So, the case is cracked! We’ve officially found the culprit that’s making you look older than you are. Girl, we’re talking about your hair.

We are here to make sure you stop making these common hair mistakes and look perfectly your age. Wait, strike that. A few years younger, because why not?

Getting a wrong haircut
 

Getting a wrong haircut

The wrong length or a bad haircut is every woman’s worst nightmare. But what’s worse is that the wrong haircut can make you look older. If you have curly hair, don’t go too short; Try a lob or blunt bob if you have round face and wish to flaunt short hair. Also, it’s always better to add layers to your hair rather than stick to a boring U-cut.

Dying your hair seems to be the best option when you want cover up those greys or change your look. But are you picking the right colour for your skin tone? Avoid jet black for your hair, especially if you have fair skin tone, as it makes you look older. Try highlights by mixing up a light shade with your natural hair colour.

Sporting the wrong parting

Just like the same haircut doesn’t suit every face shape, a side hair parting or a centre parting doesn’t flatter everyone. Centre-parted hair is most suited for oval and long-shaped faces, while a side parting complements round, square and rectangular face shapes. Also, rather than a dramatic side parting, go for a slightly off-centre side parting.

Not changing up your hair

The biggest mistake you could be making is sticking with the same hairstyle or haircut for years. Let us tell you that it isn’t making you look any younger, but only ageing you. Constantly spicing up your look can really work in your favour and take a few years off your face. Get bangs or add accessories; basically experiment once in a while to look (and feel) younger.
