What To Ask For: A soft shagConsider this chop the anti-blunt cut: a shag with no harsh lines and no defining layer. "If you feel secure enough with your hairstylist, ask them to do almost the whole cut with thinning shears," Ess says. "I cut the initial length using regular scissors, then do the rest with thinning shears and a razor," she explains. And styling? Mist with thickening spray, air-dry, then define your natural texture with a wand or iron.
