In our first installment of New Year, New Hair we talked about the fact that it is now creeping well into February and many of us have not hit our favorite hair salon to dial in our new look for 2016.
A few days ago, we were showing how finding the right cut for the texture of your hair is really what is going to remain trending in hair salons through 2016. And we gave you a few great examples. It isn’t a must to read Part 1 right now, but I highly recommend that you click that first link and check it out after reading over this article!
Year of the Lob?
We saw many a bob, a few lobs, and tons of people over the last couple of years who got infected with whatever bug it was that stung Miley Sirus … women haphazardly lopping off their locks left and right …
2016 will see a strong resurgence of the long-lob and lob-ish cuts. Like we eluded to in Part 1, finding the cut for the texture of your hair is how you get your hair to work with you, instead of against you, and lob-type cuts work quite well with many faces and many texture types. The lob allows for easily styled hair for the professional woman, yet some air-drying and a shake or two of the head and you’re in sexy & fun mode.

Remember how we mentioned finding the cut for your hair’s texture? Well, Lobs work well with many methods of creating depth and EXTRA texture without out looking choppy and stylist-made. I’m sure the stylist at your favorite hair salon would agree with us on this. You can get great added-texture without it looking artificial and this flawlessly natural aspect is another reason why you’ll see this style much in 2016.

Everybody has different hair, so if you have any doubts, be sure to run these tips by your stylists at the hair salon you frequent to make sure they are right for you.
Your stylist is awesome, and gave you a gorgeous lob-cut, but how do you achieve that celebrity-esque exquisitely f*&%ed up, but still stunningly beautiful look?
To get that perfectly messy long-bob try this: Wrap your hands around a can of Davines Texturizing Spray —or you can use their Dry Shampoo— and hit your roots, keeping the rest of your hair pulled and spraying from a good 12 inches away. Do your hair one section at a time, while being very careful to stay away from the ends. Doing this (slowly and not getting ANY product on the ends) will make layers that you can just rough up and shake out into pure sunny-day awesomeness!
