by Effie Orfanides

Celebrities are proving every day that the lob — the term for a long bob — is still very trendy despite what beauty professionals predicted for 2017. Several celebs are chopping off their signature locks to rock the look, and we love how versatile it is.

Sure, it turned out to be a faux lob, but as you can see, Emily Ratajkowski proves that the hair length is so versatile. She added some soft waves and a side part for the Golden Globes, but she can also wear it straight or part her hair in the center if she wanted.

In 2017, Khloe Kardashian continues working hard on her incredible Revenge Body, but we’re equally jelly of her incredible, glam lob. We love how she rocks this cool cut that is shorter in the back and wavy all over.

Selena Gomez also tried the fringe-look with her lob, chopping off those signature long locks, and it looks awesome. It’s fun and flirty—perfect for her nights out with rumored new beau, The Weeknd!


Nina Dobrev



The Vampire Diaries actress kissed her long brunette hair buh-bye in 2017. Nina Dobrev‘s deep part gives her incredible volume, and we think the lob is super flattering on her!


Naya Rivera Dorsey




On Glee, Naya Rivera Dorsey was known for her long, luscious locks, but holy smokes: These lob-tacular curls are everything. They have plenty of bounce and fun, but they still ooze glamour.

How amazing is Halle Berry‘s lob? Not only do we like the highlights, but we adore the bangs. Perhaps the best part of having bangs with a lob is that they will grow out and fit right in when you get tired of them!


Jessica Chastain



The actress showed off her well-maintained lob before the Golden Globes. Her look is classic and effortless! Basically, Old Hollywood called and they want Jessica Chastain back.

How rocker chic is Demi Lovato‘s lob? It’s the perfect length and some longer pieces give her an edgy, asymmetric look.


Emilia Clarke



When she isn’t riding dragons, Emilia Clarke wears her hair in a perfect lob that is lighter on the ends thanks to balayage. We can’t get enough of this stunning ombre look!


Priyanka Chopra

Quantico badass Priyanka Chopra puts a heavy “L” on the lob, using a bit more length and face-framing waves to make a haircut worthy of the red carpet and chasing down baddies on TV.

Lily Collins‘ lob shows us that the haircut is really easy to manage and looks fabulous even on a casual day out.

We love supermodel Jourdan Dunn‘s totally classic and sleek bob that can go from Mom-mode to catwalk. Dunn is proving that a modern take on a classic hair is always a good move, with the ever-so slight ombre and piecey ends.


Lucy Hale



Lucy Hale’s lob is cut with a fringe that looks awesome. This cut really brings the lob into 2017, changing it slightly, giving it an edge, and it looks extra badass in Hale’s new super-dark hair coloring.
