Start Today, Look Younger Tomorrow
Layer and Slice
Blunt cuts get an almost universal thumbs-down from stylists for women over 40, and standard choppy layers don't fare much better. So what looks good? Fine "microlayers" carved into hair. "Slicing crates softness and movement–and that can look extremely elegant," says N.Y.C. salon owner Ouidad. "It's playful and young."
At the Van Cleef & Arpels flagship store in New York City, Blake Lively celebrated the redesign in a black bias Marchesa slip dress with pastel floral embroidery, Chantilly lace cut-outs and a tulle flounce skirt. Van Cleef & Arpels jewels and black Gucci heels completed her look.
