#3: Shoulder Length Haircut with Flicked Ends
If your hair’s length is medium to long, consider spicing up your cut with flicked, choppy ends. Layers define and add interest to all hair styles, but flicked ends work especially well if you like the quick rough blow-dry styling. Thick hair types can hold flicked out layers best.
