Layers are a key to the youthful look. But, the key to successful layers is to make sure the cut flatters the face. The layers need to hit in all the right places, near the bottom of the ear, the bottom of the chin, and the collarbone are keys.

Lovely romantic curls look great on everyone and they make women look younger. The key to making them look youthful is by making sure the curls are not frizzy.
