Hairstyle Ideas for Short Hair 

Short hair has seen a real surge in popularity over the past year or two so if you want on-trend short hair, now is the time to go for the chop.  We offer a wide range of short hairstyles for women including pixie crops, quiffs, texturised short cuts, asymmetric styles and short bobs.

Styling Ideas for Medium-Length Hair

We can create some lovely hairstyles for women with mid-length hair.  Mid-length bobbed hairstyles remain a versatile choice as this style can be worn straight, wavy, slicked back or with huge volume.  We can also add movement to your medium-length hair by adding layers for a more texturised look, create an asymmetric style or an edgy blunt style.

Hairstyles for Women with Long Hair 

The first step with long hair is to make sure it is in great condition. We would recommend that you have regular trims to keep split ends at bay. Adding layers to long hair can create volume and shape so why not ask our skilled stylists for their advice on how we can give your hair cut a new lease of life!

Modern Hairstyles

The team at McGills Hairdressing love to stay ahead of the curve and discover new hairstyles. One of the most popular modern hairstyle trends is the modern shag haircut. Today’s modern take on the shag haircut has all of the same volume and texture of the past, but is much more versatile. The modern shag haircut can work for pretty much all hair types.

Wavy, thick, and even curly textures are especially ideal for this style, since shaggy cuts add shape, but a few subtle tweaks in how its cut can make it a great option for almost anyone. Speak to your McGills expert about how the modern shag haircut can work for you.
