Not surprisingly, they had some iconic, leap-of-faith ideas up their sleeves. Ahead, 5 haircuts celebrity hairstylists think you should try in your lifetime—keep scrolling for the ultimate inspiration board in their own words.
“To me, this was the true, original lob look: blunt, blonde, and laser-straight. The blunt ends have the ability to thicken fine, chemically processed hair for a chic, collarbone-grazing haircut that’s a total head-turner.” — Brianna Colette, senior stylist at 901 Salon
“Seriously, fringe. Like retro awesomeness, classic ’70s rock and roll–inspired fringe. Plus, the versatility of a good fringe haircut makes a dirty hair day so much better. The trick is to not over-layer the hair around the face, which keeps the fringe as the main focal point. It’s a great cut for enhancing the eyes and cheekbones and is reminiscent of iconic stars like Jane Birkin, Kate Moss, and Brigitte Bardot.” — Tim Dueñas, master stylist at 901 Salon
“A quintessential, classically short style. This haircut is cropped in the back with a heavier, sweeping fringe in the front. Although it was made infamous by Twiggy, we’ve seen it re-created on Michelle Williams, Anne Hathaway, P!nk, and Rihanna. It’s so daring and liberating to chop it all off, but keeping it longer in the front makes for an effortless grow-out period.” — Brianna
“To be honest, this haircut is probably one of the most sought-after looks, and I think all women should have glamorous length at some point in their lifetime—a long, layered haircut with body and style. This look is the iconic vision of luscious. If you don’t have all the hair needed to pull this off, don’t fret. There are a lot of options—from clip-ins to halo extensions—which are amazing alternatives for lending an extra dose of volume to limper strands.” — Tim
“I like to call this The Rosie. It’s a medium-length haircut that’s great for thick, textured, and/or wavy hair. The addition of lots of layers helps encourage movement and will simultaneously lighten up heavy hair which might be easily weighed down otherwise. Then, barely there, long and sweeping fringe keeps it interesting.” — Brianna
