Always setting the trends, Amanda’s short cut with a rough texture shows her independent personality and love of individual style. Her dark base colour is highlighted all through with a cool, pale blonde and the front section is styled into a definite quiff producing flattering height on top. This easy-care style is great for keeping cool and for looking ultra-trendy!
This is a sharp asymmetric cut that creates attractive geometric shapes around Frankie’s face. The side parting on the shorter side is trimmed at the side to create an angle in the profile with precise side points before the ear cut to accentuate the eyes and cheekbones perfectly. Contrasting with the sharp angles, the overall silhouette is a fabulous smooth round shape that is styled forwards from the crown. The longer side sweeps down over the forehead and one eye, for a super-trendy look. This easy-care style is a great haircut for anyone with thick straight hair and natural volume!
Halle knows exactly what suits her sophisticated style and dainty facial features, and this evening version of her favourite pixie cut has just the right touch of contemporary chic. The extra height on top is very attractive and the tiny touch of fringe softens the forehead line. Notice how the soft, side-points are cut to accentuate Halle’s high cheekbones, making this apparently simple haircut into a really face-flattering choice!
This modern take on the classic basin-cut bob suits Devin really well. Her hair is naturally thick and glossy, which makes it perfect for a precision cut with razored tips to sculpt it into a smooth round silhouette. A thick, full fringe can overwhelm smaller faces but Devin’s large eyes and defined jaw are accentuated by this h2 shape. And the expertly graduated line around the face has cute razored tips to finish off a sleek look with just the right touch of softness!
Here’s another version of Maria’s edgy, twisty chin-length bob. The long layers have spiky textured ends to contrast with the soft and pretty golden blonde shades that really bring out the brown of her eyes. And those angular, bendy side twists add lots of volume and width at the sides in a look that’s really quite futuristic. It’s great for naturally curly hair and anyone who wants an easy way to add volume to fine hair, too!
Wonderful waves like this are suitable for taming naturally curly hair into a contemporary look and for giving fine-medium hair more volume. The bob is cut to finish just above the shoulders and then the twisty waves take up the length, so the hair falls prettily around the chin and neck. And just look how those flattering waves falling in the perfect position to draw attention to India’s brown eyes and flawless complexion!
This asymmetric cut with a side-swept fringe is great for balancing a well-defined jawline and chin. The deep parting allows the longer layers to be swept casually over the top to form a softly rounded shape around the head, balancing Chelsea’s slightly pointed chin. And the mixture of warm and cool blonde shades goes well with her pale skin tone and those lovely brown eyes!
One of the best ways of highlighting a glowing complexion and a young face is to frame it with a sharply razored haircut. The clever creative contrast between the geometric lines in Emma’s trendy hairstyle, and her soft and pretty face, complements her beauty look perfectly!
This lightly curled pixie cut accentuates Bria’s lovely face and beautiful brown eyes in a flattering, contemporary style. The side points are expertly cut to show the ears and emphasise the cheekbones. And the tousled top and short wispy fringe keep this short style soft and pretty.
This short bob looks thick and glossy, owing to expert cutting, highlighting and styling and it works well on medium- to fine-textured hair. The cut has long layers, with some shorter tresses cut around the face to soften the line. The smooth side-swept fringe is sleek creating an attractive contrast with the lightly defined waves that add interest and volume at the sides. The light brown shade matches well with Evangeline’s pale skin tones, and the lovely highlights at the sides pick out the colour flecks in her hazel eyes and add depth in this beautifully balanced cut. This short ombre hairstyle is great for oval, square, heart face shapes.
This is an excellent example of how much a haircut can flatter the face and the right colour for your individual skin tone can instantly lift and brighten. This medium bob creates a lovely curved frame around Abbe’s face with the sides gaining volume and adding width at eye level. This makes it a good style to balance out the length of your face shape if required. The ends curve in just below the chin, echoing the line of the jaw for a nice harmony of shape, too. The crown is lightly teased for attractive height and the off-the-forehead fringe has a smooth wave to soften the line beautifully!
