Is your hairstyle right for your age?
Your mane is an accessory to your personality and hence making right decision about how to manage it is very essential. No matter how old you are, your hair can always make you look attractive. We spoke with Neeldavid Katwal, an international celebrity hairstylist, about the best hairstyles to keep you looking and feeling sexy at any age. Here are few options for you to consider:
This is the time to be daring and experiment with every style. Your hair grows fast and can mend all the damages with a little help from your side. So, you can grow your hair long and then go for an edgy cut and chop it into a short bob. You can also try straightening, curling your hair, or colour it the way you want.
Hairstyles for this age: Edgy asymmetrical cut, pixie-cut, long-bob, shoulder-length hair, long-wavy tresses, layered long hair. Braids of different styles (French braid, boho chic braid, side-braid), top-knot, braided up do, ballerina-bun (for round faces), horse-tail.
Generally women get busy with their family or career or both at this age. But that shouldn't stop you from looking sexy. You can still maintain long hair. If you have little kids to take care of after a long day at office, go for shoulder length hair that can be tied up in a pony when you are at home.
Hairstyles for this age: Long hair with youthful bangs and locks, bed-head bob, shag-hairstyle, chin-length, pixie-cut, wavy-bob, long beach-waves. You can keep your hair open as it makes you look younger. However, for comfort and styling you can go for ponytails, top-knots or classy buns.
Do not be afraid of your age and go for the hair-cut you want to have. Keep your hair long and wavy to redefine your sex-appeal or go for short and sleek hair to highlight your sporty-healthy mood.
But your hair tend to get brittle at this stage. So take proper care. Hot oil treatment once a week and hair-spa twice a month is really a must.
Hairstyles for this age: Layered hair of different lengths look amazing. If you have the confidences go for pompadour and quiff styles, edgy cuts, curled up shoulder length hair. Long wavy hair also looks cool. You can keep your short hair open and flaunt them all the time. If you have your hair long, messy braids and buns will make you look younger.
Analyse the nature of hair and be honest. You can keep long or short hair depending on the health of your hair. Ideally a shoulder length hair with slightly angled layers looks perfect. Short hair with length in the sides and top of the head diverts the attention from facial imperfections like wrinkles and fine-lines.
Hairstyles for this age – Angled shoulder length hair with layers, short chic hair, long-straight hair look amazing at this age. If you have long hair which is thinning and look dull if kept open, go for a clean side bun which is perfect for your age.
You want to enjoy a comfortable retired life at this stage. So pick a style that needs low maintenance and go for easy-going short hairstyles. Choose a good salon where you can get a well-fashioned hair which will help to enhance your good features and hide the age and flaws.
