If you want the versatility of long hair with the chicness of a short cut this shape is for you. Longer than a lob, textured but not layered, this trending cut sits just a few inches below the shoulders. Worn tousled and swept to the side, the cut combines the ease and movement of a short cut with the femininity and softness of a longer look. If you’ve been looking for a trendy cut that’s a little bit longer, look no further. Learn more about achieving this look in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

Step: Begin with a one-length line, achieved with a razor or dry-cutting technique which will leave ends diffused and soft. Remove additional bulk as needed to release natural texture and create a lean silhouette.

Step: Encourage waves by using gentle shampoo and conditioner to add weightless moisture and shine to tresses.

Step: After shower, towel dry work a handful of styling whip into roots and mist ends lightly with healing oil.

Step: Rough dry roots, using lifting hair up and focus on the first few inches of hair. Divide hair on the side, twist into 4-6 large sections and allow to air dry.
