Meet Maryellen

 There's no denying it: Your hair and face change as you get older. And so should your cut, because
falling into a hair rut will age you faster than you can say, "I'll take a Dorothy Hamill." 

"Finding the right cut and color can give a huge boost to your overall appearance", 
says Mark Eubanks of Mark Christopher Salon.

• Lives in Middletown, NJ
• Says her hair is thick with cowlicks

Her Problems
Maryellen's hairstyle was too severe. A long bob with bangs can be flattering, but 
her particular cut lacked shape and movement. She opted to cover her gray, but the dark,
one-dimensional brown that she chose framed her face too starkly, as did her too-thick bangs. 
 In her words: "I looked like a mushroom!"

Why This Cut Works
Softer bangs combined with length at the nape and fullness at the crown flatter her oval
face and really bring out her cheekbones.

What You Can Do
Remember that flat-against-the-head rarely means pretty, unless you're 16. We all need a little lift
around our faces — from layers, styling, or color — to get that extra zing.
