Shoulder length hair is ideal for many girls because it works well for different textures and face shapes. While shorter hair is easier to deal with, shoulder length hair offers girls more styling options--giving them the chance to try a variety of hairstyles depending on their mood, outfit and the time they have in the morning.
Shoulder length hair can be flat ironed straight. You can have a side or middle part for this sleek style. Before applying any type of heat, work a dime-sized amount of a product that protects tresses from heat into your hair. To prevent hair from frizzing later in the day, apply an anti-frizz product. Add a headband or sparkly hair clip.
Shoulder length hair can be brushed back to create a ponytail. Using elastic ponytail holders prevents hair from breaking, especially if ponytails are worn often. A high ponytail looks more sophisticated, and a low ponytail creates a more casual look. Use a poof in the front or braid some sections of hair on the sides to add variety to this everyday style.
Shoulder length hair can be styled into loose curls. Curling irons come in many sizes to create a variety of curly looks. Using a holding spray after curls have been created will make the style last longer. You can leave these curls down, pull some back into a half ponytail or pull them into curly ponytail, leaving wisps around your face.
Shoulder length hair is long enough to be swept into a bun. The bun can be placed higher on the head for a more formal look, or closer to the nape of the neck for a relaxed style. Hair buns are popular for formal dances, and hair jewels and clips add glamour to the look. Looser, messy buns are casual updos often seen on celebrities and can be worn with or without headbands.
Shoulder length hair can be styled into French braids. Common French braid styles are one plait down the centre of the head, or a centre part with a French braid on each side; the possibilities are limited only by the braider's creativity.
Cornrows work well on shoulder length hair and can be created in a number of intricate styles. There are salons that specialise in hair braiding.
For an ethnic style, shoulder length hair can be styled into twists. Twists work best with coarser hair textures, and fine hair can quickly slip out of place. Styling wax can help keep twists in place for thinner hair textures.
Some flatirons and curling irons come with crimping plates and attachments. Crimping sizes vary and can create different looks. Large crimps can be combed out to create the look of wavy hair.
