Lovin' Lobs

The long bob, or "lob," is the official celebrity cut of the moment, and for good reason—it looks good on everyone! “The lob is all about taking the classic shape of a bob and making it modern and fresh," says Nick Stenson, jcp salon artistic director.

For actress Jayma May’s look, prep the hair with a volumizing mousse before blow drying to accentuate the hair’s natural texture, says Gerard Caruso, Rusk global artistic director. Working with a double-barrel curling iron, create a press wave. Add extra body by lightly running fingers through the hair. Finish with Rusk Texture Spray throughout the mid-lengths for a beachy feel with medium hold.

“The key to the modern lob is having little or no layers,” says Matrix Celebrity Stylist George Papanikolas. To create Kate Mara’s look, start by rough drying the hair, twisting it as you go. After drying, curl the hair with a 1-inch curling iron. Keep the ends out to avoid a ringlet effect. Spray a few puffs of Matrix Design Pulse Mega Dust for fullness and scrunch Matrix Biolage Pliable Paste into the ends to give a piece-y textured effect.

Precision is everything. Go too short, and you’ll achieve a bob. Too long, and you’ve lost the movement of the cut. “It’s about taking the classic shape of a bob and making it modern and fresh,” says Nick Stenson, jcp salon artistic director. To recreate Katharine McPhee’s bedhead look, Stenson recommends an interior layering technique that will offer the versatility to wear hair smooth and textured. For additional movement and volume, bend hair using a flatiron like FHI’s Runway.
