Timeless: a smooth mid-length cut

Smooth, mid-length hair which stops just at the level of the collar bone (also known as a "clavicut") is an elegant, clean and feminine basic that we'll never get bored of. Jennifer Aniston neither, it would seem...

The clavicut: for a good head on one's shoulders

"The clavicut is all over the catwalks!" Denis Holbecq, L'Oréal Professionnel's ambassador stylist exclaims. Designers often choose this mid-length cut because it gracefully emphasizes the neck and shows the soft curve of models' shoulders. With this unbeatable classic, you can't go wrong!

A length that loves every color

What makes the smooth mid-length cut so successful is how easy to wear it is. "It works well with many color bases, whether dark, medium or light, as well as any highlights you feel like adding. And don't think twice about a dip-dye, go for it! Be careful, however, with layering, as it can reduce volume in fine hair." Apart from rectangular faces with square jaw lines, the mid-length cut suits all face shapes.

Mid-length hair is not only easy to wear but also to style.

Because of this cut's natural look, it doesn't need much upkeep. For hair that isn't naturally straight, however, a professional helping hand is required. Either you can turn to a hair stylist, or do it yourself with some careful styling using the texturizing matte-effect spray Next Day Hair by L'Oréal Professionnel.
