To Lob, Or Not To Lob?

I don’t know if this can quite fit into the Personals section. I’ve always had long hair. Except in kindergarten when I had a bob with bangs and I still deny it to this day (the memories will fade, right?) If you ask almost any girl, she will agree that having longer hair is like a safety blanket. Even if you’re outfit consists of leggings and a tshirt, you can get away with anything if your hair is on point. For the last four or five months, I have fallen in love with the “lob,” or long bob that isn’t really a bob at all, but a shoulder skimming haircut. Even when messy, it still looks polished, and will forever be chic. Alexa Chung could be credited with starting the craze, but since then, we have seen numerous celebrities rocking the chop. My favorite, while I am not a huge fan of Kylie Jenner, is her recent cut.

For whatever reason, we have grown to associate being feminine with long, bombshell hair. It gives us that extra “oomph” in our step and that one hair flip raises confidence off the charts. I think the quote “your clothes shouldn’t wear you” can be applied to hair as well. Your hair is just another permanent accessory. While you need to love it and take care of it, why not have some fun? I am still not sold on “lobbing” my hair just yet, but maybe I’ll take the plunge. After all, I did say fail harder in my goldplaited interview, right?

  1. oh my gosh!!! This post is my brain. I had long hair with the most perfect color and I took that exact picture of Kylie into my hair stylist and said I want this. And I did it!! Ah I am still getting used to it and how to style it. I agree longer hair is way easier to work with.. but I was ready for a change and am really happy I did it. I used my hair as a safety net, especially the long Victoria’s Secret curls but I wanted to be a bit more fashiony & chic. If you have any good ideas or products to style this please let me know! xx
