It’s no secret that we often use our hairstyles to help define our age. Young women often opt for fun, trendy styles, while older women often choose more classic looks. While there are no hard and fast rules, there are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a hairstyle that can help you look younger. Here is why your hairstyle can make you look older – and what you can do about it!
Nowadays, everyone is more and more conscious of their appearance and trying to look younger. However, we do not realize that many things we do affect our looks in a bad way. This needs to change, and we should start focusing on the right parts of our bodies when it comes to grooming and hairstyle. Some might ask: “Why do I need to do that? And how can hairstyle affect my appearance and age?” Here is a list of reasons why stylizing your hair and grooming it in the right way will help you look younger. Let’s find out.
Can a haircut make you look older?
Haircuts can play a big role in how young or old you look. While some people may feel like they need to change their hairstyle often, it’s important to remember that a drastic change can sometimes have the opposite effect of what you were hoping for. We’ll take a closer look at how haircuts can make women look older and some tips on avoiding this.
According to a recent study, the answer is yes. Researchers looked at photos of men and women before and after they got haircuts and found that, on average, people looked about one-and-a-half years older after getting a haircut. So, before you go ahead and chop off your locks, be sure to consider whether a new style will make you look older.
What makes you look older short or long hair?
Have you ever wondered if the length of your hair affects how old people think you look? A recent study by scientists asked exactly that question. According to their research, women with long hair are typically judged as looking two years older than their actual age, while those with short hair are typically considered younger than they are. So, what’s the verdict? Should you chop off your locks and go for a more youthful look? Or is it better to just let your hair grow long and embrace those fine lines and wrinkles?
Longer hairstyles tend to make you look older because they are often high maintenance. They usually require daily washing/conditioning, regular trims every 6-8 weeks (more frequently if dry or curly), more time to style, and/or more product usage. These are all things that take away from your time, energy, and money.
Short haircuts do not require daily washing, so they are easy to care for, giving you more free time. They also require less work when styling because there isn’t as much hair to deal with, which gives you more free time. With short styles, there is also less concern about using too much product (since you don’t need as much) and the risk of weighing down your hair if it’s fine or limp, which gives you more money!
