The tousled bob cut is a look that
Viola Davis totally rocks. It's youthful because while it's a bob length, the layers around the face keep it soft and flowing without the usual angular lines of a bob. The layers in the crown or around the perimeter give lift and provide movement, making it functional and very appealing all at the same time.

Trying a short cut with volume, like Halle Berry is also a sure bet. The key to success with this long pixie is to keep the strands tousled and soft, rather than spikey.
Long layers always give off a youthful appearance as evidenced by Eva Longoria. This style offers a departure from shattered angles of the past to effortless, loose waves,which seamlessly go between a sleek straight style to full body waves. Stylists encourage an off-center or side part that falls naturally in place and make the eyes seem wider. It is believed to give a more youthful appearance.
The high ponytail worn by Jennifer Lopez has a lifting and tightening effect on the face. Curl the ends to give the style a soft, effortless vibe.
Another ponytail option is to make it a low messy bun like Keri Russell’s that is slightly undone and casual, never too tight or polished.
