Worried that your age might be catching up to you? Don’t be. Age is just a number and what counts more is what’s inside. Yet if you want to make a change in your appearance and turn back the hands of time, a new hairstyle might be the thing you need. The following are a few hairstyles that make you appear younger with ease.
To give your shape a softer and youthful appearance, opt for wispy, soft bangs that don’t just look good but are also versatile. Whether you keep them side swept or worn as is, they work wonders at helping to turn back the hands of time. The best part is that you can sport bangs with almost any hairstyle. Plus the wispy soft bangs are easier to maintain and don’t appear as severe as compared to heavier, choppy bangs.
A straight bob can make you appear more severe which adds to your age. If you want to get a bob to cut down your age, opt to get a wavy bob instead. A wavy bob has a more carefree, relaxed aura to it that is very appealing and Boho chic. The softer edges created by the wavy hair will give a younger appearance and it is also very low maintenance too.
Layered Pixie Cut
Pixie cuts are often very extreme, particularly since they bring the face into focus. However, you can make them softer and get a more youthful appearance too by opting to get a layered pixie cut. This incorporates layers in the cut that blend seamlessly with the rest of the hair. In this manner, the cut not only looks soft, it also manages to inject a bit of volume and life in your short hair.
The shag hair cut has resurfaced and it is one that is extremely youthful. The rough layers add a nice touch of care free, rebelliousness and add a lot of interesting texture in the hair. As an added bonus, you can usually get shag haircuts in hair of any length so you can easily pick and choose which one to opt for. Not everyone prefers the shag cut but if you have thin hair, this can be the perfect way to add some much needed volume to it.
The lob or the long bob is one of the most popular hairstyles at the moment and with good reason too. It is extremely versatile. Whether worn wavy or with sleek hair, it gives a nice finish and also a very youthful experience. The length of the lob is the main reason why people prefer it but it is very easy to maintain and look after.
At the end of the day, it shouldn’t matter what your age is, always be sure to pick a hairstyle that looks amazing on you. If Helen Mirren can rock a bob in her 70’s, there’s no need for you to shy away from picking a daring hair style that will look amazing on you.
