A well-cut short shape should be versatile, easy to style, and unique. Ginnifer Goodwin’s is the quintessential example. Whether she wears it sleek or tousled, textured or smooth, her classic shape always looks just right: delicate, feminine, and spunky. Her secret is pairing tapered edges with a textured interior. The clean silhouette contrasts the piecey top, and flirty side swept bangs, for a shape that’s pretty but tailored. Customized details give her classic shape a signature spin. Learn how to get your own customized crop in the style notes. __Laura Martin

When it comes to classic styles like the pixie cut, updating your look is all about the details. Back in the 90s and early 2000s, pixies had long pointed sideburns, short choppy bangs and a rounded shape with a flat front and height at the crown. Contemporary versions of the cut feature shorter, tapered sides and back, longer bangs and, and softer texture, with volume at the front hairline. Whether you are considering your first short cut or looking for subtle ways to adapt your existing shape these simple tips will make your style look au courant. –– Laura Martin
