This cut is long on style but short on fuss, perfect for the gym bunny. New York City stylist Marvin A. Carrington ( macstyle.net ) razor-cut the hair into short layers. He spritzed on a leave-in conditioner and followed with a spray of setting lotion for texture and shine. (We like Lottabody Texturing Setting Lotion.) He used his fingers to create this snappy tuft-like texture.
