If a new season has you itching for a brand new haircut, but you aren’t sure which direction to go, there are plenty of options that will update your look and give you a fresher and more modern style. Inspired by chic shags and a super-simple bang trim that will instantly create a sleeker look, we asked professional hair stylists for one haircut that will give you an instant lift and pull you right into the modern age.
You don’t have to completely overhaul your look to update it and give yourself a fresher appearance. A strategic trim or a few highlights here and there may be all you need to make a big impact. The most important thing to keep in mind is that, no matter what your age, you needn’t follow old-school hair advice.
“Years ago magazines would tell women that once you hit a certain age, it’s time to chop and perm,” says Andrea Claire is a licensed hairstylist and makeup artist represented by Judy Inc. “Now that’s the one style that dates you. Run away from anyone who tells you to chop and perm unless your next goal is to call out: BINGO! The other ‘pass me my walker ‘ haircut is the extremely cropped, inverted bob aka ‘I want to speak to your manager’ haircut. The harsh lines paired with the too much hairspray that can protect your head from a fall off your high horse is a very dating haircut.”
So which cuts should you consider if your goal is a fresh update?
A Modern Shag
“One of my favourite, fresh, facelifting cuts is Kaley Cuoco’s hair from The Flight Attendant,” Claire says. “A modern shag that isn’t mullet-y with a curtain fringe and layers that you can adapt for any age and face shape. I prefer to point cut the layers which adds to the natural movement of one’s hair. One of the biggest mistakes women make as they age is keeping one length, long hair. It becomes a security blanket that one hides behind. Layers provide lift and shape, which translates to a modern, youthful feel.”
If you prefer a shorter style, Claire says a classic bob never goes out of fashion. “Slightly inverted and layered freshens up this classic look,” Claire says. “Both of these styles will suit any hair texture and are flexible from air drying to working them with heat tools. Keep it contemporary by choosing products with a flexible hold.”
One-length cuts and those that lack texture seem to be high on the list…