Christina has a fabulous porcelain complexion with blue eyes and that marvellous auburn hair, so she always looks lovely! Here she’s showing a nice new take on the asymmetrical look, with a long bob cut which is curled at the ends in a timeless retro style from the ‘60’s. This style can be equally successful on thick, curly, fine and straight hair and for all ages, too. The side parting can be varied to suit different face shapes and there’s an attractive creative contrast between the smooth top and fringe and the lively bubbling curls lower down!
Don’t you just love these contemporary, loose defined twists! The edgy ‘cut-off’ waves are one of Maria’s signature looks and keep her in the forefront of hair fashion trends. And accentuating the fabulous movement in this style, the blend of medium golden blonde with lighter blonde shades is perfect! They add the impression of more depth and volume and to the hair, so this casual up-to-the-minute short haircut is also great for giving fine hair some extra oomph!
This is a super-cute way of styling a medium bob in lovely large waves finishing at the magic chin-length, that’s always so flattering. This is an easy-care style for anyone with thick, curly hair and has the asymmetrical profiles we all love! So from the parting, the hair is just swept over the head by hand and allowed to fall casually in gorgeous, golden- brown waves around the face and sides. Golden or copper highlights running through all hair colours look fabulous and a big trend for 2014!
Sometimes simple is the best way to highlight a nicely proportioned face and brightly coloured eyes. And this style is a great example of less is more. It’s a short bob, cut in long layers, with shaggily textured ends and dark lowlights to give it lots of contemporary bite. The styling is about as easy-care as you could possibly get and this lightly tousled casual look in gorgeous pale wheaty-blonde is a very face-flattering and trendy haircut! This short hair style is perfect for oval, heart, square face shapes.
This timeless chin-length bob is a classic style that suits most face shapes, because the position of the parting can be adjusted to create different face-balancing effect. Sofia has brought the style right up-to-date with a sombré colour technique, in pretty golden shades that highlight her dark eyes perfectly. Sombré is the 2nd generation ombré and more subtle. It very gently moves the colour intensity from darker at the top down to an almost imperceptibly lighter tone at the ends. Hair looks more natural and very trendy as you can see!
Perfect for a contemporary ‘undone’ look, this youthful style also suits women of all ages. The image is natural with some ‘cut-off’ defined waves adding volume at the sides and one side tucked carelessly behind one ear for a relaxed touch of asymmetry. The parting is slightly off-centre and lightly parted to show the forehead. Karlie’s shiny healthy hair frames her face and accentuates her eyes in an easy-care style that’s an excellent choice for fine hair!
Here’s another attractive version of the short haircut with a side parting and side-swept, asymmetrical fringe. This version has a shorter fringe that shows off Cindy’s forehead and suits women who want to add a little more length to their face shape. The mid-brown colour has very subtle coppery highlights that add depth and match with Cindy’s brown eyes beautifully. Subtle highlights look very natural and are great for making fine hair look thicker!
Anne’s great cut, with its asymmetrical, side-swept fringe and short side-points, really puts the focus on her deep brown eyes. Everyone agrees she looks much younger and more lively with this flattering short haircut. She rings the changes by swapping between blonde, a huge trend for 2014, and her natural deep brown hair. And with short hair it’s easy to swap colours to keep up with every new trend!
Jane has never lost the excellent sense of style that she had throughout her successful acting career. And this style suits her very well, with a softly side-swept fringe that covers any inconvenient forehead lines and is gently graduated down at the temples. This creates the perfect frame for her lovely eyes. The colour technique keeps her look totally contemporary with a subtle harmony of neutral blonde tones and warm light brown!

Fresh and simple-looking, this look actually relies on some very clever hair coloring techniques to produce just the right shade of edgy ‘urban platinum’ blonde! Balancing out the artificiality of the color, Pixie is wearing her hair in a simple, layered chin-length bob. And it looks great! The center-part gives way to a casual fringe separated to leave the forehead clear and cool in hot temperatures. The slight wavy movement creates interest at the sides and the ends of the hair are heavily textured for even more ‘urban chic’!
