It looks as if she simply grew out a traditional bob a few more inches. 02 of 19 Yvonne Strahovski Ethan Miller/Getty Images Add a little flair to your lob by using a curling iron and styling products to get waves. 03 of 19 Finola Hughes Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images Actress Finola Hughes' hair has beautiful chestnut highlights and gentle waves that you can get simply by washing your hair, adding a curl-inducing conditioner and twisting all over. Let the waves air dry or use a diffuser. 04 of 19 Katie Couric Jason Kempin/Getty Images Katie Couric's look is versatile. Anyone from high-powered career women to soccer moms can rock this look. Stand out from the crowd by coloring your hair a rich golden brown like the news anchor's. 05 of 19 Jessie J Joseph Okpako/Getty Images 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. 06 of 19 Ashley Greene Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images 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. 07 of 19 Olivia Palermo Jason Kempin/Getty Images Olivia Palermo has one of the longest lobs on this list.

Women with long or oval faces should think twice before getting a middle part. 08 of 19 Tori Spelling Jason Merritt/Getty Images Tori Spelling's curled, bleached blond bob flatters the actress more than the long mane she sported during her "90210" days. 09 of 19 Alice Eve's Bob From the Front Valerie Macon/Getty Images Alice Eve's slightly mussed, golden blond bob really flatters her. 10 of 19 Alice Eve's Bob From the Back Jason Merritt/Getty Images Get a better idea of the full lob look with this view of Alice Eve's hair from the back. 11 of 19 Soleil Moon Frye Frederick M.

Blige's look but your hair isn't thick enough to pull it off and you don't want hair extensions, consider Wendy Glenn's bob with bangs style. 14 of 19 Helen Mirren's Long Gray Bob Andreas Rentz/Getty Images Helen Mirren proves that just because a woman reaches a certain age doesn't mean she has to completely chop her hair off. Older women can also rock the bob look. 15 of 19 Joan Rivers: A Classic Lob for Women of a Certain Age Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images Late comedienne Joan Rivers was a fashion icon.
