Use hair as an accessory to get the right kind of look and achieving a polished and youthful style is easy. Stacey Keibler illustrates the point with this long, heavily layered cut with side swept bangs and plenty of tousle. Layering long hair helps it look and feel full and thick, with lots of softness and movement; the side-swept bangs encourage eyes to drift across the face, noticing her features along the way. Moreover, her side-swept bang plays into the shape and the movement of her beautiful tumbling natural waves, and it’s this texture that adds the wow-factor to a classic look.
