People say that women who do something drastic with their hair are about to do amazing things! However, some women just want to look a little younger without resorting to cosmetic surgery and other procedures. You can ooze sophistication and class without breaking the bank, and it starts with the hair.
Many women don’t realize that their hairstyles can make them look older. Shave years off your face without having to use extreme measures. We’ve pulled together many options that can give you that youthful look you crave without spending a lot of money!
Do you want to try a pixie cut? It’s a bold move for many, and it doesn’t necessarily make you look younger. However, it does transform you into a different woman because of the way you feel. Whether you want it to be messy or more clean-cut, give it a try!
Layered Shoulder-length Hair with Side-sweeping Bangs
Most women find that their hair gets a little thinner as they age, which is normal. However, you can combat that with this look. The layers offer more volume and body, but the side-sweeping bangs put the emphasis on the eyes!
A layered bob is one of the best options because it flatters your face and frames it correctly. Women with an angular face shape may want to ask for a chin-length bob. However, if you have tight curls, you may require more layering for it to look good.
Everyone can pull off shoulder-length layers. It’s great for women who are on the go all the time because it doesn’t require a lot of maintenance to keep it looking excellent. You can even choose a straight or wavy look, depending on your mood.
A long bob is often seen as the most classic style because it doesn’t go out of fashion. This one is a bit longer at shoulder length, but a chin-length one looks great, too. Plus, it’s not high maintenance unless you feel like styling it differently each day!
Soft Layers and Face-framing Pieces
Women with thin hair should consider this style. The soft layers add more volume to your hair, but they also frame the face to look smaller and thinner. While you could go with plastic surgery to change your face, this is less invasive and cheaper!
Women with heart and oval face shapes will love the choppy bob. You don’t need a facelift to appear younger with this gorgeous hairstyle. Make sure the stylist cuts dry hair because they have to place the layers accurately for it to look right.
Do you like uneven and multiple layers that most of the stars have right now? They often go for that because it doesn’t make the face look gaunt and creates more volume. Just note that this style must be proportional around your head to look good.
Donning a wavy bob can help you elongate the neck if the hair falls to the chin. This makes you seem more youthful! We think soft bangs can provide the illusion of full roots. Plus, it looks best with a rumpled look instead of perfectly styled.
Grown Out Cropped Hair
Many women ask for this style, but some already have cropped hair and want it to grow back. This looks amazing, regardless. Consider keeping the length right above your collarbone to look younger. As it grows, get routine trims!
No woman wants to say, “Quick, get me to the plastic surgery hospital for emergency work!” However, you may feel you need it if you don’t get the wispy lob. The length skims the collarbone, which means it slims the face without the invasive procedure.
Heavy bangs work well because you can’t get them wrong. There’s the appearance of full fringe along the forehead, but that also helps you hide the fine lines. Those in their 30s are sure to love how it flatters their faces.
Long and Layered
Layers look great on all frames and face shapes, so it’s no wonder they’re popular on this list. However, the longer tresses bring a sense of playfulness that makes you look younger. Don’t put your plastic surgeon on speed dial; call the hairstylist!
Long Blonde Bob
Most blonde-haired women say they have more fun than redheads or brunettes. We’re not sure that’s true, but this look does help you appear more youthful. Plus, it’s conservative and sophisticated, so it works for school, work, or a night out with the girls.
Chestnut or Chocolate Color and Highlights
Sometimes, you don’t have to cut your hair at all to look younger! You may want to consider a splash of color. We think that a dark shade like chocolate or chestnut is best, and then you can bring in highlights to brighten it up.
Long Layered Pixie Cut
Some women can’t do the short pixie cut, but they still like the style. This long and layered version is polished and sophisticated. It draws attention to the face and offers a full look. Plus, you don’t have to worry as much about routine trims here.
Curly hair is all the rage, but you might dislike sleeping with rollers or getting up early to do your hair every day. Instead, tack some thick and loose curls to the bottom of your hair to soften your appearance. Get an instant face lift without the knife!
The blunt cut is ideal because it’s versatile, classy, and so easy to maintain. In fact, hair looks healthier and thicker. If you sport this style, make sure it’s cut straight to show sleekness. Then, add some waves if you feel like mixing it all up!
Short Cropped Hairstyle
A short-cropped cut often looks like a pixie to most women, but there are longer layers or bangs. The shortness gives an edgy style without cutting off so much hair. Plus, it’s great if you’re dying to try a pixie and are a little nervous.
