Celeb Cuts to Get Now

Thinking about a getting a new age-defying ‘do? We asked Kyle Adam Rea, a stylist at Salon Collage in Etobicoke, Ontario, for what’s hot for fall.

FOR WOMEN

At the salon, ask for: Side bangs, as seen on 43 year-old Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Why? Hiding forehead wrinkles is just one fringe benefit. “Do you see that little angled gap in her bangs on the right side? At first glance, that adds to the illusion of length on her face. It’s like a mini-facelift,” says Rea.

How to maintain it: “The at-home trick here is to style your bangs as soon as you get out of the shower, while they are soaking wet. If you let them air-dry, even the least bit, your natural part will probably set in and you won’t be able to get them to do what you want until they are re-wet. Comb them flat against your forehead while drying them.”

 

FOR MEN

At the salon, ask for: Exaggerated length on top, as seen on 36 year-old Colin Farrell.

Why? “This a more conservative version of the exaggerated length worn on younger guys, but this cut has a slightly squared shape that isn’t over-the-top macho man. The extremely short tapered sides make the length on top seem much fuller to someone who might be thinning on top.”

How to maintain it: “It’s more about the cut and just some light paste into bone-dry hair to make the cut a bit more prominent.”
