the beach or Summer barbecue.
- Classy curls: For a dressier take on the lob, look to Julianne Hough for inspiration. Medium-length curls swept over the shoulder give the style a completely different, yet elegant, feel.
