From tired, faded hair colours to dull haircuts, there are several ways that a wrong hairstyle could be making us look older than we actually are. Check out these 5 age-reversal hair tips shared by the team at Chez Vous Hair Salon.
One of the most effective tricks for turning back time is framing one's face with highlights. Think about it, which brings more attention to a photo, a black frame or a light-coloured frame? Definitely a dark-coloured frame, right?
Similarly, our hair acts like a photo frame to our face. Extreme dark-coloured hair usually emphasizes our skin imperfections and flaws, whereas a 1 to 2 shade lighter hair can create a youthful vibe.
Strong, shiny and defined hair looks youthful, no matter what age. Our daily homecare matters! Similar to our skincare regime, our hair needs a 3-step daily routine as well (shampoo, masque and leave-in serum). If your hair has already been badly damaged, opt for Chez Vous’ Hair Botox & Fillers semi-permanent therapy programme to breathe life back into your hair - guaranteed. Starts from $405.
Layers soften the features and take attention away from wrinkles and trouble spots. It also creates the much-needed volume most women need when they age. Bottom-heavy hair can drag our face down, adding age to our look, making our face appear droopy.
Most viewers will agree that the one on the left side is seemingly "saggy-ier", whereas the face on the right seems "fuller".
With the right layering by an experienced hairstylist, one can redistribute the weight of the hair back to the crown, making the face appear more awake and youthful.
When all else fails, go for a Bob! It opens up one's face and brings out one’s cheekbones, creating an ever-classic yet contemporary vibe. If youthful facial plumpness is a thing of the past for you, avoid opting for a blunt Bob. Instead, go for a layered Bob coupled with subtle side-swept bangs that will soften the forehead, as well as frame the face, making it appear fuller and fresher.
Avoid blunt bangs as it can call unnecessary attention to puffiness and lines around one's eyes, and they tend to box-in our face rather than opening it up.
Side-swept or layered bangs - they're elegant, not schoolgirl. Soft bangs cover our hairline and draw focus away from any fine lines on our face, creating a soft, timeless look.
Sometimes, the key to a younger image is to avoid unflattering, long and stick-straight hair around our face.
If our hair is well-maintained (i.e. it is not brittle or dry), opt for soft curls. These curls create buoyancy and add life to our look, and definitely goes right along with a youthful attitude.
