The 10 hottest haircuts now
Beyoncé's major lengths
Awesome because it's perfect for a wash-and-go-kinda girl. Bonus: There's plenty of length for to play, too. The secret to this cut is keeping ends healthy. Make sure you stock up on a deep conditioner and apply to ends at least once a week.
Ask your stylist for: Well, first you have to grow, grow, grow. But once you like the length, ask for a dusting straight across to ditch splits and dead ends. Get a gloss after your trim, too. You'll pump up shine so strands look healthy, not straggly.
Kate's chin-length layers
Awesome because it's a longer 'do complimented by chin-length layers. Supermodel Kate Bock rocks this cut. Face-grazing pieces are majorly sexy, but they're long enough to tuck into a ponytail at the gym.
Ask your stylist for: Side-swept layers that start at your cheekbone. Keep them subtle, not chunky, to preserve a chic softness. If your hair is curly, make sure you get it cut curly and then touched up once it's straight to prevent renegade corkscrews.
Lydia's downtown 'do
Awesome because it's gorgeous, understated, relaxed and undeniably cool. Actress Lydia Hearst's brushed-out waves and subtle layers help add movement to thick hair without looking overdone.
Ask your stylist for: Long layers that start half way between your chin and clavicle and ends trimmed at slightly different angles. You'll add shape without any drastic measures.
Kerry's shaggy bangs
Awesome because they're bangs without bluntness. Kerry Washington's delicate features still stand out under her shaggy fringe. Plus, they're way easier to grow out.
Ask your stylist for: Straight across, textured bangs. You should see the stylist making small angled cuts instead of horizontal chops—otherwise your bangs will be more flat that fab.
Victoria's extra-long bob
Awesome because it looks sleek and pulled together with minimal effort. Need we say more? Just keep a flatiron on hand to keep your style polished to the max.
Ask your stylist for: A collarbone-length bob with long layers, plus A-line if you like it a little angled. Make sure you decide where beforehand you want to wear your part because switching it up can make this structured cut look uneven.
Rita's curly Qs
Awesome because this is the ultimate scrunch-and-go style. If you dig your natural curl patterns, this cut is easy to handle. Just wash, apply curl cream and let it air dry.
Ask your stylist for: Layers! Getting a blunt cut with curls can lead to a triangle-top (eek!) Before you head to the salon, style your hair the way you normally do, then ask for a dry cut since curly 'dos are way different when wet.
Julianne's shoulder grazer
Awesome because you can wash, comb and go. SELF's March cover girl, Julianne Hough, kills it in this razor bob that looks best a little piecey and undone.
Ask your stylist for: A side-swept razor-cut bob. The razor keeps ends uneven (a good thing) and helps thin out dense hair so it's easier to manage.
Michelle's modern pixie
Awesome because it's part sweet, part chic and all-around awesome. The key to this cut is that it's long enough to frame the face but not so long that it takes an hour to style every day. (Bed head is a plus, people).
Ask your stylist for: A pixie that grazes ears and brows with layers. You want to keep this more shaggy than structured, so it takes less effort to maintain.
Miley's rocker crop
Awesome because it's so bold. You need to have some major style chops to pull Miley Cyrus' latest style off. But if you go for it, this cut perfectly mixes easy styling (texture cream-gels are your BFF) and general radness.
Ask your stylist for: The Miley Cyrus. Trying to describe this cut any other way will land you with a faux-hawk, but you can say "shaped and undercut." Because hair can grow around half an inch per month, you'll need to get touch ups every four to six weeks to keep short sides from looking overgrown. Totally worth it for this badass look!
Rosie's swinging layers
Awesome because it has that just-blow-dried bounce factor. The lengthy layers of this 'do are perfect for it; keep a few rollers on-hand, and you can get this shampoo-commercial look every day.
Ask your stylist for: "Extended layers all over." Make sure they start a few inches below your chin and extend down to around your chest.
