Length Wars: Mid-Length and Choppy vs. Short and Structured

  • v/s
Mid-length and choppy or short and structured – which will you choose?

Which length will you choose?

If you've kept an eye on the hair trends lately, you may have noticed that 2018 is being dominated by two very different hair styles. While women left and right are rocking mid-length, choppy locks, just as many are embracing an ultra-short, structured 'do. So, how's a girl to choose? To help you decide the cut, we're pitting the two prettiest hair lengths of the year against each other. The anticipation begs the question, which one will come out on top?

 

Mid-length, Choppy Locks

The style: Embrace your flyways with this choppy and carefree mid-length style. Ideal for "get up and go" girls, or during seasons when the weather is less predictable (we're looking at you, summer and winter), you can leave your hot iron unplugged and enjoy windswept, gorgeously disheveled locks!

The hairstyle: Windswept doesn't mean out of control. A mattifying texturizing spray after blow-drying will help give you an edgy finish with workable control.

What the editors say: This look doesn't work as well on flat hair. To keep hair feeling and looking healthy, ask your L'Oréal Professionnel stylist about the different Powermix masks by Serie Expert, each one formulated for a different hair concern.

Short and Structured Strands

The style: This ultra-short and structured pixie cut is guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowd – especially when paired with a bright platinum or silver shade!

The hairstyle: The key to success with this look is all in the sleek, blunt finish (and a confident attitude of course!) For extra shine, and to show off the color, apply a few drops of a nourishing oil along the lengths and ends.

What the editors say: From color care to trims, this look needs regular maintenance – so your hair stylist is about to be your new best friend! That said, we love the androgynous beauty behind this style, a modern twist on the 60s bowl cut.

So, mid-length and wild, or ultra-short and super structured? Vote now!
