Makeover: Fine, flyaway hair?

Tame it with the right cut and perm

Bridget Demski was wearing her fine hair in a long, limp style that exaggerated the length of her face, the width of her cheeks. But she was afraid that, cut shorter, it would be unmanagaeable, require constant care.

We showed her how having it trimmed with a layer cur, permed for body plus save — the answer for any woman with hair like Bridget’s — would let her wear the shorter, more flattering style shown here.

An assistant in Good Housekeeping’s Fashion Department, Bridget is now able to manage her hair in just minutes, loves the easy new style. The rest of her makeover? Mostly a change in eye makeup.
