I often talk about the importance of proportions in relation to clothes – whether it’s the right proportions for your body or the right proportions for an outfit. An equally important proportion to get right is your hair in relation to your face.
I’ve noticed recently that an increasing number of women are wearing their hair much longer than is flattering for them. In my opinion, it makes their faces look tired and drawn – and can often hide a very beautiful bone structure.
If you think you’re one of these women, try pulling your hair away from your face and see how your face seems to change.
Hair doesn’t have to be very short. In fact on most women, chin length hair – and often a bit longer – can be more flattering as you get older than very short hair.
We are now coming into a winter season where there is going to be a lot of emphasis on shoulder and collar detail. Longer, feathered hair is going to look incredibly dated and will not enhance the detailing of this season.
