Medium, blunt hairstyles are not new, not by any means, but this year, it feels as though they made a definite mark on the heads of celebrities, models, hairstylists, and, yes, even us. The deliberately chopped ends make your hairstyle feel fresh, new—certainly healthy—and decidedly chic.

It gets rid of that rounded 'cutesy' look," she says.
