20s: Piece-y Bob
"Don't be afraid to take a risk with your hair in your 20s since you're still in the process of defining your personal style," says DJ Riggs, International Artistic Director at Large for TIGI. If you have long locks, take a cue from Jessica Stroup and go for a layered chin-level cut.

40s: Soft Layers
Wispy, long layers like Kyra Sedgwick's are easy to style while keeping your look youthful. If your hair does not hold a curl well, use Catwalk Your Highness Firm Hold Hairspray from TIGI with a stick curling iron to add a more defined wave. Then, apply Paul Mitchell Smoothing Gloss Drops and shake loose.

When choosing angles, Riggs suggests only adding them in the back. Bangs should also be longer and not blunt. A wispy style softens your features, creating an anti-aging effect. To match your bangs to Glenn Close's, add Aveda Light Elements Texturizing Cream and rough-dry with your fingers before curling slightly to the side.
