This style is layered throughout. The shorter layers provide fullness and movement in the style. The shortest of these layers, at the top, measure about 4 inches. Layering continues to the bottom, getting gradually longer. The hair around her face is shorter and face framing.
The fullness and movement of this fun and youthful style is not only attractive for the young woman but also serves to soften and lift features of a mature face. To make it more fitting for the woman of 40 or 50, try brushing the bangs to the side. This has the effect of opening and lifting the eyes.
  1. Shampoo and condition with products formulated for your hair texture. If your hair is as fine as Ms. Helgenberger’s, or has a tendency to be limp, use body-building products.
  2. Apply firm hold styling foam or spray gel from the root to the ends of your hair.
  3. Blow your hair dry using a large round brush to form the shape and fullness of the style.
  4. To add the fullness and direction shown in this picture, backcomb the top and crown.
  5. Finish with flexible hold hair spray.

This style shows that fine hair can be very attractive when it is only lightly layered.

The soft layers of this style start at about chin level. Ms. Helgenberger has a beautiful face and wears the style well, however, it is not so attractive on everyone. Hair that is this straight sometimes seems to pull down the features of a mature face.
  1. Prepare your hair as in step 1 above.
  2. Apply styling foam formulated for fine hair from the root area to the ends.
  3. Blow your hair dry creating soft fullness. This may be accomplished by simply using a vent brush or you may need to use a round brush.
  4. If the end result is too straight, use an extra large round brush to form a slight curve in the ends.
  5. Finish the style by spraying it lightly with natural hold hairspray.
