Give your locks a modern twist by completing your 'do with a gorgeous bangs design. A blunt, eyebrow-sweeping fringe provides your features with a well-defined frame.

Loose curls and soft layers are also among the most sought-after styling options. Play up the volume with the newest sculpting products and feel free to show your fondness for BIG hairstyles. Use hot rollers to create the curls and a tiny amount of volumizer for statement texture. Use teasing to stand out from the crowd with your super-polished hairdo. On the other hand, if you're more into sleek and soft locks, go for asymmetry as the answer to all your beauty prayers. A flat iron will help you add definition to the graduated structure of your 'do. Soft layers are perfect if you wish to nail down the transition from uniform-length to asymmetry.
