Short Hairstyles for Fall
Have you noticed Eva Longoria's layered bob or Katie Holmes' posh haircut? Learn our guidelines for how to pull off a shorter cut with style.Short Cuts for Square Faces
If you have a square face, stay away from blunt cuts. Shorter layers will soften the edges of your face and make you look younger instantly.Short Cuts for Round Faces
If you have a round or heart-shaped face, a classic or layered bob will make your features pop. With the right cut and styling products, you won't have to worry about high-maintenance hair. The right stylist should give you the freedom to work with your natural texture for a true get-up-and-go-style.Donating Your Hair
If you're chopping off a lot of hair, consider donating it to be made into a wig for women with cancer. Pantene Beautiful Lengths works in association with Hair U Wear to provide women going through chemotherapy human hair wigs at no cost. Mark Garrison Salon provides complimentary cuts with any of our expert stylists to anyone willing to donate at least 8 inches of eligible hair to the cause.
Not quite ready to take the plunge and cut it all off? If you're keeping your length, you can still give your hair a new look if you keep it natural. When your hair curls up, it'll naturally appear shorter, and can give you an instant new look (without cutting anything). Letting your natural waves and curls come through gives your facial features a softer look and can make you seem more approachable.
