The pixie will never go out of style. Style your above-the-chin hair length with this fun haircut: slick it back if you have sharp angular features or stick it out if your face shape is more rounded at the sides.

TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse

Editor’s Tip: TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse will help you keep the body of your pixie haircut and hold its style atop your head! Whether its to keep it neat and sleek or more voluminous, this is the styling product you need to pat on your tresses before heading out the door.

Undercut

Don’t be frightened by the rocker chick reputation of the undercut hairstyle. You can always take a softer approach with it by keeping your hair long at the top so you can sweep it to the side for a more feminine vibe.

Blunt Bob with Bangs

Give the classic bob an edge with this blunt cut and bangs hairstyle. Tame those locks with a few pats of the TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops, which can control frizz while keeping the gloss on your hair.

Medium-length haircuts for straight hair

A-Line Cut

Play around with this subtle but sophisticated look. The A-line haircut is perfect for medium-length straight hair since you can keep the front part long and taper off to the back with the usual bob length.

Side-swept Bangs

Side-swept bangs aren’t going anywhere, and for good reason. They’re flattering, they fit any face shape, and they’re easy to maintain!

Editor’s Tip: Give your hair that freshly-cut bounce to them by using Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo, which can  give it up to 95% more volume with everyday use,

Shaggy Lob

Wear the “woke up like this” look fabulously with the shag haircut! Try out the short, chunky layers at the top and long, wispy layers towards the tips for waves and movement in your usually sleek, straight hair.

Editor’s Tip: If, on the other hand, your straight hair can get unruly, get yourself to use Dove Straight & Silky Conditioner, which can help make your straight hair more manageable with every use. Complement it with Cream Silk Standout Straight Vitamin Treatment to repair the frizz caused by damage.

Have fun with all that long, straight hair and chop it up into multi-layers for texture, texture, texture. Play around by adding some hair color to the different lengths, why don’t you?

While asymmetrical haircuts are on the riskier side of the hairstyle spectrum, there’s definitely a way to pull it off in a posh and elegant way. Think of a hybrid between the A-line cut and an undercut, except it isn’t shaved on the sides — just shorter.

Full bangs

Don’t let all that long hair go to waste. Transform a handful of your hair into a full head of bangs, and do what you want with the rest! Let thick, straight, and full bangs make your statement — and spritz on some TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray to keep it all together!
