Go For Full-On Fringe
"Fringe brings out a youthful look if they are on the fuller side rather than thin and wispy, which can age you," said Etienne Ortega, a celebrity stylist who has worked with everyone from Solange Knowles to the Kardashians. He added, "Bangs can be worn by anyone and are an easy way to make a dramatic hair change. David Mallett's Volume Powder ($40) is perfect for styling your fringe and giving it a bit of bounce and playfulness while also providing structure and hold."
Jin Bang, a celebrity hairstylist for NuMe, agreed that bangs are a great way to achieve a more youthful, softer look. "The key is to cut your hair at an angle and never straight across. You want the outer edges to gradually get longer to help frame your face and blend in with the rest of your hair," Bang said. "Not ready for bangs? Pick a side and try the side-swept fringe."
