STYLING SECRETS A trim every six weeks can be costly; at $40 plus tip, it could set you back about $400 a year. Go every four to six months with this style and a little TLC. Apply a mask (such as Garnier Fructis 3-Minute Undo: Dryness Reversal Treatment, $5.99, drugstores) weekly and a heatprotecting mousse (check the label) before blow-drying with a round brush or using hot rollers.

“A short bob will play up your hair’s natural texture, making styling a snap,” Garrison says. Tousled in No Time ➔ Chin length ➔ Few or no layers ➔ No bangs ➔ Wavy to curly texture STYLING SECRETS Take short hair from sporty to sexy by mixing equal dollops of conditioner and gel (a good combo: Herbal Essences Hydralicious Self-Targeting Conditioner, $2.99, and L’Oréal Paris Vive Pro Glossy Style Glossy Volume Gel, $4.99, both at drugstores). Scrunch through damp hair. Air-dry or use a diffuser; try claw attachments (in the DevaCurl DevaFuser Kit, $39.95, devachansalon.com) for more defined coils.

Take 5 yearS off your face “Bangs are like Botox, hiding lines, while length and layers add youthfulness,” Garrison says. Fresh Fringe ➔ Shoulder length or longer ➔ Full, textured bangs (a blunt cut is too bulky) ➔ Layers from the chin down ➔ Straight to wavy texture STYLING SECRETS Apply a smoothing serum (such as John Frieda FrizzEase Secret Weapon, $5.99, drugstores) all over. Starting with the underneath layers and working your way up, blow-dry section by section with a medium round brush; wind ends upward for bounce. Finally, place the brush under your bangs, put the blower’s nozzle directly above them, and dry until they’re smooth.
