    • Problem: Bulky, Blunt Bangs

      Solution: Subtle Layering
      A thick fringe that's cut straight across your forehead creates a harsh edge that can call attention to crow's feet, says Kristan Serafino, celebrity hairstylist and creator of the beauty blog Serafino Says. For a softer, more flattering effect, ask your stylist to shape bangs with tiny vertical cuts.


    • Problem: Harsh All-Over Color

      Solution: Highlights
      "There comes a point when some people age out of single-process," says Tohmas Elmlund, a colorist at Valery Joseph Salons in NYC. If skin looks sallow, try adding some lighter tones. "It can take off ten years," Elmlund says. A pro will do it best, but with practice, a kit like L'Oreal Paris Touch-On Highlights ($13.99; drugstores) can deliver similar results.

    • Problem: A Stick-Straight Style

      Solution: Texture
      "Lank locks draw the eye down to the jawline and neck -- and any imperfections there," Serafino says. If hair is curly, apply a defining product like John Frieda Curl Reviver Styling Mousse ($5.99; drugstores) and air-dry. If strands are straight, add a bend at the ends with a round brush when blowing dry.

    • Problem: A Sky-High Tease

      Solution: All-Over Volume      
      Hair thins as you get older, but backcombing at the crown to compensate looks old-fashioned -- not youthful. New products actually create fullness by swelling individual strands with high-tech plumping ingredients. Spritz with a thickener like Pantene AgeDefy Advanced Thickening Treatment ($18.99; drugstores) before styling.

    • Problem: A Salt-and-Pepper Mane

      Solution: Gentle Color
      "New dyes cover grays for longer than ever, while protecting already fragile hair," Elmlund says. Go for an ammonia-free formula that's infused with conditioning oils. At the salon ask for INOA or Redken Chromatics. At home, try Garnier Olia Oil Powered Permanent Color ($9.49; drugstores).

    • Problem: Dry, Dull Strands

      Solution: An Anti-Aging Hair Regimen
      After 40, strands are physically thinner, frizzier, drier, and more brittle. Now a new category of products takes a page from skin care science, using high-tech ingredients that specifically address the needs of aging hair. Try Aveda Invati Exfoliating shampoo ($25; aveda.com).
