Does Your Hair Make You Look Older?

Old Woman Hair

There are always going to be things we do that make us look older. Sun for example, makes our skin look older, and the way we dress can age us as well. Some even say long hair - especially in women - can age us more than anything.

But like many things in life, it's relative. Long hair could make you look older, but cut, styled and

colored correctly it can make you look younger, healthier and happier. Here are some things to look for in your next hair style in Bee Cave to prevent you from looking old.


When determining the length to cut your hair always take into consideration your hair's health. The healthier your hair is the longer you can keep it. If your hair is long and stringy, you're going to look older, unkempt and unhealthy. If your hair is full and free of split-ends, keep it as long in length as you would like as long as your hair continues to look healthy. If you're not quite sure how your hair looks, ask a good friend or family member - they will give you their honest opinion.

Of course, you want to ensure that you have the time and energy to style your long hair. If you can't style it nicely daily, it's probably best to look for a shorter haircut. Any haircut is going to look bad if it's messy and up 24/7. Long hair takes a lot more time and effort than short hair does.

Hair Color:

If you're looking to have longer hair, keep it multidimensional. Highlights, lowlights, balayage and Bee Cave hair color can all keep your hair looking younger and healthier. If you're concerned about grey and white hair - consider going blonde or getting blonde highlights. It is much easier and lower maintenance to hide grey hair among blonde than it is to hide within a darker hair color.

As with changing your hair color at any age, make sure you work with a stylist at a hair salon in Bee Cave who isn't going to over process your hair causing it to be weak, broken and dry - nothing makes your hair look worse!

Hair Style:

Do you braid your hair? Wear headbands or style it with pieces back? Any of these styling varieties can keep your long hair from looking heavy or boring. Even adding curls or waves can bring your hair to the next level. If you don't like using too much heat on your hair, try sleeping in braids or investing in a wave spray to give you that volume you're looking for.

Hair Stylist:

More than anything you want to choose the best hairstylist at a hair salon in Austin, TX, for the look you're going for. What do their past clients look like? Is that a style you could see yourself working with? If you're looking at a stylist that specializes in unicorn hair, are you going to go to them for blonde highlights? Probably not.
