Now is around the time when your desire for a dramatic hair change goes from innocent craving to exigent need. So, which will it be? A sharp bang? A '60s pixie? Or bolder, maybe? Bowl cuts and mullets are reportedly on trend. If we're talking low-stakes options, the answer is obvious. These lob-donning celebrities prove that a shoulder-skimming haircut is the safest way to be simultaneously timeless and cool.
Once you chop your strands to chin level or higher, the styling possibilities diminish with every inch of hair gone. The final step before that happens is called the lob. This collarbone-length —sometimes shorter, sometimes longer — cut is eternally fashionable without compromising on versatility. That is to say: You can still pull it into a low bun if need be.
There are a few celebrities who hardly ever stray from this length, such as Emma Stone, Reese Witherspoon, and Taylor Swift, and others who sport it on a more occasional basis, such as Bella Hadid and Khloe Kardashian. Just recently, Venus Williams debuted the ultimate cool-girl version while Selena Gomez proved that curly girls can rock a shoulder-grazing crop, too.
Five celebrity-approved lobs to inspire your summer hair transformation, ahead.
