Whether you call it a long bob or shorten it to the "lob," it's no secret that this haircut is truly the haircut to try right now. Why is the lob so popular? Simple. Versatility. It can be worn sleek, curly, wavy, messy or any texture in between. It's not too short to get into a pony tail or a bun, but it's not so long that it takes an hour to style everyday. The lob haircut will grow out well without needing monthly shaping maintenance.

This year's long bob is all about using natural texture and waves to quickly style and go. Shattered (heavily textured) ends will give you a piecey messy look, or go for blunt edges for a style that stands out without being too busy.

If you're looking for a hairstyle that's different, but aren't ready to commit to short hair, click through to see some of the most inspiring lob haircuts that all the celebrities are wearing right now.

Taylor Swift's Lob Haircut

Taylor Swift shocked the world when she traded her long curls in for a sleek bob. Her haircut has evolved into an angled lob, which is excellent for her long neck. Angling your long bob (making it shorter in the back than in the front) is a fun way to add to the shape of your lob without going short around your face. Plus the longer pieces in the front will still cooperate when you want to pull it back.
