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.

    • After Being Stared Down by a Couple in Cracker Barrel, This Dad Received a Note About Parenting

      When Kevon Smith Sr. sat down for breakfast at Cracker Barrel with his son Kevon Jr. in Willoughby, OH, he had no idea he was going to make headlines just for being a good dad. Kevon noticed a couple staring and smiling at him and his 3-month-old son, and although he was confused, he just went on with the meal. "I noticed this older couple over in the corner," he said. "They kept smiling at me and I was looking at my son like, 'What is going on?'" But when Kevon left the restaurant, it all made sense, as he saw a note on his car from the couple praising his parenting along with cash to cover his breakfast. "Today your meal is on my wife and me," it read. "Enjoy that baby as long as God intends.

    • Husband sends marriage to the dogs

      Dear Amy: Shortly after my husband and I began dating, he bought a large-breed puppy. He took the dog everywhere he went. We then moved in together, we got another small, mixed-breed dog that we hoped would keep the large dog busy, since he was always demanding my husband's attention. One evening, the large dog snapped at me (he was 6 years old at this point). My husband was very upset, and he was going to put him down, for fear that he had "turned." I begged him not to. About four months later, the large dog growled at me, and my husband took him to the pen outside. While outside, the dog bit my husband several times, so he was put down. My husband now wants to get another dog of the same breed

    • Student Sues College Over 'Social Justice' Activism Mandate

      American college campuses are becoming the main battleground for the First Amendment, usually because faculty or administrators don’t respect the free speech rights of students. In November I wrote about such a case at Iowa State. Another case showing the authoritarianism that increasingly characterizes the professoriate involves the master’s program in social work at Rhode Island College (RIC). A student who did not believe that lobbying the state legislature for “progressive” causes was properly a part of his education and suffered for it filed suit against the school in state court. This remarkable case started way back in 2004, when William Felkner, a graduate student in the college’s social

    • Texas father admits trying to hire hit man to kill daughter's boyfriend, who played dead | Crime

      His wife, Christina Peyton, is accused of being his accomplice. She, too, remains in the Wichita County Jail, records show. Police say the couple ended up soliciting the hit from an undercover cop, who made the parents believe the boyfriend was killed.  The officer contacted the boyfriend, faking a crime scene to help with the ploy, prosecutors say. Police first learned of the plot on June 26, 2015, when a witness came forward with tape recordings of conversations with the Peytons asking the witness to help him find someone to "take out" the boyfriend. The witness said the Peytons offered $300 for the job. Police arranged for an officer to pose as someone who could find a hit man for Peyton.
