The Streisand “Lob” (Long Bob) Hairstyle

Barbra Streisand has been rocking variations of the “Lob” (long bob) haircut in varying lengths since 1985. Over the years she has worn this look with and without wispy bangs, straight and with waves and crimps for texture and body. The lob is a haircut that universally flatters nearly all hair types, textures and face shapes. The length is between a bob haircut and long hair. The look is typically cut just above, at or below shoulder level. It can be a blunt cut, graduated or with soft layers. Unlike a bob, the extra inches of this look offer more styling flexibility while still keeping hair off your back. Hairstylist Bryce Scarlett of Moroccanoil salon says “It’s a way to make a bold change but it still feels very feminine and it’s not quite as big of a commitment as going very short.” This easy to style, ageless haircut has grown in popularity over the years and is the hottest haircut in Hollywood. Which version of Barbra’s Lob has been your favorite over the years?
