I’m here to change your mind about the monotony of super-straight, super-sleek hair — because it’s anything but boring. There are so many ways you can upgrade your hair, and you’re just dismissing it all because you think it won’t work for you. One look at this carousel, and you’ll change your mind. Ahead — the best haircuts for straight hair.
From the prettiest haircuts for long straight hair to the boldest haircuts for thin straight hair and short straight hair, here’s a lookbook for you to take cues from.
Ahead — cool-girl haircuts for super-long straight hair.
Honestly — concealing your forehead with face-skimming bangs is one of the most basic ways to elevate your style. This cut flatters a diamond-shaped face the best, and it works in sync with longer lengths. It plays into the illusion of widening the forehead and accentuating the cheekbones. If that’s what you’re looking for, dive right in.
Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Mangosteen & Avocado Hair Mask
A conditioner is necessary for your haircare routine but you must also invest in a hair mask as it is an integral part of any thoughtful haircare regimen. This mask is infused with superfoods like avocado as well as mangosteen to nourish and repair dry and damaged hair. Enriched with the goodness of Vitamin B5 to reinstate your tresses’ long-lost lustre, it retains their natural moisture balance too.
Do you think long straight haircuts are boring? This classic Jennifer Aniston hairdo is a multi-layered hairstyle with face-framing chunks. The layers modelled on this look are long and polished, and a little shorter toward the inside. This is a timeless haircut and it doesn’t imply too much of a change in your style.
Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Cacao Coconut & Coffee Shampoo
Recharge your hair by indulging in this superfoods-charged shampoo. Infused with coffee, coconut, and cacao, it moisturises the hair intensely, treats dandruff and frizz, improves circulation for accelerated growth of hair, and adds volume and strength without weighing your tresses down.
Looking for a shoulder-length straight haircut? The shag is back thanks to celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Billie Eilish. This hairstyle has a lot of texture and layers and is best paired with a full-on fringe. It’s modern, sharp, and has lots of character and movement. You can vary the aesthetic by complementing it with a bob, pixie, and other styles too.
Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Cacao Coconut & Coffee Conditioner
Supplement your hair care routine with this cocktail of ingredients to bolster the effects of the MyGlamm Superfoods Cacao Coconut & Coffee Shampoo. It softens and adds shine.
Ask your hairstylist to feather your hair. This is not the same as layering — it doesn’t change the shape of your hair. While feathering does feature layers, it just adds texture to the ends of your hair and makes them look soft, flowy, and feathered. The ends blend into your hair more seamlessly.
Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Passion Fruit & Rosemary Shampoo
If your hair is damaged from all the heat-styling tools you’ve been subjecting it to, this formula’s restorative properties can come to the rescue. Infused with Passion Fruit and Rosemary, pro-vitamin B5, it returns your tresses to their lustrous avatar while preventing breakage and strengthening your hair from the roots.
Ahead — cool-girl haircuts for super-slick but super-thin hair.
Looking for a pretty long haircut for thin hair? Take cues from this style — because it will sweep you off your feet. Notice how beautifully the bangs are draped across the side of the forehead. You don’t need voluminous hair to pull this off — or even any layers for that matter. The bangs do all the work. And they’re much more manageable than normal bangs as they aren’t in your face all the time.
Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Passion Fruit & Olive Oil Conditioner
Has your hair been feeling dry and brittle? This nourishing and moisturising blend of Passion Fruit and Olive Oil makes your hair healthier and enhances its lustre over time. Thanks to its composition of pro-vitamin B5, it hydrates and protects your hair without stripping them of moisture.
Pixie? Shag? You decide. This is a crossover between the two — borrowing elements from the best of both styles. A pixie shag is perfect for when you’re looking to add more movement and texture to your hair and make it appear thick. It’s cool, bold, and edgy. And it’s so easy to style.
Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Onion & Moringa Shampoo
Ah—‘onions’ don’t induce the nicest reaction, do they? Especially when they’re infused in shampoos and conditioners. The shampoo is here to prove you wrong. Formulated to control hair fall, it stimulates the roots and enhances the health of your hair while cleansing your scalp of build-up and residue, strengthening your strands, and making them silky-smooth. And if you’re unsure about the smell, the infusion of Moringa in the elixir lends a sweet, rejuvenating scent to your hair.
If you have fine or thin hair and have always wanted bangs, you can add some character to your limp mane by draping some strands across your forehead. This will add some shape and height to your hair immediately.
Use: MyGlamm Superfoods Onion & Moringa Hair Oil
You might like the idea of a champi; but what’s the point of it if you’re not using the right hair oil? This one excels at making your hair stronger, promoting growth and reducing breakage and fall, and restoring the scalp’s natural moisture over time.
Chin Length Bob
How do you feel about a chin-length, sleek bob?

An inverted bob, also known as a stacked bob, adds major volume to your hair. It’s a face-framing cut with layers stacked at the back of the head that become longer in the front.
Ahead — cool-girl haircuts for super-slick, super-short hair.
If you’re feeling experimental, you can try styling your hair into a bob. This haircut thrives on a sleek, straight mane, and looks all types of romantic. It does require maintenance, but the end result is stunning. If your hair is not as thick, you’ll be able to pull this off without looking puffy and frizzy. Remember that this style draws attention to your collarbones and shoulders.

Additionally, it diminishes hair breakage, reduces split ends and detangles the hair too.
How about chopping most of your length off? Unsure? Here. A bob, but add a couple of bangs— wispy, curtain bangs — to the mix, and you’re sporting an ultra-chic style. This one falls right above the shoulders and frames the sides of the face effortlessly. If you like bangs but don’t like how they’re always in your face, curtain bangs are the way to go.
Use: St. Botanica Ultra Nourishing Hair Shampoo
This one's a corsage of moisture-laden, hair-loving formulas like coconut oil, avocado oil, grape seed oil, jasmine essential oil, neem leaf extract, aloe vera extract, and milk protein that reinstate the softness of your hair.

Which face shape is best for straight hair?
It varies. Long, straight hair is ideal for those with round faces — because it reduces the roundness of the face. But a super-straight cut that ends above the chin might not flatter this face shape — it might look better on someone with a more oval face instead. It depends on a lot of factors like the length and texture of your hair — that’s why consulting an expert is always recommended.
How do you make straight hair less boring?
You can try experimenting with new hairstyles. Add clips and barrettes to the equation. Change your middle part to a side part. Or, hey, something a little more extreme — cut your hair! Get a bob — or even bangs! There’s so much you can do with straight hair. Just talk to your hairstylist, and see which cut will suit your face shape and hair type best.
Is short hair or long hair better for stick-straight hair?
Both are fine options for stick-straight hair, but medium-length haircuts are ideal for this hair type — going too short can cause your hair to stick out from everywhere, and look choppy. If your hair is fine or thin, don’t go too long either. It can make your hair look limp.
How can I get straight hair to hold a curl?
First — wait for two or three days following a wash before attempting to curl your hair. A very smooth and seamless texture doesn’t hold a curl well. You might want to prime your hair with a curl-inducing or volumising mousse before starting. Make sure you’re using a curling iron with a small rod, and not brushing out the curls. Conclude with a hairspray to keep the curls intact.
And that’s it. Which hairstyle are you opting for?
