A New Hairstyle for a New You

At least for a while, we have to live with a new haircut. However, this thought should not keep you from trying out new styles. Some haircuts allow more styling variations than others. Actress Holland Roden demonstrates the versatility of layered long hair

Many women wish for beautiful long hair. They imagine thick waves of shiny hair caressing their shoulders. It takes only a little styling mousse to push the flowing rich waves into shape. Their partners may love such hair even more.

While there is no valid argument against beautiful long hair, every once in a while a style change may be in order. Of course, cutting the long hair is out of the question. Skilful styling is all it takes to change your appearance. Holland Roden shows how to turn layered long hair into four completely different styles without cutting a single hair.

Style Changes: One Haircut, Four Styles

Holland Roden allows her layer-cut long red hair to fall over her shoulders in gentle waves. Dependent on her activities, Holland Roden whips her hair into different styles. Leave it to an actress to show how a few simple styling changes can alter the appearance. She starts by deciding whether she wants to wear her hair open or tame it into an updo.
