You probably stick to what you know when you go to the hair salon. We get it, sometimes it takes a leap of faith to test out a new hairstyle-- especially one that requires chopping off many inches. However, you should consider how your hair looks for your age. According to a hairstylist, there's one hairstyle that can actually age you.
Super long hair may give you the same feeling as a security blanket would. No matter how many years pass by, you just can't give it up. This hairstyle takes time and effort, yet it's also relatively easy to manage since you can just throw it up into a ponytail or bun on bad hair days. However, one expert hairstylist says this look could be making you look older.
Hairdresser Paul Labrecque tells Good Housekeeping that you should avoid having super long tresses. Super long hair has the effect of pulling your face down with it-- which is probably the complete opposite of what you want if you're already aging. Paul recommends asymmetrical haircuts since they "deflect attention away from wrinkles," he says.
Just because it may be time for a haircut doesn't mean that you need to let go of your hair length entirely. Try to find a happy medium by cutting your hair into a longer bob. That way, you have shape to your hair while still being able to style it in many different ways. No one is trying to tell you that you should go from super long hair to a short pixie cut just like that.
At the end of the day, pick the hairstyle that makes you the happiest-- and that you feel the most comfortable with.
