Short Hair Style Guide | Uncover Your Best Layers

 

Add swing, style and movement without losing major length with these 20+ innovative styles, from our friends at Jean Claude Biguine salons.

“When layers are cut correctly, they give your style more movement and versatility. Done poorly they can make your hair look wispy, thin or even like you have two separate haircuts.” – Jet Rhys, Celeb Stylist

 

CHOPPY

“Choppy layers work great on fine hair in need of a boost or thick hair that could use some control,” says Rhys, owner of her namesake salon in Solana Beach, CA. “Sections are cut to boost fullness and can also add asymmetry and create allover texture and definition.”

Lots of side volume and jet black locks (a nod to the goth trend, alive again) are oh-so edgy.

This cut is tailor-made for girls with naturally wavy hair. Simply wash, scrunch and go!

Opt for asymmetry with layers that are longer on one side. In back, short vertical layers increase interest.

Give shoulder-length locks a shaggy vibe by pairing a full crown with pieced-out ends.

Best for thick hair with a hint of wave, this snip features stacked layers in back, tapered ends and curtain bangs.

“Round brushes are best for styling layers. They encourage movement and swing and add extra volume.” – Jet Rhys

Chin-length layers frame the face, and angled ends form a playful flip.

TEXTURED

“If you want lots of detail in your style, choose textured layers, which are achieved with a point-cutting technique,” says Rhys. “Cutting hair with the scissors positioned vertically, very light snips give locks a softer edge, which deeper ‘point cuts’ can add a heavier feeling throughout the hair.”

An elfin crop shows off pointy sideburns and choppy bangs that put the face into full focus.

Platinum blonde layers are infused with volume and texture for a modern Marilyn Monroe vibe.

This short bowl-inspired cut has pointy, temple-hugging sides and is snipped over the ears, leading to a v-shaped nape.

Go big or go home by having your thick hair cut into allover textured layers.

For a polished feel, try a pixie with long, peek-a-boo bangs, tapered sides and volume through the crown.

Asymmetry fringe not only accentuates the eyes but it also adds softness, which can help you look younger.

Here, straight, fine hair is razor-tapered all around, with light interior layers creating a bold bowl shape. Blow hair out to play up the cut’s linear lines and sharp edges.

Add interest to a thick, layered bob with a mix of honey and golden blonde highlights set against dark roots.

“Point cutting sone of my favorite layering techniques because it’s so versatile. It can add either light or heavy texture to the ends, depending on a client’s hair type.” – Jet Rhys

HEAVY

“This cutting technique can be achieved with scissors or a razor, and it has a visible blunt edge,” says Rhys. “Ask your stylist for a layered cut with a heavy outline shape. If you desire a clean, polished look, this one’s for you.”

Rock bold bangs and natural wave with heavy layers, then style hair with help from the fingers and a curl enhancer.

Perfect for smooth strands, you can wear hair slick and tucked back or go loose with extra volume.

LONG

“Adding long layers to your hair promotes texture, volume and shape,” says Rhys. “These layers are perfect for fine hair as they create the illusion of thickness. Here, scissoring starts at the mouth area and progresses to the chin for width.”

Balayage highlights will play up your cut when done by a color pro.

INTERNAL

“Internal layers create a soft line, making the overall style appear carefree,” says Rhys. “This fairly new technique gives hair a shattered line. Best done with scissors that slice through the ends, internal layers add movement and an extra dimension of texture for instant sass.”

Soft, face-framing layers on straight, user-dark hair are so sophisticated.

Be a bombshell in wavy, tousled layers that feature blonde-on-brown tones.

A pretty, feminine short ‘do features point-cutting and long bangs, a nod to the androgynous styles that are tearing up the runways.

Soft, easy waves are the name of the game here. Diffuse hair dry to enhance its bend.

