Have you ever gotten a fantastic haircut, one you were so pleased with that at your next appointment you ask your stylist to do exactly the same thing, only to end up with a cut that while similar is definitely not the same? If you’ve experienced this—and most of us have—you may think your stylist has made a mistake or forgotten what he/she did previously, but the truth is more complicated. A haircut has a geometric foundation, but it also relies on creative detailing, growth patterns, and styling. Click the notes to learn more about the factors that create deviations in your haircut and why they shouldn’t make you lose faith in your stylist. –– Laura Martin  Click for StyleNotes →

As a gal who mostly had long hair all her life, I understand the notion of waking up too late and simply throwing your hair up into a mussy bun. Now that I have a bob haircut I have a harder time accomplishing this look. I beyond love my bob, but now it’s definitely harder to just throw my tendrils up and back. The good news is that it is still possible to rock a messy bun, or at least a great alternative of a half up messy topknot.  Just grab your refinish, pins, and hair ties and you’re good to go. Best part is that this look will take you less than five minutes to complete, so snooze away short-haired sisters!

You probably know that some haircuts flatter your face while others don’t pair well with your specific features, but what’s less obvious is why a certain cut works. The shape of your hair, like the shape of your clothing, creates a visual illusion. Your cut adds width or elongates, sharpens or softens. It can also draw attention to—or minimize—specific features, like your cheekbones. Click the notes to find out how your hair can give your bone structure a boost. –– Laura Martin
