Staying classy with the changing times can be tough sometimes. We all have our favourite hairstyle and, as time passes, changing it feels like we are losing a part of ourselves. However, there’s one thing to keep in mind. As you get older, the amount of hair you have and its quality changes. As a result, the hairstyle you adopted in your twenties or thirties may not be as flattering in your forties. So how do you change your hairstyle without going through a difficult trial and error period? Read on to learn more about some flattering hairstyles that shave years off your appearance.
If you’ve been clinging on to your long hair, going for the chop and opting for a pixie cut may seem too bold. The idea of suddenly swapping long flowing locks for hair that barely reaches the shoulders can make you think twice about picking this simple hairstyle. So why should you? A pixie cut is a bold step and is one way of completely altering the way you look. It makes little difference whether you go for the clean or messy pixie; it works either way. If you’re looking for a transformative change in your appearance, then the pixie cut is the way to go. As the seasons turn and get warmer, it’s the perfect time to make the change.
Shoulder Length Layered Side-Swept Bangs
Fighting lack of volume as your hair experiences natural thinning can feel like a never-ending battle. Oftentimes, you’ll end up using volumising products in a bid to add lift to limp hair. One perfect hairstyle for adding body to your hair is the layered side-swept bangs. This is ideal if you have long hair but don’t want to take a drastic step by going for the pixie or other short cuts. Through side sweeping, the bangs hairstyle opens up and frames your face, shifting focus and emphasis to your eyes. It’s a difficult style to perfect at home, so it’s worth spending the money on a visit to your stylist for a professional job.
Voluminised And Straight
What if you’re unwilling to sacrifice your long hair for the pixie or any other style that involves chopping your locks? With the voluminous and straight hairstyle, you don’t have to. You can keep your shoulder-length hair while introducing volume by shifting your part. Whatever your hair type, layering your hair and framing your face is vital for creating a flattering look. Keeping your hair at shoulder length creates an appearance of fullness and volume, a marked contrast to that flat-hair look. Top it off with a splash of colour to brighten your appearance and enhance the effect.
Wearing your hair in a high ponytail draws your eyes up, lifting your face gently upwards. Although not quite a facelift, it does have a similar effect, without the need for painful surgery to achieve it! Tease out the hair around the crown of your head to create extra volume before you tie up your ponytail. Leave out a few loose hairs to frame your face before tying the top knot.
Soft bangs are the ideal hairstyle to cover up forehead wrinkles. Bangs also highlight your cheekbones when you sweep them over to the sides. This simple act of framing your facial features creates the appearance of a wider face, adding confidence and strength to your facial features in the process. You can absolutely rely on soft bangs to give you a fuller-face look.
Fancy an eyebrow lift minus the cosmetic procedure? A low ponytail is great at creating a centralised and subtle pull on your face, lifting the cheeks and giving you a temporary eyebrow lift. It’s easy to get this effect. Simply begin by teasing your hair and gently pulling it into a ponytail a few inches above the neck. Split the ponytail into two halves, one at the top and the other at the bottom. Boost the volume in the top ponytail by teasing the hair out a little. This hairstyle keeps the hair out of your face without pulling on it too tightly.
Short Curly Hairstyles
What if you love your natural curls and you don’t want to have to straighten them all the time? You’re in luck: one of the most stunning hairstyles that will flatter you at any age is the short and curly hairstyle. If you currently have long, curly hair and spend a lot of time styling it and getting it to look perfect, shoulder-length is just perfect for making your curly hair manageable and easy to style.
