The cut: Disheveled midlength
Description: "This cut is little past collarbone with lots of texture and slightly shorter in the back," said John Barrett NYC stylist Dhiran Mistry. "It is ideal for people with slight wave in the hair, which makes styling less effort. The layers will influence the natural wave to come out more."
What to ask for at the salon: "Ask for a longer bob that is slightly asymmetric," he explained. "It should have round-shaped layers and lots of texture through the ends. It needs to look choppy and piecey. This helps ensure it will style properly and encourages the curl/wave, since you're removing weight from the ends."
Styling tip: "Use a sea salt spray or prep spray, such as Bumble & Bumble Surf Infusion Spray ($29) or Shu Uemura Depsea Foundation ($33). Dry the hair, scrunching it if there is a natural wave. Then using a wand or curling iron, alternate curls to create more of a natural piecey movement in the hair. Always leave the ends a little straighter."
