In addition to make-up and clothes, hair can also cheat away for a few years. How? We asked a master hairdresser and present the best hairstyles that make you look younger.
If you want to look younger, you should start at the top: with your hair. Master hairdresser Giulia Hiller also confirms this: "You can easily look younger with a cut, color, styling, and a healthy look." One example is the ponytail. Tied high and tight, the braid not only looks youthful but also visually lifts the face. So that the hair always looks well-groomed, conditioner should be used every time you wash your hair. Hair oil is recommended for radiant shine.
When it comes to hairstyles that make you look younger, hair color also plays a major role, especially blonde. If you are naturally a darker type, it is better to use highlights instead of complete bleaching. Either way, hair color almost always has a rejuvenating effect. The master hairdresser explains it like this: “The darker the hair color, the stricter a woman often comes across. Also, dark hair frames the face more, which makes us appear older. Light hair, on the other hand, opens up the face.” After all, it's no coincidence that top model Claudia Schiffer, Hollywood star Nicole Kidman or pop icon Madonna still don't part with their blonde manes.
Of course, the optimal rejuvenation hairstyle always depends on the shape and contours of the face. However, there are some looks that can magically take a few years away from almost every woman.
The hair swings around the face and achieves a younger look. A graduated cut at the front flatters the contours of the face and brings movement to the hair. With a few layers, the whole hairstyle automatically looks more voluminous. Jennifer Aniston loves the look and always wears her hair slightly layered:
Whenever part of the hair falls in the face, it looks youthful and fresh. The hairstylist advises curtain bangs: "These are loose bangs that cover the forehead a little but the hair falls gently outwards so it doesn't look too severe". The bangs playfully hide wrinkles on the forehead. Heidi Klum has long relied on casual curtain bangs:
If the hair is simply not that full and healthy anymore, a bob or – if you don’t want to lose quite as much length – a long bob can help. The hair immediately has more volume. Now and then a few waves or a side parting loosen up the hairstyle even more. Victoria Beckham's favorite hairstyle: A long bob with waves:
As we age, the hair also becomes thinner and more fragile. Hair that is too long therefore quickly looks unkempt. Combined with a middle parting, the look can optically lengthen the face. This is especially true for women with very straight hair. "Straight hair looks stricter and everything that conveys strictness makes us look older," says Giulia Hiller, "that's why it's important to bring something playful and movement into the hairstyle." This can be achieved by one of the looks described above, but also with different parting, waves, and messy hairstyles.
