Does this sound familiar? You go to the salon and say to your stylist, “I need a change. My hair’s so thin/flat/boring/blah” (take your pick). Two hours later you’re Googling “How to make your hair grow faster” and stopping at the drugstore for hair gummies, styling gel and scrunchies. Haircut mistakes happen. They’re often a result of what I call “Should I cut or let it grow?” syndrome. Believe it or not, celebs our age go through this dilemma, too. Some make a radical change; others reboot their signature cut. Get inspired by their pixies, bobs, lobs and more before your next close encounter with the scissors. Here are 10 snips to happier hair.
