When it comes to classic hairstyles, they don't come more timeless than the lob. With less drama (and less upkeep) than an Anna Wintour–inspired bob but a little more edge than long locks, the lob is the perfect in-between hairstyle that never goes out of style. Bonus: It suits every face shape, so there's no risk of remorse after your visit to the hairdresser.
But what exactly is a lob? Well, it's exactly what it sounds like: a long bob. It's a one-length cut that generally sits at a mid-length, shoulder height—although, you can get away with your strands falling just a smidge above or below that. Experiment with centre and side partings to switch up how your lob looks daily, but a lob hairstyle also pairs well with a fringe—whether that's a full, one-length fringe or wispier French-girl bangs.
And if you're considering embracing the lob for this season, you're in luck. There are so many examples of celebrities stepping out with the chicest mid-length hairstyles that I thought it would be rude not to put all of that great lob inspiration in one place. Ahead you'll find 27 of the best celebrity lob haircuts to give you inspiration for your next salon visit.
