Bowl cut: the classic haircut gets reinvented

Forget 1960s nightmares of schoolboy haircuts, the bowl cut has had enough of being off the fashion radar, jumping instead into women's hairstyle trends with aplomb! We look at three different ways of styling the bold and beautiful bowl cut...

Textured tomboy

Bangs are famously good at emphasizing the eyes, so the bowl cut gets top marks for peeper-appeal. We love this contemporary version, where the edges stay neat and tidy, but the front and top sections are lightly tousled using a texturizing paste like Web from the Tecni.ART line by L'Oréal Professionnel.

Top tip: When getting your bowl cut, ask the stylist to add layers and slightly piecey bangs that beg to be tousled (you can leave out that last bit if you prefer).

Modern rock glamour

In what could be seen as a modern ode to The Beatles, this super chic and shiny version of the bowl cut was born to be center-stage. Try the Nutrifier shine-enhancing shampoo and conditioner by Serie Expert followed by a heat protector, then use your curling iron to very lightly curl the hair inwards towards the face for natural-looking bounce and shine.

Top tip: This look is perfect for when your bangs are growing out, as the curl re-shortens them to eye-level.

A foolproof finish

The bowl cut doesn't just work on the catwalk, it walks head high on the sidewalk too. This season, both make-up and hair styling trends are all about natural finishes and contrasting textures, so bring this to your bowl cut with a clarifying shampoo and conditioner. We recommend Pure Resource by Serie Expert, which cleanses the scalp and hair of any residue build-up, leaving your locks feeling fresh and swishy!

Top tip: For an on-trend everyday look, pair your natural-looking bowl cut with urban accessories and a matte lip.

Our conclusion: It's official. The bowl is back!
