This Youthful Haircut Will Instantly Take Years Off Your Face


Gone are the blunt bobs that once made their way across every Hollywood head. The new age-defying strand style? An asymmetrical cut. “The uneven length, whether from side to side or front to back, is fresh, youthful and easy to style,” says hairstylist Gregory Patterson, who’s worked with Meryl Streep and Julianne Moore. Plus, the slanted look tricks the eye into seeing thicker hair while “contouring” the face to lift eyes and slim cheeks! Here, three ways you can wow in slightly askew style!

Casual Chic Crop

Ask your stylist for: An asymmetrical, jaw-skimming cut with long, side-swept bangs and blended layers throughout like Melora Hardin.

Elegant Pixie

Ask your stylist for: A pixie that’s 1” shorter on one side with side-swept bangs and blunt, stacked layers like  Gabrielle Union. 

Graceful Glam Bob

Ask your stylist for: A beveled bob that’s longer in front and shorter in the back with side-swooping bangs and wispy, graduated layers like Sharon Osbourne.
