2015 Best Haircut, Women's

Kara Hurston, Shag

Some cuts are simply about lopping off split ends, and some happen because you spotted a stranger with such incredible hair, you just had to track down her stylist. It’s the latter that led us to Shag’s Kara Hurston for a tousled, shoulder-length bob—dubbed “Lobs” and dutifully chronicled on Hurston’s Instagram. Lest you worry about following the crowd by taming your tresses here, fret not: Though trendy, Hurston’s cuts are tailored to your face shape and hair type.
