Q: I'd like to change my all-one-length hairstyle without a drastic cut. Any ideas?

A: A long side bang can transform almost any style, says Mark Townsend, Dove Hair celebrity stylist. Playing with your hair's texture can also give you different looks. Create "bends" in medium-length or long straight or wavy hair: With a flatiron, clasp the hair in two- or three-inch sections along the shaft, folding it up or down as you move from just below the roots to a couple of inches above the ends. The trick is to keep the ends straight, which gives you a casual, beachy look. Add texture with Sally Hershberger Glam Waves Texture Spray ($13). If your hair is short, try a slicked-back style with lots of shine (use a few drops of Dove Youthful Vitality Silk Crème, $6; drugstores).
