Timeless: a smooth mid-length cut

Smooth, mid-length hair that stops just at the level of the collarbone – a style also known as the 'clavicut' – is an elegant, sleek and feminine basic with which we never get bored.

The clavicut: ensuring a good head on your shoulders

'The clavicut is all over the catwalks!.' exclaims Denis Holbecq, L'Oréal Professionnel's ambassador stylist. It's often the choice of designers because this mid-length cut gracefully emphasises the neck and shows the soft curve of a models' shoulders. You cannot go wrong with this unbeatable classic!

A length that loves every colour

What makes this smooth, mid-length cut so successful is how easy it is to wear. 'It works well with many colour bases, dark, medium or light, as well as with any highlights you feel like adding. And don't think twice about a dip-dye. Just go for it! Be careful with layering, however, as it can reduce fine hair's volume.' Apart from rectangular faces with square jaw lines, the mid-length cut suits all face shapes.

Easy to wear and easy to style

This cut's natural look means it doesn't need a lot of upkeep. For hair that isn't naturally straight, though, a professional helping hand is needed. You can turn to a hair stylist, or do it yourself with some careful styling using the texturising matte-effect spray, Next Day Hair by L'Oréal Professionnel.
