#3: Uniform Waves on Medium-Length Hair

Try uniform waves on medium-length hair for a unique way to add texture to your hair. Uniform waves can be achieved through horizontal placement with a curling iron, or through a finger wave set. Uniform waves can be soft and beachy, or structured for a more glamorous look.

#4: Neck-Length Blunt Bob with Bangs

A neck-length blunt bob with bangs is a great choice for fine hair. The clean blunt line thickens the perimeter and adds weight to the hair. Add some soft forehead skimming bangs, or a bright blonde bleach and tone to make this cut pop!

#5: Dimensional Pixie Bob

If your looking for a change, but want to keep some length try a dimensional pixie bob. This cut gives the look of short hair with the styling options of a bob. Add some bright dimensional highlights to contrast the movement in the haircut, especially around the face.

#6: Contrasting Pixie with an Undercut

Go for a contrasting pixie with an undercut if you’re looking for a fun and edgy cut. An undercut is a great way to reduce bulk and play up the top layers with a bold shade of blonde. Make sure to schedule regular trims to keep the under layer fresh and clean.

#7: Layered Inverted Shag with Bangs

A layered inverted shag with bangs is a super playful haircut with a lot of movement. The face-framing layers and wispy bangs show off the cheekbones and highlight the eyes. Add a hint of baby pink for a fun pop of color.

#8: Chin-Length Bob with Curtain Bangs

A chin-length bob with curtain bangs is the perfect mix of trendy and Hollywood glam. This chin-grazing bob looks great on women of all ages, especially those with an oval face shape. Ask your stylist for a fiery golden copper hue to compliment this cut.

#9: Inverted Lob with a Long Side Fringe

Go for an inverted lob with a side fringe for a sleek look. The back of the cut is cropped at the neckline with a seamless angled flow to the front. Inverted lobs look amazing on round face shapes because they elongate the face. Style with a round rush to achieve the perfect tuck around the perimeter.

Mid-length Curly Shag

#10: Mid-length Curly Shag

Try a mid-length curly shag if your looking to amp up the volume. Mid-length hair paired with cascading layers throughout the crown is the perfect cut to add definition to curls. Diffuse with Davines Love Curl Cream, for those oh so perfect frizz-free tendrils.

Blunt Cut with Blended Highlights

#11: Blunt Cut with Blended Highlights

Try a blunt cut with blended highlights for a clean low maintenance style. Blunt cuts work well on fine, straight hair, because they give the illusion of thicker tresses. Add blended highlights for a soft rooty look with bright ends.

A color blocked shaggy mullet is a funky cut offering the best of both worlds, through two toned color and length variations. The short choppy fringe blends throughout the crown, complimenting the dark piecey tresses. Color blocked mullets look best on women in their 20s or 30s.
