18. Graduated Layers
I know that everyone says you should avoid long hair as you get older, but there are some exceptions to the rules, if you are careful! You’ll start to realize that as you age, the secret to a youthful appearance is highlighting the good, and distracting from the not so good!
If you want to keep some length, the longest length should fall at the collarbone. This is a sexy part of any woman’s body regardless of age. A blunt cut can be too severe looking, highlighting every wrinkle and trouble spots you have. Adding layers modernizes the style, and can open up the face. If you have fine hair, the layers should be no shorter than jaw length, for thicker hair, layers can start at the cheekbones, accentuating the bone structure.