Haircut Ideas For Curly Girls That Are On-Trend For Summer 2017

We’ve all heard the saying “blondes have more fun,” but we’re here to argue that it’s the curly-haired girls who actually have the best time. Sure, the frizz factor may make you want to scream in the middle of July, but there are tons of products to nip that humidity issue in the bud. We say, embrace your curls! In addition to these 10 hot Summer haircut trends, we’re offering eight different curly style options to inspire you. From the “newfro” to a curly midi to Rapunzel-status waves, here are the new styles that three hairstyling pros are psyched about this Summer.

by Wendy Gould

The “Newfro”
The Cut: “Newfro”
Celebrity Inspiration: Lupita Nyong’o

Description: “Lupita owns this non-afro that I’m calling the newfro,” says Jet of Jet Rhys Salon in Solana Beach, CA. “To get this look, ask for an updated version of the classic afro. What makes the newfro different is that the layers are left a little longer on the inside of the cut. The bottom outline edge is cut a little blunt and short, but the layers are longer on the inside, giving bouncy coils. Also, unlike the traditional afro that is picked out and often made frizzy, the newfro is all about springy curls with sass.” Jet says this style is suitable for all face shapes but noted that it can make a round face look rounder.

Style It: Less is more when it comes to shampooing this ‘do. Jet recommends “to only shampoo twice a week, because the hair needs the natural oil for it to embrace the curl. On freshly cleansed or wet hair, apply a gel that helps keep the structure to the curl.” Jet suggests Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel ($26) and says to wrap a two-inch section of gelled hair around a #2 pencil. Pull the pencil out and move on to the next piece of hair, repeating until you’re finished. Massage the roots once hair is completely dry to get a little extra volume, and you’re ready to go.

 

Face-Framing Fringe and Layers
The Cut: Face-Framing Fringe and Layers
Celebrity Inspiration: DeWanda Wise

Description: “DeWanda looks amazing — this look is perfect for Summer,” says Jet. “To get this cut, ask to keep layers long so naturally tighter curls won’t shrink up. For the bangs, stylists should use the point-cutting technique to create a wispy softness rather than blunt edges.”

Style It: “Apply a thickening lotion mixed with shine drops — like Ouidad’s Mongongo Oil ($38) — to help smooth out the bangs and root area,” explains Jet. “Then apply a mousse or gel — like MOP’s Lemongrass Volume Whip ($22) — to the midsections of the hair. Next, take three-inch sections of hair and loosely braid from the middle of the strands to the tips and allow them to air dry.” Once they’re completely dry, remove the braids and gently shake hair out with your fingers. “This look looks best on sweetheart-shape faces,” Jet adds.

 

Curly Midi
The Cut: Curly Midi
Celebrity Inspiration: Jenny Slate

Description: “This midi-haircut has virtually no layering. The only layering is kept on the very outside edges of the haircut, which gives it the straighter appearance and makes it superversatile,” says Jet. “What really defines this style is the sleekness at the root area, and the added pins at the face make the look fun and cute.” Also, this haircut is suitable for all face shapes.

Style It: “On damp hair, apply a curl-activating cream and rake with your fingers from the root area to the tips of hair,” explains Jet. “Part the hair down the center and fasten with a bobby pin on either side. Using a diffuser, blow-dry lightly while scrunching up the ends of the hair.” Jet says that the key to re-creating Slate’s style is to leave some dampness in the hair, which helps keeps the ends from frizzing. “Once dry, flip your head over and massage at the roots, and scrunch up the ends to release some bounce in the curl.”

Hair Show | Time To Shine

time to shine

Try these four steps to locks that reflect so much light, your friends will need shades.

By Jet Rhys

Nothing makes hair more beautiful than megawatt shine! It’s something we all all long for, but because of heat styling routines and brushing, our hair cuticle’s outer layers can ruffle, leaving it looking dull and brittle. Here’s how to get back your glow.

1 CHOOSE SPECIALTY PRODUCTS

Don’t: Use any shampoo or conditioner just because it smells pretty or is on sale.

