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: Mid-length bobs.
In: Very short crops, or ultra long and layered tresses.
It's all about extremes right now, Labrecque says. Though, it's more important that the length fits the shape of your face, he says, so ask your stylist for his or her opinion before any dramatic snipping begins.
Try: Michelle Williams cropped cut.
Michelle Williams' cute crop is soft and feminine – the short version of beachy tresses.
