Cropped cuts are some of the hottest styles out there, but not everyone has the courage to take the plunge and get a pixie or even a short bob. Fortunately, a shoulder length haircut offers the ideal compromise between short hair and long hair.
Hair that falls to your shoulders is short enough to be on-trend with some of the current hottest cropped styles.
