The Shoulder Haircuts

Shoulder-length haircuts are ideal for every hair texture imaginable. From curly to straight locks, shoulder-length haircuts will flatter every type. If your natural waves require something special to add texture and volume, try opting for face-framing layers, as long layers give off that beachy vibe. Layer complete and lightly texturized layers for curl patterns with tighter coils for added body. This look works well tucked behind the ears or with a deep side parting.

1. Shaggy Textured Bob

This stunning layered shaggy bob features choppy layers that create a gorgeously textured finish, making this style ideal for women with curly, wavy, or naturally textured locks. This style works best on women with shoulder-length hair.

To create this style, cut a guide section for your desired length and then cut individual strands at an angled cut for a layered and blended appearance. When finished, use texturizing spray or mousse to smooth and add volume to the ends of each strand.

This stunning layered shaggy bob is trendy, and its color is gorgeous!

Perfect for any special event!

2. Warm Blonde Highlights

Nothing exudes sleek and chic like a straight shoulder-length hairstyle. Perfect for shopping with the girls or attending business meetings, this look will have you looking flawless. Add dimension with warm blonde highlights that brighten your face while adding depth to the straight locks – and don’t worry about keeping up this low-maintenance shade, as roots may remain darker for an exciting contrast against lighter tips!

If platinum blonde isn’t quite your cup of tea, why not opt for honey blonde as an alternative hue? Like blonde highlights, honey blonde works on most skin tones while suiting textured hair and bangs well – like Rita Ora, who wears her layered blonde bob with face-framing highlights for an eye-catching finish.

3. Sleek and Chic

A sleek hairstyle is an excellent way to thicken strands for women with fine hair, as it will make each strand appear thicker. Add shine spray like Garner Fructis Sleek and Shine Anti-Frizz Serum ($22) for glossy strands like those seen on Joan Smalls, or add hair gems for an additional feminine touch.

Curl your way to an irresistibly curly shoulder-length haircut: Ask your stylist for face-framing layers with soft waves or curls, as Thandiwe Newton has, then finish by adding sea salt spray. Or use a medium-sized barrel curling iron for more pronounced waves!

Alternative styles like Taraji P. Henson’s mermaid-esque bob are also an option; rub some lightweight wax through your strands to define their shape before combing them back in place for a chic style that can take you from office meetings to evening events easily.

4. Soft Curls

A layered, choppy, shoulder-length haircut is a stunning style choice for those with naturally wavy or curly locks. Consult your stylist about face-framing textured layers to add shape and volume. Curly hair can often look overdone when worn long; this style softens its waves without diminishing their volume or bounce.

Staying on top of your curls can be challenging, but a shoulder-length cut may be just what’s needed to do so. Celebrate your natural coils by adding subtle highlights and pinning them back with a half-up ponytail; try beachy blonde highlights for an added dose of glamour.
