A cut that works for everyone? Introducing the LOB!

Hello darlings!
This season's hottest cut is one that flatters virtually every hair type and face shape. It can look youthful and carefree or polished. It's the Lob, or long bob.
Jennifer Aniston- The head of hair that launched thousands of  cuts back in the '90's with the "Rachel" now trying the long bob, which promises to be equally as popular.
This shoulder grazing style is universally appealing and works when styled both super-sleek or with beachy waves.  It looks equally amazing with a middle or side part, with a side-swept fringe or no bangs at all.

Rachel McAdams incorporates side swept bangs.
If you happen to have a round face the length of the cut won't showcase roundness as it falls beneath the jawline, in fact the lob works to accentuate cheekbones. If you have a longer face, that may appear on the thinner side with some cuts, a choppy lob looks great - shorter layers create balance and width. It really does work on everyone!

Oh,  Nicole! A sophisticated glossy lob.
Fashion forward celebrities like Nicole Richie and Kate Moss have been sporting this 'do as of late, it's a great way to experience a versatile style like the bob while still keeping some length. As a lady with long hair, I'm attached to my length, but this style is super appealing and has me considering a change-up.

Leigh Lezark keeps length while still lobbing.

 If you're looking for a change this might be the cut for you. Perhaps you don't want to take the plunge into full on bob-dom (which, I might add  is also adorable). The Lob can be a great step in that direction though.
If you ask your stylist for one thing, ask them to cut your hair shorter and straight across in the back, and longer in the front. You'll avoid the #1  pitfall of long bobs, which is their tendency to look too soccer mom-ish. You want the front to skim your shoulders.
Lobbyist: Olivia Palermo's center part.
 What makes some celebs' lobs so rockin' is the uneven finish at the bottom. But if you have fine hair, piecey can turn stringy. The thicker your hair, the choppier your stylist should make the ends.
Schedule an appointment, our expert stylists are looking forward to helping you determine which type of lob will be most flattering and fun for you.
At Ferricchia it's all about making a style work for you, the client- this a a great cut for everyone- so we hope to see you very soon!

Stay lovely,
Team Ferricchia
