Lob vs Bob, which suits your style best?

Long locks are really taking a back seat at salons right now, especially as the seasons start to heat up in Australia. Here are two of our favourite shorter straight 'dos for your trend radar ... which one might suit your style? Vote now in Match The Look!

Straight Lob

The long bob – or lob – has been a fashion favourite for quite a while now. It sports the benefits of a bob without the commitment of having a full chop, perfect for those who are attached to having hair you can still tie back! While textured and layered lobs used to be the thing, nowadays it's sleek, straight and blunt lobs that salons are getting requests for. Experiment with a centre or side part depending on your mood, there's a lot of versatility in this simple style. We recommend setting this look with a spritz of to control any flyaways and keep that lob in one smooth style.

Straight Bob

The smooth, straight, chin length bob is a timeless classic when it comes to hairstyles. Effortlessly chic, and impressively low maintenance, it's a style worth trying at least once in your lifetime. You can add to this look with face framing, brow grazing blunt bangs, or shoot straight with a sleek centre part. We recommend adding a bit of gloss to your bob for a head turning finish. Try a shine enhancing serum like incorporated through towel dried hair before styling. Formulated with a unique blend of Evening Primrose oil, SP94, and Powerdose Light, the deeply nourishing Sérum de Force helps fortify hair from the roots while intensifying shine and softness.
