While Hollywood is rampant with tousled, choppy and blunt waves seductively grazing necklines and shoulders, this season’s hottest hairstyle is apparently a real challenge to wear well here. “Due to Singapore’s humid weather and Asian’s unique hair texture, many who tried to own a blunt and tousled Lob will realise that their Lob tends to look messy, frizzy and unfinished, especially when their hair is over-texturised,” explains Shawn Chia, associate salon director of high-end hair salon Chez Vous.

Here are the celebs who’s managed the impossible with their highly covetable Lobs.

Is there anything the super-cool DJ cannot pull off? From funky athleisure to a head that’s like a throwback to our secondary school days (but in a good way), the spunky DJ just manages to pull off the tied-back-with-a-barrette look.
