Our hair is our crowning glory. It is the epicentre of our natural beauty. It tells a lot about your health, personality and femininity. The right hairstyle can enhance your looks and give you a boost in confidence. The wrong hairstyle, on the other hand, can cut through all that confidence and can age you.
Here are some hairstyle mistakes that can make you look older than you are.
Coloring your hair can freshen up your look and accentuate your facial features. Unfortunately, the wrong hair color can make you look older.
Some women choose a darker hair color in order to conceal gray hair. But once your hair starts to grow in, it can make the line demarcation more apparent. Plus, going too dark creates the illusion of more fine lines and wrinkles. Too light hair color, on the other hand, can make you look washed out. To avoid this unfortunate outcome, choose a color that is 1 to 2 shades within your natural hair color.
Too much volume
Our hair tends to get thinner as we age. The problem is that no one wants to give in to the thinning. As such, some women would tease up their hair to add body and volume. Often, we see clients trying to get that volume in all the wrong places. While a little volume can be beautiful, too much of it reads very 80s. That can make you look 10 years older.
Too long hair
Most men find long hair sexy. However, excessive length will weigh down your hair, pulling your facial features with it. It will look flat and will only accentuate prominent facial features. The ends may also look thinner. If you love long hair, go for it, but don’t let it grow too long. Get a trim every 6 to 8 weeks to get rid of split ends and keep your tresses healthy.
Keeping your locks in one length can make it look flat and limp. Blunt haircut can make your facial lines look even more evident; thus, making you look older than you really are. Whatever haircut you choose, make sure it has depth and layers.
Ask your stylist to add layers to your hairstyle. Not only will they add volume to your locks, they will also deflect attention away from your wrinkles.
