What do you get when you cross a classic bob with naturally textured hair which cascades just a few inches below the chin?  You get a spotlight-stealing Long Bob known in the hair world as a LOB.

Long bobs, or “lobs,” are classic hairstyles which can be adjusted to look fabulous with any type of face shape.  Lobs are an easy hairstyles to create.

They can be styled super glam,  when they're amped up with texture, or more casual for everyday wear.  Lobs can be tousled for a flirty freshness or worn sleek, shiny and bone straight.  They can be worn with or without a fringe.

Change up the hairstyle by combining a sleek straight long fringe with a loosely waved overall texture.

If you want to create a sculpted long bob bursting with sassy texture follow the steps below:

1. Cleanse detangled hair in lukewarm water with your favorite cleansing formula ranging from Shampoo or Diluted Shampoo (DS) to Low Poo, No Poo or Conditioner Only Wash (Co-Wash).

2.  Rinse cleanser completely out of hair.

3.  Apply a rinse-out conditioner from the top of the ears down to the ends.

4.  Use fingers and/or a wide detangling comb to detangle conditioner saturated strands.  Work slowly from the ends to the roots.

9.  Blow dry hair with a long finger diffuser to amp up natural texture.

10.  Once hair is dry, separate hair into 2 1/2" strands.

11.  Set hair in hot rollers from front to back and sideways (beside the front, which is set forward)

12.  When hair has cooled, remove rollers and use fingers to reform the curls and pin against the scalp to cool and set.

13.  After hair is completely set, unpin the curls.

14. Bend over at the waist and gently shake strands to loosen.

15.  Use fingers to style and tousle strands.  Use a rat tail comb to carefully arrange target strands.

16.  Spray hair with a weightless shine spray.

If you prefer you can unpin the curlers, bend over at the waist and shake curls loose.  Rake hands through hair to loosen curls and smooth over with a touch of styling cream.
