How to trim a decade — with nothing but scissors! Haircuts that work wonders.
There’s no denying it: Your hair and face change as you get older. And so should your cut, because falling into a hair rut (quick test: have you changed your style in the past five years?) will age you faster than you can say, “I’ll take a Dorothy Hamill.” Finding the right cutand color can give a huge boost to your overall appearance, says New York City stylist Mark Garrison, who did the amazing makeovers shown here. Nervous about radical change? Then think smaller, says Garrison: “You can stick with your favorite style, but update it in little ways.” The trick is to work with a stylist who focuses on three key factors: your bone structure, hair texture and preferred maintenance level (how much time you’re willing to spend on daily styling). Cover those bases and you’re on your way to “Wow!”
