The cut of the season is short and boyish at the nape of the neck with feminine fullness through the crown. A longer top layer and subtle internal layering make for wash-and-wear ease, myriad styling possibilities and freedom from most hair-styling products. The sassy coiffure has no official name (although Vidal Sassoon calls its versions Turnstyles)
