Change is a good thing, especially when it comes to hair. Although clients often desire long, voluminous strands, there's something to be said about the freedom one feels after a dramatic chop in length. It makes sense then that the lob haircut (long + bob = lob) continues to gain popularity; clients who want a change from their long locks without losing too much length can find this style to be a match made in hair heaven.

We've put together a list of some of our favorite lobs from Instagram to inspire you. Check them out, and remember to tag #ModernSalon so we can see the styles you create on our page. Long live the lob!
