If there's a defining celebrity haircut of 2019, it might just be the lob — a long bob that typically lands between the shoulder and the collarbone. Dozens of celebrities debuted the style, sometimes adding artful touches like beachy waves, side parts or bangs. For some, the lob was just another new style to try out for a short period of time; others ditched their signature long locks to keep the sleek look.
