Now that my hair has grown past the in-between chin and shoulders phase, I am finally in the lob phase. For those of y'all that don't know, the lob is a long bob. I've pretty much had a lob my entire life, and really think it's the easiest hairstyle to maintain. I personally like the lob when it's wavy or curly, because when it's too straight it verges into the dangerous "typical mom hairstyle" territory.
I personally don't use any heat products on my hair anymore (making strides), but using a flat-iron to make waves is a great way to style a lob. The Beauty Department has great tutorials on how to make beachy looking waves for short hair!
