The anti ageing haircuts that will give you an instant facelift
If you thought that anti ageing was all about skincare, then think again! You can roll back the years with clever anti ageing haircuts too. A fringe at the right length, hair shaping your jawline just so, a super short crop and impeccably placed layers, they’re all things that can make you look like you’ve been given a barely-there facelift by the most expensive surgeon to ever hit Hollywood.
The celebs know all the secrets, or rather their hair stylists do, so who better to show you how it’s done?
We’re not saying ditch your wrinkle-fighting creams, or glow-giving exfoliators, there are somethings that a stunner of a haircut just can’t tackle, but there’s no harm in upping the ante further with a seriously anti-ageing new do. That said, go into your local hair dressers and ask them to lift your features or make you look 10 years younger, and they’ll guide you outside and point you in the direction of the nearest beauty salon, the key is knowing exactly what to ask for. That’s where we come in!
Print off your favourite look from below, and take it in to your favourite hair stylist for a consultation. They’ll get the gist of the look you’re after, and find a way to best adapt it for your face shape and hair texture – if they don’t seem to be doing that, ask them to, few hair styles are one-suits-all.
So here we go, the anti-ageing haircuts that will turn back the clock…
The thinning cut
If you’re lucky enough to have super thick hair, then count yourself blessed, however sometimes weighty hair can drag your look down and that’s never going to be flattering! Ask your stylist to thin the ends slightly like Susanna Reid, this will give your hair more movement and bounce and have a serious anti ageing effect on your features.
The long cut
If you’ve got thick, coarse hair, you want to avoid the triangle, in at the top and out at the bottom look, it’s so ageing. Let your hair grow to below your shoulders and the weight of it will pull it down, making it hang straight down. Add in a few waves like Naomie Harris and you’ll soften your features and anti age your look.
The grown-out fringe cut
Asking for your stylist to cut in a grown-out fringe like Christina Hendricks will give your front sections of your hair more volume at the roots, automatically giving your face a lift, and the fringe will hang in line with your eyes, really drawing people’s attentions to your peepers.
The super long cut
If your hair’s still in top condition and full of shine and body like Penelope Cruz, firstly, we sort of hate you a little bit, secondly, keep it long and show it off! You’re one of a lucky few so flaunt it. People will assume you’re much younger than you are. Pinning one side off your face like Penelope emphasises your cheekbones and slims your face.
