Whether your hair is thick, fine, curly or straight, here's 10 long hairstyles that work well at any age. Try them now...
Julianne Moore won this year's Best Actress Academy Award for 'Still Alice' and we say her hair is Oscar-worthy too. Sleek and super straight, this style looks gorgeous on those with square, heart-shaped and rounder faces. Beware though: if you have a long face or your hair isn't in tip top condition it can easily look witchy.
Big and bouncy is certainly a little high maintenance but it looks so glamorous and particularly fabulous on older women. It takes regular visits to the hairdresser's to keep all the layers at the right length and create volume, and of course several cans of hairsprays to keep it in shape. But it's worth it! Just look at Raquel Welch.
Long hair looks beautiful with a fringe, just look at Italian actress Monica Bellucci, the oldest ever Bond Girl at 50! The rule is to keep the fringe always well combed and trimmed. This 'do suits many, but if you have a short forehead avoid at all costs or you'll look angry.
Perfectly worn by Jerry Hall, the Old Hollywood is all about tumbling, silky hair. It's high maintenance and only works if your mane is healthy and glossy but it's a very flattering 'do.
Probably the most practical of them all and easy to keep if you have medium to thick wavy/curly hair like actress Susan Sarandon. This look is all about layers. Just wash, add a little bit of mousse and voila, you're done!
Meryl Streep has fine, slightly thinning blonde hair but she knows how to work it. She simply creates the illusion of volume by adding waves at the top and sweeping back the sides. Great if your hair is starting to age. No-one will know!
Shorter, layered waves like Michelle Pfeiffer's suit many women of all ages, and it's a relatively easy look to sport if your hair is medium to thick. Keep it clean and use both serum for softness and shine and mousse for hold. However if your hair is fine or thin, this look won't hold easily, and a blow-dry or straight style may be easier to maintain.
This glamorous hairstyle is achievable at home only if you are a pro at blowdrying your hair and have several cans of hairsprays at hand. It does require regular visits to the hairdresser, trims and maybe even the odd extension here and there. A definite high maintenance style but it works well for most women.
'Girls' actress (and Tom Hanks' wife) Rita Wilson keeps her long hair soft and wavy, which gives the effect of volume, but your hair doesn't have to be thick to create this effect. Just shape some curls using a wand, or even your fingers, for that glamorous look.
Jennifer Aniston never seems to age, and her hair has a lot to answer for! The 'Cake' star's mane always looks glossy and healthy but never overdone. You'll never see her with a big, American blowdry. She likes that casual look which she achieves with lots of high and low lights, layers and plenty of conditioner. This look is easily achievable if your hair is fine or thinning.
