This sharp style shows off all your best angles.

A line haircuts, like A line skirts, can be worn by everyone. And like A line skirts, the A line haircut gets updated for each season, so you’re not wearing your grandmom’s haircut.

Wait, what are you talking about? A line haircuts are layered cuts that frame the face. They can be short like a bob, or longer like a shag. They’re generally more layered in the back and cut straight across the front. If you have thin hair, this cut will make your hair appear fuller and thicker. If you have thick hair, this cut makes styling your hair easy-peasy. Curly girls, well, the cut releases the curl and gets rid of bulk, allowing you to show off your curls.
