First For Women - - Style -

Wear­ing the same ’do for decades can be like car­ry­ing around a se­cu­rity blan­ket—but when the look be­comes dated, it can also be ag­ing. The quick­est way to shave years off your look? Break out of that com­fort zone with a hair re­fresh—just like Maria did! “The vol­ume and tex­ture from an ear-length style pulls fo­cus up, giv­ing fa­cial fea­tures a lifted look,” says Johnny Gaita, the stylist at Chris Chase Sa­lon in New York City who gave Maria her gor­geous long pixie. “The shorter style also opens up the face and helps the neck look longer, in­stantly re­ju­ve­nat­ing the ap­pear­ance.” Gaita also kept the back and top lay­ers slightly longer to give the style fem­i­nine edge. Tip: Since shorter hair can sap some of the vol­ume and lus­ter of longer tresses, col­orist Mike Petrizzi added in ul­tra-thin face-fram­ing high­lights. “This re­stores depth and di­men­sion for thick­er­look­ing, more lus­trous locks.”

“I’ve had the same hair­style for over 30 years!”
