Lob Haircuts You'll Be Asking For In 2020

According to Byron Turnbull, Co-Founder and Director of Australia's Goldie Sydney, long bobs (read: lobs) are having a serious moment. "Lob season is coming!" he told Harper's Bazaar. "This look is amazing and great for people who love to wear their hair up, but also want texture, as well as the option to wear it down. [It's] great for summer fashion, keeping the [overall look] cool and chic." 

The best part? Larry King, Redken UK Ambassador and celebrity hairstylist, believes the style suits almost everyone (via Glamour). Here are the 3 lob haircuts you'll be asking for in 2020.

Shaggy lob

Alexa Chung has always been a big fan of the shaggy lob, and if it's good enough for her, it's good enough for you. "The mid-length shag cut lends itself to a variety of styles," celebrity stylist Jillian Halouska told Refinery29. "The defining element is the texture, which infuses more layers and softness than the blunt cut that was everywhere last year," she continued. 

While Franck Izquierdo, co-founder of IGK Hair, believes a fringe completes the look — if you're not sure you'll suit a blunt fringe, simply opt for a curtain fringe instead. "A long fringe with a choppy cut that still gives us texture — the look is kind of French," Izquierdo told Refinery29.

Blunt lob

Riawna Capri, co-founder of Nine Zero One Salon, believes "The 2020 trend is all about structure." Speaking to Allure, she revealed, "Out with the [tousled] texture, in comes polished structure." In other words, think less layers and more blunt, one length kind of cuts a la Kim Kardashian. 

"Being blunt is 2020's good friend," co-founder of Spoke & Weal Salons, Jon Reyman, added. "The most obvious version of this is a bob — but you do not have to chop off a ton of hair to get the blunt effect. This look can be achieved in a more versatile haircut by choosing blunt accent pieces around the face."

Flipped lob

Endorsed by celebrities such as Bella Hadid, Rose Byrne, Zoey Deutch, and Karlie Kloss, flipped ends are back in a big way. "This look is a modern take on the '60s bubble flip," celebrity hairstylist Ruslan Nureev told INSTYLE. "I think it's making a comeback because it's definitely statement hair and it looks really good with mid shoulder length, which is a popular length right now," she explained. 

Flip ends in for a '90s look as seen on the always chic Resse Witherspoon, or out for a style reminiscent of style icon Jackie Kennedy in the '60s.
