Daniels recommends chin-length hair for its versatility and lack of face-dragging. Slick it back for a sophisticated style, straighten it for a trendy look, or add waves like Naomi Watts for a feminine look. This short cut suits fine hair. Thicker hair may look bulky at this length.

Oribe global content artist Mandee Tauber enjoys this easy wash-and-wear design. "The structure of this haircut does all the work with minimal styling," she says. You may air-dry it to avoid heat damage and still look wonderful.
