Haircuts To Avoid So You Don't Look Like A 'Karen'

8. Teased Layers
When studying what makes a "Karen" hairstyle, one element that seems to be constant across a majority of their hairstyles is an overuse of hairspray and too much vigor with a backcomb. Take Sharon Osbourne's look from 2003. Her pixie-shag hybrid had a variety of piecey layers, which she teased to stand high on her crown. Her stylist then froze the layers with a bottle of hairspray, making them stiff and spiky. Avoid this crunchy look by using less product.
