Most of the time, a loose hair style describes a style that is unconstrained. Some hair styles are achieved by pinning up and attaching a clasp, but in most instances, loose hair styles would not be confined in any way. The length of the hair can be shoulder length or longer, and either curled or straight.
Bangs are sometimes worn with loose hair styles. Bangs are fringes of hair cut across the forehead, usually ending just above the eyes. Hairstyles with bangs are often popular with people who have high foreheads, as they break up the distance between eyebrow and hairline. Bangs are sometimes cut in loose layers, so they feather as they blend into the hair at the sides of the face.
Some loose hair styles are meant to look bohemian. The bohemian look can be either straight or wavy, but in most cases, this hairstyle is worn very long. In many ways, a bohemian hair style is a reflection of the hippie era of the 1960s.
Shag haircuts typically describe loose hair styles that are layered. Shorter layers on the top blend in with longer layers all the way down the length of the hair. Shag hair styles sometimes have as many as five or six layers, depending on the length of the hair. This loose style can be done in many different lengths, with or without bangs. Though a shag can be either straight or curled, if there are several layers, it is probably more suitable for curly hair.
Blunt cuts are loose hair styles that are recommended for people whose hair is thin or wispy. This is because having the ends of the hair cut straight across often makes the hair look thicker and healthier. Blunt cuts can be any length, but to achieve the best results in terms of making hair appear thicker, these cuts should probably be shoulder length.
Not all loose hair styles have to be worn hanging down. One popular example is a Victorian-inspired hairdo that involves putting hair up into a bun or twist. To achieve this look, hair should be pinned up loosely, allowing tendrils of hair to escape around the face and neck. This style is suitable for most any type of hair, as long as there is enough length to pin the hair up and secure it in place. This style works as either a formal or a casual style, depending on clothes and makeup.
