The right haircut for your face shape can transform your look, while a rich, dimensional hair colour brightens your skin tone and infuses you with youthful luminosity. Such extreme promise may not be out of reach after all. Know what you want to draw attention to, such as beautiful eyes or lips, and away from, such as a sagging jawline or round cheeks, and select a style designed to spotlight your best features and forgive your flaws.

Facelift Flip

Ask for height at the crown to draw the eye upward. Keep layers shorter in front to firm the jawline and opt for a flip directed away from the face to draw attention away from drooping jowls. Wispy fringe frame your lovely eyes while disguising forehead wrinkles. A few caramel highlights warm your skin tone and counteract the dull ashiness that mature skin sometimes has.

Upsweep

Pull your hair up into a sleek chignon or back into a ponytail to lift your eyes and forehead visibly. Not only is upswept hair professional and elegant in appearance, but it's also flattering to those women with loosening skin in the upper part of the face. You can achieve this quick remedy for sagging with hair pins and elastics--no trip to the salon necessary. Instead of leaving your hair down, which can create an unseemly vertical line beside an already drooping visage, sweep it back.

The Bob

Glamorous older women including Catherine Deneuve and Helen Mirren favour the bob swept off the face. Versatile and nearly effortless, the bob can be worn straight for shine or curly for texture. The bob works well for medium to thick hair and blends well with fringe. Ask for razored edges shorter near the jaw to attract attention away from sagging skin.
