April 10, 2024

In recent years, there has been a noticeable shift in hairstyle preferences, with more and more clients wanting low-maintenance cuts that still look sophisticated and stylish.

Among the most sought-after choices are chic and simple looks that offer the perfect balance between chic and practical.  Read on as we explore the growing trend of low-maintenance hairstyles and provide tips on achieving a stylish look with minimal upkeep.

The Popularity of Low Maintenance Haircuts

In today’s fast-paced world, where time is often a luxury, hairstyles that require minimal work have become increasingly popular. Busy lifestyles influence hairstyle choices, leading clients to seek low maintenance options that still allow them to look put-together. 

This growing demand reflects a broader trend in the beauty industry towards simplicity and practicality that still has that 2024 wow factor.



Low maintenance haircuts offer versatility for various occasions, making them suitable for both professional settings and more casual outings. They provide a balance between short  and long hair, offering the best of both worlds. Medium length hair, in particular, never goes out of style. Its versatility allows for a wide range of styling options, from sleek and polished to tousled.

Medium length haircuts are prized for their flexibility. They allow clients to experiment with different looks while offering easy maintenance. Whether it’s adding layers for volume, opting for a blunt cut with a sleek appearance, or incorporating bangs, medium length haircuts can be personalized to suit anyone. 


Choosing the Right Low Maintenance Medium Length Haircut

Face Shape Considerations

Understanding your client’s face shape is the first step in choosing the perfect low maintenance haircut. Here are some guidelines to help you  make the right decision.

Visual Aids and Examples: Look for visual aids and examples that illustrate how different cuts complement specific face shapes. This can include photographs, hairstyle guides, or scrolling through social media to visualize how various styles will look.

  • Oval faces: Oval faces are versatile and can carry off various styles, including micro fringes paired with the on trend Electric Copper Bold Bob.
  • Round faces: Opt for hairstyles with volume and height to elongate the face, such as layered cuts or French bob.
  • Square faces: Soften angular features with layered looks such as the shullet haircut with a longer choppy fringe or side-swept bangs to create a more rounded appearance.
  • Heart-shaped faces: Choose styles that balance the width of the forehead with the narrowness of the chin, such as a long bob with sleek layers.
  • Diamond faces: Emphasize cheekbones and soften angular features with a curly shag or a layered bob that will encourage texture while adding softness and shape.

Adapting Popular Cuts: While certain haircuts may be trendy at a given time, it’s essential to adapt them to suit your client’s individual features. Work with your client to create a low maintenance cut that really compliments their face shape and personal style.


Texture-Friendly Options

When selecting a low maintenance haircut, it’s essential to consider your client’s hair texture to ensure that the style complements and enhances their natural hair’s unique characteristics.

  • Consider Hair Texture: Different hair textures require different approaches to styling. Whether your client has straight, wavy, curly, or coily hair, certain cuts will work better with specific textures. For example, layered cuts can add movement and volume to straight hair, while textured cuts can enhance natural curls or waves.
  • Choose Cuts Wisely: Opt for haircuts that work well with your client’s natural texture. For straight hair, consider blunt cuts or long layers that add volume and dimension. If your client has wavy or curly hair, embrace the texture with layered cuts or shaggy styles that enhance their curls and reduce frizz.
  • Enhance Natural Texture: Embrace your client’s hair’s natural texture by using styling products such as the RE/START CURLS Range by Revlon Professional that enhances and defines all types of curls and waves. For straight hair, use volumizing products to add body and texture. For curly or wavy hair, opt for curl-enhancing creams or gels such as the innovative RE/START™ CURLS MULTIPURPOSE GEL-TO-OIL to help balance the scalp microbiome* while nourishing and defining the curls. Infused with natural oils for extra bouncy curls, this 95% natural origin oil formula can be used as a pre-wash, definer or refresher.
  • Keep Maintenance Low: Choose a haircut that allows for easy styling and minimal upkeep. Low maintenance styles that work well with your client’s natural texture will save them time and effort in their daily hair routine. Avoid hairstyles that require excessive heat styling or products that can damage hair in the long run.
