Long gone are the days of flowy hair with wispy, grown-out ends. The latest look is a very square shape that's blunt at the bottom. "It's a dense cut that will make fine hair appear thicker," says Eva Scrivo, a top stylist in NYC and author of Eva Scrivo on Beauty.
Request a combo of square and concave layers to keep more weight in the ends.
Wear It Sleek
Apply a straightening cream—Nexxus ProMend Split End Binding Straightening Lotion is a good one—on damp hair starting 2 inches from the scalp. Blow-dry in small sections with a natural bristle brush. Add extra definition by rubbing a dime-size amount of water-based matte styling paste, like Redken Rewind 06, $18.50, on the bottom half of strands.
