Even a small change can make a world of difference. In Cathy’s case, trimming a fraction of an inch from the bottom of her A-line bob and working in a few graduated layers “softened her square jaw,” says Cutler, who gave Cathy her cut. Shawn, a colorist at the salon, applied large swaths of rich highlights that “bring lightness to her eyes,” Cutler says. The best part? With the easy cut and color, maintenance will be a cinch. “Everyone’s raving about it,” Cathy says of her new look. “It definitely stays!”Best for:
