Owners of fine hair want to make them dense in appearance and voluminous. Everything pretty should be done in moderation, and at its creation, it is important not to get carried away. Make a light volume at the roots and fix it with varnish. A dandelion-style hairstyle will add extra years.

6. Long, loose hair


This hairstyle especially looks especially unflattering on ladies above 40. If it's hard to part with the long hair, it's better to arrange it in neat styles. In cases where you want to soften the look, arrange it in light curls.

Long flowing hair like "icicles" framing the face adds nothing flattering to the frame.
