The Lived-In Lob: The Perfect Low-Maintenance Cut

The tousled lob, also known as the "lived-in" or "beachy" lob, is a popular haircut that is easy to style and looks effortless and relaxed. "The tousled lob is a versatile and low-maintenance haircut that looks great on just about everyone," says celebrity stylist John D. "It's a great option for women who want a stylish, modern haircut that is easy to style and looks great on the go." To cut a tousled lob, follow these steps:

  1. Start by washing and drying your hair. Use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner to add body and texture to your hair. If your hair is naturally fine or flat, you can also use a root-lifting product to add volume at the roots.

  2. Next, section your hair into four sections using clips. You can create the sections by parting your hair down the center of your head and then creating two vertical sections from the center part to the nape of your neck.

  3. Take the top section of your hair and use a comb to create a horizontal part that is parallel to your eyebrows. This will be the section of hair that will be cut into the lob.

  4. Using a pair of hair shears, begin cutting the top section of hair into the desired shape of the lob. For a classic lob, you will want to cut the hair to a length that falls just above the shoulders. For a more modern, tousled look, you can cut the hair a little shorter, with the longest layers falling at the collarbone.

  5. As you cut, use a comb to lift and separate the hair into small sections. This will help you create a more natural, tousled look. Be sure to cut the hair in a slightly angled or diagonal direction to add movement and texture.

  6. Once you have cut the top section of hair into the lob shape, release the next section of hair and repeat the cutting process. Be sure to blend the new section of hair with the previously cut hair to create a seamless transition.

  7. Continue cutting and blending the remaining sections of hair until the entire head is cut into the tousled lob shape. Use a fine-tooth comb to check for any unevenness or stray hairs, and trim as needed.

  8. Finish the cut by using a texturizing or finishing spray to add volume and texture to the hair. You can also use a curling iron or hot rollers to add waves or curls, if desired.

The tousled lob, is generally considered to be an easy and low-maintenance hairstyle. It is a versatile cut that can be worn straight, wavy, or curly, and it is easy to style and maintain. The tousled lob is a great choice for women who want a stylish, modern haircut that is easy to manage and looks great on the go. While the tousled lob may require some minimal maintenance, such as regular trims to keep the ends looking fresh and healthy, it is generally considered to be a relatively low-maintenance hairstyle.

"Having a great hairstyle is an essential part of a woman's overall look," says beauty expert Jane F. "A great haircut can make a woman feel confident, beautiful, and put-together, no matter what she is wearing or where she is going."
