This Is the New "It" Haircut You'll Want to Ask Your Stylist For


Stylist to the stars Chris McMillan shares his favorite new look. (Hurray! It’s a tiny bit undone.) "After seasons of blunt cuts, I'm happy to see the return of a modern-day shag. It’s like women can’t grow out their structured bobs fast enough," he says. "A little length and some loose layers soften your features and add natural volume, making you appear years younger. I’m all about creating less of a manufactured haircut and more of a lived-in look."

McMillan recommends going for a mid-length style that skims the clavicle. Have straight hair? Ask your stylist to cut feathered pieces around the face and long tiers throughout the length to add texture. "I like to think of these as 'noncommittal layers'," he says. "If your hair is curly, get fewer layers (too many will cause pouf) that start at your chin and angle down."
