FINE-HAIR FULLNESS Traditional layers do not work as well for fine hair unless they are simple bevelled edges. Instead, try a perm, which thickens the diameter of the strands. This can be done on large rollers, to create waves rather than the classic kinky perm you might remember from your youth.

FLATTERING CUTS Make your haircut work for you. Choose a hairstyle that has a side fringe (bangs) rather than a straight-across fringe, and a length that falls to just below the chin if you want to cover a wrinkled forehead and sagging jaw.
INDULGE IN A LITTLE CHIT-CHAT Always find time for a five-minute chat with your hairdresser to discuss exactly what you want.
