Blunt edges don’t just work for bob styles. If you’re sporting shoulder-length hair and want an effortless look, add some mousse to the mid-length of your hair and let it air-dry.

Kim Kardashian’s hairstylist Chris Appleton is famous for his signature undone waves, which have a natural finish. You can achieve this look by curling your hair from the middle and not from the roots, making sure the curl pattern turns away from your face. After you’re done, curl the ends in the opposite direction and add some texturizing spray.
