With textured lobs and chin length bobs flooding our Instagram feeds lately, it's no wonder more and more of us are deciding to go for the chop. But even though shorter hairstyles are in vogue at the moment, there might be times when you look in the mirror and pine for your longer lengths. What comes next — the decision to grow out your strands — is often referred to as the "awkward phase," when your hair is hard to style and far from the length you're after.
It's also the point where you might revert back to a short cut as your patience runs thin. But if you're going strong, and still growing out your hair, there are a handful of mid-length styles that make the hump easy (and stylish) to get over. To help you out of your style rut, we rounded up some of our favourite looks for mid-length strands, ahead.
