Short hair is all the rage, and who says you can’t have fun without long hair? These inspiring models all have chin-length hairstyles that totally rock. Texture and color are key elements that help keep your shorter hairstyle fresh and modern.
How would you describe this look?
This cut is a slightly angled bob haircut. It’s cut at an angle so that the nape area is roughly an inch shorter than the front length. I’ve given her textured layers for movement and to lighten up her bulky heavy hair.
My favorite thing about this cut is that it’s flattering for all ages and can be adjusted for any face shape. It generally keeps its shape for up to three months, making it a go-to for busy women on the go.
Any advice for someone considering it?
A consultation is always needed to know which adjustments should be made. Perhaps for an edgier look, the angle could be steeper. You could stack or graduate the nape area for added shape. Shorter layers or bangs can be cut for more volume, larger foreheads, or this basic shape can be left without layers for thin and fine hair.
It’s versatile to style and easily made sleek and straight. It can be waved with a curling wand or curled with a one-inch barrel iron. The length in the front is usually left long enough to pull back so it’s out of your face if you want to work out.
My favorite styling products for fine hair are BIG SEXY Root Boost and Spray Clay Texturizer. For wavy hair, use a light gloss to smooth the hair shaft and eliminate frizz, then a spray of AG Sea Salt Spray for beachy texture. For thicker bulky hair, my two faves are BioSilk Coconut Therapy and BIG SEXY Love Oil cocktailed with AG Recoil and Totaled Lightly (left to air dry).
Small bobby pins and barrettes are a great accessory for this cut and a sunkissed balayage is a perfect color compliment.
