A textured lob is a longer version of a bob cut with layers for added body and volume. The length varies, which could be grazing the neck, shoulders, or collarbone.
A textured haircut is perfect for women with natural waves. It’s also ideal for those who love wearing a messy beachy wave, done with a curling or flat iron.
The challenge is making sure that the back lays right. It’ll take more practice on using your heat tools. But since this style can look messy and undone, don’t worry about perfection too much.
Surprisingly, this chop complements shorter heights. Karacheban explains, “Having a lob concentrates the focus on your face’s length that gives you an appearance of being taller.”
It’s paramount that you consult your stylist to understand your hair type. They can figure out how much texture your locks will need.
Karacheban states, “Super fine hair can look fuller when cut shorter. But with a thicker mane, a lot of bulk has to be removed to give you a lightweight feel and add flow to the strands.”
Adopt this very chic haircut to amp up your everyday look! Here are the photos of trendy textured lob cuts and styles you must try.
#1: Tousled Lob with a Bright Money Piece
A tousled long bob with a money piece is a trending cut and color that many women are obsessed with! The bright blonde in the front will really make your features pop. Style with some messy waves for a beautiful lived-in look.
#2: Lived-In Lob Cut
Consider a lived-in long bob cut if you like the messy tousled look. The lob cut is universally flattering on all hair types. Fine hair can have seamless layers for volume and bulk will be removed in thicker hair to sit correctly. Wave with a curling iron and mess up with some light hair spray for that undone style.
#3: Layered Lob Cut for Fine Hair
Women with thinner strands should try a layered lob cut for fine hair. In general, a textured lob for fine hair is best on skinny strands because shorter lengths will actually make the hair look and feel fuller. As finer hair gets longer, it tends to weigh itself down, which is why a lob with texture is so flattering.
#4: Undone Shaggy Lob
The undone shaggy lob is the shaggy bob that everyone is talking about! While the textured lob with curtain bangs has been very popular, this version takes the fringe a bit shorter, creating a more modern, edgy effect around the face.
#5: Medium-Length Cut with Waves
Women with smokey, silvery hues should try a medium-length cut with waves. This heavily textured style looks great with creative hair colors because the shorter length helps remove processed, dry ends and makes your locks look shinier and healthier.
#6: Wavy Long Blunt Bob
The wavy long blunt bob is the “it girl” haircut you’ve been waiting for! If you’re looking for a fashion-forward, on-trend hairstyle, opt for a blunt textured lob.

This medium-length crop will actually remove extra weight from inside your style, making your hair much more manageable on a day-to-day basis.
#10: Choppy Lob Haircut
Women who crave extra volume will love a choppy lob haircut. The choppy textured lob brings a boost of body to your lengths as well as volume at the roots due to the heavy use of texturizing and the shorter lengths. Pro Tip: For an extra “oomph,” style your lob with a bodifying mousse, like Amika’s “Plus Size Volume & Body Mousse.”
#11: Shoulder-Length Bob with Curtain Bangs
A shoulder-length bob with curtain bangs is the perfect combination of fresh and classic, and a great way to change up your look. Bob wearers looking to update their typical crop should ask for a textured lob with a fringe.
#12: Textured Long Bob for Square Faces
Try a textured long bob if you have a square face! Women with a square face shape will love the effects of a medium-length textured bob. The soft inversion of this cut leaves extra length around the face, which softens the jawline and cheekbone areas.
#13: Messy Shoulder-Length Bob
Women looking for a textured lob for straight hair will love the messy shoulder-length bob. This voluminous cut will give straighter strands some room to breathe as they bounce back to life. Pro Tip: To recreate that messy, perfectly undone texture at home, invest in a good dry shampoo. Second (and third) day hair always “messes” best!
#14: Low-Maintenance Blunt Lob for Round Faces

#15: Side-Parted Lob for Women Over 50

#18: Long Textured Bob for Women Over 40

Women with thick hair rejoice! The long angled bob cut is your new best friend! This lob style makes thick, coarse hair more manageable and easier to maintain.

#23: Lob with Thin Bangs for Women Over 70
A textured lob haircut with bangs, like a lob with thin bangs, is most flattering for women over 70. If you find your hair a bit more lifeless than usual, opt for a shorter lob crop. Taking a bit of length off and adding a thin, textured fringe can completely transform the way your hair falls.
#24: Long Bob with an Undercut
Women with thick hair should try a long bob with an undercut. A wavy textured lob haircut can often “bell out” on women with thicker strands, but adding an undercut to your ‘do will allow your crop to lay smoother for longer.
