Flattering hairstyles are not always dependent on the age of a person; however, there are a few pointers that help men and women, alike have the most flattering hairstyles for age and for the type of work you do.
When choosing a style that is age-appropriate, keep in mind that the wrong cut or color can make you look older than you are. Finding a haircut that is suitable for your lifestyle and compliments your face shape, hair type, and features are also important.
For women ages 18-30, longer styles usually work well. Loose curls or waves are popular and work well wearing hair down or as up-dos. These styles can work well in most situations and with most wardrobe choices. Frequent trims are a must to keep this hair style from looking ragged.
Women ages 30-45 can wear long hair, but should keep it smooth with clean lines to look more mature and professional. An angled haircut with longer layers in the front than the back accentuates the natural bone structure of the woman's face. For women who prefer something softer, a blunt shoulder cut with side bangs and an off-center part is very flattering. This age in a woman's life may sometimes be the busiest; many women are this age group are in the prime of their careers and/or are mothers. Medium-length layers with soft bangs are great for this age group.
For women age 45 and older, if you want to wear your hair long, you should have some layering around the face and chin areas. Layering the hair provides shape and definition and makes a woman appear younger. Harsh and dramatic colors are usually not flattering for this age group. If you want highlights or color, try to stick to a color that is as close as possible to your natural color.
Hair tends to grow weaker with age; women in their forties and fifties need to maintain hair more at this age, which may include a deep conditioning treatment and trim every few weeks. Layers help build body and color becomes important to cover grays. Soft bangs look fresh and young and help cover wrinkly foreheads, while restoring definition to facial features.
Many women of all ages prefer shorter hair to longer, because it is usually easier to maintain. If a woman is forty years old or older, and is comfortable with long hair, that is fine. The trick to hairstyles at any age is keeping the hair healthy-looking by having it trimmed, conditioned if needed, and keeping it textured.
Since most men wear shorter hair styles than women, they can get away with styling their hair almost anyway they want at any age. For men age 18 to 30 with prominent bone structure, gel, paste, or putty helps with angling the hair. Some men ages 18-30 have faux-hawks, long locks, spikes, or the bed-head look and it looks great and age appropriate.
Men ages 30 to 45 should be careful not to use too much gel or hairspray. Hair that looks crunchy, messy, or too wet is not appropriate for career-oriented men. Using about a dime-size amount of putty to structure the hair is helpful and provides a clean, kept look.
Men ages 45 and older usually look better with short hair; long hair is not usually appropriate for this age group of men, especially if the hair has some grays. Gels, spray, and putty are not usually best for this age group.
It is always helpful to get a beautician's or barber's advice for a hairstyle that is age-appropriate and one that flatters your skin tone and features. They are trained to know those kinds of things, can offer advice, and even show you some pictures of hairstyles and let you choose.
