Embrace the Lob!
by Laetitia Wong
Length has always been associated to beauty. Personally, I’ve never dared chance the chop since I’ve even knew what braids were. My mother used to categorise long hair as ‘Princess hair’, whilst Disney gave me unrealistic expectations about what beauty was all about. Truth be told, if it weren’t for Mulan, I’d be royally pissed at Disney and it’s artistic directors.
Nonetheless, having made the chop from creepy Adam’s Family strands to short and chic mid-length lob back in 2012, I’ve been loving my do (albeit not very new anymore) ever since, and have been urging many of my timid gal pals to take that leap of faith. I’m no closer to convincing them as compared to where I was two years back, but hey, I’m trying.
What with Lauren Conrad, Jessica Alba, Posh Spice, Jennifer Aniston, Karlie Kloss, Alexa Chung, Brooklyn Decker and Cameron Diaz all opting for shorter and healthier haircuts, it’s inspired a trend wave that many are still riding on.
