The layered mid-length cut, or messy long bob, is the rebel sister to the straight or wavy 'clavicut'. This style gives a breath of fresh, wild, rocker air to the hairstyles of fashionistas around the world.
Layered and messy, mid-length goes wild
Though it's sometimes hard to believe, it really can take just a few skilled scissor flicks to change your appearance strikingly. Take a mid-length layered and messy style for example, which is considerably different from its classic straight and wavy cousins. We love this cleverly dishevelled style, giving its wearer such a nonchalant, rock-chic allure that it almost borders on the provocative!
Mess it up and make a point
'Opting for a mid-length layered and messy style lightens thick and heavy hair. This cut's geometry gives charisma to long, rectangular and oval-shaped faces,' Denis Holbecq, hair stylist and ambassador for L'Oréal Professionnel, enthusiastically assures. For him, the style is 'femme fatale on blondes, rocking on brunettes and wild on redheads'. Do you need another reason to mess things up from time to time? Just in the hair department, of course.
A wild style in need of precision
While we can mostly dishevel or curl hair ourselves, don't forget that without carefully cut layering, it's easy for the 'wild' side to get out of control. To achieve a messy bob with an almost feline allure, entrust the job of layering to an expert stylist.
