To lob or not to lob? That is the question…

Lob HaircutWhat is a lob you ask?  A lob is a long bob, which by traditional definition is not a bob at all.  The shoulder skimming strands provide a universally flattering haircut for all faces, features and hair types.  Recently, many celebrities have snipped their strands in favor of the lovely lob look.  Vanessa Hudgens, Kristen Stewart, Ashley Tisdale, Miranda Lambert, Sienna Miller, Hillary Duff, Minka Kelly, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting and Jessica Alba are just some of the stars who have trimmed their tresses lately.  The lob has many variations and the sexy and sweet simplistic style can be worn with or without bangs, straight, wavy, curly or textured.  It’s versatile enough to be worn up or down, sleek or volumized, casual or formal and the possibilities seem endless.  So, I ask you, to lob or not to lob?
