Those closely cropped bobs and shags may be the hallmark of the carefree waif look, but they are anything but carefree if your hair is too straight, curly or limp. To make these new 'dos work for a variety of hair types, stylists are rediscovering the hair-shaping benefits of that barber shop staple: the straight-edge razor. "By removing excess bulk, a razor cut gives your hair more body. It also gives the hair mobility, because it doesn't blunt the ends like a scissor cut does.
