Lob Hair - Mid Length Hair Inspiration
Rex

Shoulder length hair, once run of the mill has recently had a glam lob overhaul. With everyone from Selena Gomez to Bella Hadid going for the chop this year, medium length lobs are set to still be the hottest 'do in town.

Flattering on basically everyone, it's the cool girl way to work shoulder length hair when you're stuck in that inbetweeny 'I'm growing out my hair but I've got no idea what to do with it' rut.

From Kim K's wet look 'do and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's textured dream , to Jessica Alba's old Hollywood waves and Kerry Washington's natural curls, here's the best lob hairstyles in the biz so your mid length hair can look awesome.

The model, actress and author stepped out last night to receive the Hero award from the Trevor Project (an American organisation which provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services for LGBTQ youth) sporting a new shoulder length poker straight lob.

Delevingne previously shaved her head for her role in Fashion In A Year back in 2017 and since then has been growing it out, rocking an enviable pixie crop in the process. Now it seems that the Brit model is working her way back to her signature flowing blonde locks, working a mid-length 'do en route.

Where do we start? The matchy matchy burnt red lipstick and eyeshadow. The major sequin dress. And that hair. Yup, Margot Robbie slayed us with yet another epic hair look, rocking side swept, effortlessly undone curls that might just be the cool girl glam lob of our dreams. Correction: it definitely is.

Styled by celeb hairstylist and the man behind Robbie's next level hair game recently, Bryce Scarlett, Robbie's romantic twist on classic Hollywood waves gave the whole look an 80s disco twist that we are seriously feeling.

If there was ever a reason to stay strong to last year's obsession with the lob, it's this 'do. Obsessed.
