The A-List: Long Bob
It was the chop heard `round the world. In December of 2012, supermodel Karlie Kloss cut her mid-back length hair into a bob that hit mid-neck, for a Vogue feature. Rumor has it, she cried while her long locks were hitting the floor -- but all tears aside, she`s stuck with the chic cut ever since. Once her new style debuted, stars from all walks lined up outside of the salon to follow suit, creating a tidal wave of long bobs throughout Hollywood and beyond.
Light or dark, smooth or wavy, Kloss`s long bob always looks fashionable and flattering. No matter what your face shape or style, this versatile look can give you an instant upgrade into chic-dom!
Works Best On: Everyone! The long bob is one of the most versatile cuts around. With a few tweaks (i.e. bangs or no bangs, heavy or light layering), this cut can work on any face shape or hair type.
What to Avoid: Too-short layers are the long bob`s kryptonite. The secret to this flattering face-framer is to keep things long and loose. Make sure to tell your stylist to start layers under the chin.
Rules of Thumb:
- The long bob puts the focus right on top, so make sure you keep an eye on your color. Roots should be touchedup regularly.
- There are no rules when it comes to styling! The long bob can be worn six ways from Sunday, which is part of what makes it such a popular choice. If you have fine hair, though, spritz a little volumizer on damp strands to provide some lift.
