Longer short cuts are all the rage in Hollywood right now! We spoke to Brian Meehan, owner of the Wayne Thomas Salon in NYC, for his take on some star-powered examples.
Jessica Alba is a wave rider with a "long" short haircut
"The rage now is shoulder-length bobs, which you can do a lot with," the pro says - just look at Jessica Alba's long, wavy bob. Her hair's texture helps keep the style looking natural, while texturizing the ends creates lift. Brunette locks are center-parted, which Meehan says is hard to pull off-only try it if you have a pefect profile.
To do: Work in a little serum, then blow-out with a large round brush. Leaving the top smooth, use a vertically held curling iron to create barrel curls, hen shake out and let it fall loose.
