Why is the One-Length Haircut So Timeless?

Whether you’ve been rocking layers for a couple of months or for years and you want to try the one-length cut, now is the time! This cut will make any style and effortless. Not to mention, whether you decide to part your hair to the side or to the middle, you can’t go wrong! There won’t be any strands that stick out and cause a bad hair day because each piece will be equally the same. The one-length style is also great because it’s not just about your hair. It also accentuates your beautiful eyes, face shape, and makeup! In the end, you’ll have a cut that looks glossy and healthy, and just because you’re going layer-free doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice texture and dimension. Read on to see the ideal style you could go with!

Style Options

The great thing about the one-length cut is that there’s a length for everyone! One style that’s everlasting and classic that you could be strutting around is the bob. This short cut is usually right above your shoulders (but could be shorter if you choose!) and aligns with your jawline. It’s also the ultimate go-to cut if you don’t want to spend too much time styling your hair. Just add in some waves or curls and voila! It’s gorgeous and hassle-free. You can also put a twist on the bob by going with the Asymmetrical bob. This style is a little shorter in the back and longer in the front, however, without any layers. Should you decide to keep your long, sleek look if that’s what you currently have, then the long one-length cut is a no-brainer. You could also choose to cut your hair just a little beyond your shoulders – known as the lob. You’ll get to have the best of both words – short and long – and won’t be limited as to how you can style it. Finally, if you really want to spruce things up, add some new color to your cut! For example, you can add some face-framing highlights to your long cut or take your short bob and make it an ombre bob with a darker color at the top and gradually descending into a much lighter color toward the bottom. No matter what you opt for, you can’t go wrong!

Straight, Curly, or Wavy

You’ll love that you went with the one-length cut because it is so easy to style! If you’re going for the sleek and polished look, then grab that straightener and get to work! You’ll end up with a silky-smooth and sophisticated look that is sure to have all eyes on you. If you want tight and coiled locks, go for it! You can bet each and every curl will get noticed no matter where you go. Should you prefer more of a wavy look, wrap separate strands of your hair around the curling iron and you can expect to end up with a gorgeous head of show-stopping loose waves. Last, but definitely not least, the “messy” or “shag” look is one that is here to stay. Grab that styling wand once your hair is dry and curl larger pieces about halfway through the length to get the perfect result. Once you’ve achieved the style, use your hands and a texture spray to scrunch and twirl sections into the disheveled look. It’s the perfect laid-back look when you’re pressed for time or want something flawless and not “too done!”
