One of the major characteristics of youth is it’s wild and fun. So don’t always go prim and proper. Add some haphazard texture, some rumples, layers to replicate your ‘young at heart’ persona. But be a little careful with volumes, too much of it can do the opposite.

7. Highlights and Ombre

Sometimes, sticking with the same color for a long time can make you look outdated. it’s not the cut that makes you look outdated. Your jet black hair can add to your age if you have a very fair skin tone. Mixing up few subtle colors and placing the highlights carefully is the key to achieve a more youthful look. Don’t follow the trends too much, color and highlight your hair with shades that suites your personality while naturally making you look younger. Coloring and highlighting are instant hairstyle updates without chopping length off.

As much as we love to run our fingers through the freshly chopped hair a bad hairstyle can ruin all that confidence and make us looking older than we are. But there’s a silver lining which is we can easily fix that without a lot of time or money.  A session with our favorite hairstylist and we are all set!
