How to Avoid Haircuts That Make You Look Older

Could Your Hairstyle Choices Be Aging You?

It's one thing to have a haircut that makes you look cool, stylish, and sophisticated, and quite another to have one that just makes you look worn out.

As we've discussed before, certain makeup formulations and techniques can inadvertently age you, and the same is true for hairstyles. The wrong shaping or a poor use of texture are surefire ways to add years to your mug. To find out what you can do to avoid getting a cut that makes you look older than your years, just keep reading.

  • Got fine, straight hair? Avoid layers, since they can make hair look thinner and overly choppy at the ends. Try a blunt or bobbed cut instead.
  • Have curly hair? Straightening textured hair can take away a lot of its natural bounce and volume, so flaunt the beautiful texture you already have by going natural.
  • If you have medium to thick hair, getting a few razored layers around your face will give you more movement, as well as open up your face.
  • You may love long hair, but if you dye regularly or have fine, breakage-prone strands, a shorter haircut will look a lot healthier. Ask your stylist for soft, rounded layers to keep the look from heading into too harsh territory.

Am I the only one who loves it when people think I'm older than I actually am? hehe

Sort of. I have grays in my hair (I've been graying since I was a teenager), which many hairstyles try to convince me to cover. However, I am comfortable with them, and refuse to dye my hair. Besides, I think hair dying is an unhealthy process for my long tresses.Also, I like that my gray hairs give an indication that I'm older than I look. The rest of me looks remarkably young which has led to embarrassment for me.
