The trend du jour for 2015 was undoubtedly the bob – the shorter and sassier the better. But with 2016 being declared the year of the lob (the long bob) there’s a critical in-between area – that dreaded growing-out period – that can be difficult to manage and style. Enter the wob: the wavy lob that’s having a serious hair moment.
The cool style is everywhere and on everyone – the genius is that it works for all face shapes: round (Kristen Bell), square (Miranda Kerr) or oval (Olivia Munn), it all works.
It’s got that done-but-not-done appeal: an effortless look that, we all know, actually takes some effort. But not a lot! With the right textured haircut, it’s easy to achieve with a few styling products and a curly brush to add volume when drying – or a ghd or curling tong if you’ve got the time and want a more defined wave.
Feeling inspired? Lucky for us, the wob has got a legion of celebrity fans who have trialled it for us. Here’s some wob inspiration to get you thinking.
