8 Hair Mistakes That Make You Look 10 Years Older
Stylists explain how you might be adding years to your look—and what you can do about it.
Mistake #8: Your hair is super-straight.
A lank hairstyle makes your face look long and drawn. (Plus, if you have naturally wavy or curly hair, the hot tools required to achieve straightness leave your hair dry and dull
.) If you have naturally fine, straight hair
, ask your stylist for long layers and comb a lightweight mousse through damp hair from roots to ends before airdrying or blowdrying (avoid heavy styling creams or serums). If you blowdry, use a round brush to create soft curls at the ends of the hair; setting dry hair with Velcro rollers will also create softness and add volume to offset any drooping in the lower face.
