Pippa Middleton debuted a new hairstyle on May 8th at London’s Waitrose Summer Party: the lob. After seeing her new ‘do, it got me thinking about what I want my hair to look like for the Summer. I have very curly hair and hate to do my hair myself (Mattson and my friends can attest to my blow-dry addiction) so I need to have a hairstyle that will be easy for me to maintain and also that will keep me cool during the hot Dallas summer. For 15 years I had my hair in a short bob and then after I graduated from college I decided to grow it out. I had it long for 2 years and then cut it into a bob again last September. It has grown out again to a little bit below my collarbone and I am ready to trim it up for Summer.
Pippa (and celebrities from Gwenyth Paltrow to Olivia Palermo) have inspired me to do the lob. The lob is a longer version of the bob and has a length that falls between the chin and the collarbone. It has been having a moment this year and I think it so chic! Its a fun look that seems to be low-maintenance, versatile, and cool for the hot, lazy Summer days ahead (not to mention my hair will be healthy after receiving a good trim). Best part about the lob? It looks great on any face shape so I know that it will complement my round face well. What hairstyle are you going to do for Summer?
