Mid-length and choppy vs. short and structured

In today's Match the Look head-to-head, we pit the mid-length choppy cut up against a short, structured style. Which one will come out on top?

Mid-length and choppy locks


The style: Embrace your flyways with this choppy and carefree mid-length style. Ideal for spring and summer, you can leave your hairdryer and hot iron unplugged and enjoy the natural finish of gorgeously disheveled locks!


The hairstyle: Windswept doesn't mean out of control. Apply a mattifying texturizing spray, such as Messy Cliché from the Tecni.Art collection, after blow-drying to help give you an urban, edgy finish and workable control.


What the editors say: This look doesn't mix with flat, lifeless 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 style


The style: For the brave souls among us, 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 is all in the sleek, blunt finish. (And a confident attitude of course!) For extra shine and to show off the colour, apply a few drops of Mythic Oil along the lengths and ends.


What the editors say: From colour care to trims, this look requires regular maintenance – so your hair stylist is about to become 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 a bit wild, or ultra-short and super structured? Vote now!
