    As we get older just a subtle change in our hairstyle can update our look and make all the difference. Things for you and your stylist to consider are bone structure, thickness of hair and the level of maintenance you prefer. Face framing layers and bangs with subtle highlights as worn by Hoda Kotb, are great for giving your style a flattering vitality. Meghan Markle’s long layered bangs create an individual look, allowing them to flow loosely when wearing a bun.

    Christie Brinkley shows us that volume wins every time, as layers and lift produce her sexy tousled locks. Michelle Pfeiffer also rocks bouncy layers which show off her impressive cheekbones, and pieces that frame the mouth accentuate a lovely smile. A no fuss pixie cut is sported by Maggie Gyllenhaal, providing her with a low maintenance style that is carpet ready. Allison Janney’s ultra straight, sleek bangs are perfect for a modern look whether it’s for a ponytail or low bun.

    If the strong vibrant colours of the moment are a little too much for you, how about a stunning yet subtle ombre hairdo with boho style waves. Use your hair to bring out your best facial features and minimise the not so great ones! For instance short, wispy strands at the back of the head can mask neck wrinkles. Bangs which skim the top of the eyebrows will hide forehead wrinkles, and make your eyes stand out beautifully. Choose a shorter hairstyle that will emphasize the curve of your cheekbones. Alternatively long beachy styles add interest and draw the eye. It’s a mistake to wear your hair flat on the top of your head, unless you’re 16, so ensure you have lots of volume and perhaps layers here.

    Remember when going to the hair salon:-

    • Be specific about what you want, your stylist isn’t psychic
    • Avoid the latest style and opt for one that suits you
    • Rather than simply asking for a bob, describe exactly what effects you desire and mention what you don’t want

    If you remember these pointers you are highly likely to get the cut or colour you want, and everybody will be happy.
