Long hair, don’t care? Try short hair, don’t care. In a trend dubbed the “lob index” (kind of like the “lipstick index”) by U.K. economists, studies claim that the trend for shorter hair gains traction as the economy improves.
And they may have a point. Lobs have been trending like crazy, even stateside. Kylie Jenner, Margot Robbie (who is Australian) and Kim Kardashian have adopted the look — and it seems our economy is slowly getting better as well. The lob is not an easy style to maintain and more frequent trips to the hair salon indicate that folks have more money to spend on such niceties.
So lob away, ladies! We know you can afford it now.
