Classic Hairstyles For Women

Classic hairstyles for women include an array of timeless and feminine looks. For example, a sleek bob is an ode to Old Hollywood glamour that works well for naturally straight or wavy strands like Brigitte Bardot’s.

Pixie Cut

One of the classic short pixie cuts is the layered version. This versatile look works on all hair textures and styles – from curly to straight. Give each layer some added texture using a curling wand before sweeping them back over to one side and finishing off with some hairspray to achieve an everyday style that can also be worn for special events. Jada Pinkett Smith’s slicked-back pixie proves that this hairstyle works for women of all ages. Her spiky locks add some edge, while the blonde hue and winged eyeliner balance her strong jawline. This haircut can also be made more formal by adding styled curls in front.

Middle-parted Curls

Middle-parted curls have long been a timeless trend and suit women of any hair length, texture, or face shape. The look works across generations of women, from long waves to short pixies. Style options that work with this style include braids, twists, and half-up, half-down eyes for endless versatility. Additionally, texture spray or mousse can add depth for a more uniform finish. Middle-parted curls work well with most face shapes, enhancing and complementing your features. This look requires very minimal upkeep yet adds an extra oomph to everyday styles with only minor effort needed to achieve. To get this style, blow dry your hair using a rat tail comb and volumizing mousse or texture spray for an authentic lived-in finish.

Middle-parted Waves

The Middle Part Hairstyle is an effortless style that fits a range of lengths and hair textures, from short layers to longer locks. Additionally, this look pairs well with protective styles like Tribal Braids and classic finishes such as Bobs. This style works for all skin colors and facial structures. It can be dressed up with an adorable flower crown or worn casually to the office as Cameron Diaz did when attending the Santa Monica Beach Film Independent Spirit Awards with her blonde locks tied back into a low ponytail featuring a middle part. Add modern flare to this timeless style by framing your face with curtain bangs or texturizing long strands with sea salt spray for a contemporary take. Additionally, this center part works beautifully with hair extensions to add volume.

Long Bangs

Long, straight bangs that fall across the forehead are an iconic hairstyle ideal for women with heart-shaped faces. A feathered fringe that visually makes your face appear thinner while also drawing attention to eyes and eyebrows, according to stylist Barbara Thompson of Petaluma’s Pine Salon. This timeless look has stood the test of time, as celebrities from Cher to Naomi Campbell have long championed its appeal. To keep it contemporary and trendy, add texture or even try choppy, uneven cuts for an added edge – the result will be an effortlessly cool yet chic style!


Face-framing layers with an easy care regimen make this look great for women of all ages and are easy to maintain. Be sure to use a gel that holds its shape when styling this look for optimal results. One slick and classic way to keep hair off your face is to tie it into a high, sleek ponytail. This style works exceptionally well for medium-length hair or those growing out their locks who wish to remain polished during this process. This look is ideal for teenagers and girls of all ages, making a sophisticated yet elegant statement at any gathering or special event. When worn with dark attires, this style makes an impressive and lovely statement about who you are.
