Hair mistakes that make you look older
Your Haircut Can Determine Your Age:
Something as simple as the wrong haircut can add years to your appearance. A good haircut should frame your face accordingly and allow you to express your individuality without giving you a dated or tired look. For instance, long layers help to frame the face and give it a softer look while having bangs helps hide wrinkles and lines in the forehead. Don’t be afraid to try something new either.
Update Your Do:
Some people get stuck in a rut and keep the same hairstyle for years and years. In fact, it can get to the point where no one would recognize you without this look but nothing ages you faster than an outdated hairstyle. Feathered hair hasn’t been around since the early 80’s and the Rachel style went out of style after the 90’s.
Keep it Trimmed:
Split ends and untrimmed hair looks unruly and can add years to your appearance. Remember how gorgeous you feel after a haircut and how it makes you look.
Add the Color:
A plain color of hair can be boosted by adding highlights or lowlights. Even if you do not want to change the color you can still add depth and style to your hair by having some color added. For instance, if you’re a blonde you may want to add some brighter highlights or for redheads, they tend to lose their bright color as we age so adding some red or copper highlights can really help make a difference.
Pump up the Volume:
Since hair thins as it ages, volume is important to maintaining a youthful look. Perms may have gone out of style a few years ago but a volumizing perm can help or for something simpler and less permanent, use volumizing products, a curling iron to add a few volume-making curls, or even blow drying upside down can help add that lift that gives your hair more volume for a younger look.
Your hair is your crowning glory and you should use it to your advantage. Just because you’re of a certain age doesn’t mean you have to just let everything go and not fight it, especially when it comes to your hairstyle. All of these tips can help you have a more youthful, younger looking appearance no matter what your age.
