Who doesn’t like a fresh and vibrant hairstyle that sheds several years off your real age? A lot of women invest money and time on redefining their style to make them look younger. But oftentimes, these efforts go down the drain because their hair betrays them. It is not just about growing gray hair, which is an inevitable process of growing old, but your overall look and hairstyle that might be aging you unknowingly.
Here are some of the tricks you can try to prevent your hair from aging you:
Cut the length. Women should refrain from growing their hair too long, especially those who are above 30 or 40, because this can make you look older than your age. Hair styling experts advise that a universal length should hit the collarbone and anything beyond that can be seriously aging. In addition to a collarbone length hair, go for face-framing layers too because it diverts attention away from your neckline where aging might show.
Avoid going too short. In addition to avoiding a very long hair, hair that is too short must be avoided too. The end of your cut, according to hair care experts, emphasizes the facial feature. If you have a sagging jaw line or wrinkled neckline, you do not want to expose them by cutting your hair too short. There is no hard-and-fast rule when it comes to finding the ideal length but you have to examine how you look with specific styles and length.
Update your look often. One other culprit to aging hairstyle is one that hasn’t been updated for the last decade or so. Some women are not too experimental when it comes to their hair – your concern is completely valid. However, keeping the same hairstyle for the last 10 years can seriously age you! It’s already 2013 and you don’t want to don a hairstyle that was a hit in the 1990’s, do you? When experimenting with new hairstyle trends, consult your hairstylist about how you can make certain cuts and styles work for your personal style.
Get some bangs. Bangs, when done right, can make your facial feature seem younger. It also helps to conceal the forehead wherein wrinkles often appear first. Make sure to go for a soft and youthful bangs style to not be counter-productive. Also, determine the face of your shape to find the right style and length of bangs to get.
Get a new hue. Coloured hair is also one way to give your overall look a youthful glow. There are several colours to choose from with this year’s top hair colour trends but make sure you consider your hair type and natural skin tone when picking a hue.
