Hairstylist Ronnie Berg wasted no time in telling me why she currently loves this particular length on her clients: “It’s easier to manage compared to super long hair or a very short bob,” said Berg. “Typically, it’s already past the shoulders so there’s no awkward length to grow through, but it still feels modern and different,” she added. What’s more, Berg believes that a mid-length cut makes hair look much healthier, as it bounces off of the shoulders. “If your hair is fine, a [mid-length cut] can lend a structure,” Berg told me. Curly hair in particular can look lusciously thick when one length; adding in a few “invisible layers” (layers that sit under a longer section of hair) can further lend lengths shape and take some of the weight out. Put simply, a mid-length cut is great for those who fancy a change but don’t want to do anything too drastic.
