This edgy cut – which works best with medium to thick, straight hair – feels both youthful and dynamic. Feel free to try different lengths to find the perfect option for your face shape. And if you change your mind, don’t worry, the shape of this haircut grows out nicely!

Pixie cut

One of the chicest and most youthful-looking haircuts, the classic pixie is may not necessarily be new, but it will always feel fresh, whatever your age! While the super short cut can seem a bit dramatic, it’s a very refreshing and magnetic option that will enhance the beauty of your face and eyes.

A thick, full fringe can really transform your look and is a gorgeous style update, no matter your hair length. From long, luscious locks, to a short, sharp bob, adding a fringe is a great way to add a youthful vibe to your look. If you’d rather have a style that you can play around with, then go for a side-swept option instead.

Flowing layers

Add movement and volume to your hair with a beautiful layered cut. Layers are a great way to soften thick, heavy hair, and many hairstyles can incorporate this look. Those with shorter tresses can work choppier layers into the mix to add some shape and texture, while those with longer hair can keep the layers more subtle for a less dramatic effect.

Blunt cut

If you feel that your hair is not as thick as it used to be, or are suffering from pesky split ends, you don’t have to chop it all off in order to restore it to its former glory. Instead, try a blunt cut. It’ll instantly make your ends look fresher and more defined, and your hair will appear thicker and fuller-looking, too.

Shag haircut

For ladies with fine or thin hair, a shag cut is a great way to restore volume and fullness. Although it can be worn straight or curly, this retro-inspired hairstyle looks better with a little texture thrown into the mix. For that, work in a bit of texturising mousse when styling to enhance the shape of your layers and really maximise the look.
