Get ready for the warmer weather by putting away those sweaters, embracing spring cleaning, and lightening up long hair with new ‘do. The bob is one of the hot haircuts, and can be had at every hair length. Check out these pictures of long bob hairstyles for for 7 gorgeous cuts and styles.
We love long layered hair but the truth is the longer hair is older hair. With an average growth rate of 6″ per year, the ends of these locks are pushing 5 years of washing, drying, sun, and styling. Even with care and conditioning, those ends are going to get dry. Cutting off that half foot of hair leaves plenty of length that is so much healthier and voluminous hair.
Cutting long hair shorter (but not necessarily short) is the perfect transition to celebrate spring and upcoming summer. The days are getting longer and filling with fun, so cut down on styling and drying time so you can get out there and enjoy it all. The angled bob is longer at the front than the back, keeping that length visually while making hair easier to style.
And ta da, the gorgeous long bob from the front. The gorgeous cut is enhanced by Anh Co Tran‘s trademarked “lived-in hair.” The tousled, beachy texture is a gorgeous for every occasion from casual to formal and is easy to recreate at home with a flat iron.
The bob with bangs is one of the classic hairstyle combinations that is always on trend. This cute cut features fringe that hangs straight down over the forehead but would also look fabulous with side swept bangs.
Layering and graduation from front to back add texture, body, and volume to hair. The cut looks great and is easy to style whether you want to wash-and-go or add in some loose waves and piecey texture. Either way, use a finishing serum to protect hair and fight frizz.
One of the reasons long bobs are awesome is that they look great with and without styling. This effortless chic look is somewhere in between 2015’s boho waves and bedhead. Sometimes second day hair looks best so work it, adding a touch of dry shampoo for greasy roots.
It’s not a trend unless you’ve spotted a celeb with the look, right? The ladies from Pretty Little Liars are often a source of inspiration and Lucy Hale is no different. This collarbone-skimming bob is a gorgeous choice for her ultra thick hair and gets extra depth and texture from écaille highlights, the must have hair color of 2015.
The long bob is pretty, easy, and versatile. Style it with loose waves or wash-and-go or don’t-wash-and-go, it all looks great! It’s an on trend and easy to wear style that will have you looking great all summer long.
