Introducing the hottest new hair trend of this season - Cropped Waves.
Wavy hairstyles aren’t just for long locks. Getting your tresses trimmed to your chin has become the style of the season, with women taking the chop for a short hair look. But short hairstyles don’t start and finish at the straight bob or blunt. Cropped waves have become the face of the millennial movement, thanks to its bohemian vibes and fuss-free appeal. Polished perfection is the past, messy texture is the now.
Super-cute and uber-cool, cropped waves will seriously up your style game. The great thing about this look though is that you can determine how short you go. You don’t need to have inch after inch chopped off – anywhere from your shoulders upwards will give you plenty of length for short wavy hairstyles.
