Finding hairstyles to look younger sure beats rolling the dice with Botox, ending up with a “frozen face” that you might be anything but happy with – and unable to showcase your displeasure because of the Botox in the first place!
Here are some of the best haircuts that make you look younger without ever having to go under the surgeon’s scalpel.
Shine up your luscious locks
Just a small amount of shine serum is more than enough to brighten up your style and make you look years younger at the same time.
Soft and your appearance with bangs
Soft, wispy, and swooped bangs give you a more dimensional look while shaving years off of your appearance. This is definitely one of the best haircuts to look younger with.
Mess things up a little bit
Bed head is back in a big way, and messy braids in particular help much more women roll back the clock a little bit and win the war against Father Time. This is one of those hairstyles to look younger at 40 for sure!
Get inspiration from the ocean
Wavy hairstyles – particularly short wavy hairstyles, like a bob – are going to add a lot of dimensionality to your face, a lot of youthfulness to your appearance, and a lot of fun to your hairstyle that may have started to feel a little flat.
Pixie cuts done right are like the Fountain of Youth
This is one of those short hairstyles to look younger that can be a bit of a mixed bag, so you want to be sure that you have a fee structure for a pixie cut before you dive right in. Seamless and blending layers are the way to go to look younger if you have what it takes to pull off a pixie.
Helen Mirren is perfect inspiration
Helen Mirren has been rocking a cropped bob cut for years now, and it’s helped her to maintain the kind of sex appeal that she has had four more decades than we are comfortable talking about. This is a kind of cut that shake things up quite a bit and have you looking years younger by the time you walk out your hair salon.
Frame your face with highlights
You don’t necessarily have to go with a sunbleached or surfer look to roll back the clock, but when you frame your face with soft, nuanced, and gentle highlights you’re able to project a much more youthful glow without having to do anything to your complexion. This is a game changer, but is subtle enough to work with your favorite hairstyle as well.
