Many clients over 40 enter a salon looking to improve their appearance and assume they should have short hair…”Not true!”, says Kathy Savage, owner of Christopher Street Salon in Commack. “One key factor when choosing a style is your facial shape. What looks good on someone else, may not look good on you”, says Kathy. Study the shapes below to find the most flattering hair style for you.

Round Longer geometric cuts with angled layers. Avoid blunt styles
that hit above the chin.

Square Flattering cuts that soften the jaw line with face framing layers
is best; short crop or long styles will work with this shape. Avoid
short blunt cuts with bangs.

Oval ` This is the ideal shape and can look great with any style.

Heart Side swept bangs are very flattering; women with larger
features can also wear long hair. Always keep top layers
long, if you go short. Avoid blunt bobs or box shaped cuts.

Long Chin length cuts or bobs and bangs are best because they
add width. Avoid long or very short styles.