Do: Find a great shampoo suited specifically for your hair type (for example: fine, curly, thick, coarse) with a matching conditioner.

Insider Tip:

When shampooing use the pads of your fingertips to massage the product onto the scalp; it will cleanse the rest of your hair as it rinses out. Apply a nickel-size amount of conditioner to mid shafts and ends (not the crown area). Rinse hair thoroughly, then blast it with a cold water tense to seal in the cuticle for maximum shine.

2 CONTRAST YOUR COLOR

Don’t: Ask for chunky blocks of color, which are outdated and never look natural.

Do: Enhance the radiance of your skin with hand-painted color detailing. This technique is perfect if you doh’t want too much color in one area. Blending a few different color ones will add more interesting contrast and depth.

Insider Tip:

For more drama, have your colorist up the amount of color around your face.

3 FREQUENT THE SALON

Don’t: Wait too long between trims. Your hair ages as it grows–the hair closet to the scalp is younger, while the ends are older.

Do: Have your hair trimmed every 5–7 weeks to maintain a healthy, vibrant look.

Insider Tip:

Even if hair is short, regular trims will prevent split ends to maintain smoothness and shine.

4 GIVE HAIR A REST

Don’t: Ignore the opportunity to boost your hair’s health during bedtime. Your hair is just like your skin–it repairs itself overnight.

Do: Invest in a masque and work it into the mid shafts and tips of hair. When you wake up, you’ll be amazed how healthy and shiny it is!

Insider Tip:

Sleep on a silk pillowcase instead of cotton one. Hair slides on silk; cotton catches on tangles.

Short Hair Style Guide | Festival Flair

  

Coachella inspired styles set the scene for your alfresco music season. Get ready to go boho!

Cali-based Coachella may be the most well-known music festival to date (who can resist celebrating amazing music alongside celebs like Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Leonardo DiCaprio and Lea Michelle?). But if you can’t make it to the show, no worries–festivals are scheduled country-wide into the early fall!

Whether you’re planning to attend a one-week or a three-day soirée, being prepared is key. It’s time to have fun and look cute doing it! Jet Rhys of Jet Rhys salon in Solana Beach, CA, gives us the lowdown on her fave festival hair looks just for you….

FLOWER POWER

1. Style short, straight or wavy hair with product suing your hands and avoiding a brush and dryer, which will make your style look pouffy.
2. Hair accessories are a must. Clip a flower or fun gemstone hairpins above your ears, or place a floral headband atop your crown.

GLITTER ROOTS

1. Apply gel on damp hair and comb it through.
2. Take glitter from an art store and sprinkle it on roots.
3. Apply hairspray and let dry.
4. Just remember to keep your hands away from your hair to maintain your sparkle!

CORNROWS

1. Carve out two semicircular sections of hair: one at the nape and one above that.
2. Mist both sections lightly with water (damp hair works best for control).
3. Start with the nape area. At the hairline, take three small sections and begin to braid, tucking each piece under the center strand.
4. Next, pick up small strands to add to the outside pieces as you go; fasten hair off at the nape.
5. Repeat the same for the other section.
6. Once both braids are completed at the nape, combine the two and continue with a regular (underhand) braid through the tips.

HALF-UP UNDONE BUN

1. Add volumizer, and then blow-dry with a round brush.
2. Bring hair to the crown and twist the length, starting at the base until it forms a bun. Fasten with bobby pins, leaving some pieces free.

HAIR WRAP

1. Style hair and lightly tease it all the way through the top.
2. Loosely gather hair in the back and work it into a bun, fastening with an elastic. Allow a few strands to go free on both sides.
3. Take a cute tribal scarf and fold it lengthwise. Position it over the forehead and tie it beneath the loose bun.

by Mara Santilli

Do you have combination hair

Most of us do, experts say. The bigger question is what type of combo. Once you discover that, find out here how to adjust your routine and bring out the healthy, silky, shiny hair you were always meant to have.

