The right hairstyle will keep you looking youthful. It will accentuate your best features and complement your face shape. It also gives you a boost in confidence. Unfortunately, a bad hairstyle or hair color will make you look older and cut through all that confidence.
Here are 4 hair mistakes that can age your face.
This is one of the biggest mistakes women make with their hair. We’ve seen a lot of women who would cling to their childhood hairstyle. Many of them have been sporting the same hairstyle for decades. Although trends usually come back around, your hairstyle needs to evolve.
Sporting a hair color that washes you out
When choosing hair color, make sure that it complements your skin tone. If you prefer a lighter shade, it is important to maintain a contrast between your complexion and your hair shade. Otherwise, you will appear washed out.
We’ve seen a lot of women aging themselves by using very light hair color. Consult with your hairstylist before dyeing your hair. They’ll help you choose the right color that will suit your skin tone.
You’re afraid to lighten up
We all know that gray hair can age you. But what most people fail to realize is that dark hair colors, when used for an older client, can actually make the person look older.
As we age, we undergo many changes that show signs of aging – wrinkles, fine lines, translucency to the skin. The dark color can make these signs more visible. Stay away from dark colors as you age. For a more youthful look, we advise that you use a lighter shade of color than you’re used to. Or better yet, ask your stylist for suggestions.
Letting your hair grow out too long
For centuries, long hair was regarded as the standard of beauty for women. In addition, men also find women with long, luscious hair sexy. There is no denying that long hair looks beautiful. But if your hair is too long, it can drag your hair down and leave you looking older than you are. Once your hair has passed your ribs, it can add years to your look.
We understand that you are trying to grow your hair, but you also need to visit the salon regularly to keep your hair in shape and prevent split ends as well.
