2. The wrong color
Professional stylists claim that choosing the right hair that compliments your skin tone, makes a big difference in your appearance. The hair color you choose could add years to your look or take away some. The key is in mixing colors with highlights for a softer and subtle shade so that when the hair grows out, it gives a more natural look, says Jeff Stump, owner of Artkitekts salons.
3. Flat hair
Flat is hair is just as big of a culprit than all the other points in this article. Flat hair makes your facial features more prominent and sharp than it already is. Too much hair product and combing or brushing are going to weigh down your hair. In emergency cases, you could use dry shampoo. Spray onto the roots of your hair, sleep on it overnight so it can work its magic and then brush off the excess in the morning. Make sure that your hair is not too greasy when you put it on or else it is only going to stick to your hair than give a push-up effect. Also, dry shampoos are not recommended to be used all the time because it causes product build up.
The Next one is so important!
4. Wrong shampoo
It is vital that you find a shampoo that is perfect for your hair type. Ask your stylist which is the best brand and type that will be good for your hair. Also, remember to not use hair products that have gone beyond its expiry date, it is only going to damage your hair more. Another point to remember when using shampoo is to not switch between brands. It takes time for your hair to adjust to the new type and ingredients and give the proper results.
5. The wrong part
Apparently, the way you part your hair plays a significant role in how you look. Professional stylists state that middle parting, which is quite common, or the side part, does not work for just anyone. Your skin tone, face shape, and the haircut will help to decide which parting suits best for you. For some people, bangs can make them look younger, provided the hair color matches their skin tone. Ask for a stylist’s help for better results.
The Next point is quite important!
Having your hair teased is not the same as volume. To achieve hair volume, the best way is to cut your hair in layers and depths. Teasing your hair will only give height which makes you look older. The hair tends to get thinner as we get older, the thinner it looks, the older you look. If you are not comfortable getting a haircut you are trying for the first time, ask your stylist for a good quality volumizing shampoo and conditioner. Though the hair product gives only temporary results, the haircut lasts longer, or at least until your layers grow out.
7. Never changing your look
You may feel good, or you are just too lazy to change your current hairstyle. But did you know that it can actually make you look older? Experiment with haircuts, it is going to grow back anyway. You will not only feel different, but you will also find yourself styling hair in different ways. The same haircut for years will only make you style your hair the same way. Change is definitely different, but change is also good.
You should never compromise when it comes to the Next point!
8. Keep your hair healthy
No one likes their hair damaged, brittle, weak or with split ends. It is basically every woman’s nightmare. But to keep it healthy, you need to put in your effort and time too. There is no magic that will give you the luscious, big, shiny locks you always dream about. Give the nutrients your hair needs by eating healthy, and drinking at least 8 glasses of water. There are a lot of hair vitamins that you can take if needed. But always consult a physician before you consume anything!
