Bring out the daring diva in you with a mid-length razor cut hairstyle. This length is great for the gal who wants an edgy look that's not too short or too long. Razored tresses can fall a few inches below the jawline, graze the collarbone or shoulder. Whip that hair back and forth because it's time to bring on the edge.


This razor cut shag gives an edgy vibe. The strands may be shoulder length or shorter with layers on top and the sides. Use foam rollers on wet hair and blow dry with heat concentrated at the roots. Remove the rollers and work your fingers through the hair like a brush. Bring on the sexy and push up the roots to create more volume.

Heavily Layered

It's layers galore in this haircut. Strands are cut in different lengths throughout the hair. If you like volume, you can bring it out in this 'do. Apply mousse to damp hair and dry with a round brush. Squeeze pomade onto your fingertips and tousle the hair. It's edgy and voluminous all at the same time.


Give your bob an upgrade in spunk. This is no traditional bob with hair all the same length. The razor takes over and cuts the ends to create a choppy effect. Give this edgy bob a touch of girlish charm and slip on a feather or jeweled headband.

Shaggy Bob

You can get two hairstyles in one when you rock a shaggy bob. A bob is cut in the same length around the entire head. Once that is done, the razor does its magic and cuts strands from back to front at a slight angle. Bangs can be cut and worn to the side or covering the forehead. For more of an edge factor, try a smoky eye and lots of mascara.
