Inverted Lob With Long Layers
The lob is one of the hottest styles in hair today. From celebrities to everyday people, this look is everywhere! The lob is a great- looking, low-maintenance style that anyone can wear. Whether your hair is straight, wavy or curly, the lob offers ease and elegance.
The most replicated style of the lob is Jennifer Aniston's cut, which is an inverted lob. It rests just below the collar bone in front and is slightly shorter in the back with layering just around the ends to make it slightly frame the face. For straight hair, this is a wash-and-go style. For wavy or curly hair, the hair will need to be flat ironed. A dab of anti-frizz cream or gel is all this style needs to remain looking good.
This is another inverted lob option. It is shown here without layers, but it can be worn with light layering. This version has a very long side bang parted to each side, and nearly anyone can wear this style. Curly or wavy hair should be flat ironed to get the straight look, but this cut also works well leaving the hair curly or wavy. Either way, a curl cream with anti-frizz serum or smoothing cream should be used to maintain the style.

Love the Lob
The lob looks great, is very flattering, and needs very little product to maintain the style, although it does need some form of anti-frizz product, especially in humid conditions. This style can give the appearance of a longer neck, and an inverted lob can give the appearance of weight loss. These are just a few of the many other reasons to love the lob.
