When it comes to the famed and fashionable lob, layers tend to be few and far between. The popular version of the cut is typically a blunt, shoulder-length chop with minimal detailing. And while the simplicity of the lob is one of its key features, that layer-less look doesn’t necessarily work for everybody (thicker haired ladies, I’m talking to you). But don’t think because you’re rocking a full head of hair that you can’t chop it all off. If you’re looking for a stunning, more delicate version of the trend, take some inspiration from J.Lo‘s recent snip.
The performer’s layery new look was first spotted by paparazzi at LAX yesterday afternoon. We’re all pretty stoked on the style, but it seems as though there was one dude who was so excited about the chop he actually confetti bombed her upon arrival. But leave it to J.Lo to take the colorful surprise in stride and instantly make confetti look like the cool new hair accessory. Shortly after the impromptu airport photo shoot, J.Lo shared her new cut on Instagram.
In the paparazzi shots J.Lo’s style is center parted with feathered bangs (basically a ’70s haircut FTW), however, in her Instagram snap, it looks as though she may have moved the part more to one side, quickly creating a soft set of side bangs. A haircut you can change up with the swipe of a hand? Now that’s a look we can definitely get behind.
