New York hairstylist Carrie Butterworth recommends bottom layers for women with long, thick hair.
Butterworth recommends bangs only if you have a high forehead; otherwise, they can accentuate facial flaws.
Putting your hair through the ringer with heat styling and chemical processing can make it appear older.
Thick hair looks younger and more polished when it's shoulder-length or longer after 40.
Long hair drags the eyes down, emphasizing sagging facial features, says Butterworth.
Waves are lucky. Butterworth says wavy hair is great because it can be straightened.
Butterworth suggests short layers for curly hair. Butterworth says layers release hair weight and show off natural curl texture.
Age accentuates facial features, and limp hair doesn't help. Length adds weight to limp hair, reducing root volume and length body.
