Hair inspo? Chop Chop… LOB LIFE!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

It Girl style guaranteed with LOB LIFE. Longer than the traditional bob, the super-versatile lob look was borne out of the desire to go short-to-longer. Now sooo popular with those wanting time out from tumbling tresses; this gorgeous mid-length look is a style sensation that’s here to stay.

Luke says

Hot tip on finishing your look from Luke Pluckrose, Creative Director at Saks UK: “Blowdry and swoosh hair into desired place. Then it’s time to play. Volume and scrunch to add maximum texture to this blunt style.”

Our muse is L’Oréal ambassador Alexa Chung for owning oh-so many lob lengths over the years…



Saks UK’s resident Colour Queen, Sarah Clarke-Lee of Saks Art Team, says: “The good news is the lob works well with any hues. Colour science for our LOB LIFE look? We used the Saks Signature Root Melt technique for dark ashy blonde roots into seamless light caramel blonde” – gorgeous!
