Can we talk about how much we love shoulder-grazing hair for a minute? Long bobs have everything going for them — they’re stylish, youthful, and the cut flatters just about everyone. But, what happens when you don’t want to let your hair just hang there
? It can be tricky to switch up your style, especially if you’re craving a dressier look. “It’s hard to find ideas for fun styles to wear at night that work with my shoulder-length hair,” says Anna Gray, our model for this tutorial. Not anymore, Anna. Not anymore.
We reached out to hairstylist Bradley Irion
for a crash course in making the most of mid-length hair, a cut that’s ignored all too often in the glossies and runways. As you’re about to see, he delivered — majorly. And, trust us, even if you don’t have him on speed-dial, you’ll still be able to pull off these looks at home. Now, that’s something to smile about.
