The Choppy Lob?… Yes, please!

The choppy lob. The never-ending trend. The bob made a big comeback a few years ago and is lasting longer than anyone expected. The destiny of all classic cuts.

Long, short, brushing the collar bone, with inward or outward curves, smooth or textured, with or without a fringe, layered or wavy. The bob is as trendy as ever, in any length or style, but 2022 is certainly the year of the Choppy Lob, or Choppy Long Bob.

But why is this variation taking all the social trend setters and celebs by storm? The mere fact that Alexa Chung has been owning it for a while now already makes it super cool.

Exaggerated layering, natural movement, and a slightly grungy texture. These are the basic ingredients for a successful Choppy Lob recipe that checks all the boxes for today’s trendiest look. The secret to a perfectly wavy bob? Drying certainly plays a fundamental role and for the choppy bob, the best thing is a state-of-the-art messy, natural, and tousled look…
