Start by consulting a trusted stylist to determine whatlongish cut will work for your height and silhouette. For some, that means a shoulder blade–grazing style with layers around the face. For others, it’s a long, layered, shoulder-skimming bob. For still others, it’s Demi Moore–like locks with sideswept bangs. (Notice no stylist endorses the ’do favored by Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. We loved her, too, but don’t go there.) Then, once you’ve got the right cut, it’s imperative to maintain it. Farel says you can go three months (as opposed to six weeks for shorter styles) between salon visits—but don’t wait longer than that. “Your stylist is the cheapest surgeon you’ll find,” he says, because the right cut instantly changes your face, giving you a fresher, lifted appearance.
