Probably one of the most overlooked hairstyles out there is mid-length hair. Between short pixies and chin-grazing cuts and long, lustrous tresses, we often forget just how chic mid-length hairstyles can be. But right now, that seems to be changing.
Chances are, if you’re anything like us, you’re looking for a way to freshen up your look, and we all know the easiest way to do so is with a new hairstyle. And it seems the look fashion girls are backing is the long bob, otherwise known as the “lob.”
The long bob’s sudden rise through the hair ranks is likely a combination of two things: It’s being sported by those who had shorter hairstyles before lockdown which have subsequently grown out due to the lack of salon appointments, and those with longer hair have been flocking to their hairdressers en masse to embrace a new look.
Regardless, there’s no denying that a long-bob hairstyle is one of the most timeless hairstyles you can choose, that they look fabulous whatever the hair type or colour, and that they can be styled in a multitude of ways. Case in point? This gorgeous lot.
Below, you’ll find 25 of our favourite long-bob hairstyles, each of which will inspire you to embrace the middle ground when the salons reopen.
