The Hottest Cuts Volume VII

    Jennifer Connelly 
To get this long version of the shag, "ask your stylist to layer the front of your hair so the shortest pieces hit at the jaw," says Paul. "Then, he should thin out the ends of the back to break up the line and give it a slight rock-and-roll edge."

Rachel Bilson 
"It's almost universally flattering," says hairstylist Garren of the Garren New York salon of Bilson's haircut. "Tell your stylist to give you long bangs and layers starting at your chin to almost your chest, and cut the ends in the back in a U-shape." Besides suiting all face shapes, this cut also works on both straight and wavy hair textures.

Jennifer Hudson 
It's rare to find a style that flatters all face shapes, but Jennifer has done it with this shag, says hairstylist Garren of the Garren New York salon. "Ask for a full, shaggy haircut, layered through the crown to add volume." Blow-dry hair with a round brush, then use a small flatiron to flip the ends out (just curve it up as you move over the ends). To prevent any frizz, dab a tiny bit of setting lotion on the tips. 

Ginnifer Goodwin 
We are very into Ginnifer's new long, layered cut—and the fact that it works for all hair types but the curliest. "Ask your stylist for a soft bob, layered from the cheekbones down, cut with scissors and a razor to soften the edges," says hairstylist Garren of the Garren New York salon. "The front should be slightly longer than the back so that, when it air dries, it has a somewhat uneven look. And the bangs should be angled so they fall over one eye." To get Ginnifer's easy style, comb a volumizing spray through wet hair and push it behind your ears. Let it dry naturally, then tousle your hair with your hands. 

Katie Holmes 
This jaw-length bob is timeless. To get it, "ask that it be slightly shorter in the back with very subtle layering throughout," says McMillan. "It should also have bangs that are completely blunt and straight and cut just above the eyebrow." Don't attempt this cut if your hair is not straight; "ask for longer, side-swept bangs" if your face is slightly round.

Diane Kruger 
If you like the 1920s flapper style, ask for a cut "that falls just below the chin and is the same length all the way around," says LeCompte. "It should have very subtle, long layers in back and be symmetrical when you part it in the middle. Kruger's hair is styled in marcel waves, but the cut looks just as good straight or tousled.

Leslie Bibb 
We love a style that doesn't require thick hair. This soft scissor-and-razor-cut bob is ideal for fine hair. Hairstylist Chris McMillan of Chris McMillan, The Salon in Beverly Hills (who gave Bibb this cut) says he was going for "a Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface look." "Ask for long, blunt bangs that get slightly longer at the edges, which give it that piecey effect," he says. "A little dry shampoo in the bangs thickens the hair." Hair Styling Kit (pink tattoo)
