There’s no one haircut that is low-maintenance for everyone. An easy, wash-and-go style depends on your particular hair type and texture. Medium density wavy hair cut into a long bob will look great with little more than a casual tousle, while the same cut on thick coarse hair will require serious styling to look polished. So what are the easiest, low-maintenance shapes for your hair? Click the notes to find out. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →

Bobs are great for their clean-lined simplicity, but on thick hair they can sometimes feel heavy or bulky, lacking the flow of longer, layered styles. These disconnected shapes offer a perfect solution, creating space by combing two disparate shapes on a single head without blending. The result is hair that naturally shifts and slides, at the place where the contrasting lines come together, creating swingy movement. You can enhance the separation between the shapes with color, creating visual contrast as pictured above, or go with a single color and opt for a softer look with all the same benefits.

How can you tell the difference between fine hair (small individual strands) and thin hair (small number of strands)? Is your hair naturally coarse or just damaged? Is it strong enough to take a big color change? Is it frizzy or just curly? We all have certain ideas about what our particular hair challenges are and what’s caused them. But often our perspective is usually distorted. False information can lead to all sorts of errors and frustrations, from buying the wrong products to asking for the wrong haircuts. So how do you know what your hair type really is? Click through to the notes for a series of conclusive, DIY tests. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →

Don’t get too excited though, it girl hacks aren’t actually roll out of bed lazy, they’re more minimal effort for max results.
