Long bobs: Cut it layered Vs. blunt. Lob it off!

  • v/s
Here are our two favorite versions of the long bob : blunt or layered. So fashionable!

Today's Match the Look pits two of our favorite long bobs against one another: the lovely layered lob vs. blunt retro bangs. Pick a side in this lob-off!

The layered long lob

The hairstyle: The success of this flirty hairstyle is all in the art of layering, giving this easy-to-manage style lots of natural-looking volume. Falling around the shoulder line, it's also a great transitional style if you're going short-to-long or vice versa.

Style the look: Smooth but not flat, that's your goal with this layered lob. The Liss Unlimited Smoothing cream from the Serie Expert collection is the ideal blow-dry treatment for frizz-free silky locks that retain their natural movement.

What the editors say: We love how the "Rachel" hairstyle (Friends) is still just as popular today – and with good reason! A few subtle highlights or a balayage can really lift the look into 2018.

The bob with blunt bangs

The hairstyle: Blunt bangs are one of the best ways to really showcase your eyes and, while you will have to book regular trims with your stylist to keep them at optimum level, they're easy to style, whether you prefer super sleek or a little more tousled.

Style the look: A common error when it comes to bangs is over-styling, leaving the hair limp and laid flat against the forehead. Instead, opt for a light hairspray like Tecni.ART's Natural Finish , which prevents frizz and ensures long-lasting hold with a natural texture. The result: your bangs feel light, under control and retain their body.

What the editors say: Looking for a different style to pair with your blunt bangs? Why not go retro and try a mullet-inspired cut? The different levels contrast with the sheer blunt fringe, adding intrigue and a sense of playfulness.
