The longer bob with middle-parted bangs complements various face shapes, particularly oval, heart, and square.

It’s a versatile style that can be adjusted slightly to suit different face shapes and features.

#6: Chin-Length Front Layers on Long Bob

Add chin-length front layers to your long bob for a style change. This modern twist allows the hair to flow away from the face, a look that is very in style right now. Ask your stylist for a chin-length bang with long layers. This style can enhance the shape of your face. The pronounced swoop in the front will highlight your face, and the shorter length gives an illusion of longer length at the back. Use a medium round brush to blow-dry your hair and guide the front layers away from your face for a polished look.

#11: Lob Haircut with Soft Waves

A lob haircut with soft waves looks very feminine. For this hairstyle, you need long hair layers and fringe that reach your lips. Use a blow dryer and heat protectant, like Pureology’s 21 Leave-In Spray. Also, use a 3/4-inch iron around the middle of a hair shaft. Curling around the middle of a hair shaft gives your hair a textured look without making it too voluminous. Always comb your hair to finish the look with a soft feel.

Hair Texture and Thickness

“Any hair type can rock a ’90s lob,” Olivia begins. Straight, curly, or wavy; fine or thick – this cut suits them all. However, Olivia warns, “If you have very thick, coarse hair, especially with a big curl pattern, talk to your stylist.” This type might poof out, creating a less desired effect. So, a stylist’s advice is key for those with this hair type. The lob can add “elegance and a classic or textured look for women.”

Face Shape Considerations

When it comes to face shapes, the lob is a champ. “It’s good for any face shape,” Olivia explains, noting that the cut’s length should match the client’s face shape. Oval and heart shapes can go shorter, while round and square faces may benefit from a lob that sits on the shoulders to elongate the face. Olivia emphasizes communication with your stylist to achieve the perfect length, ensuring it doesn’t flip out, which can happen if it’s cut at an awkward length.

Styling Tips and Products

Styling is crucial for the ’90s lob. Olivia shares, “Texture spray is a big product to have. It’s good for all hair types.” For fine hair, she recommends volume mousse, and for coarse or curly hair aiming for a straight look, a smoothing cream is ideal. Olivia praises OWay Organics for their smoothing cream and nurturing drops, essential for adding shine and taming frizz.

Lifestyle Considerations

Whether you’re a working professional, a busy mom, or enjoying retirement, the ’90s lob is adaptable. Olivia suggests experimenting with products to find what works best for you. She also highlights the importance of styling tools like hair dryer brushes for volume, hot rollers for a blown-out look, and flat irons for a sleek finish. “Remember, achieving the look you want might require styling,” she reminds us.

Olivia Anton’s expertise shines through in her advice on embracing the ’90s lob. By considering your hair type, face shape, and lifestyle, you can rock this classic cut with confidence.
