When it comes to classic hairstyles, they don't come more timeless than the lob. With less drama (and less upkeep) than an Anna Wintour–inspired bob but a little more edge than long locks, the lob is the perfect in-between hairstyle that never goes out of style. Bonus: It suits every face shape, too, so there's no risk of remorse after your visit to the hairdresser's.

But what exactly is a lob? Well, it's exactly what it sounds like: a long bob. It's a one-length cut that generally sits at a mid-length, shoulder height—although you can get away with your strands falling just a smidge above or below that, too. Experiment with centre and side partings to switch up how your lob looks daily, but a lob hairstyle also pairs well with a fringe—whether that's a full, one-length fringe or wispier French-girl bangs.
And if you're considering embracing the lob for autumn/winter, you're in luck. There are so many examples of celebrities stepping out with the chicest mid-length hairstyles that I thought it would be rude not to put all of that great lob inspiration in one place.
Sleek, straight and in one of autumn's must-have hair colours, Hailey Bieber has gone for the classic lob hairstyle here, and it looks so damn good.