Damaged, dry top layer + oily underneath

Sweating heavily during HIIT or hot yoga causes an oil buildup on the underlayers of your hair, especially where moisture gathers at the nape of the neck. Add in lots of out- door fun plus any color treat- ments, and you’ll find that “your top layer is damaged because of its direct expo- sure to UV rays, heat styling, and bleaching,” says Jet Rhys, a hairstylist in San Diego.

→ YOUR CUSTOM PLAN:
To combat greasy underlayers, aim dry shampoo into the underside of the hair before your workout to soak up oil. Once that contains an anti-inflammatory like bisabolol will also soothe your scalp. To prevent damage: “Ask your colorist to add a strengthener to the color formulation she uses,” says Mika Rummo, a stylist at Salon AKS in New York City. And apply a frizz balm with UV filters before you head outside or reach for hot tools to tamp down flyaway and absorb the impart of any harsh elements.

Straight & flat in some spots + wavy or wiry in others

Sometimes hair seems to have a mind of its own–certain sections lie perfectly straight and flat, while others coil and frizz uncontrollably.

→ YOUR CUSTOM PLAN:
If you want to go all wavy, apply a curl cream to damp strands, scrunch, then air-dry. “Wrap any remaining straight pieces around a small 1/2- to 3/4-inch curling iron to give them body,” Rummo says. For smooth hair all over, blow-dry using two brushes: A round brush adds volume to flat areas, Rhys says, and a paddle brush controls the frizzy areas.

12 Fresh Haircuts and Colors To Try This Spring

by Krista Bennett DeMaio
 
It’s that time of year again. We’re finally shaking off the winter blahs and ready to hit the refresh button—and hair is the easiest place to start. There’s no quicker, faster way to get a spring pick-me-up than a trip to the salon. Whether you’re looking for a whole new ‘do, or just a subtle tweak, we’ve rounded up 12 super-flattering, skin-brightening ways to spring forward this season.

hidden_highlights

Hidden highlights

Also known as peek-a-boo highlights, hidden highlights are on the under-layer of hair, so when you move you get these beautiful flashes of color, says Rhys. They’re lower maintenance, too. Because they’re placed underneath the top layer of hair, you don’t see an obvious line of demarcation as they grow out.
Get it: Ask your colorist to place the highlights underneath your part. Rhys says the highlight trend tends to be more visible on hair with longer layers, which makes for more movement. Your colorist can adjust the shade and amount of highlights based on whether you want the effect to be natural or bold.

choppy_lob

The choppy lob

The lob—that is, the long bob—has been a staple for a few seasons now, and it’s still going strong. The latest take on the versatile collar-bone-length cut adds choppy layers throughout like Rose Byrne’s playful style. “The flicks and curves give this cut a modern twist,” says Jet Rhys, founder of the Jet Rhys Salon in San Diego. The not-too-short cropped cut works on most face shapes, and it’s especially flattering on your neckline, because it elongates the neck, says Rhys.
Get it: Ask your stylist for a lob with movement and swing, says Rhys. A razor cut is the best way to create it, she adds. Make sure to get a lesson on how to style your new cut. The layers lend themselves to a more tousled look, which you can get with a curling iron if you don’t have naturally wavy hair.

long_layered_cut

The shoulder-hugging long, layered cut

Jennifer Aniston proves long-ish hair is a good look for women over the age of 40. Her signature style—a mid-length cut with long layers—is a big trend this season. It’s not short, but not too long either, says Rhys. The layers (the shortest ones should hit below the jawline) ensure this length has movement and doesn’t just hang lifeless.
Get it: Request a length that sits on or just below the shoulder. Ask your stylist to point-cut the outer edge, a technique that involves snipping into the ends with scissors held vertically to create texture, softness, and swing, Rhys says.

