13 Ways To Wear The New Cool Girl Haircut
Want a fresh new spring cut, but not ready for a bob? Try the Alexa! We've named the popular new style after the ultimate cool girl who brought it to life: Alexa Chung. The shoulder-grazing cut has light layers and choppy fringe—and has been popping up on tastemakers like Rihanna, Anna Farris, and Suki Waterhouse. The best part? It's incredibly versatile. Click through our slideshow to see how 13 stars are wearing the cut.
Alexa Chung might be the girl who launched a thousand trends, from cat eye liner to the Peter Pan colour. Here, she’s rocking her signature cut at the L’Oreal Colour Trophy Awards in London, the perfect mix of casual and cool.
To cop Anna Faris’ glossy style from Comic Con, finish your look with a shine spray, like Alterna’s Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Dry Oil Mist ($25).
Suki Waterhouse also adopted the look at Jonathan Saunders’ runway show during London Fashion Week. Score her enviable texture with dry shampoo, like Bumble and bumble’s Prêt-à-Powder ($26)
The Alexa can be polished, too! Reese Witherspoon rocked a sleek and straight version of the cut at the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party.
Run a smoothing product, like Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment ($26), through your hair before blow-drying with a paddle brush to achieve Katherine McPhee’s polished style.
To score French beauty journalist Alexandra Golovanoff’s second-day look from Dior’s Haute Couture show, spray Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray ($42) into various layers of your hair and tousle it in with your fingers.
