“I want Jen­nifer’s iced mocha cas­cade!”

First For Women - - Style -

HOW IT FLATTERS: Long one-di­men­sional locks can drag fea­tures down and sap skin’s vi­brance. “But face-fram­ing high­lights cre­ate long rib­bons of light that re­flect onto skin for an in­stant bright­en­ing ef­fect,” says col­orist James Cor­bett, who has worked with A-lis­ters like Christina Hen­dricks. “And chop­ping strands to the shoul­ders gives them, and the face, a youth­ful lift.”

GET THE CUT: Ask your stylist for a col­lar­bone-length cut with face­fram­ing lay­ers and ra­zored ends.

GET THE COLOR AT HOME: Ap­ply the for­mula from a high­light­ing kit for dark hair (like Revlon Color Ef­fects Frost & Glow in Honey, $7, Wal­mart.com) onto 1⁄2" sec­tions of hair around the face; let sit 30 min­utes; rinse. To en­sure high­lights don’t look brassy, fin­ish with a gloss (like Clairol Nat­u­ral In­stincts in #6A-Light Cool Brown, $7, Tar­get.com) to nix or­angey tones.
