The Long Bob with Bangs

Not too long, not too short, the "lob," or longer sister to the classic bob, adds even more versatility and styling options to your haircut -- yep, this is a bob long enough to pull into a ponytail! Change it up with long bangs, wispy sideswept bangs, or even extra-short baby bangs.

Sleek Bob

Slightly angle longer bangs to lengthen and slim your face. Keep the layers to a minimum and let choppy ends hit just above the collarbone. Finish this look with a flatiron and an anti-frizz serum for the ultimate sleek, chic 'do.

Tapered Layers

Refine a shoulder-length haircut by using a razor to taper only the hair that frames the face, starting anywhere from cheekbone to chin. The result? Swingy stands that highlight your features, and gently drift from updos in that oh-so-pretty way.

Shoulder-Length Layers

Remember the "Rachel" -- that medium-length, multilayered cut popularized by Jennifer Aniston in Friends, circa 1995? Consider this style the modern equivalent -- only softer and more rounded. These gentle layers combined with the mid-length cut flatter any face.

Flip for It

Add a few layers just at the ends of hair to gain these pretty, flipped-up ends. Want hair this neat? Use a smoothing serum and flat brush to tame flyaways.

Sideswept Bangs

What's more flattering than long layers and soft, sideswept bangs? As far as haircuts go, this one's a winner. Few styles work on almost any face shape -- but this one will.

Red Alert

This medium hairstyle's beauty is in its simplicity: A center part with long layers, which add movement. And the vibrant crimson shade? Simply gorgeous.

Band Together

Instead of the basic ponytail, smooth medium-length hair away from your face with the easiest style-maker ever: the headband. Wear more than one to create a unique look.

Do the Wave

Wearing your wavy hair medium-length or longer? If the hair is layered, make the first cut close to chin length to avoid too-springy curls on top, and cut to follow the its natural loose swirls.

I wish there were better pictures of some of the styles. I have wavey/curly/thick hair and it is hard to find a style that does not take for ever to do.

11 NEW styles for spring? None of these look like a new trend or comeback style, just the same usual staple hairstyles. And what about short hair?
