Stuck for your next look? When it comes to timeless hairstyles, they don’t come much more classic than a sophisticated, graduated A-line haircut.
Popular with A-listers like Victoria Beckham and Gwyneth Paltrow, this versatile style has been shown to flatter women of all ages, regardless of whether you have thin or thick hair types. Oh, and what it lacks in length, it more than makes up for in texture!
So, if you’ve stumbled across this page ahead of your next hair appointment or even if you’ve never considered an A-line haircut before, why not have a look through some of favourite styles from Instagram now and see if we can’t persuade you!
A-line hair cuts we’re loving from Instagram
1. Textured A-line bob
Fine hair? No problem! In fact, an A-line haircut can help to give shape and body to limp locks. Plus, by adding textured layers like this will take the look one step further, giving you both a root (and confidence!) boost. Credit: @luxeparlour
Editor’s tip: Make the most of those freshly-trimmed layers with a texturising product, such as the VO5 Dry Texturising Spray. A quick spritz of this will instantly plump up your layers and give you an effortlessly tousled look.
2. Feathered A-line lob
If you’re concerned about having an A-line haircut that’s too angular, why not try softening up the edges using the feathered layering technique?
Feathering will help to give the ends of your hair a wispier, less structured feel, while still maintaining that distinctive diagonal line that makes the look unique. Credit: @hairdesignbyellie
3. A-line bob with bangs
Neat and smart, this is a great one if you’re looking for a professional cut for work which doesn’t require too much upkeep or styling time in the morning. Now go get those extra few minutes of beauty sleep! Credit: @ez.naive
4. A-line pixie cut
We have Cara Delevingne and Katy Perry to thank for bringing the pixie cut back onto fashion scene, but if you’re not sure you can pull off such a bold, short style, you could always try a more feminine alternative, instead.
5. Medium length A-line hair
6. Stacked A-line bob
Think you’re too old to rock an A-line haircut? Well, think again, because this stacked look is all the proof you need.
Whether it’s hair loss or deflating volume that’s your bugbear, this choppy layered look will instantly revive your look, giving it a youthful, full-bodied feel and making you the envy of all your friends! You can thank us later. Credit: @purehairstudio563
7. Undercut A-line bob
While A-line haircuts are a classic, don’t assume this means you can’t add a quirky twist to the look if you want to!
If you’re looking for something a bit edgier, take your style inspo from this blondie and work an undercut detail into the nape of your neck. Sleek on top, wild underneath – don’t say we don’t cater to everybody! Credit: @hairbysophielou
Editor’s tip: To create more of a contrast between your top layers and your punky shaved undercut, use a serum or oil, such as the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil, to add shine and fend off frizz for a salon-sleek finish.
If none of these A-line looks have caught your eye, don’t fret! Our Short Hairstyles page has plenty more where this came from, so you’re bound to find something there that’s more up your street. A bowl cut perhaps?
