Opting for a Shorter Hair Cut
Everyone tends to opt for shorter hair cut once in their life time. Been there, done that. As the famous celebrity hair stylist Laini Reeves says “Women always seem to cut their hair short when they get to a certain age, as you age, longer hair is actually more flattering and softer around the face and neckline. Also, longer hair is easier to achieve a more natural hair color to blend when going gray.” That said, we know that the struggle to try going short and sexy is real! So we would recommend consulting with a good hair stylist before you decide on the cut and the length.
Forgetting to use Heat protection products
Straightening, Ironing, blow drying on a daily basis effects our hair the most, drying it out and making it brittle. This ultimately causes your hair to thin and thin hair which is lacking luster significantly ages you. Always try using heat protection products before heat styling so that your hair does not get dry and damaged in the long run. For our list of most favourite heat protecting sprays scroll down.

Extreme Hair Colour Switch
We have seen many women making this mistake unaware of the fact that dying your hair from grey to jet black or even switching from black to all blonde might make you look harsh and prematurely aged. Why? Because getting too dark with your color creates the illusion of more fine lines and wrinkles. In the same way, getting too blonde, ashy or light makes hair look flat and washed out. The solution is to maintain a certain level of contrast between your hair color and your skin tone as it makes you look young and not so ‘wanna-be’.