Streaked and Stacked
The streaked and stacked style is great for low-maintenance women. Just wake up, comb it, and you’re out the door (after getting dressed.) Plus, you don’t have to go to the stylist as often to retain the shape of the cut.
Pixie Bob and Stacked Side Bang
As you get older, your hair gets thinner. It’s annoying, but you can reverse that effect with the pixie bob and stacked side bang style. It gives you a fresher and more edgy vibe, and it’s not as crazy. Therefore, you can conquer the world with ease!
Wavy lobs were popular in 2017, so most celebrities had them. It just provides a beach vibe you crave, and you look fresh and beautiful. We think soft layers and messy curls are ideal for this style!
Short Bob and Soft Ends
The short bob works well with soft ends, but make sure the stylist cuts it past the chin. Then, the ends, especially the forward edges, should be textured with a point cut to achieve a softer edge! It’s a full hairstyle that looks great on everyone.
Many women like the bob hairstyle, and you should consider the asymmetrical one. It gives you a fresh and edgy appearance in the back, but it’s softer and longer in the front. Plus, you can go straight or wavy and look amazing.
The angled bob can help you look younger if it grazes the bottom of the jawline. We’re not sure why this cut is magical, but it is. Those with fine hair should ask their stylist for a blunt end cut to make it seem thicker than normal.
Volume and Straight
The volume and straight hairstyle doesn’t take much effort to maintain, but you look sophisticated every week. However, volume is the key for the style. You can keep a single part for elegant evenings or part it in many ways for that rock star feeling.
The classic bob can make you look like you received a facelift. This style brings the focus to your nape of the neck and chin. Then, you appear to have a high jawline and raised cheekbones without going under the surgical knife!
Thick Wavy Locks
Beautiful and thick wavy hair is easy to achieve. Simply put your hair in a ponytail and get your curling iron. Grab thick chunks of hair, curling them for a few moments. Once everything is cooled off, take out the ponytail. It’s gorgeous!
High ponytails can gently lift the facial skin and draw the eyes up. Make sure you tease the hair before you put it up about 1 or 2 inches above eye level. Pull out a few pieces to frame your face, and you’re ready for the day!
When it comes to soft bangs, Lea Michele knows what to do. We love this style because it hides those annoying forehead wrinkles without Botox. If you have a thin face, sweep them to the side to highlight the cheekbones and widen things out.
The pulled and low pony creates a subtle pull on the skin, which can raise the brow and lift the cheeks. Tease the hair and gather it right above the nape of your neck. Split it into two sections, teasing the top to add volume!
This hairstyle is great because it distracts people from your skin problems. Simply curl sections with a larger iron barrel, roll them up, and secure them with a clip. Once they’re set, let it all down and use your fingers to comb it slightly! There’s no need for hairspray!
Medium Layered Haircut
Women with a fair complexion often like this layered haircut with some honey highlights. However, to pull it off, you should have longer hair that sits right at the shoulders, but the top layers gradually get shorter.
Medium Styling with Blonde Highlights
If you want something simple, ask for a medium-layered style. Ask the hairstylists to cut your hair around the shoulders, using shorter layers. That means you have more length. Then, simply get blonde highlights. Use the picture as an example.
Classy Layered Bob
The classy layered bob is an off-center hairdo that’s easy to maintain. If you’ve got thick and long hair, you can frame the face, which is alluring yet subtle. Plus, the caramel highlights on this model add that sun-kissed look!
A twisted bun can help you make the sides of the face appear longer because they draw the eye from the cheekbones to the crown of your head. Make sure you wash your locks the day before and use some texturizing powder to get that volume!
While braids aren’t for everyone, we felt this was a beautiful hairstyle. Simply create pigtails, braiding each section. Move one to the opposite side around the top of your head and the other around the bottom. Pin each section in place, and you’re ready for the day!
Medium Auburn Bob with Layers
You simply cannot go wrong with this trendy look. Many celebrities use the layered bob, but there’s something so autumn-like about the auburn color. Make sure you brush the short layers back to feather everything out. It’s so classy!
Ask your hairstylist to cut your hair to just past shoulder length. Then, curl it to make waves, but leave the part in the center. This gently frames your cheeks, so it is ideal for people with square and round faces. Plus, the caramel highlights round it all out!
Soft and Curly Blonde Bob
If you already have curls or wavy hair, this is the style for you. We like the soft curly bob because it’s wash-and-go. If you’re interested in a low-maintenance hairdo, this is it. Add some blond highlights for the full effect.
