If anyone has mastered the art of creating the perfect eyebrow shape at home, we want your secrets. For most of us, it's an on-going struggle that usually involves over-tweezing a few times and using brow products in the wrong shades. Truthfully, the natural placement of your arches is the most ideal brow shape for everyone, but if you owned a pair of tweezers in high school, it's probably been years since your brows have looked remotely close to their untouched state. While it's also important that whatever brow shape you have is what makes you feel the most confident, if you want to completely reshape your brows for a new look, it can be tough to know where to start. That's why we turned to Kelley Baker, celebrity brow artist and owner of Kelley Baker Brows, for help. Baker, who counts Khloe Kardashian and Zendaya among her clients, recommends starting slow when you want to try a new shape. "You want to remember that we are always trying to make the brows be a different shape than the face so that the two will go together," she says.

Whether you have a pixie, a bob, or long hair, the shag works on every length, plus a number of hair textures. So, if this unicorn of a haircut isn't defined by length of your hair, what makes a cut shaggy? It's all in the layers. Typically, the shag is a layered cut with feathered ends, and often finished off with bangs. Yep, if you've been debating whether or not to take the plunge and try bangs, the shag is the perfect haircut to compliment a fresh set of fringe.  "Bangs work well with a shag haircut because it adds to the effortless vibe and draws attention up to the eyes and cheekbones," says Chara DeSimone, a stylist at Bumble and bumble's midtown salon in New York City. "It also blends in with the shorter layers." As for what kind of bangs to add to a shag, well, that's up to you, too. DeSimone says she typically likes to add curtain bangs to a shag, or short, wispy bangs that sit at the eyebrow and open in the center.  However, she says to take face shape into consideration so the overall look is balanced. "For a heart-shaped face, I’d go for longer and more wispy, for a square face, I’d go for rounded and soft, and for for a round face, I’d go for a heavier or blunt bang," she suggests. Celebs have got the shag haircut with bangs memo. Kerry Washington's layered pixie cut and Julianne Hough's effortless, textured bob are just a few examples of how to do the cut right.  Looking for inspo for your own cut?
