The other day, hairstylist Tommy Buckett sold me on the merits of a winter haircut. I wasn’t going to cut my hair too short or change the color. But, Buckett told me that a fresh cut would make my hair look better.
He’s biased as a hairdresser. But, as my hair was a little lighter and almost bouncing around my shoulders when I stood up from the swivel seat, I felt better. I also felt more put together than I did 45 mins prior, when I had walked in with a claw-clip bun. What’s not to love about a great haircut? Your hair will look its best and be ready for the holidays.

The shag, also known as the modernized wolf cut slash mullet, has been trendy since Fashion Week. Celebrity stylist Jenny Cho shows us a new version of the shag: a shoulder-length cut with layers that frame the face and a long bang that skims the eyelashes.
You may have tried a curtain bang, or maybe you let it grow out last year. Then consider the “modern bob”, which Yuki, owner and stylist at Gavert Atelier Salon calls a “modern bob”. It combines a soft fringe with a more pronounced cut.
One of the newest hairstyle trends out of London is what a freelance writer Claire Hubble introduces as “the bixie.” Fer Porro, a stylist from George Northwood salon, London, tells Hubble that the style is a mix of a bob, and a short pixie. The visual is similar to Torin Ashtun’s hairstyle: shorter on the top and slightly longer at the back.
Layers can be a great way to experiment with your hairstyle if you have long hair. Summer McKeen, an influencer, shows off her darker hair in a heavily-layered style. This gives the hair more movement and body.
