So, you’re in that awkward growing out stage with your hair. Last year’s experimental bob has turned into a mid-length snooze fest and you don’t know what to do. Well, I’ve got some simple tips to make your mane less soccer mom boring and more va va va voom cute! Mid length is, after all, one of the most versatile styles around. When long-haired ladies want to go shorter, a mid length cut is a cute way to get the look of a fresh crop without the shock of losing all your hair at once. It can be worn up or down and still look done, can be worn straight or curly and is stylish as all get out when done right.
The most significant way to get the most style mileage out of your ‘do is to cut layers and/or a sweeping side bang. Not only will this modernize your cut, it screams sexy (it has even been worn by supermodel Heidi Klum herself). Getting highlights, low lights, ombre hair color or even just a single process color or glaze is a great way to funk up boring hair and add some vitality to it as well.
A chic, artfully disheveled low bun is also a great way to look on trend when you have a “lob” (a long bob). A high, ’60s inspired ponytail looks fashionable as well, just steer clear of cheesy hair accessories and opt for a solid-colored elastic!
