GWYNETH PALTROW’S STYLE: Below-the-shoulders strands and scattered, imperceptible layers.
WHAT MAKES IT HOT: Face-framing layers à la Rachel Green may finally be a thing of the past. As Townsend sees it, a uniform length is more 2010; razored ends give the cut movement and keep it from looking drab or drapey.
WHO IT WORKS FOR: “Honestly, this cut works for nearly any face shape. Styling it with off-center part would flatter a heart-shaped face, a center part looks stunning on an oval face,” he says.
