Given the wearability, it's no surprise that lob inspiration is everywhere. So, to help you differentiate between all the adorable lobs on Instagram, we've rounded up this season's most wearable variations of the mid-length cut.
Whether your aesthetic is blunt and polished, styled with a center part, or you want to add some flair with bangs, shaggy texture, an A-line shape, or feathered layers, we have the lob for you. Check out the four trendiest takes on the cut, ahead, and schedule the salon appointment for the manageable chop to spend the rest of your summer feeling fresh.
