After: Judy Capel

After snipping off just enough to remove the dry ends, stylist Dean Holcome cut in layers to make Judy’s hair seem less lank, then added bangs to draw attention to her eyes. But the biggest change came when colorist Roxy applied a vibrant, reddish-brown shade. “It brings a glow to her skin,” Cutler says. While Judy is still adapting to the new hue, she’s thrilled with the cut, pronouncing it “bouncy and young—my hair was too weighed down before.”

Best for: Oval faces; medium to coarse hair with wavy to curly texture.

Styling tip: Enhance curls and minimize frizz by using fingers to comb a small amount of Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Calming Creme ($28, bumbleandbumble.com) through damp hair, starting underneath and moving from roots to ends. Use hands to gently scrunch hair while blow-drying, and finish by wrapping sections loosely around a one-inch-barrel curling iron.
