Below are some of the best hairstyles, haircuts, and best hair color for women over forty.
Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman, Nicolette Sheridan, and Teri Hatcher
While "the wet look" probably won't do it for the average girl, this style with the layers and side-swept bang allows the longer face not to be so long. Also, a little fullness in back and on the sides also helps to even out a long face. It shows that even someone with a long face can wear long hair.
***this shorter style with framing around the face looks the best on long faces.
Marcia Cross with the best red haircolor. Also, Cross shows the redhead how to chose their colors. Look at how gorgeous the yellow shirt looks against her haircolor. She is absolutely glowing here. Also a nice basic cut (for not-so-perfect faces, put your part on the side...)
