The Secret To Looking 10 Years Younger


Here’s the thing about getting older; your perspective, needs, priorities, and style changes. You don’t care about being someone else because you’re already who you are and you’re not about impressing others, but rather about being comfortable with who you are and how you look. You are a woman of class, sophistication, and professionalism. Guess where it all starts? With your hair. We aren’t joking, either. Your hairstyle can transform your face and give you a more youthful look, what, you think all celebrities just rely on cosmetic surgery? These hairstyles will give you a fresh, youthful look, all without breaking the bank.

Hairstyles have come and gone over the years. There are those that, trust me, we’re more than happy to see go and never come back. Not sure what I’m talking about? What about mullets? Yeah, that’s what I thought, although we do know of a few brave souls out there still sporting that look. See, as we get older our hairstyles seem to change. That’s not a bad thing, but we do sometimes need a bit of guidance as to which direction they should be going. Once again there is the exception of those people who haven’t changed their hairdo since they were in preschool. Kind of frightening if you ask me, but hey, we’re all trying to hang onto some part of our youth.

When we imagine getting a makeover we think of pouring out canals of cash to get it done. But the truth is that it does not have to be that way; it doesn’t have to become an activity that requires you to speak to a personal financial advisor – it’s your hair not Trump Tower for goodness sake! Speaking of Trump, perhaps he has a secret about his hair that he’s keeping from us, but that’s a discussion for another time.

This slideshow is here to give you a new look at hairstyles that can make you look years younger, but also there’s more than that. It’s not just about how you look, but also and even more so about how you feel. These easy and cost-friendly hairstyles are intended to give you the confidence to be you! As Oscar Wilde says, “Be yourself, everyone else is already taken!” Now let’s get started.

Choppy Layers

When you have multiple, uneven layers, they’re known as choppy layers. They create volume and counteract gauntness but be careful about the length, as the sides should be no more than half an inch shorter than the back. It needs to be proportional around the head.

Choppy Layers

Choppy Layers

Almost all of the choppy haircuts are created for short hair and are mainly performed through a bob, pixie or A-line cuts. However they can make a totally new fresh impression. Plus, contrasting textures and lines with some color enhancers will take your hairstyle to new heights.

Asymmetrical Bob

Meet the classic asymmetrical bob with a twist. You’ll feel modern, fresh, and edgy with your cropped look in the back and a smidgen longer look at the front. Wear your look straight or wavy, you can’t go wrong.

However remember that if you really want to make an impact, then the asymmetry in bobs are super significant. If you keep one side the same as the other, it will go by unnoticed.

Chestnut Color Or Chocolate Color With Highlights

There are times when it isn’t the cut aging you but rather the color of your hair. If you want to look a bit younger then go for a lighter look, something like chestnut or chocolate, add some highlights and boom. You look younger already.

Plus the chestnut color gives off a warm, reddish-brown color which adds a more youthful look to your overall face shape. Who needs plastic surgery when all you need is a hair color change up?

Choppy Bob

If you have a heart or oval face shape then this choppy bob is a life saver, you definitely don’t need to turn to a face lift. Just be sure to not get too many layers! Make sure you tell your stylist to cut your hair while it’s dry for accurate placement of layers.

Cameron Diaz is a great example of a choppy bob done right. Plus, here’s the best part a choppy bob is super low-maintenance chic with a bedhead look. Whether you have have wavy or fine straight hair, as it requires virtually no daily styling, you’re set.

Grown Out Cropped Hair

When you go for this look, make sure to keep the length just above the collar bone for a youthful look. If it gets longer then that, a trim is needed. Did we mention it’s cheaper then a face lift? Or does that go without saying?

Water is your best friend when it comes to maintaining the grown out chopped look. Just fill a spritzer bottle full with water and then spray evenly to get your hair wet but not soaked. Just let your hair air-dry as well.

Layered Bob

This look is a classic, the layers help frame your face. If you’ve got a more angular face shape, then be sure to tell your stylist to cut your bob chin-length. If you have naturally tight curls (guilty), you will probably need a bit more layering.

Layered Bob

When you add in some choppy, layered sections, you add even more sass and chicness to the overall look. Furthermore always be sure to go to a stylist who has experience with layering bobs. Very important.

Layered Side Swept Bangs Shoulder Length

Sometimes hair gets a bit limp and if this happens, go for this style immediately. It will cause emphasis on your eyes and will give you slight volume within all the layers.

“…you want light, wispy layers in the front starting just below the cheekbone and continuing all the way down,” said the hairstylist Mark Townsend of the Marie Robinson Salon in the Big Apple.

Long and Layered

Are you picking up on the hint? Layers tend to work with just about every face shape and frame. Doesn’t matter if you have super straight hair or a wild curly mane, this look works for all shapes. If you want to opt for a younger look then go for length that is just passing the shoulders.

Just let our girl Jessica Biel drive the point home, her hair is the perfect example of the long and layered look. Plus she’s a huge advocate for natural beauty, no cosmetic surgery needed here, ladies!

