Long Bob: The Hair Trend to Look Out for in 2020

Halfway between a short bob and medium-length hair, we have the long bob! Over the years, it has managed to snag a spot in the list of timeless hairstyles you can rock any time of year.

A long bob for every hair type

It's easy to wear and can be rocked by women of all hair types. If you have fine hair, opt for a long straight bob and curtain bangs that'll give your hair more volume and bounce. Got thick hair? Perfect. This hairstyle will look great on you! It'll give your hair extra-extra density. And lucky for you, you can wear the bob any way you like: straight, layered or slightly longer in the front like Caroline Receveur's at the last L'Oréal Paris fashion show.

If you have curly, frizzy, or nappy hair, this haircut will give your hair more structure. A long bob will also help define your curls so you don't get that "rat tail" people with long and curly hair often end up with.

A long bob + accessories

Accessories used to clip or hold your hair in are making a comeback in 2020. Barrettes, headbands, hats, you name it! The long bob is easy to style. If you're into fashion, accessories may be the key to looking sharp and on-trend.

A long bob that's suitable for all hairstyles

Want to be able to switch up your hairstyle? Then the long bob is perfect for you, because it allows you to wear almost all of the hairstyles that are currently trending. Have a party to attend? Go for the wet look. It's easy: just slap some gel all over your hair and pull it back. You can also rock a ponytail or a low bun if you need a change from your everyday hairstyle. The side braids, which are very trendy in 2020, can also be worn with a long bob. Only updos require a little more skill.

As for coloring, it looks great with a balayage or ombré hair when slightly wavy, but is also perfect on a uniform color.

So what are you waiting for? Pick your bob!
