THE MAKE-OVER
The BOB
This popular cut has as many famous fans as interpretations. Try it sleek, wavy or choppy.This version is slightly longer in front which keeps it from looking too boxy. Swingy layers flatter all face shapes. The shorter length can also plump up fine hair by taking away some weight.


 


The SHAG
"Layers with an edge".
Longer layers plus face-framing, angled bangs.
A shag works best on straight hair or loose waves. The layers can look poodle-y with curly hair.



 


The PIXIE
Long asymmetrical bangs and choppy layers throughout gives this pixie its chic look.

It's the most flattering with delicate facial features and wavy hair.





 

LONG HAIR plus BANGS
Who says bangs are only cute for kids? Bangs can make grown-ups look youthful, too, by concealing a broad forehead and fine lines.
A dramatic change without lopping off too much length. Bangs are suggested to be trimmed every three weeks. You can even do it yourself. 





LONG LAYERS
Every decade has its list of layered-hair beauties, and this cut is as sexy as ever. But the reason it endures may be more practical.


Long layers are versatile and require little fussing to look amazing.





Now, pick your favorite look, then show it to your hairstylist. I've got my personal fave..
