Try one of these cutting-edge cuts before everyone else.
Make your mane totally turn heads with a striking, of-the-moment shape. Here’s all you need to know about the dramatic styles, courtesy of tress expert Jet Rhys of her namesake California salons.
With step-cut sides, a wedge-shaped back and under panels that hug the head, this look is definitely a cut above the rest!
WORKS BEST FOR: Ruler-straight hair–it’s a must.
COP IT: Apply a nickel-sized dollop of styling crème and blow-dry hair with the nozzle pointed down, swinging your comb back and forth like a pendulum–this allows some fullness at the root area while keeping ends sleek. With graphic cuts like this, shine spray is key for that sleek-as-ice finish.
“I love this look––it’s refreshing and sexy!”
WORKS BEST FOR: Thick, wavy locks.
COP IT: Begin with freshly washed hair and apply a quarter-size amount of mousse (try: Bumble and Bumble curl conscious), then comb in a low part. Push the bang to form a slight S-wave, scrunching it in an upward direction. Air- or diffuse-dry, then give hair one last tousle with the fingers. Avoid using a brush, as it will interrupt the wave, cautions Rhys.
A-line Bob with Slanted Bangs
“This longer bob (aka ‘lob’) brings to mind Victoria Beckham’s ‘pob’.”
WORKS BEST FOR: Fine to medium textured, bone-straight hair.
COP IT: Split hair into two sections down the back, using a Denman brush to guide one side in toward the face. This creates a nice bevel on the ends, says Rhys; repeat on the other side. Next, blow-dry bangs back and forth (think: windshield wiper movement) to prevent puffiness. Finish with shine serum.