This is such a beautiful shade of palest blonde with a clever touch of gold at the roots to make it slightly softer and more natural. This is the perfect style for anyone who loves short styles and is ready for a little change in the colour or shape. Shown here Kellie is wearing her razor cut hair in a perfectly-groomed, formal red carpet look, but with this versatile cut you can also just fluff it up with your fingers for a trendy tousled vibe. The pretty, wispy fringe has textured tips so it adorns Kellie’s forehead, rather than ‘covering’ it up. And underneath, all the focus is kept on the eyes with the feathery textured hair at the temples styled forwards to frame the upper part of the face perfectly!
Helen has been at the peak of her acting career for many years and shows no signs of slowing down. And many women follow her hairstyle choices each season, because she has a great eye for a flattering cut and colour. This short cut looks beautifully soft owing to the long, wispy fringe with tapered tips and the subtle shade of pale blonde. Always at the forefront of new trends, Helen’s style shows a perfect sombré technique moving the colour down from palest blonde to a warm medium-blonde shade at the ends. This is a great style for fine hair and the perfect way to add subtle colour to white or grey hair for a very soft and contemporary look!
This, now iconic, photo of British actress, Dame Helen Mirren, is an excellent example of how mature ladies can still be trendy and playful with their hairstyles. The shape and layered cut suits fine hair as it makes it easier to fluff it up when you want to add volume and vary your look. The lightly side-swept fringe has textured tips and is styled to show the forehead underneath in a piecey finish. And the cute pink ‘colour-wash’ doesn’t look like a silly novelty colour, but harmonises beautifully with Helen’s silver-white hair and adds warmth to her pale skin tone. Complemented by pink blusher and lipstick, this is a very pretty and feminine look for women of all ages!
Miley has worked hard to shrug off her Hannah Montana child actor image and launch herself as an international pop singer. And a big part of that transition was choosing a hip new look that marked her out as a contemporary style icon. This is just one of the many styles her versatile short cut lends itself to, with an edgy undercut on one side tinted the same brown as her eyebrows. From the deep side-parting, Miley hair is simply brushed over the top to create a touch of flattering height on top. And for maximum impact, the cool bleached-blonde on her longer layers marks her out as an edgy, urban fashionista! This short hair style is perfect for oval, square, heart face shapes.
You can’t beat a beautifully executed precision cut to create a futuristic ‘cool, calm and collected’ image. The bob has been expertly cut into a geometric look but softened by the pretty colour and the ‘wedged’ layers at the sides. These create a curving-in shape about an inch from the ends to flatter the lips and chin. The subtly mixed shades of copper-brown flatter Katherine’s attractive grey eyes with amber flecks. And the delicate colour blossoms into lighter rose-gold and pale copper highlights further down showing why sombré looks so fresh and exquisite!
This is a wonderful example of the way that just a few balayage highlights can make dark hair really come alive! The super-chic asymmetric cut features a deep side part, with the long layers styled up and across the head in a smooth line that includes bangs that skim the eyes. This gives natural volume and creates the attractive rounded shape. The balayage shade is carefully chosen from the natural tone range in Frankie’s dark brown hair, so it creates color-harmony whilst emphasizing the fabulous sweeping movement!
This young, casual cut also keeps the focus on Frankie’s beautiful brown eyes and trendy red lipstick. The asymmetrical bob is a timeless look which always creates a ‘modern’ vibe and shows an independent but feminine image. The short-side profile is expertly layered down into cute, sharp points that frame the eye and draw attention to the cheekbone. And the rest of the hair is trimmed into long, sleek layers producing a super, side-swept fringe that blends in seamlessly at the profile.
This simple short cut is given extra appeal by the forward movement from the crown which continues into the trendy long fringe. The style is asymmetrical with length of the layers graduated out from the shortest section around the crown. Beneath the blurred side-parting one side is tucked neatly behind the ear. This leaves a completely bare profile which shows off Megan’s pretty facial features and her nicely defined jawline. As this style isn’t cut short around the ears, it’s a versatile haircut that can be curled, waved and styled into several contemporary looks for busy – but stylish – women!
Here’s another of Sami’s lovely short cuts showing how to keep all the focus on the face to emphasise the eyes and create a youthful look. In this version, you can see how the short layers and side parting create more volume around the top of the head and show the attractive silky texture. The pretty side-swept fringe is broken to soften the line and add a little imperfection to contrast with her otherwise perfect face!
