Short hair is very in right now, and a straight-haired bob can make you look young and sophisticated. Ask your stylist to cut your hair just below your jawline, use a volumizing spray to add a little volume to your roots, straighten your locks, and leave your hair ever so slightly tousled to keep you from looking uptight.
Festival-goers have kind of taken over the braids trend, but that doesn’t mean it’s off-limits to you. In fact, braids can make you look all the more youthful! For an easy braided crown, braid a thick chunk of hair on the side of your head, wrap it around the crown of your head, and secure it on the other side with some bobby pins.

Deep Side Part
Creating a deep side part (about an inch or so off-center) makes you look effortlessly sexy. Request that your hairstylist parts your hair off-center and cut accordingly. This style adds quite a bit of volume to your hair, so you’ll hardly have to do anything else to look put-together.
Full, Side Swept Bangs
Side swept bangs frame your face and add a flirty touch to your look, which automatically takes years off your face. These bangs should start at your side part and sweep across your forehead, covering most of it. They require less maintenance than blunt-cut bangs, so you should be able to save a little money on trips to the salon!
Platinum Silver Grey
Highlights give your hair and skin a fresh, youthful glow. Plus, they can cover up a few gray hairs if you have them! If you have lighter hair, ask your hairstylist for honey-blonde highlights and for darker hair, ask for caramel highlights to add dimension to your look.
Rich, Dark Color
Over time, our hair can get a little dull, especially as we age. Adding a little luster back to your locks can instantly make you look younger without too much effort. You can make your own at-home shine mask for your hair in your own home using an egg, honey, and coconut milk.
Gentle Waves & Voluminous Roots
No matter what hairstyle you’re going for, a few framing wisps are the perfect style to make you look 10 years younger. It doesn’t have to be much or even strategic. Just grab a few strands when you put your hair up and pull them down to hang wistfully alongside your face.
Ombré makes your hair look dynamic, modern, and youthful. With this style, you can go light to dark or dark to light. Our suggestion is that you use your roots as the base color and lighten or darken as you go down. This way, you don’t need to put too much effort into maintaining it.
