The Layered And Lifted Look

This look is elegant yet stylish at the same time and adds grace to the face as the cut of the face is enhanced by really short layers surrounding it. Back comb your hair and blow-dry it to achieve a soft layered look using a round styling hair brush. Use a misty hairspray to complete the look and hold the layers in place.

The Soft Curls

The soft curls look great on any hue or any length of hair. These curls especially look good on women above their 50’s as they soften the face and hence are capable of taking years off one’s look. Women who do not possess natural curls can artificially curl their hair using a curler.
