What worked for you stylewise at 20 — a certain Flashdance-era sweatshirt perhaps? — wouldn't fit your life now, and the same is true for your hair. "The products and styles that did the trick when you were younger may not get the same results today," says stylist Nunzio Saviano of New York's Nunzio Saviano Salon.
That's because your hair is actually changing. "Almost everyone will eventually experience dryness, a slightly different texture, or hair loss," says Michelle Hanjani Galant, MD, a clinical assistant professor of dermatology at Stanford University School of Medicine. "Sometimes these shifts happen as early as your thirties." That's why you'll find plenty of new ideas here — styling advice, haircut inspiration, problem-solving products, and tips celebrity stylists use on themselves (they have off days too). After you're done with our root-to-tip guide, you may not even recognize your own hair… in the best way possible.
