Shoulder-length hairstyles are usually styled sleek and smooth, or allowed to air dry for the natural texture of a wash and wear style. But adding bouncy volume is another great option. Extra oomph is always sexy, especially when paired with tousled waves. The image above is a great example. The off -center center part creates soft asymmetry for fulsome waves to hang deliciously off of the shoulder. This style works best on minimally layered cuts that sit on – or just above or below – the shoulder. Click through the style notes for tips on getting lots of body in mid-length hairstyles.

So I recently read an article on a favorite beauty publication of mine that claimed that tousled waves, the summer’s go-to look for both the cat walk and my personal lazy weekends is dead. Per the stylists in the article, sleek and minimalist hair is what will be trending. But I’m going to have to disagree, on a professional and a personal level. Because, hello, the whole I-woke-up-like-this beauty look (which includes tousled strands) isn’t going anywhere, and even Kim Kardashian has given up on contouring. And what could be more minimalist then wearing your natural texture or easy waves? So don’t go tossing your texture spray out yet ladies.
