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

Layered off-the-shoulder hair cuts, like Emma Stone’s, are some of the most popular styles, offering femininity and elegance within a beautifying shape. Occasionally, though, wearing hair long and flowing is a bit of a bore, so it’s important to have a variety of up-styles in your arsenal. Emma’s coiffed pompadour effect is a great example of melding current trends with an artful updo. Back in fashion, the pompadour turns back off the forehead in an poised roll, adding extra height, which elongates her cheekbones for a streamlined and striking, off-the-face look. The back can be gathered and styled in a few ways; a French twist or rolled up bun both work well. For our tips on making a style similar to Emma’s, click style notes.
