Style Focus: The Kitty Cut

New year, new style, new you? The kitty cut is a great option for those with long hair looking to add some personality and volume.

This long layered bob style haircut offers a great continuation for those who opted for a shorter bob or long layers last autmumn and have seen it grow out. Generally ending around the collarbone, this style enhances your facial features by nicely framing your face and adding volume and bounce. The kitty cut therefor makes it super flexible to work with when starting from various hair types, textures (including curly hair!) and hair lengths.

Not as wild or out there as the wolfcut, this offers a great middle ground when you want something a bit more interesting whilst still maintaining a level of sophistication and elegance. That said, keeping a kitty cut looking effortless, with little blow-drying or styling, still can look fantastic.

The style requires some maintenance to keep the cut’s balance and the layers + fringe / bangs in check. Lots of ways how to wear the style, whether with a clear middle or side parting, or keeping the fringe messy. Highlights are an option if you want to enhance the face framing even further.
