The Shag Haircut

The shag haircut is characterized by multi-dimensional texture and wispy layers.

“It’s weathered, soft, and has a lot of movement,” Sánchez explains. “It’s the type of cut you can achieve with different lengths. It fits with all face shapes and it’s perfect for the modern woman.”

Best of all, this look is easy to style. All you need is a texturizing spray like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Next Day Hair to play up your haircut. It'll give you an effortless, intentionally disheveled look that's perfect for the girl on the go looking to edge up her ‘do.

The Short Layered Choppy Hairstyle

If you want a shorter take on the choppy layered hairstyle, this cut is perfect for you. While most haircuts are shorter toward your face, this hairstyle employs the opposite technique.

Your hairdresser will cut layers into the back of your head so that the pieces at the nape are slightly shorter while leaving your face-framing pieces a little longer. The result? Lots of volume and body without the work.

The Long Choppy Haircut

For the bohemian babe who is unwilling to give up her flowing locks, the long choppy haircut is perfect. You can even incorporate fringe for extra texture!

This look screams rocker chic and really allows for a minimal styling routine, giving your hair a lived-in appearance. We recommend L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Beach Waves Texturizing Spray for long hair that’s been weighing you down.

The Pixie Haircut

Feeling bold? Want to try out a more androgynous ‘do? The pixie haircut is the perfect choppy hairstyle for the woman who doesn’t want to fuss with her hair. A good stylist will cut your hair strategically to create body at the crown of your head while ensuring the front pieces frame your face to flatter your features.

The Choppy Lob Hairstyle

Classic yet edgy, this look is perfect for the elegant woman who wants a subtle change. It’s essential your stylist considers which side you part your hair on to ensure the layers fall effortlessly and create seamless movement and bounce.

Unlike a traditional lob with a harder edge, this look is all about lightness.

“The lightness helps give the layers movement and make it easy for your hair to dry naturally the way you would style it,” Sánchez says.

If you're thinking about chopping your hair, there’s honestly no better time than now. Remember: Even if you’re not willing to part with your long hair, your stylist can totally adapt the cool-girl chop to your desired length!
