Changing up your look can be both freeing and equally terrifying. Opting for a new hairstyle can inspire a newfound sense of confidence and style, but it is sometimes difficult to break out of our comfort zones. If you’re seeking inspiration for a new hairstyle, try one of these looks that never go out of style. And don’t forget to keep up with your new look even after you step out of the salon with professional hair styling products that can help maintain stronger, healthy hair.
Stylish Haircuts That Never Go Out of Style
1. Mid-Length Cut
You can easily sport the mid-length haircut whether you have ultra-straight, super curly, or any textured hair in between. This haircut typically falls two to four inches below your shoulder. This cut is easy to maintain and offers a variety of different ways to style it — from pin straight to beach waves. Add some layers for a fuller look.
2. Shaggy Shoulder Length Cut
A shoulder-length cut is the perfect in-between length — not too short and not too long that it becomes more maintenance. There are dozens of stylish ways to wear your shoulder-length hair, but opting for a shaggy cut can give you a bit of an edgier look.
The shaggy cut is often associated with a rock ‘n’ roll kind of vibe, featuring feathery layers closer to the top of your hair. This style can work with many hair types, but it works best with curly hair as that wavy movement lends to the jagged cut.
3. Lob Cut
The lob, also known as a long bob, is similar to a classic bob, but instead of ending near your ears like a bob, a lob cut ends between your ears and your shoulder. This hairstyle is chic and cute for women of any age and allows for some fun.
The choppy lob features more blunt edges to create a more natural, flowing look. If you have naturally straight hair, a sleek lob cut might be more your style. This cut works on many hair types, but those with thinner hair might go for a straight bob.

4. Blunt Bob with Bangs
Short hair never goes out of style — especially when it’s a short bob. A blunt bob features very straight edges at the bottom of the hair, and pairing this cut with bangs can make for a more unique yet timeless hairstyle. This style works for curly and straight hair.
Remember — if you have tighter curls, your hair may shrink up more than you expect once it dries. Curly hair can shrink up to 90 percent when dry, so you may want to consider a slightly longer cut, like a lob, to get a similar effect.
5. Long Layered Cut
A classic, simple look that gives an elegant, trendy appearance no matter what, the long layered cut is ideal for people with round faces. The long layers can elongate your face shape. If you’re looking for a new style to try out without wanting to cut too much length off, this is the perfect style for you. Layers add a bit of volume and texture to the hair while maintaining those long, luscious locks.
6. Pixie Cut
Though some people shy away from the dramatic pixie cut, almost every face shape looks good with short hair. However, carefully consider the kind of pixie cut you want before committing to the cut. This style has many variations: long pixie, short pixie, layered pixie, etc. You can opt for side-swept bangs, more blunt bangs, or no bangs at all. This is a timeless look for someone wanting to try a hairstyle that’s a bit different.
7. Side-Swept Bangs
If you’ve toyed with the idea of getting bangs but are nervous about committing to the change, side-swept bangs might be the move for you. This style of bangs sweeps across your forehead rather than falling flat against it. These do require a bit of styling but shouldn’t take much more effort when blow-drying your hair.

8. Curtain Bangs
Another way to experiment with bangs is by opting for curtain bangs. Curtain bangs are a great style that recently gained popularity but aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. This style of bangs parts with your hair and is off to both sides of your face rather than coming straight down on your forehead. They may also require less styling than straight-across bangs, depending on your hair type. Curtain bangs are longer than other bang styles and cut in a kind of arch shape.
9. Voluminous Layered Cut
A voluminous layer cut is a perfect look for people with medium to thick hair. This can lessen some of the weight from your hair while keeping maximum volume and adding texture. This look works for people with straight, wavy, and curly hair types. It’s also great for blowouts, but remember to use salon hairspray to maintain that style all day long.
