As you grow older, your décolleté is starting to hang up a bit as collagen loss and elasticity promote relaxation around the jaw line. Before you go to the store to buy gold things, consider a hairstyle that complements your maturing look. A range of styles camouflages a throat neck and allows you to walk with confidence and style.

Whether you prefer longer curls or a short cut, add layers to your hair to distract your neck. This stylish haircut will give your hair a fuller, must-have for you as your hair relaxes and dries with age. The combing layers pay attention to the line of crystal clear pine and give you a classic style. Add an asymmetrical margin to frame your face, again drawing attention to your face instead of the neck while softening your facial features.

If you want to get your attention off a lean chin line, a short and cheerful style might be for you. Mature actress Halle Berry wears the elegant cut in style. This look does not cover the neck, but disguises it by drawing eyes in a short and scary style. Style this look with some hair spray, and it won't be your neck turning heads.

Avoid mid-length styles at the ends of the cheeks, especially the long mid-lengths, which curve slightly inward and end up in the jaw. This focuses the focus on your neck. Long, wavy curls can help hide the problem area of the neck, especially if you wear long layers that gently frame your face. A shoulder-length cut below your chin could completely hide your neckline if your style covers your neck.

A subtle color can help you hide a throat neck. Your hair will naturally become brighter as you grow older, so avoid the same hair color you used when you were younger. Instead, choose a lighter color and ask your colorist to add some light impressions. When done by a professional, highlights can give you a cheap facelift by illuminating your appearance and distracting your neck.
