Health and Beauty Tip -- Popular Hairstyles

Hair with "movement" is the popular thing -- fortunately, any length of hair is "in"! Get layered cuts and texturing to increase colume, and flip (but don't curl) ends over or under with a blow dryer or paddle brush. If you have hair that's shoulder-length or longer, uneven layers work best.
