to try

Ready for a cut? Considering a new color? Pondering bangs? Before you make a change, consult our cheat sheet of what's in and what's out when it comes to summer hair. We asked New York City stylist and salon owner Paul Labrecque to weigh in on five hair elements: part position, color, length, bangs and layers.

Out: Blunt bangs that shield the forehead.

In: Side-swept bangs.

Wear them with a deep side part and let them fall across your forehead with a bit of texture. "Let them dangle in front of the eyes a bit so there's a sexiness to them," Labrecque says.

Try: Heidi Klum's light, airy bangs.

They look fantastic even when hair is pulled back.