Halle is another excellent hair role model, who never puts a foot wrong. Her hair is razor cut in a geometric shape with heavily textured ends. Then it’s styled from a blurred side parting to give a flattering piecey fringe that allows glimpses of the forehead to soften the line. The crisp side points keep all eyes on Halle’s amazing cheekbones. This style is great for thick or coarse textured hair that needs firm control. And it’s one of those great makeover styles that always leaves the wearer looking younger!
With bright blue eyes like Brittany’s it’s a good policy to choose a simple style that keeps the focus on the face. This style combines the pale blonde that’s softer than the harsh, platinum-blonde and dark roots look, with some very subtle golden blonde lowlights. The effect adds more colour dimension to the hair and we love the unexpectedly golden roots along the side parting and at the sides! The cut is a medium bob with heavily textured ends to add an urban vibe and graduated up towards the face to emphasise the lips and Brittany’s pretty chin!
Here’s how to get control of your coarse thick hair and look sleek and smoothly styled whatever the occasion! Kate’s thick hair has been razored into a chin length bob with lots of the weight taken away from the sides, to create a lovely round shape that’s sculpted in for flat sides. The shorter top layers give lots of attractive natural volume at the crown and show off Kate’s healthy, shiny hair. This is a good way to balance out a face shape that has too much width at cheek level and draws attention down to the pretty wispy tips that accentuate the mouth and chin.
Doesn’t her hair look gorgeous in these fabulous twist-out curls! This haircut shows an expert cutting technique that has created an almost sculpted look and a totally asymmetrical shape. It’s fresh and flattering – adding amazing height and volume at the sides, but styled to place Nathalie’s pretty face right in the centre. The coppery-gold highlights add warmth and really accentuate the beautiful spiralling curls that have such fabulous depth and texture!
Following the trend for short, simple cuts this is the way to flatter your face and display your fine, silky hair to full advantage! The short bob has expertly-cut layers shaping it into a lovely graduated curve which ends at chin level in delicately textured tips. This fabulous beige blonde shade is the perfect complement for grey eyes. It’s one of the latest hair colours which add an almost metallic shimmer to fine hair and make the look very soft and appealing. And the good news is that this style looks great on women of all ages, too!
This is a great style for a long to short cut and colour makeover if you have thick hair! This sleek bob is a classic that is always in fashion and popular for its ease of styling, too. This cut has one of the latest neutral blonde shades, shot through with very fine lighter highlights and a touch of medium blonde around the roots. It’s a very chic and face-flattering choice!
Here’s a new look – it’s the same colour all over! We haven’t seen that for a long time, but Milla loves the short bob and knows that it’s one of the most versatile styles you can get. Milla’s thick hair is perfect for this easy-style haircut with an asymmetric touch and a casual contemporary vibe!
Thick, dark hair like Jamie’s looks great in these new bob styles. This cut cleverly emphasises the beauty of a Jamie’s eyes and bone structure, by setting it in a frame of h2 lines and spikey movement. The thickness of her hair creates natural volume on top and the defined strand covering the corner of her forehead, softens the geometric shape of her face. The hair silhouette is rounded and curved down the sides to balance out her h2 jaw. However, the line is broken up by the ultra-trendy, outward-pointing tips to produce a stunning contemporary look!
This asymmetric bob haircut is a super sleek and sophisticated look. It’s a breeze to style and will keep its beautifully cut shape all day long. The uneven lengths on each side add a nice touch of individuality and create a confident image. The warm, dark blonde colour has a pretty copper red highlight in a shorter layer around the face drawing attention to Giuliana’s enormous brown eyes. This is a great haircut to minimize width and make the face appear longer.
This lovely off-the-face style is perfect for showing your confidence and contemporary style. The hair is lightly layered to achieve lots of volume on top and allow the smooth sides to be tucked behind the ears to accentuate the profile. The trendy colour technique mixes light and dark, cool-blonde shades, which add movement and dimension to a style that really makes a stunning fashion statement.
