The new A-line lob is a classic cut that can be transformed into a trendy, perfect-for-fall style. This curl-friendly cut emphasizes the features of any face shape, and with a few quick tweaks and styling tips, you can make the look your own.
The curly A-line lob starts with a basic haircut that is best suited to round and oblong face shapes. The sides of the hair are cut to a gradual angle, with more length in the back. The front of the hair is left slightly longer, and can be styled to create a faux-bob look. The thinned ends create a soft, feminine look.
This haircut works best if you add some curl to the ends—just make sure you don’t overdo it. Go for a soft curl with a curling iron, or start off with a wand, depending on your hair type. Once you have the desired curl in the ends, you may add a bit of lift and body to the crown area. This will make the cut look even more interesting.
To keep the curls looking their best, use a hydrating conditioner and leave-in treatment. Depending on your hair type, you may need to flat iron certain sections to ensure a smooth finish. If so, do this after the curling process is complete.
Finish With a Pompadour
To complete the look, try adding a pompadour style to the front of the cut. Use a strong-hold gel or mousse to lift the root area and leave the ends slightly stiff. Tease the sides to create a slight tussled effect and you now have a stunning fall look that is sure to turn heads.
The A-line lob is a modern twist on a timeless classic and with a few simple tweaks you can make it your own. This look can be worn in both casual and dressy settings, and is sure to be a favorite this season.
