9 Inspiring Haircuts for Every Length
The Blunt Bob
Russian fashion editor/stylist Miroslava Duma was one of the first in the fashion set to chop her locks into a sharp bob. Tip: ask for invisible layers if your hair is thick.
The Choppy Bob
To get a chin-length cut like this, ask for light, choppy layers, which will allow you to wear you the cut sleek or messy.
The Modern Bob with Fringe
Bangs completely change the feeling of a layered bob. Score Kirsten Dunst’s girly style with eye-grazing, wispy fringe.
A Collarbone Cut with Invisible Layers
Elizabeth Olsen’s mid-length cut feels fresh, thanks to long layers.
The Asymmetric Cut
Want to try something edgy, but not ready to lose your length? Follow Leigh Lezark’s lead and go for an asymmetric cut. A one or two inch difference on one side will make a basic cut incredibly hip.
The Messy Mid-Length
For a mid-length cut like this, ask for choppy, face-framing layers.
One Length with Gentle Layers
If you have thick locks, and want a low-maintenance cut, try long layers like Doutzen Kroes.
Long and Blunt
Long hair get instant polish with a sharp, blunt cut.