We love the way dark hair can be given fresh life with some subtle golden highlights avoiding the harsh look of blonde highlights in brown hair. This medium-length bob has just a few long layers to create extra volume at the ends of the hair. The off-centre parting divides the asymmetric sides, with the longer side just covering one corner of the forehead. Most of the forehead is visible, making this a great choice for anyone with a low forehead who wants to add length to their face shape. And those loose, defined waves are great for adding volume in fine hair!
With those beautiful Bambi-eyes, Sami’s simple short cut is the perfect way to show them off. Her fine hair is trimmed into a layered short cut with long points in front of the ears to balance with the long fringe. The trendy fringe is combed down and slightly curved to the side in a piecey style that just hovers over the eyebrows. The end result is sophisticated simplicity which displays Sami’s silky soft hair and beautiful porcelain skin very naturally.
Here’s another great new look for fine or medium textured hair that creates a totally fresh triangular shape around the head and neck. The lovely wispy fringe is very soft and the long length keeps it trendy, as it focusses attention on Katharine’s clear brown eyes. The sides have a few long layers with a fabulous choppy texture at the ends added by heavily textured tips. The sombré colour is beautifully applied with pale copper and pale golden blonde highlights added for a subtle light-reflecting effect that adds depth and texture to the broken wave movement. This short hair style is great for fine hair.
Julianne Hough always shows the way with her highly contemporary haircuts that can be styled in a variety of different face flattering ways. This choppy bob has heavily textured tips and a very modern look emphasised by the urban chic dark brown roots. In addition, the platinum-blonde shade gains lots of depth and dimension from the perfectly placed dark-blonde lowlights. The choppy bob is another great style for fine to medium-textured hair that is a dream to style and always looks new and trendy!
Here’s another fabulous style for fine hair, that’s simple to ‘wash and go’ and no bad hair days! The deep side parting creates an attractive asymmetry, which we can’t get enough of because it can be adjusted to fit and flatter every face shape, and some clever colour patterns. The dark roots are lightened to an edgy pale blonde and then trendy copper highlights are added. This accentuates the defined strands of hair over the head and sides in a completely new way!
Perfect for looking up-to-date on any occasion, this flattering short bob is also very simple to wash and style. The hair is razor cut in layers ending at the chin and has edgy dark roots under a pale, neutral blonde. The layers create a fabulous asymmetric silhouette on the longer side and tucked carelessly behind one ear, this look is casual contemporary chic at its best!
If you are tired of spending hours drying and styling your long hair, but not really keen on short hair take a look at this new cut! This bob could be the perfect new look for you. You keep the same styling around your head but add lots of natural volume and width by cutting off the longer length. The result is this style worn by Alyssa who looks confident, casual and in control. The style has a trendy centre-parting with an attractive wave accentuating the beautiful contours of Alyssa’s face. And with this lightly tousled finish you won’t need to be constantly checking the mirror!
This is one of our favourite new colour techniques shown here on a simple, but so flattering, bob cut! It’s so youthful and contemporary, without being difficult to achieve or too extreme for everyday wear! The parting is slightly off centre, which suits Katharine’s oval face shape well and the slightly asymmetric fringe is divided to show a little of her forehead to avoid a too-heavy full fringe. The layers are long with those lovely wispy, spiky tips that add an ultra-modern vibe and then sombré highlighted in harmonizing shades of dark blonde. The scrunched ends create extra volume in fine hair and the lighter ends give the visual illusion of thicker hair, too!
This is a lovely style, but not the best choice for Jennifer, I’m afraid, because the length and the tousled, beach-casual curls all combine to make her look older. The centre parting is fine on her oval-shaped face, but not with volume so high up on either side. Having a flat section on the top centre of your head, which moves out to create a square-shape around the forehead is definitely something to avoid! But apart from that, the tousled waves are nice enough – though rather outdated when the latest short cuts are so much more imaginative and could flatter Jennifer’s face a lot more!
This full-bodied look is the answer to how to control thick, naturally curly hair and look amazing every day! The bob has long layers at the front and sides gradually moving shorter to be shaped into the nape of the neck. The asymmetric side parting allows thick hair to create attractive natural volume on the top and sides. And the long waved fringe curves in at just the right places to frame Ciara’s eyes and draw attention to her lovely face. The gorgeous colour is one of the latest golden shades and suits her warm skin tone beautifully!
