While long hair is still adored by hoards of celebrities and clients alike, the trend for going shorter and shorter is picking up pace. With the Millennial mid length style popular with 20 somethings, if the celebrity zeitgeist is anything to go by clients will be opting for even more off this summer…

A versatile, easy to style cut that suits all hair types, ages and face shapes, Philipp Haug is a huge fan of the look. The international artistic director for Toni & Guy and manager of the flagship academy in central London, picks his favourite celebrity lobs of the moment.

“The lob is perfect for Kendall’s heart-shaped face and because it sits gently on her shoulders, the soft blow-dry accentuates her neck and collarbone,” comments Philipp.

The soft layering makes this tousled look modern and sultry. While the off-centre parting gives it softness. Philip recommends a salt spray for achieving this look.

The lob is also suitable for older clients who want to keep some length. Cate Blanchett’s blunt-cut adds depth and softness with gentle waves. The centre partying makes it especially easy to wear.

Diane Kruger

“Diane illustrates the versatility of the lob – with a side parting and tucked behind the ear, it goes from every-day to red-carpet glamour,” says Philipp.
