The Low-Effort Yet Elegant Way Everyone’s Styling Their Grown-Out Bobs This Summer

If I'm being completely honest, I'm a little bit bored of bob hairstyles. As a beauty editor, I have seen enough bob hair trends to last me a lifetime, and although they all look incredible, I'm ready for something different this summer. It seems I'm not the only one, as after a quick scroll on Instagram, it's clear to me that there is a new style taking over, and this time it requires a little more length. Yep that's right, it seems that everyone from Hailey Bieber to Zendaya is growing out their bob in favour of a longer, layered look that is perfect for the warmer months.

This laidback, low-maintenance style is pretty much all I can think about right now. Not only is it giving me cool, beachy vibes, but thanks to the longer length, you won't have to worry about visiting the hairdresser every few weeks for a trim. Plus, it works for all hair types as you'll see below.

So, whether you're bored of seeing super short hair trends or you're thinking about growing out your bob hairstyle for the spring and summer months, I highly recommend that you keep on scrolling to see why the long, layered bob hairstyle might be the new trend for you...
