Bangs and fringes
Long, wispy and face-framing bangs can help hide crows’ feet. Pooja Bedi, 42, prefers side-swept bangs across her forehead. If you want to keep your hair long, take a tip from36-year-old Rashida Jones. Get bangs that fall between your brows and lashes.
The pixie cut
Mandira Bedi, 40, has an easy-to-manage super short pixie cut that can go from out-of-bed sexy to sleek in no time. Ask your stylist to cut short, shaggy layers throughout your hair. 45-year-old Halle Berry’s look is heavily layered and defined. A slightly messy, androgynous crop looks sweet, easy and face-flattering on 34-year-old Ginnifer Goodwin. Gul Panag, 35, wears her wavy hair in a rocking cut that is halfway between a crop cut and a pixie.
Don’t want to get a haircut? Wear your hair in a high ponytail with a little volume at the crown and a few loose tendrils on the sides, suggests Renee. “When you pull your mane all the way up from the roots, you’ll notice an upward pull that literally lifts your face up,” she says. The same rule applies to buns.
