These beautiful cuts grow into stunning styles, so you can skip your next salon visit worry-free! Here are four celeb-inspired haircuts that’ll look gorgeous now and later.
Try a Tousled Shag
Your face is square if: The width of your forehead from temple to temple is equal to the width of your jawline from ear to ear
“The rounded curves of a layered curly crop instantly soften the harsh angles of a square jawline,” says celebrity hairstylist Cheryl Bergamy.
What to ask for: A cheek-skimming bob with side swept bangs and graduated choppy layers throughout.
Cut-Prolonging Tip: Use a 1½ inch curling iron to create soft curls that help “shorten” grown-out locks without overwhelming the face.
Go For a Layered Lob
Your face is a heart if: The width of your forehead from temple to temple is longer than the width of your jawline from ear to ear.
“Hair that swings above shoulders helps ‘fill in’ an angular chin to balance a heart-shaped face,” says Bergamy.
What to ask for: A long bob that sits right above shoulders with long, blended layers throughout.
Cut-Prolonging Tip: Apply a deep-conditioning hair mask like Pantene Miracle Rescue Deep Conditioning Treatment (Buy at Walmart $6.97) once a week. The treatment helps nourish hair to reduce the split ends that become more noticeable as it grows in, while imparting long-lasting shine.
Choose a Cheeky Chop
Your face is long if: The length from your hairline to your chin divided by 3 is shorter than the length from the tip of your nose to the bottom of your chin.
“An ear-length crop with wispy layers and full fringe directs the eye up and out for optical width that counteracts a longer face,” says Bergamy.
What to ask for: A crop that rests just above the brows in front and below the neck’s nape in back with graduating layers and brow-skimming bangs.
Cut-Prolonging Tip: Tucking hair behind ears or pinning sides back masks growth.
Pick a Sleek Slant
Your face is round if: The length from your hairline to your chin divided by 3 is longer than the length from the tip of your nose to the bottom of your chin.
The angular cut contours cheeks to slim the fuller look of a round face.
What to ask for: A chin-length bob that’s shorter on one side with side bangs and shaggy, razor-cut layers throughout.
Cut-Prolonging Tip: Swap the part to the other side of the face as hair grows. This helps keep the style looking fresh for at least another month like the other celeb-inspired haircuts on this list.
