There's no denying that the long bob — otherwise known as the lob — is having its moment. Because, let's face it, it's basically the perfect mashup of two of the most classic hairstyles of all time. The asymmetrical lob, though, takes it to a whole other level.

Shorter in the back than in the front, the asymmetrical lob adds an edgy vibe to an already ultra-cool look. Another bonus? Like its lob sister, the asymmetrical lob works on anyone, no matter your face shape.

Want to see which version will work best for you? Check out these asymmetrical lobs for any face shape and take your top choice to your next salon appointment.
