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.

You know I love a messy side braid just as much as I love tousled waves, so I thought, why not combine the two? But you also know that it takes the right combination of technique and messiness to actually create a perfectly imperfect do. Sure it may look like the cool girl at brunch just effortlessly crafted her hair into that style, but you know better. Even mussy styles take work! You need the right product, technique, practice, and even some luck to create effortless imperfection. But I know you can achieve it!

Great waves and beachy tendrils are my most wanted summer style, even if I’m no where near the surf. And for those of you who didn’t know, beach waves and short hair are not mutually exclusive. Whether your hair ends just at your collarbone or hangs by your ears, all you need to achieve #beachvibes is a great styler that encourages waves and texture and a whole lot of inspiration. To get you started I pulled together a collection of my favorite gals rocking collarbone-grazing waves in the notes. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

I’m a self proclaimed lazy gal when it comes to hair maintenance. Basically, the less I have to do the better. This laziness makes me love the whole model-off-duty windswept, tousled, I woke up like this look. It also makes me search out the best of lazy girl hacks, especially those recommended by it girls and models. 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.

The year is almost over making it a great time to reflect back on and look forward. 2015 was an exciting year for hair and fashion. Where will we go from here? Bustle predicts more of the same: bobs, tousled waves, and statement parts. Refinery 29 has a bolder take and names geometric cuts, high-top fades, and statement bangs as up-and-coming looks.
