8 Hairstyles That Will Make You Look 10 Years Younger

It’s all too easy to fall into a hair rut. After all, when you’ve been wearing a hairstyle for a long time, it’s easy to style and predictable for putting together your beauty looks. But if you’ve been feeling a little bored with your look lately, freshening up your haircut is a great way to feel more youthful. Whether you splurge on face-framing highlights or take the plunge for fun, flirty bangs, a good hairstyle can do wonders. Here are eight hairstyles on some of our favorite celebs that will make you look 10 years younger:

1. Soft Bangs

Give your face a softer, more youthful appearance by asking your stylist for soft, wispy bangs like the Duchess of Cambridge. Swoop them to the side for a more dimensional look. You could even go more extreme with baby bangs. What if you simply decide bangs aren’t your thing? It doesn’t take long to grow them out!

2. Braids

While braids may seem like a hairstyle that is exclusive to younger girls, more mature women can absolutely pull them off as well. Try a braid across the crown of your head like Tyra Bank, or side-swept braid with messy ends to add a sense of youth to your hairstyle.

3. Wavy Bob

You can’t go wrong with a soft, wavy bob like Julianne Hough has here. The soft layers add dimension, while the relaxed waves give the style a more bohemian and youthful edge.

4. Pixie

If you’re looking to for a shorter hairstyle, try asking your stylist for a cute pixie cut. Does rapper Cardi B look ah-maz-ing?

5. Bob

Highlight your jawline and enhance the look of your cheekbones with a stick-straight bob, like playwright Eve Ensler. Afraid of a big chop? Ask for a “lob,” which is a long bob.

6. Layered Mid-Length Style With Heavy Fringe

If you’re looking to keep your hair on the longer side, consider adding face framing layers and side-swept fringe, like Felicity Huffman. It’s a fresh-looking style that adds dimension to any hair type.
