19 Reasons To Get A Lob This Fall

Photographed by Tory Rust.
After a long summer of hot sun, chlorine, and salt water, your strands may not be looking their best. That's why fall is the perfect time for a hair makeover — and lately, we're loving a shoulder-grazing lob. A mid-length cut is totally versatile. You can wear it curly or straight, chopped up with lots of layers or cut bluntly at one length. If you're on the fence about what to do with your look, this is a good place to start.

And since it's never a good idea to go to your stylists without a realistic inspiration image (or five), we've rounded up some of our favorites. Flip through to see just how standout mid-length hair can actually be. Then call your salon to squeeze you in ASAP.
