Match the Look - French Girl Hair: Short Bob vs. Lob

BOB OR LOB?

French girls are masters when it comes to bob-length hairstyles. But do you prefer their take on a traditional short bob or something with a little more length like a long bob (also known as a lob)? Let's take a closer look...

Parisian chic: the short wavy bob


The hairstyle: French girl inspired hairstyles are all the rage at the moment – and it doesn't get more Parisian chic than this natural-textured bob. The underdone finish and hint of curl around the jawline give this look a timeless and youthful quality.


The colour: This classic French Girl hairstyle calls for a classic French brown colour. A natural chocolate brunette shade works brilliantly with dark brows and barely there make-up. As for the outfit? Black, of course!


What the editors say: Effortless style are the words that spring to mind when you behold this short wavy bob. To enhance the tousled effect, we recommend styling with the L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Messy Cliché French Girl range - try the Hairspray on thin hair or French Froissé cream on thicker hair.

French Riviera: the glossy lob


The hairstyle: Light, warm and airy - this lob hairstyle has all the glamour of a shorter 'do without the cut commitment that's required for a traditional bob. It's also a superb option for ladies currently growing out a shorter bob.

The colour: When it comes to colour, think French Girl brown takes a vacation! The emphasis is on adding a sunny lift, so ask your colourist to create a warm brunette balayage using golden caramel browns. Accessorize the look with a printed headscarf and oversized sunnies.


What the editors say: A lob is one of our favourite looks this season because it has the length to show off a great hair colour while also being short enough to land lightly on the shoulders. For that shiny and shimmery finish, just add a spritz of L'Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Huile Radiance.
