“A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life,” said the designer Coco Chanel—who, with her game-changing bob, understood the power of a good pair of shears firsthand. Indeed, there’s little that marks a life transition like taking scissors to your strands.
If you’re in need of a mid-season switch-up and thinking about a breezy, above-the-shoulder style, look no further than Cara Delevingne, whose side-swept chop acts as the ultimate, carefree street-style accessory. And if it’s those new statement earrings you want to show off, a look like Rihanna‘s Parisian-inspired swingy bob will ensure they have their moment in the sun. For a retro take on a classic, make like Yara Shahidi and add some curly bangs to cut.
As for those who are looking for a radical change? Pin Adwoa Aboah‘s cool-girl shave or closely cropped curls to your board for fresh style to ring in fall. Here, eight haircuts to try on for summer’s last stretch.
