"I hate the word lob. It’s not a good hybrid so I like to call it long texturized bob," says Kristin Ess, who gave Lauren Conrad a post-wedding hair chop—and then yesterday took the star's strands even shorter. Conrad's shoulder-grazing strands (above) were cut with soft layers to add both blunt and wispy edges.

"There’s also a slight bit of an assymetrical-ness to it … that front section, that piece you tuck behind your ear is the cool girl piece. It’s just a tad longer than the rest of the hair and its very subtle,” Ess says.

Another key element to this look is Conrad’s disheveled bed-head waves. Looking to recreate the style but don't have Ess on speed dial? She suggests wrapping small sections around a 1-inch flat iron—she loves the GHD Classic Styler ($185; sephora.com)—with beveled edges to create a natural look wave. "Don't force it, people overthink it. It should look a little messy and edgy," says Ess. After your waves cool off, use a dab of Redken Rough Paste ($19; ulta.com) to add some texture and separation at the the ends.

We are loving Conrad's new look, and can't wait to see what cut we'll be lusting after next!
