Neither a bob nor a shag, the coolest cut of the year takes off

“We’ve seen variations of it for some time, but The Chop is now front-and-center,” announces S.F.-based hair stylist Alex Chases. Setting it apart from the rest, this look “adds layers, fresh energy and more flirt.” CHASES’ STYLING TIPS It can be as easy as flipping hair over and letting a blow-dryer do the work. Finish with a pomade to bring out the layers. For curly or wavy hair, finish ends with a flat brush to lock in the smoothness. Use Kérastase Elixir to enhance shine and movement. alexchasessalon.com.
