The New Wave

Rock this look with edgy, controlled waves or longer, looser curls for a more bohemian, earth-girl vibe. “The best part of having textured or curly hair is that you can change your style to suit your mood,” says Luz Zavala-Rose. “Embrace your waves and curls and don’t fight them. A diffuser and the right products are essential for styling curly hair. Once your locks are set, don’t disturb them with a comb or brush. Just shake your hair for a quick refresh!”

The Modern Shag

“Our clients are loving the new shag. Whether lengths are kept long or short, layers encourage exciting movement of hair,” says Salvatore Minardi. “Chipping and notching the interior gives it shape with a casual, messy appearance. This can be achieved on curly, wavy or straight hair with the proper use of scissors, rather than a razor. Depending on hair type, I tweak the shag with appropriate products like strong mousse or pomade for maximum lift, hold and shine.”

The Asymmetrical Bob

Make a chic statement this autumn with an adorable cut that will turn heads. “My asymmetrical bob style has internal texture throughout, with a stronger front that gives more substance and definition to the overall look,” says Yoav Tauber, nephew of international hair guru José Eber of Beverly Hills. “This style isn’t flat ironed, just blown straight. The haircut has invisible layering with texturized ends. It actually has a lot of movement and can be worn straight, wavy, curly or with the ends flipped out.”
