27 HAIRSTYLES THAT MAKE YOU LOOK YOUNGER

27 Hairstyles That Make You Look Younger

You’ll need hairstyles that make you look younger. Because as we get older, not only the color but also the texture of our hair changes. This often makes us feel that the styles we’ve worn for decades are no longer as flattering, but changing things up feels incredibly daunting. 

This is partly because we all know exactly what we like and are used to as far as our hair, makeup, and clothing styles go. It’s also because the media would have us believe that chopping off our locks and paying out thousands to cover any signs of gray hair is our only option once we reach 40!

These things are not true at all. There are countless gorgeous cuts and styles out there that we know you’ll love. And, they’ll suit you no matter what age you are. To help you pick out the next style on your continuing, beautiful hair journey, we’ve compiled a list of seriously amazing styles that will suit your locks from your 40’s and onwards. And, luckily for you, they’re all just a scroll away…

When it comes to hairstyles and haircuts that make you look younger, there’s no one-size-fits-all. Additionally, you should always feel free to choose whatever look you love and makes you feel most beautiful. We’re hoping these suggestions based on the texture and makeup of your hair, plus your face shape can help you decide which feels just right for you!

For Thin Hair

As ladies with thinner hair will know, aging often means our already feathery hair can become even wispier. If you’re nodding along, please don’t panic! There are so many stunning styles out there that will look amazing on you. Our top recommendation? A blunt-cut bob.

Not only does this style make thin hair appear thicker, but it’s also super low maintenance and looks amazing straight or with a few loose beachy waves.

For Voluminous Hair

If you’re blessed with beautiful, voluminous hair, you have your pick of the bunch when it comes to flattering hairstyles after 40. It also means you can easily pull off longer locks if you wish! To keep them looking youthful ask your hairdresser for some lighter layers to frame your face and add bounce to your cut. We also recommend balayage when it comes to coloring to keep your look dimensional instead of flat and monotone.

For Naturally Straight Hair

For naturally straight hair, we always recommend adding in at least a few soft layers to frame the face and give shape to your style. This stops your hair from looking drab or lifeless in any way and elevates your features. Additionally, a simple cut like this combined with a soft side part looks eternally elegant and makes the most of your smooth locks.

For Naturally Curly Hair

Naturally, curly hair is amazing as you always have instant volume and bounce. After 40, we adore the lob (long bob) or a cut just past the shoulder for ladies with natural curls. This way you keep your length yet gain a whole lot of volume. Plus, there are so many hairstyles you can pull of with hair of this length!

Flattering Hairstyles For Your Face Shape

Though we’re certainly not saying you should rule out a hairstyle just because you think it won’t flatter your supposed face shape, we can suggest styles we think are extra flattering.

Square

Ladies with square face shapes, long feathery layers are perfect for you. Not only will they complement and soften the beautiful angles of your face, but they can also be styled in so many beautiful ways!

Oval 

Oval face shapes also look great with longer hair cuts that boast light layers and loose waves. This will complement the length of your face whilst elevating your features with the shorter pieces within the cut.

Rectangle

Whether you opt for long or short hair, we always think curls or waves are a great choice for ladies with rectangular-shaped faces. This style adds volume to your hair which perfectly compliments the elegant angles of your face. Meanwhile, high ponytails or a bun is also a great way to highlight that beautiful jawline!

Heart

In our opinion, you can never go wrong with a long bob if you have a gorgeous heart-shaped face. This cut will cleverly draw attention to your jawline and looks even prettier with a few loose waves thrown in for good measure.

Triangle

We absolutely adore angular hairstyles for ladies with a triangular face shape. With this in mind, why not opt for a chic angled bob or try a medium-length lob with full bangs.

Though you should feel absolutely no pressure to make yourself look younger at a certain age, we do find it’s always fun and interesting to discover new age-defying hairstyles. Not only can they make us feel amazing, but you also might find a look for yourself that you adore, feel youthful in, and would never have thought to try before now. 

For Thin Hair

The pompadour style up-do is one of the chicest styles going. Its swept-back style is eternally elegant whilst the teasing involved at the crown gives thin hair an instant lift. This one’s especially perfect for evening events.

For Voluminous Hair

When you’re working with tons of volume, ask your stylist for a bob that works with beachy waves. Side-swept bangs also look especially amazing with this look that celebrates the volume of your locks in a highly coveted, nonchalant way.

For Naturally Straight Hair

Our go-to for naturally straight hair in your 50s? A chic layered bob, preferably with a few light-reflecting highlights. Not only is the bob an eternally chic cut, creating layers will add dimension and shape to your locks. Meanwhile, deciding to add a few highlights will brighten your complexion and give your straight hair a lift!

For Naturally Curly Hair

If you’re lucky enough to have a natural curl to your hair, we say not only embrace it but amp it up! Your 50s are no time to become shy and bouncy, voluminous curls not only scream confidence, but they also look amazingly youthful.

Now, moving onto hairstyles for your face shape…

Square

For those with square-shaped faces, we highly recommend styles that incorporate a deep side part. Additionally, side-swept bangs will emphasize your jawline and look amazing on you!

Oval

Oval faces will always suit a blunt cut lob with subtle layers, that said, you can honestly pull off any style you like! We also love beachy waves on shoulder-length tresses for ladies with oval-shaped faces.

Round

As we mentioned before, you should honestly choose whichever style you love and feel most beautiful and confident in. If you’re looking for a little guidance, however, we find that cuts with staggered layers starting around the jawline always look stunning on those with round faces in place of blunt cuts. 

Heart

To compliment a beautiful heart-shaped face, try styling your hair in waves that begin just below the ears. 

Diamond

No matter the length of your hair, we always adore deep side parts for ladies with diamond-shaped faces. Additionally, medium-length cuts between a lob and shoulder-length were made for you!

If you’re searching out haircuts that make you look younger at 60, don’t be fooled by the endless sources telling you your only option is super-short, or nothing. There are countless ways to cut and style your hair that are incredibly flattering at 60 and we’re about to prove it to you.

For Thin Hair

If there’s ever a time to take the plunge and go for a shorter haircut, it’s in your 60s. The pixie cut is perfect for ladies with thinner hair too as it instantly adds volume and texture, eliminating any previously long, thin lengths that might not be enhancing and complimenting your facial features in the way you want them to.

For Voluminous Hair

Voluminous locks shouldn’t be taken for granted at any age! So, we say embrace your volume with a textured bob or lob that’ll really elevate your hair texture and show off its youthful energy.

For Naturally Straight Hair

Naturally straight hair is a godsend when it comes to creating chic hairstyles in your 60s. For example, a shoulder-length cut with a center parting looks surprisingly youthful, especially with a few face-framing layers and teased roots for volume. Think Diane Keaton and you’ll know just what we mean!

For Naturally Curly Hair

Curls are a gift at any age, so if you have them, use them. If you find your hair’s a litter thinner now than it once was, ask your stylist to lop off the ends and treat your tresses to a deep conditioning treatment. This will revive your, now shorter, curly locks and make them look much fresher and more youthful.

And The Face Shapes…

Square

Side-swept bangs will look incredible on you. They’re also great for creating dimension and shape around the face and drawing attention to your eyes.

Oval

Opt for a blunt bob or lob with layers to frame your face and work with the beautiful shape of your jawline. 

Round

A choppy pixie cut might just be the answer to your prayers!

Heart

For a heart-shaped face, we always love the youthful and stylish appearance of a side-parted, cropped hair cut with plenty of volume.

Triangle

For a triangle-shaped face, ask your stylist for a layered style that highlights your features by emphasizing their positioning.
