Inspiration for Your Hair Type and Texture
The 20 Best Low Maintenance Haircuts For Every Hair Type
27 February 2018
We all love the look and feel of our strands after a visit to the salon. After spending hours in the chair, it’s easy to feel confident that you can recreate that same gorgeous blowout on your dark brown hair. Even though we all love the end result, all that sectioning and brushing can add serious time to your pre-work beauty routine.
For those of us who love hitting snooze on our alarms each morning, there are some styles that require little to no effort at all.
The key to low maintenance styling for any hair type is the perfect cut. We’ve rounded up some of the best low maintenance haircuts for every hair type to simplify your routine and enhance your natural texture.
If you’re a naturalista, you might be wondering what length is best for wearing your natural texture every day. A mid-length cut is a safe choice for every curl type.
Not sure which curl type you have? Check out our guide on natural hair types.
If you’re searching for a breezy cut that will eliminate some weight from your curls, you’ll absolutely love a bob with lots of layers.
The best low maintenance cuts allow you to apply your favorite styling products, quickly air dry your mane, and head out the door to start the day. If you’re on the lookout for a curly chop ideal for air drying, we love the look of a curly pixie.
If you're looking for volume in all the right places , ask your stylist for a triangle cut.
Lots Of Layers
Because blunt cuts can sometimes weigh down your waves, women with this hair type should ask for layers of various lengths. Layers can instantly give your hair the movement and texture it needs. If you’re looking for a quick way to add more texture, we love the Redken Beach Envy Volume Wave Aid.
A touch of hair mousse like the Redken Full Frame 07 Volume All-Over Volumizing Mousse is all you’ll need to style this killer cut quickly!
With the revival of mullet hair this year, we’ve been inspired by choppy haircuts—especially on wavy hair. For a low-maintenance cut on wavy strands, opt for short hair with choppy layers.
Thinking of adding a fringe to your new cut? Softer, piece-y bangs pair perfectly with delicate waves.
Deep Side Part
Fine hair has a reputation for lacking volume. A deep side part is a great way to create lift at the root quickly. Since all of your hair is pulled to one side, this hairstyle is a major win for women with fine hair who long for a voluminous look.
If you have fine strands, you might want to avoid lengthy cuts that weigh your hair down. Instead, opt for a cut that falls just above your shoulders.
For those with fine hair—the shorter the ‘do, the better. While we love the look of any bob, an angular bob is perfect for creating the illusion of having more hair in the front, while the back is just a bit shorter—keeping it low maintenance.
Bangs can instantly make any hairstyle appear fuller. For fine hair, opt for full-on fringe that instantly draws attention to your face.
Who doesn’t love a long layered cut? While layers that go too short can make thick strands appear bulky, long layers can provide just enough movement while leaving your hair easy to manage.
Whichever length or style you choose, face-framing layers can softly frame your face and take away any unnecessary fullness, giving the rest of your mane time to shine!
Buzzing away the bottom half of your hair may not be for everyone. If you have thick hair, however, the daring cut can easily cut your styling time in half!
A stacked bob is longer in the front with layers that gradually get shorter at the back of your head. The chic cut instantly gives any thick mane a light, bouncy feel.
One of the best things about naturally straight hair is how easy it is to style. Rolling out of bed with perfectly sleek strands is every girl’s dream. If you love wearing your natural texture on a daily basis, a lengthier cut with basic long layers may be perfect for you.
Glass hair has been one of the biggest beauty trends of 2018 and we don’t see the sleek, blunt bob losing popularity anytime soon. Women with straight hair have a particularly easy time sporting this cut. If you’re dealing with frizz, we recommend the Biolage SmoothProof Serum. The product infuses hair with weightless smoothness leaving it frizz-free and easy to control while keeping it natural to the touch.
Traditional Pixie Cut
When it comes to low maintenance cuts, pixies are at the top of the list. If you have straight hair, a traditional pixie cut will be the wash-and-go style of your dreams!
Looking for a cut that will instantly bring texture to your stick-straight strands? Ask your stylists for a pixie with tons of layers.
