Part your hair In the center, and brush soft beau-catcher ringlets on your forehead and cheeks (lower center). It is a wonderfully feminine style. On an afternoon shopping spree, seek a charmingly casual hair-do.

But you must remember that the basis of any lovely hair style is the cut you itart out with.