bronde

Bronde

When you’re just not sure if you want to go light or dark, meet in the middle with bronde hair like Jennifer Lopez. Like the name suggests, this color is a perfect marriage between brunette and blonde tones. Besides getting the best of both worlds, the high contrast hair looks shinier and tends to fade less quickly than other hair hues, says Rhys.
Get it: Your stylist can tweak your bronde based on your skin tone. Warm skin tones can pull off amber or honey brondes, while cool complexions can try an ashier version.

strawberry

Strawberry

Soft, light reds (like Jessica Chastain’s strawberry blonde) are coming on strong this season, says Rhys. The golden red shades help warm up a pale complexion and boost light reflection.
Get it: Strawberry, rose gold, or ginger—have your colorist tweak the tone of your red to work with your complexion, says Rhys.

baby_blonde

Baby blonde

This blonde hue gets its name from the perfection that is a fair-haired child’s color: multi-tonal, usually a combination of dark blonde and light tones. It’s neither super light nor brassy—the color is buttery and honey-toned like Reese Witherspoon’s light locks.
Get it: Start with a medium-to-dark blonde base and ask your colorist to add fine, light highlights throughout with foils or balayage, a technique that involves hand-painting highlights throughout. Bonus: The grow out looks natural, so there’s less maintenance involved.

blunt_lob

The blunt lob

The one-length long bob with blunt cut ends is stunning whether styled pin-straight or with brushed waves (like Kelly Ripa wears it here), says Devin Toth, a stylist at SCK Salon in New York City. It’s especially good for someone who can handle a center part—the of-the-moment way to wear it. “You can always tuck one side behind your ear,” he says.
Get it: Ask for a one-length cut that hits between jaw and collarbone length without layers, graduation, or bangs, says Toth. The cut should be slightly shorter in the back. Style it straight and sleek or, ask your stylist to show you how to use a curling wand for a slight curve at the front hairline as in Ripa’s hair here.

soft_shag

The soft shag

The 70s-inspired shag is back with a few modern updates—this version is softer and more wearable than the edgy, choppy versions of the past. It works for all hair types and gives even straight strands instant texture. Bonus: “It completely opens up your face and draws attention to the jawline,” says Toth.
Get it: Tell your stylist that you want a collarbone-length shag with soft, blended layers throughout, paired with the very on-trend curtain bang—a middle-parted fringe like Mandy Moore wears here.

pixie_cut

The pixie cut

If you’re ready for a major chop, consider Michelle William’s sleek short cut. The deep side part makes this daring ‘do a bit more flattering, accentuating eyes and cheekbones.
Get it: Ask your stylist to keep the hair on top long, so you can swoop it over to one side. On the sides, hair should be short enough that you can’t tuck it behind your ear, but not as short as a men’s fade, which shows some skin, says Toth.

flaxen_blonde

Flaxen blonde

Bright blonde is also having a moment this season, says Corinne Adams, senior colorist at Serge Normant Salon in New York City. Cate Blanchett’s super-blonde strands are a prime example of this color trend. The shade tends to work best on those with fair skin and pink undertones.
Get it: Ask your colorist for a solid, flaxen blonde with little to no contrast, says Adams.

copper_red

Copper red

On the other end of the red spectrum is a rich, coppery red like Julianne Moore’s signature hue—a shade that makes fair skin glow, says Adams.
Get it: This red is ideal for natural redheads who want to go richer or light brunettes seeking to add warmth to their natural shade, says Adams.

bowl_cut

The bowl cut

Perhaps the edgiest of the bunch, the 90s-inspired geometric cut is for those wanting to make a bold statement—and for someone who can handle a heavy, blunt bang, like Mary J. Blige. The style is ideal on someone with a heart or oval face shape.
Get it: Ask your stylist for a bowl cut that is precise and clean. You can also request that the ends be cut a little rough and choppy, which gives the shape a softer, shaggier look.

