Ask your stylist to cut short, shaggy layers throughout your hair. "This look is heavily layered and all about having lots of defined, angled pieces," says Gillin, so specify that you want the layers to be chunky and square. The length of the style should hit around the middle of your neck. - GoodHousekeeping.com
To get smooth, sleek hair like Sandra Bullock, first apply a serum or cream to your hair and comb through. Part your hair on the side (diagonally, not straight back), and dry with a Mason Pearson brush. "Then, flat-iron if needed for the finishing touch," recommends Vanessa Ungaro, stylist at Warren-Tricomi Salons.
