#1 blunt ends
This cut is all about simplicity, keeping the ends blunt and layers minimal. You can opt for a few face-framing layers, but keep the length the same to promote easy styling and your thickest ends. This haircut works great for thin hair!
#2 Full bangs
Keep a shoulder cut simple yet stylish with full bangs. This hairstyle has only long layers, which allows the bangs to shine. If you’re looking to switch up your hairstyle for spring, bangs could be your answer.
#3 Natural volume
If you have more compact curls like these, layers are essential to make a shortcut more voluminous and shaped. The layers should start in the middle of your hair shaft, which will help you avoid the awkward “triangle” shape that curly girls sometimes struggle with.
This classic cut is back in a big way and we love the layers, bangs and overall shag of the look. It should always graze the shoulders and have layers that start just below eye level.
#5 stacked layers
Unlike a blunt, angled shoulder cut, this style gets ultra volume in the back from layering. It lets the back layers pump up the body, while the angled layer around the face adds definition.
#6 Side-Swept Bangs
This old-school, shoulder-length cut is giving us major early 2000s vibes, but side-swept bangs always deserve another shot in our opinion. This funky, blunt cut features bangs that graze below the eyebrow down to the chin.
#7 Airy layers
You’ll catch the wind in no time with this layer-heavy, shoulder-length cut. Going all in with the layers helps bring movement to your everyday look, while bringing life to naturally flat hair.
#8 Face framing
When you get a shortcut, face framing is key to getting definition without adding super short layers that will be smart to style. Getting face-framing highlights to accompany these layers is about the easiest path to ultra-stylish hair.
#9 Growing Bob
Lauren Conrad perfects the short cut, and this style is longer than a traditional bob but shorter than her beloved lob. The overly swept side part looks light and laid back, while the transition length is free of too many layers.
#10 Deep Side Party
For the ladies out there with super thick hair, you might think that a deep side part isn’t what you need; but we love the amount of body and volume you get from going heavy with the side part, especially when paired with a blunt shoulder-length hairstyle. A deep side part works well with most hair textures.
#11 Middle parted bangs
For the fashion-conscious woman, a center part always adds a little chicness. This cut uses bangs and layers to add extra sass and texture to this style that hits just a tad below the shoulders. Depending on your comfort zone, you can take the bangs up as high as the cheekbone level or leave it longer so that it hits near your chin.
