The layers create a sense of depth and dimension, making the color stand out even more. The length of the hair is also versatile.

If you have coarse or thick hair and want layers to lighten it up, ask your stylist to do an undercut. This way, you can remove the interior weight before layering. As you age, so can your hair texture, so give this style a try, and you might fall back in love with your new texture.

#15: Blonde Layered Lob for Straight Hair

The blonde layered lob is a great hairstyle for naturally straight hair. If your hair is quite flat, you may want a lot of layers throughout.

If you want to add volume and shape to your thick flat hair, it’s best for you to get inverted layers. The stack of your layers will push your hair up.

Try to practice a good blowout to add more movement and smoothing to your hair.

#18: Fun Side-Parted Tousled Lob

The medium length is long enough to pull up, but the style is more interesting than long hair. If you want to wear your hair tousled and you don’t have a natural wave, try curling with a 1-inch iron, leaving the ends out. You’ll look attractive with the long bang draping backward off your face.

#19: Dark Blonde Lob with Wispy Ends

A dark blonde lob with wispy ends will be the ideal hairstyle for you if your hair is fine to medium. Ask your colorist what is the best shampoo to use to achieve maximum longevity of the color.
