We know you’re still thinking about that short hairstyle you’ve had on your mind for months now. The perfect middle ground: a lob. It’s the perfect starter kit style if you’re not willing to shed loads of inches. Lobs are the one cut that somehow flatters virtually all hair types and face shapes (it's basically the jeans from Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants for hair). Proof: Each of the 80 (80!) celebrities in the following gallery have vastly different face shapes, hair lengths, and textures, and yet each of their long bobs—ahem, lobs—looks positively gorgeous.

Whether you want to incorporate layers or try a spring hair color, the versatility and effortless structure of a long bob is perfect for the coming months. Bonus: your hair won’t look cray grown-out. It’s all about embracing imperfect textures anyway to let your individuality shine through your style. Plus, there’s nothing a bit of texturizing spray can’t do to save a sad lob if it gets to that point. This means you really, truly can't go wrong taking a chance and chopping off some hair this season. That Instagram saved collection you’ve been adding to is collecting dust, so is your stylists’s chair. Need more persuasion? Let these photos speak for themselves.
