As the go-to haircut for many models and celebrities, the long layer has well deserved popularity. Overall length with shorter pieces framing the face gives softness and movement to long hair without thinning ends. Minimal layering makes updos a snap and leaves soft tendrils around the face when hair is pulled back. Emma Stone looks stunning in the popular shape and takes advantage of its versatility, wearing a multitude of up and down styles. The looks shown here can be achieved in a few minutes without washing the hair, which is important since over-shampooing removes the hair’s natural oil, leaving ends dry and fragile. Restyling instead will help you feel fresh without stressing your cuticles. Read on to learn the tricks. –– Laura Martin
