Everyone has bad hair days. But there are actually hairstyles that make us look older. We show you the difference using star images.
Women love to try different looks. Open hair, light waves, curls or a ponytail, or a strict bun. But beware! In addition to hairstyles that make you look younger straight away, there are also hairstyles that will "age" you by a few years. Hair color also plays a role.
We show you the young versus old looks using the example of the stars. Curtain up for the great - and indirect comparison of the rather suboptimal hairstyles of Olivia Palermo, Jessica Biel, or Taylor Swift.
Olivia Palermo is always very stylish. Every hairstyle (actually) fits her.
...but unfortunately not this strict middle parting that she tied in a deep braid. With this hairstyle - in combination with the rather tough make-up - the style icon looks a few years older than it actually is.
Sienna Miller is, among other things, a fashion designer and knows what makes her shine. This fresh bun in combination with red lipstick, for example.
This look, on the other hand, is not ideal. Sienna's haircut is out of shape and the color makes her look pale.
Jessica Alba is a sought-after actress and has (style) experience on the red carpet. With her hair tied back, she looks young, fresh, and relaxed.
Jessica Alba looks less relaxed with this hairstyle. The long bob lets your face appear visually and the (too) dark color gradient suddenly makes it look older.
Straight and open hair looks particularly good on Alessandra Ambrosio. The delicate hair accessories also make you shine.
The curly comparison: The wavy hair makes the model look older and the hair color is also not optimal. Lighter hair gives the Brazilian a fresher touch.
Jessica Biel became famous with the television series "A Heavenly" Family. This picture could come from the series time: The light waves fall a little over the shoulder of the actress and make Justin Timberlake's wife look younger.
But what happened here? The updo not only makes Jessica Biel older, but it also accentuates her slightly angular face.
"Naturally blonde" and naturally beautiful. Reese Witherspoon convinces with waves that only lie lightly on the head. This brings movement into the hair, that makes you young.
It is precisely this movement that is missing here. Without volume in her hair, the likable blonde looks older.
Alexis Bledel not only convinces us as Rory Gilmore but also with this natural look. The hair is slightly curled and looks wonderful on the actress.
It's a shame that she now apparently has a different stylist: the sloping bangs look lost, the hair has no hair. It works better, Miss Bledel!
The singer is a real all-round talent. With this hairstyle, Taylor Swift is not only rocking the stage, but also our hairstyle gallery.
The sloping bangs look like they are glued tight and the deep ponytail takes away the rocky feel of the singer. Our favorite: open and shorter!
The messy bun looks extremely good on Lena.
Hair and make-up make the singer look older at this event.
Julianne Hough knows how to style her hair for the perfect appearance. And also that it is naturally beautiful.
Unfortunately, the middle part makes the beautiful dancer older.
TV queen Rachel Bilson is a real eye-catcher. Especially your hair! Slightly graduated at the front, they accentuate your face perfectly.
However, this braid doesn't create any "summer" feelings at all.
After the filming of "Gossip Girl" was over, Leighton Meester had his hair cut. Right decision! Because the bob conjures up at least 3 years.
That was not always so. Stay away from the curling iron, Leighton!
