With school right around the corner, you may be thinking about switching up your beauty look. From finding a new skin care routine to deciding on a new daily makeup look, there are a lot of ways to prepare for back to school season. But what about your hair? A new hair color or hairstyle can completely change your vibe, but nothing says “new school year, new me” like a fresh new cut. Here are five haircuts to consider getting before back to school season:


If you’re currently rocking long locks and aren’t quite ready to part ways with your length, long layers are a great way to switch up your hairstyle with minimum shortening. There are endless opportunities when it comes to deciding on a hair style to show off your new ‘do. For a heat-free option, try using the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty to add volume, thickness, and texture to your layered mane. If you prefer a blowout, spritz your strands with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray before blow drying your hair straight.

Maybe you’re been contemplating getting bangs for a while now but aren’t totally sold on adding an extra step to your styling routine. Lucky for you, shaggy bangs are totally low-maintenance and super in. Style your hair as you please while letting your long, messy bangs do their thing. Finish with a few sprays of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray to give your roots some extra volume.


If you feel like cutting some length off your mane, a blunt shoulder length shag is a fun, trendy haircut to try. The blunt ends of this haircut make it edgy while the shaggy layers keep it carefree. Style your hair with the a texturizing pomade to create a messy, piece-y hairstyle that will highlight your new cut.


Another super fun layered hairstyle, a textured lob is a great way to try out a short hairstyle without losing all your length in the front. That’s right—your hair will stay longer in the front (think shoulder length) while it slants to a shorter length at the back of your head (usually around the nape of your neck). You won’t have to deal with the constant need to put your hair up in hot weather and you’ll have a trendy hairstyle your peers will envy—it doesn’t get much better than that. To style it, spray the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray on towel-dried hair to define the shape and texture of your locks.

If you’re craving a dramatic change and want to go short—a pixie crop will do the job! One of the best things about this short hairstyle is that it’s super low maintenance. You can even roll out of bed and head out the door without looking a mess on those days you want to snooze your alarm. When you do style it, use a paste or pomade to add texture to each short strand for a messy look.
