7 Best Hairstyles for Wavy Hair, According to Stylists


I have a love-hate relationship with my wavy hair. On good hair days, it's wonderful and flowy, but taming it can be an absolute nightmare. That being said, wavy hair definitely has its pros—it's an ideal way to add some texture and volume to a hairstyle that lacks dimension. Plus, it complements many different hairstyles, making it one of the most coveted finishes after a salon haircut.


Want in on the waves? Whether you have long or short wavy hair, we asked hairstylists for the best hairstyles to pair with your glorious curls the next time you go to the salon.

1. Blunt Bob

A blunt bob is known for its straight lines, particularly at the ends, for a clean, precise look. For those with wavy hair, the hair itself won't be straight, but it will have a uniformed look with the same length all around. "Depending on the density of the hair, a blunt bob can enhance wavy hair if it's on the finer side," says Shelly Aguirre, Stylist at Maxine Salon in Chicago. It's also a great, face-framing hairstyle for round faces.
