Nicole Kidman's Hairstyles

The difference between looking fresh and youthful or older than you are can be as simple as the state of your bangs or the shade of your highlights. Don't believe it? Check out this celebrity proof—and pick up a few tricks, too.

Nicole Kidman

Older (left): Sometimes curls signify youth—Shirley Temple, Honey Boo Boo—but too much volume on top with subtle curls at the ends is a bit more Golden Girls than Goldilocks.

Younger: By maintaining the volume up top yet making hair sleek, Kidman's look is still sophisticated without the country-club effect. Fekkai Glossing Cream depuffs hair and leaves it insanely glossy.

Emily Blunt's Hairstyles

Emily Blunt

Older (left): Over-lightening hair, especially to an ashy blonde, can make you look a bit drawn.

Younger: The rich chocolate brown is vibrant, fresh, and warms up her milky complexion. Keep your color vibrant with Garnier Fructis Color Shield Fortifying Shampoo

Anne Hathaway

Older (left): Granted, growing out short hair is hard. But still, the harsh geometric lines emphasized by the volume are aging.

Younger: Hathaway's gamine crop—and long false lashes—look stunning, feminine, and young. Add texture and definition with Aveda Control Paste.

Zoe Saldana's Hairstyles

Zoe Saldana

Older (left): Long, stick-straight hair is severe and looks overworked.

Younger: Loosening things up with a gentle wave and adding some body at the roots makes hair look natural and softens the face. We love the Tigi Bed Head Curlipops 1" Tourmaline Ceramic Hourglass Styling Iron.


Meryl Streep Hairstyle

Meryl Streep

Older (left): Even the prettiest so-blonde-it's-almost-gray hair can be aging.

Younger: A simple single process can resuscitate hair, reflect light, and look really pretty.


Katherine Heigl Hairstyles

Katherine Heigl

Older (left): An allover-volume, sister-wife bouffant just doesn't work on anyone.

Younger: For a flattering updo that's young and feminine, keep the part undefined, the volume under control and focused in the back, and the pieces loose and random.

    • Teen charged with lying about being raped by college football players

      Two college football players who were suspended from their team last year and saw their scholarships revoked after rape accusations have been cleared by police after authorities say their accuser recanted her story. Nikki Yovino, 18, of South Setauket, NY, has been charged with second-degree falsely reporting an incident and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence in connection to an incident at a Sacred Heart University football party in October, the Connecticut Post reports. When pressed about inconsistencies in her original statement, Yovino admitted that she made up the rape allegations against the two football players in hopes of gaining sympathy from another man — a prospective boyfriend, according to an arrest warrant affidavit. Police said Yovino told them on Oct. 15 at a hospital where they responded for a sexual assault complaint that she attended a Sacred Heart football club party the night before at a house on Lakeside Drive in Bridgeport.

    • Stanford student flips off Alex Trebek on ‘Jeopardy’ — or that’s what it looks like

      If hard-core “Jeopardy” fans are to be believed, Stanford University math and computer science major Viraj Mehta was indulging in a fairly new tradition for the night-time game show: doing something mischievous to get viral social media attention. During a match that aired Tuesday, as part of the 2017 edition of the Jeopardy! College Championship, host Alex Trebek thought he was asking Mehta a simple question about pizza, the Huffington Post reported. To respond, Mehta, who is class of 2018, launched into a humorous, math geeky anecdote about the proper way to fold and eat a pizza. But he used his hands to demonstrate, with the middle finger of his left hand appearing to make a certain gesture.

Andrés found himself at the receiving end of a lawsuit from Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign after he pulled out of a restaurant project in Washington, D.C.’s Trump Hotel. The move was a response to the then-candidate’s controversial remarks about Hispanic immigrants, which the chef claims made it difficult to attract staffers and customers.
