Kate Capshaw, wife of Steven Spielberg, looks years younger than she is (she was born November 3, 1953, so you can do the math). Capshaw lives in California, summers in the Hamptons and is married to a movie mogul, so you can bet she gets some help because she looks 45, not 60. While you may not be able to afford her plastic surgery work (remember: I'm only assuming, I have no proof) or her dermatological visits, or even her own personal hair salon in her house (you can read about that here), you can take this photo into your hair salon and get a version of her super flattering hairstyle yourself.

This haircut works best on women with naturally straight, somewhat thick hair. If you have fine hair, it will look great, too, perhaps not quite as thick. And if your hair is too heavy, you have have your stylist lighten it up using a razor.

I also love the color. If you have light hair already and a good blonde base, you can get highlights around the face using the balayage technique.
