Celeb Style: Long Hair Makeovers for Fall – No Cutting Required
Five no-cut, celeb-inspired new looks for long hair
-Lois Joy Johnson
The celebs may be snipping away (ahem … Posh, Rihanna and Katie Holmes) , but a short crop is not in my future. A major haircut (anything shorter than below the collarbone) makes me feel so-not-sexy. From the manes reigning around every mall, I’d say I’m not alone. There are just so many times you can say, “it’ll grow out, right?” Long hair truly is still going to be your best bet for low-maintenance and versatility. Snip ends just enough to trim splits and keep the shape polished. This fall try these 5 scissor-free hair updates.
1. FAKE A BOB
Don’t nip, just tuck to create a short look. First prep hair with a shine and body gel-cream like Fekkai Coiff Control Ironless Straightening Balm ($25, sephora.com) before doing your usual blowout. Use hot rollers next if you want to add subtle texture. Tuck the ends under in sections and secure them with bobby pins like Rosario Dawson’s fake-out at the Seven Pounds premiere (pictured above), or do a Michelle Obama shortie tuck-up like her stylist Johnny Wright often does. Just secure the ends loosely with an elastic and pin under to hide the tail.
