What shape is your face? Would you be opposed to something like the girl on the right? http://www.hair-styles.org/fm6.html The layering around the face and in the cut give the hair a bit of volume, the the layering around the face is a young look. Another idea is an inverted bob, you can have you hair shoulder length, or a bit shorter and it is a very young, but finished cut. The downside being that in order for it to look "fresh" you have to get a hair cut every three weeks, but it is otherwise an easy look to maintain.

go for a closed cut. it looks nice and you will be looking at least 15 years younger. i used to go for close cut always.

ask the hairdresser, I haven't had a perm for years, I hate them really. Torture and they always look like it. Go for straight, natural

A layered look would add volume to your hair and it's easy to manage. My mom is a hair stylist:) I also have fine hair and I currently have this cut.

You can cut it into a bob style with a light but longer layers. This will give you the fullness you need and some body also.

You need to find a hairdresser who is familiar with a 3 tiered effect.. it is not only neat appearing, it takes very little care..

an easy hairstyle to maintain is to get it cut at your neck, like a bob. all you need to do to keep it up is trim it moisturize it and tie it up at night like wrap it it works for me.

Do you have a stylist that you trust and that knows your lifestyle?
