Wavy hair looks gorgeous. Why flatten it out when you can enjoy the kink and make your mane look lush and lively! Don't just take our word for it. Turn to actress par excellence and L'Oreal Paris' newest International Spokesperson Susan Sarandon for some definitive inspiration on how to embrace the natural wavy texture of your hair and transform it into your crowning glory. Susan has rarely ever strayed far from her signature medium-length wavy hair, proving the point that if a style looks good on you, there's absolutely no reason to ditch it for another.
Besides the fact that the hairstyle absolutely flatters the 69-year old actress, here are three other reasons why we love her medium-length wavy hair and think that it'd be just as perfect a fit for you too:
It is versatile: You can wear your hair loose, pin it up on one side, secure it into a half-up, make a ponytail or sculpt it into a textured updo – while the length is ideal for you to experiment with styles and looks, the wavy texture ensures that your strands never appear flat or boring. Add subtle layers on the sides and back to induce movement and energy in your mane or wear your hair with bangs – the options are limitless! Plus, this length and texture of hair suits almost every woman, irrespective of her age or face shape, so you can never go wrong with it.
It is easy to manage and style: Forget taming frizzy curls or adding texture to poker-straight hair. Just chop your wavy locks at shoulder-length and enjoy ease of styling and manageability. While shorter haircuts look androgynous and longer locks call for heavy-duty pamper and management, medium-length hair looks feminine, is easier to oil, shampoo and condition on a regular basis, and can be left to air dry and take on a natural texture and style. Remember to mist your precious locks with some strand smoother serum spray to detangle knots and inject a soft shine to the strands.
It takes years off the face: Medium-length wavy haircuts instantly take years off your face and make you look younger. Don't believe us? Simply compare Ms. Sarandon's looks over the decades. Doesn't she look just as amazing as she did all those years ago? While beauty does come from within, knowing what suits you goes a long way in making you look and feel good.
Since 2016 is going to be about all things 'au naturel', do give your heat styling tools a breather and get your wavy hair chopped at medium-length. We bet you'll love the pretty curves!
