Probably one of the most overlooked hairstyles out there is mid-length hair. Between short pixies and chin-grazing cuts, to long, lustrous tresses, often we 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: 1) 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 2) Those with longer hair have been flocking to their hairdressers on masse to embrace a new look.
Regardless, there’s no denying that long bob hairstyles are one of the most timeless hairstyles you can choose, that they look fabulous whatever the hair-type or colour, and 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.
