TOP TRENDING SHORT HAIRSTYLES RIGHT NOW…
The 90s called, it wants its lob back! Returning from its short but not-so-sweet hiatus back in 2019, the lob (otherwise known as the long bob or supermodel bob) is the perfect in-between. Long enough to style yet short enough to feel liberated, this mid-length look has had a makeover. Defined by its 90s flair, it’s sleek, shiny and features styled inwards ends.
How to style a 90s lob haircut:
- Before you turn to your hair dryer, remember to prep and protect your tresses with your favourite heat protector. Spritz the formula over damp or dry hair from roots to tips, then comb through the product to ensure it’s evenly distributed.
- Next, apply a volumising mist or mousse and blow dry your hair in every direction to loosen it up.
- Then, take your blow drying brush and layer by layer dry your hair inwards to give it a sleek inwards finish. To amp up the volume, focus on the roots for that nostalgic 90s fullness.
- To ensure your look holds all day and night, finish off with a spritz of hair spray.
