Big news: What used to be that awkward in-between length reserved for growing out a bob while en route to long mermaid strands is now the It haircut of the season. This ultra-trendy mid-length haircut was all over the streets of NYFW and it’s flattering on virtually everyone. Wear it straight, wear it curled, accessorize or wear it plain. No matter how you slice it, this mid-length haircut makes a subtle cool-girl statement. Read on to get some inspiration for how to wear this length and consider heading to the salon to take the leap yourself.
The Super Flattering Mid-Length Haircut
1. Curled Ends
There is something undeniably flirty about a blown-out style with curled-up ends. Pair this look with a headband to get on the trend that seems to be here for the long haul. Add a touch of shine spray for a silky smooth finish. We keep reaching for Bed Head by TIGI Headrush Shine Spray.
2. Tousled Waves
This length looks particularly cool when it’s tousled and undone. Use a hair wand to create light bends in your style and go product-free for a super natural look.
3. Sharp Edges
Wear it sleek and sharp with a bold red lip for extra edge. Prep your hair with Suave Professionals Sleek Anti-Frizz Smooth & Shine Cream before you style for a truly sleek finish.
4. Soft Curls
Soft curls like these make this look romantic and effortlessly chic. Use a 1 1/2 inch curling iron to create curls on large sections of hair. Let them cool and then use a hairbrush to comb through them to soften the look.
5. Messy Curls
Balance a more formal look with a messier style. This length is ideal for that messy and undone finish. Use a curling iron to create curls throughout your hair and allow them to cool before breaking them up with your fingers. Finish with a heavy-handed mist of TRESemmé Dry Texture Finishing Spray to add texture and grit.
6. Air-Dried Curls
Type 2 waves to Type 3A curls can air-dry their ringlets to achieve a tousled, loosely textured look. We love this hairstyle paired with your fave off-day white tee and jeans for the ultimate in casual chic.
