Not just a fad
Stylists say that this hairstyle is not a short-term trend. “Lob will be around for a long time as it has a youthful appeal,” points out Dorris. Talking about its longevity, Coleen says, “It has a very international vibe to it. The good thing about the lob is that it’s not too short or long. It flatters almost every hair texture & face structure. I see it staying around well into this year.”
Desi outfit versus western costumes
Coleen says, “I think that it looks better with Western outfits, but you can tie a low bun when you are wearing Indian attire. It’s possible to do that as your hair is longer in the front & goes all the way back. You can add a hairpiece & do a lot more, too. Also, today everything is so fluid; women with the shortest haircuts look stunning in saris. So, there are no hard & fast rules.”
Who has better fun?
Dorris lists Deepika & Anushka as her favourites. “They carry it beautifully & with a lot of confidence,” she says. Coleen, whose vote goes to Deepika, shares, “She has got the height, the face… she has what it takes to take this look to the next level.”
It’s versatile & low-maintenance
“You can do a lot with this particular style. You can put it up, or let it loose, or style it in many other ways. I am glad that our actresses are being more adventurous & doing fun stuff with their hair,” says Coleen. Talking about the versatility of the hairdo, she adds, “You can adjust it, obviously. You can texturise it, or change the parting. You can also add layers to it & make it like a messy lob, or have beach waves, or go very sleek.” Another factor that works in favour of this look is that one doesn't have to visit the parlour too often. “Unlike looks like the pixie cut, you don’t have to go for a trim at short intervals. You can let it grow out, as it doesn’t look awkward or out of shape at any stage,” points out Coleen.
