39 Coolest Long Choppy Bob Haircuts for That Beachy Lob Look
A long choppy bob is a shoulder-length cut with jagged and textured ends that softens the style. Its versatility is one of its best assets. It appears stunning on either sleek and wavy hair, with or without bangs.
Before you get this beachy lob cut, “a thorough consultation is key,” says Georgia-based stylist, Kristin Valdosta. Consider your routine and your lifestyle by asking, “do I want to be still able to pull it up in a ponytail?” And, “how much time do I have to commit to styling it?”
Yes, a choppy lob hairstyle is quicker to jazz up, but keep in mind that you still need to allot some of your time to do so.
Valdosta loves texturizing products such as the Undressed by Kevin Murphy. It’s a lightweight, creamy-textured paste that polishes and pieces the hair. She also recommends the Sexy Hair Creme 2 Powder Play for women who need volume and control.
This choppy haircut may not work on a certain texture and density. If that happens, ask your hairstylist how you should style your hair. It’s also crucial that you know everything about its maintenance to keep the shape.
“Women sometimes don’t realize that the smallest bit of grow-out can make a big difference,” Valdosta notes. She adds, “a shoulder-grazing, choppy long bob cut tends to bounce off and flip out, so a trim every 4-6 weeks is necessary, depending on how fast the tresses grow out.”
