Getting a haircut during COVID-19 times is not the same relaxing experience it used to be.

There's masks, lots of sanitizing, no magazines to flip through while you wait, and in some instances, no blowouts. But while the "new normal" has changed hair salons for the foreseeable future, some haircut trends haven't changed.

The lob, one of the most popular haircuts of the past couple years, is still going strong for summer 2020. Chrissy Teigen just debuted her first new hairstyle since the pandemic forced us to shelter at home for four months.

The star went with a blunt clavicle-length lob for her summer cut, which she debuted on her Instagram Story.

The star's new look is the work of celebrity hairstylist Irinel de León, who also shared Teigen's lob on Instagram.

"We went short," de León wrote, accompanied by hair-cutting emoji.

De León styled Teigen's new lob in loose beachy waves and flipped the front pieces of her hair over to the other side for added volume.
