The blunt lob is one of our favourite hairstyles (evident here and here), simply because it’s so chic and versatile, and can be worn straight or wavy. Judging by the latest red carpet appearances, the top celebrities seem to agree with us - and the best bit? Their hairstyles are a cinch to recreate at home. “A tong, straightener and hot rollers can seriously boost texture and add shape to your cut,” says hairstylist Elyston Hayden. “And to keep your short hair looking fresh, I recommend a haircut at least every six to eight weeks to ensure the baseline looks as sharp as possible.
The British actress looked as elegant as ever with her hair chopped off just to her shoulders and parted haphazardly for a more laidback approach. Wrap large sections of hair with a large-barrel tong, and tease it out with your fingers for a voluminous style.
The Orange Is The New Black actress proves that even those with fine hair can pull off a shorter hairstyle like a lob with grace. At home, spritz mid-lengths to ends with a texturising spray and scrunch with your hands.
Yes you can have short hair that looks voluminous, and Rachel McAdams proves it. To boost texture, wrap hair around a medium-barrel tong in random sections, then use hairspray to set the style.
Having short hair doesn’t mean you have to give up on rocking a wavy style. For tighter curls or waves, use a smaller barrel tong, and use your comb to loosen the style afterwards.
