Tempted to get a lob too? We’ve spoken to a few experts for all the tips and tricks!

Starting with Katie Allan, Creative Manager at Charles Worthington Salons to give us some advice if you are thinking of cutting your hair shorter this summer.

Katie advises ‘To achieve the ‘LOB’ (long bob) the hair needs to layered in a subtle way which can be done by layering the hair underneath. The hair then falls naturally with movement, whilst still looking thick and lustrous. Regular trims are essential for keeping the textured ends in tip top condition.’

At Charles Worthington Salons we have recently launched a new cutting technique called the ‘Cross-Shake’ which gives the ultimate in effortless style by slicing sections generously cross-ways from left to right, then top to bottom at specific points in the hair. It creates bespoke texture and the signature ‘shaken’ finish, at the same time giving fullness and relaxed movement. It suits all hair types as it is a beautifully bespoke way of layering and texturizing hair without leaving it thin and wispy.’

James Galvin, the Kerastase Ambassador says ‘The lob works best when cut roughly to collar bone length. The ends shouldn’t be too perfectly blunt cut so definitely add a bit of texture to the ends. A long layer around the bottom will help to remove some weight if you have thick hair. Have it cut in a centre parting to allow for versatility when moving your hair from side to side. Always style the hair very naturally making sure there is just enough texture to give your lob an un-fussy finish.’ – Just like Perrie!
