hairModern Shoulder Length Haircuts

No matter your hair length or why it needs growing out, we have plenty of fresh ideas for modern shoulder-length haircuts to get you looking your best!

Try Jennifer Hudson’s sharp asymmetrical bob for an effortlessly stylish style that frames the face, or opt for choppy ends to lighten thick strands and give thick locks a more straightforward appearance.

Straight Haircut

Straight hair is an absolute joy to witness, with its natural shine and sleek texture, making a medium-length straight cut suitable for all hair textures and face shapes.

Kiernan Shipka wears her chin-grazing blunt bob pin-straight cut, which works exceptionally well on those with finer or medium straight strands (although more volume could be created if coarser locks were present).

Substitute this look for one with a longer back length that gradually gets shorter at the front, like Ashley Tisdale’s collarbone-grazing lob. As Alexa Chung shows, it can be styled in countless ways – even with face-framing side bangs.

If you want to enhance the sleekness of your strands, a cute shoulder-length haircut is an effective solution. From side parts and blowouts to French chops and taper fades, and Ivy League or curtains looks, these adorable styles will leave your mane feeling polished and put-together.

Medium Haircut with Blunt Edges

Midlength styles have become an ideal way of life in today’s fast-paced society. Whether growing out bangs or switching it up with something sleek and short, there are various textured straight midlength cuts that complement every face shape beautifully and offer maximum versatility when styling them.

A voluminous curly messy shag is one of our go-to medium haircuts for women because it allows you to experiment with texture while remaining easy to manage and maintain. Plus, adding subtle baby lights or balayage streaks adds dimension.

If you have brown hair, a medium haircut with caramel balayage adds dimension without overwhelming its natural hue. Paired with long curtain bangs and an ombre lob, you’ll achieve a timeless and timeless style that works for any occasion – and it suits women of all ages beautifully!

Straight and Sharp-Edged Shag

Straight and sharp-edged shag styles are among the newest medium-length shag looks, ideal for women with naturally thick hair. This modern medium-length look features layers that run along each strand, cut in with razored edges to add definition and structure to the overall style.

Add dimension with long feathery peek-a-boo bangs like Alison Brie’s or add curls by teasing with a large barrel curling iron as seen on Rashida Jones; for an added pop of color, use balayage or ombre techniques on these styles to highlight each strand individually!

Padma Lakshmi’s shoulder-length cut offers an elegant and feminine option for women looking for a chic and feminine shoulder-length style, featuring blonde or honey tones with subtle copper highlights that lighten its look while shaggy, textured ends lend it a tomboyish charm that suits young professionals and those leading an active lifestyle ideally. Complete the look with bold lips for an eye-catching beauty look sure to draw admiration.

Blunt Bangs

Bangs can make a significant statement about who you are. While this style works best on naturally straight locks, it can also work on wavy or curly tresses.

The blunt bangs trend is ideal for adding face-framing layers and softening large foreheads, helping your head appear smaller and slimmer. Kendall Jenner sports this look as Audrey Hepburn would, pairing her blunt bangs with dark red lips and angular eyebrows for an elegant, feminine beauty look.

This style may only be ideal for some as it can require high maintenance; however, it makes an eye-catching statement and should be considered by anyone looking for something different and unexpected. Pair with a high top knot or sleek ponytail for an edgy and dramatic effect; especially beneficial to women looking to avoid frizz and flyaways associated with curly or wavy hair as this helps ensure smooth strands.
