1. Begin with bangs

Fringe or bangs can be a statement-making style update. Try a full fringe for a bold look that’s on trend. For a subtle approach, opt for a soft, thin veil of long fringe that can be styled as bangs or swept in with longer hair for a bang-free, off the face look. Both cuts will get great shine and control from Big Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel.

2. Just a trim

Going shorter always feels fresh and new, but it doesn’t take a big chop to make a difference. It’s surprising how taking off just a little bit of length can make a big difference in transforming your look.

3. Revisit a classic

The bob is a classic and universally flattering style that is easily customized to suit all face shapes. The timeless look takes on a fresh, modern edge when layers and texture are added for a spunky style that’s full of personality. Ask your stylist for a “shattered” bob with lots of texture for a cut that can easily be styled for casual, professional and formal settings.

4. Take it easy

In contrast to the clean lines of a classic bob, try a softer, laid back look with textured layers that almost seem to be lived-in or grown-out. There are several cutting techniques your stylist can use to create this easy-going appearance without actually growing out layers—just be sure to tell your stylist you want layers with soft edges for a modern feel. When styling at home, try using Total Results Rock It Texture Sea Salt Spray to get soft separation and movement.

5. Try a part

The fastest way to create an entirely new look without a scissor? A center part. When styling a down-the-middle center part, be sure to pump up the volume and create movement to keep the look current. Use Big Sexy Hair Spray and Play to get full-of-life look.

If you’re ready for something new, talk with your stylist about how one of these looks can be customized for you.
