The heat played double-duty to lock in gloss and shape the strands.

"Her bangs used to fall below the nose," says her stylist, Anh Co Tran. "Now they're actually above the eyebrow, which is a really pretty length." He arranged them on her forehead with a touch of styling wax. "You want to go really light with product when you have hair this short," he says. "You still need a little volume at the crown so the style doesn't look weighed-down."
