Sent to us by Tim Bricker, owner of and master stylist at B&B Hair Color Studio, Princeton, New Jersey, this fun and intimate collage shows off three modern looks, one for the boys, two for the girls. We love the autumnal tone of the vintage yet contemporary bob; the insouciant dishevelment of the mid-length razor shag; and how the classic lines of a scissor over comb men’s cut is augmented with a cool, disconnected top. See some more images from this spread and get Tim’s own insights to creating these looks in the style notes.

If you’re looking for a new cut, a bit of British influence may be just the thing. Click the style notes to learn more. –– Laura Martin
