The Wob

The wavy bob of 2015 is going nowhere this year. The blunt style works particularly well on those with fine hair.

To create the perfect wave, use the tapered barrel in T3's fabulousВ Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling WandВ ($270).


Androgynous Pixie

This gender-neutralВ pixie is all about the feathered cut-no crazy styling required. It's perfect for those who want to remain style-conscious yet low-maintenance.В


Bowl Cut, Redux

A shaggyВ bob with heavy eye-grazing bangsВ looks particularly chic on naturally curly hair (more It girl, less TruffalaВ tree.) When you style, opt for a curl-enhancing product, such as Living Proof Curl Defining Styling CreamВ ($28).

Piecey Ends

If you tend to wear your hair straight, ask your stylist to fray the ends a bit with some thinning scissors, which makes the look a bit more breezy and current.

Style by applying a heat protectant, such as TresemmГ©'s Thermal Creations Heat Tamer SprayВ ($5) and straightening with GHD's Classic 1 Inch StylerВ ($149).

The Swag

It's your mom's '70s shag haircut made modern, and it can be seen on celebs from Taylor Swift to Emma Stone. The cutВ is all about curtainy bangs and layers with movement.

Here'sВ moreВ swag inspiration.В

Blunt Midi

This bouncy,В straight-acrossВ style is a great transition cut from ultra-long hair toВ something a little shorter and chicer. Just ask your stylist for a blunt cut that falls about two inches past the collar bone.В

Rough Cut

Choppy, layered, and a little frayed at the ends- it'sВ the cool-girl long hairstyle of the moment. The cutВ works best with naturally wavy hair and evokes edgy vibesВ with minimal styling.В


Natural Bohemian

Natural curls are the new boho waves. Just ask your stylist to thin out the ends a bit, part in the middle, and style withВ Leonor Greyl's Г‰clat Naturel Styling CreamВ ($46).

'70s Babe

This longer version of the swag is not only ultra-current, it's the best style for growing out your bangs. The piecey layers help disguise that awkward grow-out phase, especially if you wear it wavy.В
