A flawless mane is the first step to any great look, no matter your age. The perfect mane, however, starts with a great cut. Not only do seamlessly executed layers, bangs and chops frame your face and add an extra oomph to your look, but a great cut can also whittle away years.

Halle Berry

A wavy LOB (long bob) can wipe away years. Ask for face-framing highlights, as well: Halle's caramel streaks add a youthful glow to her skin. Wispy bangs can hide forehead creases, too.

Jennifer Aniston

Sorry, Rachel, but this cut is way cuter. The soft, piece-y waves frame Jennifer Aniston's face beautifully and give her a cool-girl vibe. To mimic the style, ask for shorter layers around your face.

Kristen Wiig

A sleek, modern bob is the way to go if you're worried about having hair in your face all day. Ask for slightly shorter layers around your face, and a choppier cut to add a bit more texture. You can either style this straight or add a bit of a wave to it for a youthful vibe.

Kate Beckinsale

No need to shy away from longer locks just because you're over 40; a shiny, bouncy mane like Kate's is easily recreated. Ask for layers that can be blow-dried away from the face when rocking a middle part.

Brooke Burke-Charvet

A blunt bob is always chic, and it practically styles itself. Ask for a face-framing fringe if you want to copy Brooke, but a bang-less trim will be just as sexy. Either run a straightener through the ends in the morning, or tousle for soft waves.

Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara is the queen of sultry, lived-in waves. Be sure to ask your stylist about a cut with lots of movement and bounce so that it's versatile should you choose to wear it sleek and straight.
