Mid-length and messy: a rebellious rockstar style

The layered mid-length cut, or messy long bob, is the straight or wavy "clavicut"'s rebel sister. This style gives a breath of fresh, wild, rocker air to hairstyles of fashionistas around the world.

Layered and messy, the mid-length cut goes wild

It might be hard to believe sometimes, but it just takes a few skilled scissor flicks on your hair to strikingly change your appearance. Take a mid-length layered and messy style, for example, which differs considerably from its classic straight and wavy versions. We love it cleverly dishevelled, giving its wearer such a nonchalant, rock-chic allure that it almost borders on provocative!

Mess it up and make a point

"Opting for a mid-length layered and messy style brings lightness to thick and heavy hair. The geometry of this cut gives charisma to long-, rectangular- and oval-shaped faces" enthusiastically assures the hair stylist and ambassador for L'Oréal Professionnel Denis Holbecq. In his opinion, the style is "femme fatale on blondes, rocking on brunettes and wild on redheads." You've no excuse now not to mess things up from time to time. Hairstyle-speaking, of course.

A wild style that needs precision

While we can dishevel or curl hair ourselves for the most part, don't forget that without carefully-cut layering, the 'wild' side can easily get out of control. To achieve a messy bob with an almost feline allure, it is recommended to entrust the task of layering to an expert stylist.
