13 Women's Hairstyles That Will Knock Years Off Your Appearance

Top Tips January 19, 2018 By Hugo

Opinions around women's hairstyles have long been subjective. Everyone is different, and while some may swear by a clean and easy-to-maintain bob cut, others would be hard-pressed to do away with their luscious locks.

However, for those that are unsure about what works best, or for those simply wanting a change, then read on as we take you through 13 hairstyles that will leave you looking glamorous, stylish, and 10 years younger.

1. Chic Bob Cut

A timeless classic, a Bob-cut complements most facial structures. And for those wishing for a similar style but wanting to maintain a bit of length, then go with a shoulder-length/ chin-length cut.

This hairstyle is a safe bet to look good for any time of year and occasion and is style often favored by the beautiful Taylor Swift.


2. Pixie

Simple, yet highly risky, women who choose this cut often have the confidence to get away with it.

For those that do ask for a pixie cut, hairdressers will often mess it up a bit to give the style a chic and youthful image that can quite quickly knock off years on your appearance.

3. Side-Swept Bangs

An excellent side-swept bangs haircut can easily conceal unwanted crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.

Without such a style, your appearance will often be reminiscent of your actual age. Having blunt bangs, for instance, can even make many women seem old. So play it safe and go for side-swept bangs.


4. Short, Wavy Hair

For those with natural curls, then leave them as they are because they're now in vogue. But you don't want to be using curling irons or professional treatments every day to maintain it.

The key is in the length. Too short and curly and your hair will pout up while long strands of hair can make it look like a birds nest so make sure the cut is a medium-length so that you have enough volume.

5. Long Layers 

For those with long layers, highlighting them every once in a while can quite easily give you a youthful radiance.

Without highlighting every root, target only the parts most likely to be exposed from the sun. Just look at 58-year-old Michelle Pfeiffer. Yes, she's 58. Not 38. 58.....

6. Side Part

While parting hair can add slimness to a face, mature women should choose a side part which forms a flattering hairline around the face.

A perfect example to follow is Jennifer Aniston, whose signature hairstyle always appears to make her look like a woman in her early 30s when she's actually 48!

7. Short and Textured

This is a great style for those seeking more volume.

Short and easy to manage, spruce the style up with a bit of hairspray to create a youthful look.

8. Bold Colour 

A bright colour is a perfect way to dazzle and achieve a youthful glow without doing anything to your face. A fiery red always looks good, while a velvety black can be just as prepossessing.

To be on the safe side, consult your hairdresser and ask which colour is most likely to complement your skin tone.

9. Bun

While man-buns have taken centre stage in recent years, the benefits of a female bun shouldn't be forgotten. Not only is this style quick and easy to attain, but it also tightens your skin by reducing the appearance of wrinkles which in turn does a good job of showcasing your cheekbones.

For those with an enviable bone structure, this style is a must.

10. Braid

Braids aren’t only the preserve of young women. Done right, anyone can pull it off.

For mature women, it's best to go with a side-swept braid with hair strands that rest slightly below your mid-drift. Not only does it look terrific, but it also adds a cool urban subtlety.

11. Accessories

For those who can't part ways with their regular haircut, try sprucing things up by adding a few subtle yet stylish accessories!

Even the tiniest of accessories can give your hair that extra bit of shine that can't always be achieved by a fresh haircut. 

12. Warm Hair

While your natural skin tone depletes with age, donning warming and glowing hair colours can give your skin a coruscating glow.

It's best to use subtle highlights colours like the dimming-bronze sported by the beautiful model Chrissy Teigen in the picture above. 

13. Mid-Length Hair

For those unsure about what best suits their facial structure, then playing it safe with a mid-cut allows you to chop-and-change with a number of different hairstyles.

Easy to maintain, mid-length hair still gives off a glamorous look without looking like you're trying to claw back lost years.
