The Chop Julianne Hough

There is a brand new hair-trend out there that is spreading like wild-fire. It is called “the chop”.  We first saw this ‘do last summer on the lovely Julianne Hough. She sports this new ‘do in her upcoming film (out Valentine’s Day) Safe Haven. Which by the way is based on my favorite Nicholas Sparks book thus far. To get back on topic, Nicole Richie and Vanessa Hudgens have also jumped on-board this week by getting their own hair chopped into this short, front-layered, long bob-like ‘do.  I personally love this hairstyle, and I have debated getting my super-long hair chopped like Julianne’s since she first sported it last summer.  Should I?  Or shouldn’t I?  Comment below and let me know your thoughts. As soon as I do, all of these lovely starlets will be rocking major hair extension with my luck.  If you are contemplating getting this hairstyle like Suave Professionals® spokeswoman Nicole Richie, here are styling tips straight from  Suave Professionals® Stylist Jenny Cho.

 Here are Suave Professionals® Stylist Jenny Cho’s tips for creating the unstructured look that is full of shine:

· For hair that needs an extra boost of shine, use the NEW Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil as a shine treatment on dry hair before you shampoo. Divide hair into three sections and apply 2-3 pumps of the Styling Oil to each section. Leave in for 5-7 minutes and shampoo as usual.

· If your hair has some natural wave and texture, blow dry hair so that it’s only halfway dry, using fingers for a more natural look.  If you need some help with the wave, blow dry hair completely and wrap 1-2 inch sections of hair around a curling iron (alternating each section away from the face and towards the face), leaving ends out for a “messier” texture.  Front sections of hair should be curled away from the face. Tousle curls after they have cooled.

· Part hair to the side, so that it hangs just slightly in front of face, and finish by adding 1-2 pumps of the NEW Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil over the surface of dry hair for radiant shine.
