For some, seeing in the new year means catching up on hair cuts. Ticking ‘trim’ off the life admin list, or indulging in a little salon time (because we’ve stuck out this ‘January’ thing for quite long enough), could mean trying something new. And shoulder-length hair, my looking-for-inspiration friends, is the cut you should try.
It inspires flashbacks of the ‘growing out’ phase we all endured after mum’s insistence of having a bob throughout our childhood (ahead of her time on the trends it would seem). It’s not so short that ‘transformation’ springs to mind, but it’s a definite shift from longer locks, and combines that cool blunt-ends vibe we talked about at length in 2018.
Whether your natual hair texture is curled or straight, the just-touching-shoulders length of this cut will carry it, and it’s just long enough to slick back into a low bun for practicality. And because it looks really, really good.
If you’ve just invested in an oversized hair clip (haven’t we all), slide it to the side, or layer a few – evidence how great that looks right here. This is my Monday morning hairstyle.
So, if you’re ready to embrace shoulder-length then a) I credit myself for convincing you, and b) here’s some inspiration to take-with to the salon.
