5 Hair Mistakes That Are Actually Making You Look 5 Years Older

February 16, 2018 by Lisa Fogarty
shefinds | beauty

A really good haircut or fresh color can do wonders for your complexion and state of mind. A modern cut or color that incorporates newer techniques can subtract years from your appearance and bring out the glow in your skin. But the opposite is also true: hair mistakes can cost you by adding years back on.

If you’ve had the same hair style for years (or decades), haven’t explored new color and highlight options, or can’t remember the last time you had a haircut, you may be making one of these five hair mistakes that are actually making you look five years older.

Cher

Really Long Hair

After a certain age, if your hair is extremely long and isn't layered to frame your face, you risk it making your face look longer and drawn downward. As our skin naturally ages and sags a bit, a too-long, one-layer style can look too harsh. If you love your long hair, try cutting a few long layers or even experimenting with fringe if you feel it suits your face. 

Kelly Clarkson

Stripey Highlights

There was a time, not long ago, when bold, stripey highlights were all the rage. Unfortunately, that time has passed and if you're still rocking the old trend you may be dating yourself. Today's highlights rely more on a natural balayage technique that blends your highlights into your natural hair color. If you miss bold color, ask for a few foils around your face. 

Jennifer Aniston

Celebrity Hair Styles From Years Ago

Still sporting Jennifer Aniston's "The Rachel" haircut from Friends or Winona Ryder's pixie cut? (Actually, ditch that last one. Ryder's pixie is always a good idea). Depending on the style you're set on, you could be telling the world that your taste is stuck in the '80s or '90s and isn't budging anytime soon. Just as both of these splendid actresses changed up their styles and looked fabulous, consider updating your own look to something more modern. 

Megan Fox

Hair That's Too Dark And All One Shade

Goth is gorgeous. But one solid hair color, especially if it's very dark and lacks highlights and depth, can be extremely aging. Our skin gets more sallow with age, which is why a little burst of lightness in the hair helps wake up the complexion and make it glow.

Hair That Is Long, Thin, And Flat

Most people deal with thinning hair as they age. And a lot of us simply don't have a ton of volume in our hair, either. Keeping your hair long and flat, however, will make hair seem even thinner. A blunt cut or lob will create an amazing amount of body in your hair and changing up your part or adding long fringe can also take years off.
