When choosing a cut, it’s important to match it with face shape, hair texture, but also body shape – nothing is more aging than a wrongly chosen or out of date hairstyle.

Layered bobs and texturized one-length cuts are great options – they create movement and lift around the face, giving definition to the chin and elongating the neck.

Longer layers can be easily curved and flipped for movement. Volume at the crown help balance face shape and give definition to the jawline area – opt for a haircut that enhance fullness, again layers are highly recommended that instantly make fine, thin hair look fuller.
