If You Want To Go Short
If you dare to really stir the style pot, take the plunge and go for a pixie cut that’s long on top. This cut works on all hair types— even curly! The maintenance is so low-key it’s almost non-existent — think 5-minute showers and two-minute blow dry sessions. Plus, it still has tons of versatility; Take the model’s side part vs. her Beatles mop look.

If You Have Medium-Length Hair
The one-length bob is of-the-moment yet as classic as a cable-knit sweater. It works well with normal to thick hair, whether it's straight or wavy. Best yet, it looks great when it's a little dirty and tousled (lucky you!).

If You Love Your Long Locks
If you can't part with your long, long hair, but still crave a change, opt for thick, full bangs. The length is long enough to pull back on bad hair days or fasten on the side if you’re in a rush. When they start to grow out, just brush them to the side for a cute swoop.