How To Lily Collins’ Wave

“This vintage styles is all the rage,” says Jet Rhys of Jet Rhys salon, Solana Beach, CA. The pro gives us the lowdown on how to copy the look:


1. Add a quarter-sized dollop of gel through the side party, then comb hair away from the face.

2. Place a Kleenex (to prevent dents) and a long duckbill clip on the heavy side of the part to scoop the fringe away.

3. Blow-dry with a nozzle, pointing it down the hair shaft and using your fingers–this is what adds wispiness to the tips of hair.

4. Take two section of hair and place the mid section inside a wave crimper for 15 seconds, leaving the ends free. Repeat throughout the head. Try: Bed Head Wave Artist Ceramic Deep Waver (34.99, ulta.com)

5. Brush through, then apply Bumble and Bumble Semisumo wax ($29, bumbleandbumble.com) to keep waves together and add shine.

dr_oz-article3-nov16-web3 DOUBLE UP IN THE SHOWER

When you do wash your hair, revive the lather, rinse, repeat routine. “Shampooing twice gets your scalp and hair super clean and sets you up for a bouncier look on day two or three,” says Jet Rhys, a San Diego–based salon owner. If you have fine or normal hair, pass on “hydrating” or “repairing” shampoos (code words for rich conditioning formulas that could weigh your hair down). Curly, coarse, or dry? You need the moisturizing stuff. All types should use a light conditioner on the ends, says Rhys.











dr_oz-article4-nov16-web4 THREE WAYS TO REWORK SHORT HAIR

“A cropped cut can be challenging on day two–the whole head goes flat,” says Rhys. Three easy hacks to revive it:

PIN IT
Work with, not against, the flatness: Create a side or center part, and pin down face-framing sections on each side with a decorative or regular bobby pin.

SLICK IT
Mix a styling cream with wax or pomade in the palms of your hands, and run your hands through your hair. You’ll get shine and hold without stiffness, says Rhys.

TOUSLE IT
Spritz hair with a sea-salt or prep spray, and scrunch with hands. Or coat fingers with a dab of pomade, and muss just the ends of your hair (avoiding roots).

Boar-bristle brush: The natural bristles help carry oil down your hair, making ends look shinier and roots less greasy.

A shower cap: Wear one when you’re showering and not shampooing to block out frizz-inducing, style-dampening humidity from the steam.

Prep spray: “It’s like a watered-down leave-in conditioner that refreshes hair without making it frizzy,” says Rhys. The label also might say “primer spray.”

Sea-salt spray: Blowout losing its smooth? Play up the piecey separation with this texturizing spray.

Velcro rollers: Old-school, yes, but they really do lift flat roots and create bounce.

Bobby pins: It’s OK, and actually cool now, to leave them visible. Get layers off your face, stack a few in a pattern, or pin back oily bangs, says Rhys.

9 Revive Curls

Second-day spirals may lose their spring, especially if they get smooshed by your pillow. Spot-treat with a prep spray or a light leave-in conditioner. Then wrap individual curls around your finger and gently unravel, says Rhys. You’re back to boingy!















dr_oz-article12-nov16-web12 THIS SPRAY DOES IT ALL

Dry shampoo is your MVP on days you don’t wash. It soaks up oil and gives flat, fine hair a volume boosts, so it looks fresher. We’ll take it! Follow these four pro printers.

Get focused. Don’t spray it all over. Target particularly gunky spots-around your hairline, part, and crown. Lift up 2-inch sections of hair and spray roots, says Rhys.

Not so close. Spritz from 3 to 5 inches away from the scalp, says Webb. Otherwise, you’ll end up with big hard-to-blend globs.

Massage it. This is when the magic happens. “The more you rub it in with your fingertips, the better it absorbs oils,” says Toth. If you brush to blend, you’ll only brush it out.

Apply at night. If you sweat when you sleep, spritz it on you hairline and at the nape of the neck before bed, so you wake up with fresh hair, says Webb. (Then skip it in the morning.)
