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.

Stylist Olga Karacheban of Salem, Oregon loves a long bob haircut, especially the messier one. “This bob style is meant to be a tousled imperfect look,” she points out.

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.

Adding texture with a light brown ombre to your traditional bob haircut can make it more interesting. First, you and your stylist need to find the right bob length for you. Then, layers are added for extra volume. This also gives the hair a more ‘lived-in’ feel when styled. For maximum effect, apply a texture product on your pre-curled hair. After putting the product, shake your hair out and shape it with your hands and a comb as you prefer.

If you have thick hair and want to try a trendy cut, ask for a textured bob. A razor cut is one of the best ways to remove heaviness in your hair and add shape. This will also shape your hair to go inward and not bulk out. You’ll want to maintain your cut every 4-6 weeks.

Opt for the perfect shaggy lob with a money piece and middle part. Use a point-cutting technique to create texture around your face. This look is great for adding movement without sacrificing length.

Then tousle them using your fingers to really show off the texture.

#12: Tousled Gray Hair with a Center Part

If you have naturally flat, matured color hair, you should ask for a razor-layered cut. The layers will remove weight. The texturizing from the razor will be best for a non-choppy look. The cut will also add movement to your hairstyle and height up top.

#18: Fresh Chestnut Brown Long Bob

If you have chestnut brown hair, consider a fresh take with a long bob. An important thing to remember is that the thicker the hair, the more texturizing the style will need. After layering, use a razor to etch out weight by taking 2-inch-wide sections of hair and running the razor through the midshaft to the ends. One of the easiest ways to style this cut is to use a 3-barrel waver, such as Ion’s hair waver, to create a loose, natural-looking bend.

7 levels of lift and golden blonde have been on everyone’s list, at least once. However, it’s the modern lived-in feel that makes it, not your mama’s hair color. If you think you can go through a blonding service, or if you are considering a new shade, go for the warm/neutral palette.

#22: Balayage Lived-In Long Bob

Your hair will absolutely adore the textured depth and dimension of this lived-in, balayage long bob. Since a balayage can be executed in a number of ways, tell your stylist where you’d like to see more depth in your hair versus where you’d like to develop dimension. It’s important to understand the disadvantage of going darker at the roots than your natural hair color. Doing so will create a line of demarcation as your hair grows out, and you’ll need to make more trips to the hair salon for a quick root touch-up.

The modern chic long bob is one of our favorites! The cut looks great on all face shapes and can be detailed with the texture to suit your features. Whether you want to wear your hair straight or wavy, this lob cut will embrace your natural hair texture. Towel dry hair well before adding volumizing mousse; using a large round brush, lift your hair straight up for maximum volume. You may choose to add more waves with a curling wand, but be sure to leave the ends straight and finish with a texture spray.

#24: Slight A-Line Bob with Waves

If you would like to elongate your neckline, an angled bob can be beneficial. The elevated back lifts the hair off your shoulders. And, makes your neck appear longer. If you can, try straightening the ends to give more of a textured look when styling.

Women with thinner strands should try a layered lob cut for fine hair.
