Reader Q&A: "I Want To Cut My Long Hair. Which Styles Are Popular Now?"
Posted 01/23/12 at 02:00PM by Audrey Fine
We've been getting a lot of "ready for a change" hair-related questions lately, like this one from Mandy in Chicago: "My hair is long -- to the middle of my back -- and I'm ready to make a change. Last year was all about the pixie haircut. Which styles are popular now?" We checked in with Dueñas to see what he recommends.
Dueñas: You are right about the pixie cut being hot last year, but now we have moved on! Cuts that fall just past the shoulders -- as well as slightly above -- are very in at the moment. A piece-y look is a must this season, and feathery ends are in. If you are looking for a change from long hair, add some more layers and a heavy fringe, which is a perfect way to experience a dramatic change without losing your length.
