The middle part and darkness of Jessie J's lob makes the look appear somewhat severe. Soften the look with a side part or by getting a lob that's not so bluntly cut.

Actress Ashley Greene is famous for her role in the "Twilight" series movies and cut her hair so it could fit under a wig she wore for her role.

She grew out her gorgeous bob, which is flattering to her face. "I didn't have to go quite so short but I figured it's the only time I would ever do it... It's cute short, but I'll grow it back out," she said to InStyle magazine.

Olivia Palermo has one of the longest lobs on this list. Colored a rich chestnut brown and curled at the ends, this look flatters the actress's beautiful face. With her heart-shaped face, she can pull off a middle part, but not everyone can. Women with long or oval faces should think twice before getting a middle part.
