There was never a time when Dame Fashion's hair-dresser made it so possible for every woman to look her best as now. No matter what her features, she can make them appear to best advantage by adopting the most becoming style of hair-dressing. Every mode of especial beauty and grace since the days of Helen of Troy would seem to be in vogue for her using.

It is a common fault among women that they fail to realize the importance of making the most of their crowning glory - the hair. So much thought is given to the wardrobe and so little to the manner of wearing the hair that it is not surprising that so few woman really look their best. It is very well to choose a style and adhere to it, but one should be sure that the contour of the head, after the hair is arranged, is good; that the lines do not enhance one's faults nor prove out of proportion with the lines of the profile; for the side view of the head when the hair is dressed is fully as important as that of the back or front. Few women need have bad profiles if the hair be properly dressed.

An old rule has it that the hair should frame the face. The thin face is often improved by puffing the hair at the sides, and for such the hair may be parted at the center or at one side and arranged below the crown of the head in back. Such a one should never arrange her hair on the top of her head, for by so doing she will only sharpen more the already sharp lines of her face. For this type of feature two becoming styles of hair-dressing are shown. While these are two of the very newest modes they are altogether sane do not demand the quantities of hair which so many of the prevailing arrangements call for. A few curls, at the most, are all that even thin hair would require for the successful realization of either mode.
