Amanda Seyfried long blonde locks reminded us of the golden days of tinsel town –– but not any more. The star of Ted 2 and Lovelace went to similarly polar opposites for her new look, eschewing timeless long flowing, feminine waves for a trendy shoulder-grazing lob. Lightly layered and bang-less, the shape feels effortless and slouchy. Read on for steps to achieving this chic, easy style.

Step: Ask your stylist for a shoulder length cut with an A-line shape and layering. Slightly shorter length in back will push locks forward to frame the face and help ends turn under.

Step: Keep parting off of center; a perfectly central part will split your face in two; instead, move slightly to one side for soft, beautifying asymmetry.

Step: Style with a handful of cream whip and a nickel of styling creme. Dry with a paddle brush, smoothing out the surface and flipping ends under. Finish with dry shampoo to create a tousled, textured finish.
