Lay­ered Crop

STYLE 3: CHIC FLIP

Cosmopolitan (India) - - BEAUTY -

The re­cent rise in short hair—dianna Agron’s shag, Scar­lett Jo­hans­son’s bob, Kangna Ra­naut’s 10-inch chop—has started a style rev­o­lu­tion. “Cropped hair hasn’t been this big since the early ’90s,” says Marco Santini, co-owner of Ion Stu­dio in NYC, who cre­ated these cuts. Be­yond look­ing sexy, the trend is ideal if you’re crav­ing a quick change or want to make a state­ment, says Sheenah Hankin, PH.D., author of Com­plete Con­fi­dence— a key rea­son we’ve been known to lop off our locks af­ter a big life event (like a break-up or job switch). “Hair is a sig­nalling de­vice, one of the first things peo­ple no­tice about us, and a ma­jor change in­di­cates a fresh start,” says Hankin. If you’re ready to make the cut, con­sider these three trendy op­tions.

If the idea of cut­ting off tonnes of hair freaks you out, a shoul­der-length look is ideal. This one ap­pears to be all one length, but it’s ac­tu­ally hid­ing lots of lay­ers...a sneaky way to add all over vol­ume. Add gel to damp hair (like Se­bas­tian Pro­fes­sional Volupt Spray, ₹ 1,300). Us­ing a round brush as you blow-dry, tug roots up­wards for vol­ume, then flick the brush out­ward at the ends so they flip. Last, wet fin­gers with hair spray, and push them an inch into your hair­line for this off-the-face ef­fect.
