Trendy Tresses: The Lob (Long Bob) is Back Thanks to Kim Kardashian

Roc Nation Grammy Brunch 2015This past weekend, Kim Kardashian-West debuted a new hairstyle and its got people talking – in a good way.

The mom and reality TV star kicked Grammy weekend off with a bang, as she took to her Instagram (of course) on Friday (Feb. 6) to share her new ‘do with her 26 million followers, saying,“I cut my hair short today.”

The selfie-obsessed starlet traded in her long signature tresses for a “blunt, textured shoulder length bob with a heavy side bang,” as her hairstylist Gregory Russell described. We just call it a long bob, also known as a lob, and it’s pretty fierce if you ask us.


The lob has been the savior of style-savvy celebrities for decades, and a trend the masses have flocked to time and time again. From Kerry Washington to Ciara and Taraji P. Henson, the lob is the go-to, low-maintenance hairstyle for many. Yet, when Mrs. West made us fall in love with this look yet again, opting for a bedhead-like chic and tousled waves. And with spring right around the corner, we’re sure Kim will be the hairspiration of many hoping to try out a new look, whether you love or hate the seemingly vain star.

What are your thoughts on Kim’s new ‘do? Will you be going in on this tress trend too?
