If there’s any hair justice, Aniston’s “lob”—or long bob—will end up being more imitated than the “Rachel.” “This is one of the new classics,” says hairstylist Tommy Buckett of the Marie Robinson Salon. “It’s chic and superflattering thanks to all the length in the front, and it can soften a strong jaw like Jen’s or thin out a round
face.” The term “lob” is hardly exact, so be clear about your desired length—or better yet, bring a photo to your salon appointment. Then reiterate a few points: “Ask for piecey layers that are longer in the front,” says hairstylist Matt Fugate of the Sally Hershberger Salon in New York City. “Make sure they start cutting around the face. That way, you can decide on an angle, and if you want to go shorter, you still have that option.” For a smooth look, run a hair styling lotion like Kiehl’s Stylist Series Creme With Silk Groom through damp hair, blow-dry with a round brush, and finish with a little pomade, such as Shu Uemura Cotton Uzu Defining Flexible Cream.
