There are few women that have looked as stylish and as effortless as Jane Birkin. Case in point: her signature hairstyle. Loose waves, sexy long bangs, and chunky layers that hit just at the chin. It’s an easy-going look, but it also feels a little tough. It’s a little shaggy, a little mod, and a lot sexy. Click the style notes for tips on what to tell you stylist and how to style it at home. –– Laura Martin

Step: Ask your stylist for a cut with face framing layers, cut at a low elevation, and and thick bangs with piecey ends.

Step: Before drying, spray roots with wave mist and rub a little healing oil into ends. Dry with your fingers for a polished but lightly tousled finish.

Step: Pull a dab of hair creme through ends for satiny separation.
