Mid-length Bob versus Long Bob

This season's bobs are not quite short, and not quite long but somewhere in-between – but do you prefer a mid-length cut or a long bob? Cast your vote!

Mid-length bob

The style: The roaring return of the bob has also led to the rise of its hip cousin, the mid-length bob. Proudly striding the middle ground between a classic bob and a long bob, this is the ultimate casual street style look. Add in a brow-skimming fringe and you've got a hairstyle that can go from side walk to rock concert!

The hairstyle: The appeal of this hairstyle is its wash-and-go quality. It's designed to be low maintenance, for the girl who doesn't have time to primp and preen. Keep the look fresh by having regular trims and use a nourishing, shine enhancing product like .

What the editors say: There's something achingly hip about this look. It has an effortless vibe that would work in seamlessly with your existing summer wardrobe. We're sold!

The style: The long bob - AKA the lob - has been a fashionista favourite for a while now. The cut dabbles in the realm of short hair but without the commitment of a full blown bob.

The hairstyle: In previous seasons, the lob and layers have gone together like peas in a pod. However this season the lob's layers have been cast aside in favour of a blunt, even length. Add in a deliberate centre part and the lob has a whole new lease on life!

What the editors say: Is it just us, or does this updated take on the long bob have a bit of a Frenchy chic vibe? Oui, oui! Set this look with a mist of to control any flyaways and you'll be all set for wherever the sunny day takes you.
