Raven hair can look gorgeous, but after a few years, hair that is too dark can look harsh and superficial, which means unnecessary attention on your skin. If you would rather not have all the attention on your fine lines and wrinkles, it would be best to blend in a mix of shades to achieve a more natural look.
Having hair that’s too dark can look flat and severe. Try going for softer, more natural tones that look more youthful. This doesn’t mean you have to bleach your hair platinum blonde, but shades of cinnamon, ashy chestnut, and light caramel can elevate dark hair.
When asking hair stylists, you will find that they will either strongly advocate for bangs or strongly object. We are here to tell you that it really depends on your type of hair and the shape of your face. There are several different styles of bangs, from blunt bangs to wispy bangs, from curved bangs to side-swept bangs.
Yes, some of these choices might age you, however, if you’re tempted to cut bangs, you should keep some factors in mind. Get bangs that suit you and your lifestyle — some bangs need trimmings every two to three weeks, and they should also be suitable for your hair texture and the shape of your face.
Wearing the Wrong Undergarments
Wearing ill-fitting undergarments can also age you, like a bra that's too tight. Not only is it uncomfortable, but it can also affect the way your clothes fit you and even cause you to slouch. As your body changes with age, things that used to fit well, may not be so effective anymore and your undergarments and shapewear will need to change.
It's always best to invest in good quality and comfortable undergarments. If the seams of your undergarments are starting to come apart or you feel like they aren't holding your body properly anymore, consider going to a proper outfitter to make sure you know your correct size.
Wearing “Girly” Accessories
We’re all for wearing whatever makes you feel good inside — and if that means bows, glittery hair clips, and oversized headbands, so be it. But if your goal is to wear something that doesn't make you look like you're desperately holding on to your fleeting youth, some of those girlier accessories need to go.
You can still put your hair up into a ponytail or throw on a headband, of course, but you should forgo those colorful scrunchies and clips. It would be more flattering if you opt for simple, elegant, chic accessories like a satin headscarf or simple pearl hair clips.
Cutting layers in your hair is a little bit like enjoying a slice of cake. A few bites can be delicious, but overdoing it can make you feel sick — or in the case of your hair, can result in very thin ends. A lot of women cut layers that are too short to make it look like there’s more body in their hair, and that wouldn't be wrong.
However, it should be done in moderation because when it's over-layered, the hair tends to look thinner and frame your face in an unflattering way. Not to mention the obvious risk of looking like a Karen.
