These days we have mature women trying to keep up with their younger counterparts and they go about this in a number of ways. Ever seen a woman of 50 in low waist and tank top or a mother of three in a low hugging gown. The streets are agog with women – young and old – competing not only for the attention of men but the respect of other women.
A woman’s hair is another way to greatly alter her physical appearance, even her age. There a lot of hair styles but the one that can make a 45 year old lady look 30 in a flash is bangs or fringes as it is popularly called.
Bangs of fringes is a shaped cutting of the front part of the hair so that it lies over the forehead. Bangs are usually cut fairly straight at or above the eyebrows, but it can also be ragged or ruffled, spiked up with hair gel, swept to one side or the other, or cut longer to fall over the eyes
The key to young-looking bangs or fringes as follows:
1. They should be thick: Wispy pieces can make hair look thin. And anthropologically speaking, thick, lush hair is a sign of youth and fertility. You know, if looking fertile is your thing.
2. They shouldn’t be totally blunt: Razors are essential for slightly varying the lengths of the ends.
3. They should hit between the eyebrows and tops of your eyes: Super-short bangs can be cute, but they have a retro feel…which, visually, can = old.