Long Blonde Bob

You want to try to be a blonde? Get the long blonde bob then, no really. It’ll make you look tons younger even if you’re not actually a blonde. The look is more conservative and it’s a look you can use from day to night, without losing sophistication.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a plain lob which is about chin-length, it works. It is not a high maintenance look and it’s far more versatile than you think.

Long Layered Pixie Cut

If you want to look sophisticated and polished then go for the longer version of the pixie cut. It gives hair a fuller look while the style draws more attention to the face. This does mean you can grow out your hair without worry.

Long Layered Pixie Cut

Now this is a look that is also appropriate for thin hair. However your locks could appear wispy when cut straight, or those with a round base line. Try to layer your hair in various lengths and you’ll gain tons of volume too.

Pixie Bob With Stacked Side Bang

Our hair tends to get thinner as we age, chalk it up to stress or hormones, but it’s pretty inevitable. If you want to fix that (because why wouldn’t you) then go for the pixie bob with a stacked side bang. It keeps things fresh and edgy but not too edgy that your kids will cower in shame.

When you have a stacked side bang, your locks come over-flowing with bounce and energy. And if that’s not the definition of youth, we don’t know what is.

Pixie

When you go for a pixie cut, you’re pretty daring. No really, it doesn’t make you look much younger then you are but you feel like a different woman. You can even wear your hair all messy, bed head hair, and you’ll still look fresh.

Robin Wright (Forrest Gump and House of Cards, anyone?) is rocking the pixie cut. I mean, Audrey Hepburn would be proud!

Short Cropped Hairstyle

This look is different then a pixie cut because the short chopped cut gives longer layers on top or bangs. Meaning you look a bit more edgy and youthful while not chopping off almost all your hair.

Shoulder Length Layers

This is a look anyone can pull off. You can wear your hair straight or wavy, and it doesn’t require constant attention to pull off looking chic and sophisticated. It frames your face in a flattering light while appearing thin, yet deceptively full.

Wavy Bob

A wavy bob is chin-length so it helps to elongate the neck. Skip bangs or opt for soft bangs as they will offer the illusion of fuller roots. It’s also far more stylish to give your hair a rumpled texture, rather then straight or way too curly.

Wavy Bob

This look is also super easy to style. Just use a large barrel curling iron that has no clamp and wrap large portions of hair around once or twice. Hold onto the end of the hair piece so that it does not get curled. Curl only the midshaft so that it takes even less time.

Wispy Lob

The wispy lob offers a length that skims the collarbone (forget plastic surgery) and has wispy pieces – yes, that’s how the name came to be. The pieces grazing the collarbone slim the face down. Now who doesn’t want that?

Angled Bob

So an angled bob that just grazes the bottom of your jawline gives you an edgy look and is alwbrays the right anti-ageing haircut ladies. If you have fine hair then you should cut the ends in a blunt way as this gives the illusion that your hair is thicker.

Mod Coif

If you’ve got short hair then this look is for you. This looks helps to balance facial features and creates flattering symmetry! All you need is a few drops of pure argan oil in order to add shine and smooth out your hair. Once your hair is completely dry, use a finishing spray for a textured look but with moderate control.

Steven Pearlman, MD, from New York City who is a facial plastic surgeon, says, “A style with this kind of volume helps to balance facial features and create flattering symmetry.”

The Undone Bob

This shaggy look helps to create a more youthful look, which is the goal here. To get the look you need to boost your roots with a volumizing mousse, such as Suave Volumizing Mousse but before you blow dry, be sure to follow up with a small curling iron. This will create a slight wave near the ends!

Yes, this is a look that is best suited for short hair. However seeing as how it’s low-maintenance, you can learn a lot of mastering this look.

The classic pixie, when its done right, it helps to highlight a strong bone structure. And a haircut is much better alternative then a pricey plastic surgery. With this classic, short hairstyle you look great and don’t need salon color either.

Piece Y Pixie

Style this look with volume spray but all over so that it provides lift to the roots and adds volume, then finish the look off with a hair paste (like Redken Rough Paste 12 Working Material).

Amped-Up Layers

Amped-up layers create fullness just above the cheekbones which in turn narrows the jawline and brings attention to the eyes. Another added bonus is this look frames the face and helps thinner hair appear fuller.

Amped Up Layers

Amped Up Layers

Be sure to use a volumizing spray on damp hair for the added fullness. The goal after this is to create as much lift as you possibly can by lifting roots and drying them upwards. When your hair is dry, add a touch of finishing spray, and you can also wind sections around a large curling iron in alternating directions for a more tousled look.

Romantic Waves

Did you know that soft waves help reverse the effects of facial volume loss that comes with age? So what you want to do to get that soft, feminine, youthful look is to wind sections of your hair in various sizes (as you don’t want the sections too perfect) around a large-barrel iron, or just twist 1″ sections of hair as you blow dry. When you’re all done, be sure to pull pieces of your hair forward and around your face.

MD Heidi Waldorf, an associate clinical professor at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine in its dermatology department says, “Volume loss makes your face shape look more rectangular, with sharp angles that are more masculine than the classic female heart-shaped face.”

