Some women embrace the lines on their face as telling their life story, and others couldn’t be prouder when they gain their first grey hair! However, let’s face it, tell-tale signs of ageing aren’t so warmly welcomed by the majority of women.
If you’ve found yourself in this predicament, then look no further! Here we’ve compiled three of the best age-defying haircuts ready for you to take to the salon and try.
A common place that women first begin to get lines on their face is their forehead, and if you have straight hair parted down the middle there’s no way of covering this up, so this is a great trick to help you look younger and cover up those unwanted lines in an instant – no botox required!
Most people believe that bangs only suit younger women with long hair and big eyes, but why shouldn’t bangs suit an older woman?
There are many different styles of bangs nowadays, so take a trip to your local hair stylist and ask which they think would suit you. My favorite is a straight bang cut into a hard even line just above the eyes, or softer sweeping bangs that falls to one side.
For women living some decades ago, when they reached a certain age it was customary to have all of their luscious long locks cut into a shorter style, and it was almost unheard of for an older woman to keep her long hair. As we age, hair thins and this is all the more visible on longer hair.
However, by layering the hair you can make your face look years younger and keep your beautiful mane.
Most women with long hair will just pull it into a ponytail for day to day activities and don’t bother with regular trims or styling, meaning the hair is left to grow at its own rate. This tends to end with women having long hair all cut to one length, which isn’t a problem until they start getting lines on their face – this style is flat and limp, highlighting the worst features of your face.
A simple way to salvage this without losing your length is to have some face framing layers cut into that lovely long hair. This will take weight off the main part of the hair, stopping it from ‘dragging down’ the face, and will emphasize other features such as big eyes. With layers, longer hair also moves more freely and will bounce around for a gorgeous, youthful look!
A Short Bob
A simply hairstyle that suits almost every face is a bob, and there are so many different kinds of bobs out there now that you can choose the style you think would suit you best.
A short bob can hide thinning of the hair as it is usually cut into layers, especially an inverted bob that adds volume to the back and frames the face at the front. A longer bob can look lifeless, but just buy a curling wand to add some loose, sexy waves!
Having a lightweight hairstyle rather than heavy, long hair will stop the hair from pulling your face down, and will seem so much lighter that you might just feel younger on the inside too!
