There’s no denying that wavy hair is truly special and sought after. It’s the perfect way to flaunt a bit of texture and rock a mane that doesn’t lack volume. So, it’s no surprise that the best haircuts for wavy hair are a hot topic. The right cuts for wavy hair can change the game, allowing you to enhance your features if you have short hair, flaunt your length with long hair, or achieve the perfect balance with medium hair. Plainly put, the right haircut takes your wavy hair to the next level. Want in? Follow along as we share 21 wavy haircuts that are perfect for adding extra oomph to your locks in 2020.
There is no better way to add some pizazz to short wavy hair than with an asymmetrical bob. This super chic haircut plays with angles by flaunting strands that are longer on one side. An excellent way to veer away from the traditional bob, this haircut is great for making a stunning statement. All you need is a touch of curl mousse, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Curl Mousse, to give your mane effortless body and movement that you’re sure to love.
Another one of our favorite cuts for wavy hair? The inverted bob! Featuring a tapered back with stacked layers and a long front, this haircut oozes edge and sass. We also love that you can totally customize this cut to suit your needs. From a flat back to a more curved shape, you have total control over how you want this cut to look!
If you can’t resist a classic haircut, the tousled wavy bob may be just what you need. An excellent way to frame your face and play with texture, you can’t go wrong. We also dig that this cut is a great option for those who love minimal styling. Apply a small amount of hair putty, like the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Hair Putty, and scrunch your strands to create tousled definition.
Want to spice things up on the haircut front? A choppy bob might be the wavy haircut for you. This gorgeous cut adds volume and texture to your bob that will perfectly complement your waves. Another great pick for anyone who opts for low maintenance styles, just add hair mousse to your strands to knock this look out of the park.
If you love short haircuts, you may want to add the neck-length bob to your must-try list. Versatile and chic, this haircut adds soft movement to your mane for a put-together ‘do. And if you want to take things up a notch, you can add a touch of balayage highlights into the mix for head-turning dimension.
Ah, the trendy lob haircut! A style that suits medium-length strands to a tee, this haircut tops the list when it comes to flattering haircuts for wavy hair. Whether you decide to flaunt this look just above your shoulders, at shoulder level, or just below, you’ll quickly see why this cut is one of the most requested styles in the hair world.
Dare to play with various lengths? We think that the layered lob should be on your radar. A nice change of pace from the traditional haircut, this style works layers into your mane for added volume, shape, and movement.
Messy hair, don’t care! That’s what you can expect once you try the choppy lob on for size. This gorgeous haircut creates a disheveled, yet stylish look that won’t go unnoticed. And if you’re game for adding even more dimension to your hair, consider giving an ombré hair color a try. What a combination!
Ready to do your wavy hair justice? Look no further than the angled lob. Since this haircut is all about rocking shorter hair at the back and having it transition gradually to a longer length at the front, you’ll have tons of fun styling your strands. The hairstyle looks especially pretty on round face shapes, because the variation in lengths works wonders to visually elongate your face.
If you’re the kind of person that loves to experiment with short haircuts for wavy hair, it’s time to show the pixie cut some love. This haircut is super easy to style and even easier to maintain, making it a top pick. And since this haircut for wavy hair is on the shorter side, it’s easy to show off your texture while keeping your hair out of your face. Consider it a win-win!
On the hunt for a super neat and stylish haircut for wavy hair? It’s time to give the tapered pixie cut a go! This short, fun haircut gives your strands body at the front and gradually gets shorter at the back and on the sides for a trendy alternative to the traditional pixie.
Can’t get enough of pixie cuts? Feel free to give your short locks a stylish upgrade with the help of the side-swept pixie. This cut features face-framing bangs and is totally transformed by your wavy texture. It’s a great option for those who constantly find themselves pressed for time since styling is oh so easy. Just add a touch of curl mousse to your strands, scrunch, and let air dry.
In the mood for a playful ‘do? An undercut will liven up your wavy strands. With a choice of shaving the back, sides, or both, you have various options that will allow you to channel your inner rock star. You can also experiment with shaved designs for a more edgy feel. Perfect for all lengths, this flattering look will take your style up a few notches.
Love to flaunt retro-inspired styles? The shag haircut may be your perfect match. This ‘70s haircut offers tons of layers and texture for a head-turning ‘do. A great way to leave blunt layers behind, this cut gives you free rein to play with length while complementing your face shape for a standout look.
Want to hop on the layered haircut trend? U-shaped layers will not disappoint. This haircut is an excellent choice for those who prefer to rock subtler layers. As the name suggests, your strands will be cut into a ‘U’ shape for rounded layers throughout.
Sure, any layers are a great way to switch things up in the haircut department, but if you want to lean on the bolder side, V-cut layers are the way to go. This layering technique gives your strands tons of movement while working to reduce the bulkiness of thick, wavy hair.
Now that you have layers on the brain, you can’t go wrong with test driving traditional long layers. This haircut will let you play with texture while showing off your cascading length, making it one of our favorite haircuts for wavy hair.
This universally flattering haircut will make quite the statement. A simple and practical haircut without any layers, the blunt cut serves as a fabulous low maintenance pick for those who love a minimalistic look.
Want to combine sophistication and elegance with your next haircut? Look no further than the pompadour. While it’s easy to think that this cut is reserved for men, women have made this style all their own. Flaunting short sides with wavy length at the top, this look is a great way to be a trendsetter. Head on over to our article, How to Style a Quiff Haircut, for some style inspiration.
Shoulder-length hair is seriously in style! A chic choice for those who don’t want to go super short or too long, you can count on this haircut to serve up the perfect amount of length and texture.
Interested in trying your hand at hairstyles with bangs? We have the perfect style in mind: Curtain bangs, it’s your time to shine! Unlike classic bangs, this style parts your bangs right down the middle to frame your face beautifully. Whether you’re rocking a bob, lob, or a layered mane, these bangs will serve as the perfect finishing touch to any haircut for wavy hair.