Low Chignon

A chignon help to show off the angle of the jaw, this is crucial in showcasing a more youthful look and it flatters the contour of the face as well. Start off with a diagonal side part that starts above one eye and runs back to the middle of the top of your head. Then be sure to gather all of your hair at the nape of your neck and begin to loosely twist it into a low bun. Then secure the look with bobby pins around the chignon.

“A chignon shows off the angle of the jaw, which can be a very youthful and flattering contour of the face,” reveals Whitney Bowe, an MD from New York City, who is a dermatologist that specializes in skin rejuvenation.

Flipped Ends

Okay ladies, this one is pretty important. Women over 40 tend to almost always look far more feminine with mid-length hair that has a youthful and lively movement on the ends. If you have stiff and overdone volume to your hair then you’ll only look “outdated.” If you have medium length hair, the flipped ends are for you.

Flipped Ends

Flipped Ends

The best and easiest way you can avoid the stiffness is to use a round brush to subtly flip the ends of your hair, alternating between flipped up and flipped under as you blow dry. Pretty simple!

Braided Crown

A braided crown creates a subtle but rather effective pull on the facial skin for a faux lifted look so forget the face lift, just get a crown. If you’re not sure how to get the look then follow along with these instructions – it’s quite simple to follow. Part your hair, wet or dry, right down the middle and into two pigtails, secure each end with a hair tie. Then remove the ties in order to braid each tail, then re-secure the ends with hair ties. Next, you need to take a braided pigtail and cross it over the top of your head to the opposite side. Finally, secure with hairpins and do the exact same with the other braid.

Braided Crown

MD Diane Walder from Miami is a cosmetic dermatologist who said, “…this style creates a subtle but effective pull on facial skin for a faux lifted look.”

Twisted Bun

If you have long hair, turn to this modern twist to create the idea of elongating the sides of your face as they draw the eye up from the cheekbones and all the way to the fullness of the crown. Try to wash your hair the day before so that the natural oils and live-in texture will offer a better grip. Add texturizing powder to your roots before you pull your hair back into a high but loose ponytail. Then, use both of your hands (important) to gently twist the ponytail’s end into a bun.

Twisted Bun

Twisted Bun

“A modern twist creates a beautiful profile, elongating the sides of your face by drawing your eye up from the cheekbones all the way to the fullness of the crown,” Parrilli (the hair stylist) said.

High Ponytail

A high ponytail draws the eyes up and gives facial skin a gentle upward lift, a free face lift if you will. Just lightly tease the hair around the crown of your head for extra volume. But do this before you gather your hair some 1-2 inches above eye level at the back of your head. Make sure that you leave out a few pieces of hair to help frame the face before tying it securely.

High Ponytail

High Ponytail

Bowe says of the high ponytail, “When we’re young, our faces look like an upside-down triangle—with the widest part, stretching across the eyes and the point at the chin.” She adds, “As we age, that triangle turns upside down, as gravity pulls the cheeks down and creates shadows on our lower face.”

Low Ponytail

The low, pulled pony helps create a subtle yet, centralized pull on the skin which lifts the cheeks and boosts the brow. Again, a natural and free face lift. This will draw attention up and create a natural face lift around the forehead and eyes.

Low Ponytail

Low Ponytail

Start off by teasing your hair, then gather it into a ponytail some 1-2 inches above the nape of your neck. Next, split the ponytail into halves, one should be a top half and one a bottom half. Then tease the back of the top section of your hair to boost the pony’s volume.

Top Knot

You guessed it, a top knot quite literally lifts your face and helps draw attention to the cheeks and eyes. Just look at Jenny from the Block to drive the point home. The secret to the perfect top knot is with hair that hasn’t been washed in a day or two.

Top Knot

Top Knot

Spritz a hair refresher or some dry shampoo onto roots in order to absorb excess oil. Do this before you brush the hair into a very high ponytail and secure it with a hair band. To finish, take the pony, twist it into a very tight knot, and pin into place with bobby pins.

Beachy Waves

If you have an uneven tone or texture of the skin (acne scars or brown marks) then soft curls are the answer as they distract from those skin irregularities. Be sure to curl sections of your hair with a large-barrel iron and roll each section, securing with a clip to set. Once cooled, let them down and finger comb just a bit. However, do NOT, we repeat, do not add hairspray!

Beachy Waves

Beachy Waves

“If you have acne scars or brown marks, soft curves reflect light in a way that distracts from those skin irregularities,” Bowe says. Moreover Mariano says, “Tight, structured, shellacked curls not only look dated but make your features appear sharper and harsh.”

When avoiding hairspray, you want to have free-flowing and touchable curls which offer soft features and even make hair look healthier. Just use Demi Moore as an example.

Soft Bangs

Not only do bangs help hide forehead wrinkles but if you sweep them over to the side, you are draings attention to the outsides of your cheekbones, which helps give the illusion of a wider face and more youthful fullness.

Soft Bangs

If you gently arch fringe then you show off soft, feminine features. Bangs can help a circular face appear fuller, so getting the right bangs for the right shape is crucial.
