Other than going gray, there are several other ways your hair might add years to your look.
You have an all-one-length cut
Our hair thins as we age. Hairstyle without layers and depth will lack volume and loose that magical, youthful "movement". Layers remove weight from the bottom half of your hair so your hair can swing and bounce adding energy to your look.
Blunt edges accentuate lines in your face, layers have a softening effect. Consider side-swept bangs if you want to make your face look a bit rounder and your cheekbones stronger.
You use way too much hair styling products
Trying to build volume by applying too much hair products? Mousse, gel or hairspray can give the hair lift for a few hours, but they also make it look stiff and mask the natural hair shine which some hair stylists call it a very aging combination. If you have a well-layered haircut that's not too heavy at the bottom, a dollop of lightweight mousse will be sufficient to lift the top part to achieve a more voluminous look. Rub a drop of Argan oil for shine and nourishment.
If budget allows, you may try HairMax Laser Band
to stimulate new hair growth for increased density and fullness.
Your hair color is too light
Your skin loses color with age. Instead of going all blond, try darker base with warm tone highlights to add depth and dimension to your hair style. Avoid cool tone such as platinum and beige which can make your skin look pale and tired.
You have dry hair and split ends
As you get older, your hair loses not only pigment but also its ability to retain moisture. Apply conditioner after every hair wash, a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week and don't shampoo more than every other day. Get frequent trims to avoid split ends. Tools such as The Splitender Pro
will be a valuable tool to have helping you to efficiently trim 1/4' or 1/8' of an inch of every single strand of your hair between hair stylist visits.
You have a deep, dark hair color
Solid black or brown hair can appear wig-like. Dark hair also highlight shadows on the face, drawing attention to lines and bags. If you're fair-skinned, a dark hair color also accentuates the contrast between your hair and scalp making grey roots, thinning around the parting or forehead more noticeable. A few highlights around the face and at the crown of the head add softness and make a dark hair color appear more natural.
Your hair is super-straight
Long straight hair may make your face look long and drawn. Even if you prefer a long hair look, avoid length longer than rib length. If you have naturally fine, straight hair, other than using volumizing shampoo, ask your stylist for long layers. Use a round brush to create soft curls at the ends of the hair; setting dry hair with Velcro rollers will also create softness and add volume to offset any drooping in the lower face. To avoid heat damage, apply artnaturals Thermal Shield from mid-length onward for protection and to add shine.
