The Ultimate Haircut: The New Bob

1. STRAIGHT TALK

Runway Inspiration: Giorgio Armani

"Beautiful, shiny hair shows off the architecture of the cut. I straightened the hair with an iron, but it still has volume."

Styling Secret: Kérastase Ciment Thermique, which defrizzes without weighing down hair. Put it on damp hair before blowdrying to "double the volume."

2. PONY EXPRESS

Runway Inspiration: Prada

"Layers add volume, but they have to be long enough so that you can do a side part or pull them back into a ponytail. You need a bang that reaches the cheekbones."

Styling Secret: Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray applied on the roots adds volume and stickiness, giving hair the strength to hold the style.

3. SWEPT AWAY

Runway Inspiration: Marc Jacobs

"This style takes a classic updo to the extreme — '40s Hollywood glam with an '80s twist. I love having the contrasting textures of slick and dry mixed together."

Styling Secret: Comb Matrix Biolage Sculpting Jelly through hair for a wet-looking sleekness, especially on the sides.

4. NEW WAVES

Runway Inspiration: Vivienne Westwood

"This is a beachy, tousled style. You want the hair to look a little dirty, but you don't ever want it to be greasy or sticky."

Styling Secret: When spritzed on damp hair, TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Root Boosting Spray adds texture when you blowdry.

5. WORKING CURLS

Runway Inspiration: Chanel

"For these frizzy, sexy curls, I used a Hot Tools 3/8-inch iron. Too many perfect blonde curls look like wedding hair."

Styling Secret: Keep the ends polished with L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Gloss Wax. If they get too frizzy, the hair doesn't look healthy anymore.
