Here we see Anne Hathaway sporting a style almost any girl can wear to look and feel good. Anne’s hair appears a touch fine, with gorgeous innate sheen. This modern, jaw length bob with soft and gentle layers promotes the illusion of extra thickness and volume and help to shows off the natural luster. Styled more disheveled than polished, the casual side bang brings attention to her piercing, sparkly eyes. The chocolate brown color plays into her shiny hair, adding texture, thickness, dimension.

A child star, Victoria Justice is all grown up! This is an archetypal long, heavily layered cut, hugely popular in the salon because it’s such a feminine, easy-to-wear hairstyle. Victoria has a desirable natural wave to her hair, and the lush layers and side-bangs play into this texture with bouncy soft movement that accentuates her strong cheekbones and pretty eyes. A rich dark brown with muted ribbons of highlights, the color adds luster and shine, depth and dimension.

Girls love to brush hair till it shines. And with the new zeitgeist for lived-in looks, disheveled textures, trendy tousle it is easy to forget the power of a straight styles to bring brilliance, radiance and glister. This lightly layered center-part is a fine example of the polish and class innate to well-kept, linear looks. Notice how the part is kept just off of center; unless your profile is perfectly symmetrical (unlikely!), do the same. Splitting the face right down the middle is usually too severe.

This elegantly styled mid-length is a great fit for Lucy Hale’s wide smile, pretty eyes, and delicate features. The face-framing asymmetry created when one side is tucked behind the ear while the other is allowed to fall forward is classic styling, and encourages ones eyes to drift across her beautiful visage. Use a curling iron to make tumbling waves, and style them so they graze sexily over shoulders.
