The thick mid-length cut with bangs, relaxed yet feminine, is the definition of rock n'roll with a soft side. But what is it about this "clavicut" that makes it such a sought-after look by stylish women? Perhaps the secret lies in its subtle volume and bangs, which give a graphic, minimalistic effect.
Bangs make a thick mid-length cut into a must-have
There is a happy medium between a classic smooth/wavy mid-length cut, and its deliberately disheveled version. Soft, feminine and a bit folksy, voilà: the thick clavicut with bangs. This bold-shaped style is, among other aspects, what gives trendsetting bloggers and red carpet stars-who've adopted the look worldwide - their special allure.
The mid-length cut with bangs softly frames the face
According to our specialist, hairstyle ambassador Denis Holbecq, this mid-length cut with bangs is the ideal face-framer: "It's a clavicut which provides the perfect frame to both round- and square-shaped faces, and the bangs emphasize the eyes. It's ideal for thick hair, and blond shades look especially great with this look, giving the face an angelic softness."
