I Asked a Celebrity Hairstylist for the 5 Hairstyles That Make You Look Younger
There’s no denying it—as a society, we’re somewhat preoccupied with cosmetically reversing time. From a plethora of anti-aging serums and overnight miracle masks to eventually considering the fillers, many people want to dip into the fountain of youth. While most onset signs of aging appear in the skin, hair can also show age beyond just grays. Yes, color plays a role in dictating your age-defying look, but we’re here to prove that certain hairstyles possess the ability to make you look (and feel) younger.
New York–based celebrity hair colorist and stylist Mark DeBolt spills the secrets of youth by sharing the five hairstyles that can appear to reverse your age. DeBolt is also the mastermind behind Naomi Watt’s seemingly timeless hair, so I think it’s safe to say we trust him. DeBolt’s biggest piece of advice: “Hairstyles with less layering are best. By maintaining a more blunt cut, the hair will look fuller and thus, more youthful.” With that in mind, discover the five hairstyles below proven to cut off (no pun intended) at least a few years on your appearance.
