Mid-length and choppy vs. short and structured

Welcome back to Match the Look, our regular column where we pitch two on-trend hairstyles against one-another and ask you to choose your favorite! Today, the mid-length choppy cut goes up against a short, structured style. Which one will come out on top?

Mid-length and choppy locks


The style: Embrace your flyways with this choppy and carefree mid-length style. Ideal for autumn and winter, when the weather is less predictable, you can leave your hot iron unplugged and enjoy windswept, gorgeously disheveled locks!


The hairstyle: Windswept doesn't mean out of control. A mattifying texturizing spray, such as Messy Cliché from the Tecni.Art collection , after blow-drying will help give you an urban, edgy finish and workable control.


What the editors say: This look doesn't work as well on flat, lifeless hair. To keep hair feeling and looking healthy, ask your L'Oréal Professionnel stylist about the different Powermix masks by Serie Expert, each one formulated for a different hair concern.


Short and structured style


The style: For the brave souls among us, this ultra-short and structured pixie cut is guaranteed to make you stand out from the crowd – especially when paired with a bright platinum or silver shade!


The hairstyle: The key to success is all in the sleek, blunt finish (and a confident attitude of course!). For extra shine, and to show off the color, apply a few drops of Mythic Oil Huile Originale along the lengths and ends.


What the editors say: From color care to trims, this look needs regular maintenance – your hair stylist is about to be your new best friend! That said, we love the androgynous beauty behind this style, a modern twist on the 60s bowl cut.

So, mid-length and a bit wild, or ultra-short and super structured? Vote now!
