Since we’re only a few days away from 2016, it’s time to start thinking about ways to change up your beauty look. Why? Because every great year starts with a new you!
To get you in the spirit of things, we’ve enlisted the help of international hairstylist and owner of Raw Hair Salon in Surry Hills, Anthony Nader, to give us an insight into his favourite styles for every hair length. From short and textured to long and oh-so voluminous, get ready to be inspired.
Not sure about going the chop? The first thing to consider is your face shape, then use this magic measurement to help you decide on just how short you’re willing to go and browse through our gallery of perfectly cropped chops.
”Jenna’s chopped ends give the illusion of airiness and softness. The broken up shaggy texture keeps Jenna’s style looking cool and casual.” – Anthony Nader
SHORT – JESSICA ALBA
”If only I had a dollar for every client that sat in my chair and wanted Jessica’s shouldering bob. I’d be a very rich man! Her longer length is fun, and the longer, disheveled layers promote thickness which is perfect for hair strands on the finer side.” – Anthony Nader
SHORT – LARA BINGLE
”This is a bold style, perfect for any girl wanting to draw attention to her high cheekbones. It emphasise an elegant neck, and the longer length on top ensures this cut remains feminine for anyone brave enough to go for it.” – Anthony Nader
Not quite short and not quite long, medium length hair gets the best of both worlds. When you find yourself in this zone, you’ve got the goods to try out every look under the sun, including these holiday styles. Medium length hair – is there anything it can’t do?
”I love Ashley’s hair as it gives her a more grown up look and a little sexier than the longer length she had for so long. I especially love when she flips all that hair over to one side – instantly there’s a different, more fuller hair shape than the centre part.” – Anthony Nader
MEDIUM – ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO
”Alessandra can do no wrong in my hair books, and I love that her length is shorter and breaks the myth that longer hair is sexier. The bonus here is that all that extra volume Alessandra has now with the shorter length and layers. 10/10.” – Anthony Nader
MEDIUM – SIENNA MILLER
”This is what a short bob grown out looks. It’s such a great cut because it can be worn wavy or straight. If you are going for this look, arm yourself with a curling iron and dry shampoo to get enough volume.” – Anthony Nader
LONG – BELLA HADID
2016 might be the year you finally decide to grow your locks long, because with all this lust-worthy length, the possibilities are endless. Victoria’s secret status, right here…
”Move over Gigi! This look if perfect for the girl that has a longer length [in her] hair but doesn’t want to sacrifice the full chop.” – Anthony Nader
LONG – HAILEY BALDWIN
”Oh yes! The shaggy textured length is so cool right now – very free spirited and uncontrived. The overgrown texture gives it so much body. I call this the haircut you have when you don’t want a haircut.” – Anthony Nader
LONG – SELENA GOMEZ
Even though Selena has some help from hair extensions, it’s the long layers at the front that make this style so versatile. It also helps soften her square shape face, and be worn in a middle or side part. It’s a classic style you can’t go wrong with!” – Anthony Nader
