Sleek mid-length hair: timeless and classic!

Straight, mid-length hair is minimalist, classic, feminine and elegant. Impossible to get bored of, this versatile hairstyle takes you back to basics in true style.

All about the look

This look is all over the catwalks according to our hairstyle ambassador! The cut is often chosen by designers because of its simple, clean and non-imposing aesthetic. Softly layered ends emphasize the shoulders, while the centre parting works to frame the face. How could you possibly go wrong with such a classic look?

Maximize your look with colour

The success of this cut lies in how well it suits every face shape, as well as every hair colour! Our hair expert discloses that this look works with all depths of colour – whether dark, medium, or light – and looks especially beautiful with soft, natural highlights or on-trend balayage. For those of you in search of an edgier alternative: consider a candy-coloured dip-dye!

Easy to wear, easy to style

Because this style is so low key and natural-looking, it doesn't require much maintenance outside of regular trims to keep things looking neat. If your hair isn't naturally straight, though, you may want to consider an in-salon relaxing treatment to make day-to-day styling truly effortless. Either way, always finish styling by distributing an oil-based serum through your mid-lengths and ends to tame the look of frizz and enhance shine!
