Meet The Expert

Annagjid “Kee” Taylor is a celebrity hairstylist who has worked with Keke Palmer, Tika Sumpter, and Tiffany Haddish.

“​​A lob is a longer length bob that typically sits between the shoulders and the collarbone, compared to a bob that ends at the chin or jawline,” says Taylor. “Lobs typically have a more relaxed style and texture at the ends. It is a chic option for those who want to pull their hair out of their faces without committing to long or short locks!”

“A lob’s versatile length makes it a flattering choice for all,” shares Taylor. “However, certain styles suit different face shapes and hair textures better. Straight or slightly wavy lobs work wonders for round faces, while oval faces can rock a side-swept bang or a more textured, a-line cut. Heart and square-shaped faces shine with a mid-length, textured style. In short, the lob is a universally chic option. I suggest consulting with your stylist first to see what style suits you best.”
