After what seems like an eternity in beauty years, the era of long hair is over. Whether the pixie, the bob, or the It girl favorite lob (otherwise known as the long bob) is more your thing, this season is all about going short. For those not willing to make the chop, the long styles of the moment still have a short element like bangs or choppy layers. Here, Raphael Reboh founder of Femme Coiffure Hair Spa in Miami Beach and stylist to Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston, and Chrissy Teigen, gives us the lowdown on the chicest cuts for spring.

The Asymmetrical Pixie

The pixie revival has been going full-steam for a while now, but the latest rendition of the iconic style has a modern twist. Reboh leaves the bangs longer, with one side aligned with the eye like Jennifer Lawrence. Though this look is angular and cut with a razor, he still suggests keeping it soft by not using any straight lines.

The Classic Bob

The chin-length bob may have once seemed a little too mumsy or even childlike. But the new take on the look, whether worn tousled like Clemence Poesy or straight, parted on the side or the middle, is totally chic.

The Choppy Lob

If you had your eye on the front row during Paris Fashion Week, you may have noticed that an almost messy long bob was the It Girl de rigueur hairstyle.

Tousled Baby Bangs

Those looking for a mid-length style should frame their faces with piece-y layers and short bangs à la Lake Bell. But since this style can often look severe, it’s best for those with soft rather than angular features.

Grown Out Layers

For those keeping their hair long like Bella Thorne, it’s all about long bangs and lots of different lengths. We’re not quite in “The Rachel” territory yet, but layers are making a major comeback.
