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.

In the early 2000s when I first became a stylist short haircuts were all about tendrils and points. Barbered edges, clean ends, and blunt texture were considered boyish or matronly, but over the years I’ve come to believe the exact opposite: putting boyish lines on feminine features actually emphasizes softness and flatters strength, creating looks that are feminine yet powerful. My favorite short cuts now are structured and powerful, but they still have details that feminize. What separates these looks from the boy’s?

Most hair products are named for what they do—volume foam, curl control, hydro mist—which should make picking the right ones easy. But sometimes the best product for a particular task is the one that’s named for the opposite texture. From my favorite collection of ARROJO Products, for example, curl control’s moisture and hold are a dream for straightening; volume foam has great grip for smoothing. Confused?

Alexa Chung has a gorgeous natural wave. That’s a great way to be as it creates styling options: you can go straight, or encourage an easy-going natural texture. With her boho-chic vibe, Alexa usually chooses the latter option, as seen in this image of her sporting a loose, shoulder-grazing, layered long bob. The style has softness and movement, with graphic emphasis placed on texture. Perfectly imperfect, this is a great example of her signature look. For the color, soft chocolatey tones keep it bright and sultry, and brings out her great complexion. Get tips for styling similar shapes in the notes.
