Your hair isn’t just a factor of personal style. While getting a fun, fresh haircut is one great way to express yourself and show off your personality, the right one can also take years off of your face and keep you looking younger than ever.
If you’re on the hunt for haircut inspiration to show to your stylist, look no further; we’ve got you covered with expert advice from Celebrity Hairstylist Gina Rivera, founder of Phenix Salon Suites.
There are several things to keep in mind when choosing the perfect anti-aging haircut. But ultimately, Rivera says the hairstyle that will look best on you will come down to your unique features and face shape. That’s why above all, she recommends choosing a trusted, experienced stylist to handle the job. “It’s best to work with a salon professional who is trained to look at face shapes, as well as facial features, and can assist with selecting the right style,” Rivera explains.
Between the rise of hair clips and scrunchies, butterfly clips, and tendrils, it’s safe to say hair trends and accessories from the Y2K era are back like never before. The latest accessory social media is loving: head scarves, with patterned or solid-colored rectangle and square scarves that can be worn seemingly endless ways for a cute summer look. They work great for bad hair days, protection against wind or rain, or as an on-the-go polished style.
And again, the head scarf isn’t a new trend, as it started way before the ‘90s (and the current Y2K craze), but this summer you’ll see modern iterations on the traditional item. “Hair scarves are definitely a ‘70s vibe,” says Aquage brand ambassador and celebrity stylist Laura Polko. “But this trend coincides with the increase of people experimenting with accessories, especially those that circle back to different eras and inspirations.”
Wondering how to add the go-to accessory to your styling repertoire? Fortunately, the trend is so beloved because of the variety of looks you can create, both minimalism and intricately detailed. Lucky, TZR curated an expert-approved list of six ways to style the popular summer headpiece, according to celebrity hair stylists. From long hair, short hair, curls or waves, here are the six best ways to stay on top of the head scarf trend this summer.
Nothing can boost your confidence like a fresh, flirty hairstyle—a new ‘do can even take years off of your face! That being said, the wrong haircut can tank your self-esteem and instantly age you. That’s why it’s important to ensure you’re choosing a style that will be the most flattering for your face. While the haircut that will look best on you comes down to your specific facial features and face shape, there are a few universal hairstyle rules that every woman can follow.

We often consider our hairstylists close confidants. But are there things they aren’t telling us? Yes! While some tips might be easier to share, like how to best shampoo locks, others are a bit more sensitive–like when a client has Shirley Temple hair and can’t understand why she’s not able to transition to Gwyneth Paltrow straight strands with ease.

The summer is a great time to refresh your beauty look with anything from the season’s top makeup trends to an updated skin care routine to, of course, a new summer hair color. This season colorists are predicting chocolate brown and more rich brunette hair shades to really take off for a few reasons. “Like all darker shades, when you go brown, your hair stays healthier because it reflects the sun more — making brown shades a low maintenance option,” says Chiara Scudieri, founder of hair company, I.C.O.N, of its popularity. Min Kim, L’Oréal Professionnel global ambassador echoes this: “Shades of brown are not damaging as there is no lifting or lightener used unless you’re adding lighter pieces to existing dark hair.”
Plus, from bronde to chestnut, there’s no shortage of brunette color options. But, with so many shades to choose from, how do you narrow down your search? According to Kim, it’s all about the undertone of your skin. “By looking at your veins, if you see blue or purple, you are most likely a cool undertone,” the expert shares. “On the other hand, if you see green, you have a warm undertone.” Although the general rule of thumb is to choose a shade that is opposite your undertone for your hair color, Aaron Bradford, colorist at NYC-based hair studio Cedric Salon, told TZR that this isn’t always the case — sometimes it’s best to accentuate your natural pigments instead of contrasting them. When in doubt, discuss your color goals with your colorist.
