As we age, we tend to make several changes in the way we dress or apply makeup. And while we do all this in a bid to look young, we tend to forget one important part of our overall look that could still project us being old, or worse yet, older than we originally are. And that is the hairstyle that we sport.
Just as we find it necessary to make subtle changes to our attire and makeup with age, we need to change the way we style our hair. And these subtle tips and tricks mentioned below would help you with just that.
Trendy Hairstyles To Look Younger
Highlight It Right
With age, hair tends to lose its natural color and shine. One way to make it retain its brightness is to opt for highlights that can you add to the pieces around your face. Doing so would brighten your face instantly. Couple it with an uncontrived, swingy movement and you will look several years younger, not to forget mentioning absolutely radiant.
Check The Shine
With age, hair loses its luster and shine. And that is probably why many women opt for short hairstyles in order to avoid the same. However, there is no need to cut your tresses short if you find them becoming dull.
Opt for good quality hydrating shampoos and conditioners to keep if not improve the natural shine of your hair intact in addition to boosting the smoothness, making it easier for you to opt for longer hairstyles.
Tight Updos Are Strict No-No’s
As you age, you need to make sure that you start moving away from contrived hairstyles like tight buns, stiff updos or hairstyles that involve pulling your hair back completely (make you look too harsh and old for your age). Loose hairstyles will definitely make you look younger, especially if you leave a few wisps of hair to float across your face.
Accordingly, you can opt for off center buns, or lose ponytails. Leave some tendrils falling around your face for a more feminine effect. Keep the individual strands in place with a hairspray. Alternatively, you can apply some anti frizz shine serum to your hairdo to make sure that it stays intact and shines splendidly in the process.
Off Shoulder Hairdos
Another way to sport a long hairstyle without appearing too old is to gently sweep the hair to one side. This would elongate your neck and make you look dashing as well.
Of course, you would need to have some volume and body to sport this hairstyle with ease. So make sure to prep your hair properly before styling. Once you sweep the hair to one side of the body, keep the nape and neckline free of lose strands with the help of bobby pins.
Sporting The Bob
If you don’t have the body or volume to sport a long hairstyle, you can opt for shorter versions like the bob or crop cuts. If you opt for a bob, make sure you add on plenty of layers and accentuate the same with a shine serum.
Choose the cut in par with the shape of your face and opt for light bangs to cover the wrinkles present in the forehead. Long wispy bangs can hide crow’s feet and dark under eye circles effectively. Keep them minimal near the forehead and tapering at the corners so that they just about cover the outer eyes and graze the cheeks.
However, you need to be extra cautious about sporting bangs with a hairstyle. For choosing the wrong style can actually make the bangs overshadow your eyes and make the above mentioned issues (dark under eye circles and crow’s feet) stand out.
