Hairstyles That Make You Look Younger

The anti-aging industry is a booming one, with so many people trying to put a halt to their aging process. However, for those looking to turn back the clock instantly, switching up your hairstyle may be the way to go.

Ribbons and Bows
There is nothing quite as feminine as a ribbon or a bow, and this is a trend that is often seen on major fashion week runways. The easiest way to add a ribbon to your look is by using one to tie off a high ponytail, preferably with a large bow so that it really stands out. Alternatively, use a mini bow to finish off a half-up, half-down look, or style your hair into a braid but incorporate a ribbon running through it.

Bangs
Bangs are a quick and easy way to instantly look younger, and while you may think that bangs will not suit your face shape, this all depends on the type of bangs that you choose. Those who have a heart-shaped face should opt for graphic bangs, while those who have an oval-shaped face should choose a choppy, below-the-brow style, as this will help to widen your face and enhance your youthfulness. If you have a round face, shorter bangs will help to add some structure while drawing attention to your eyes, while those who have a short forehead should also give shorter bangs a try, as this will frame the face, or, alternatively, a longer, side-swept look. For those who are battling forehead wrinkles, then bangs are definitely the way forward, as not only will they provide your face with a youthful appearance, but they will also hide any wrinkles.

Long Layers
Long hair is extremely youthful, and styling this with layers makes it even more flattering for just about every face shape. The layers should graze your cheek and chin before getting longer, ending at the collarbone. This added softness at the top will help to open up your face, while the length will highlight your collarbone, which is a flattering area on women of any age. The length of this style is important, as going too long or too short will detract from the youthful appeal of this look.

choppy bob

Choppy Bob
Many older women tend to opt for shorter hairstyles, as these are much easier to maintain. However, if you are seeking a short style that will not age you, then a choppy bob is the way to go. This style features shaggy layers and defined angles, all of which hit the middle of your neck, and this will really make your face look fuller and younger, while hiding any thinning areas of hair that you may have.

A hairstyle that can instantly make you appear ten years younger may seem too good to be true, but this is definitely possible, and so easy to accomplish. From child-like bangs to cute ribbons, give these styles a try if you have been trying to shave a few years off of your age.

Stand-Out Celeb Haircuts of 2015

Celebrity haircuts are always evolving, from styles that we desperately want to recreate to others that we can’t quite understand and would be happy to see the end of. While there have been a huge number celebrity hair transformations over the past year, there are some that have really made their mark, so read on for some of OROGOLD’s picks of the stand-out celebrity haircuts of 2015.

For years, supermodel Naomi Campbell has had luscious long hair, but this changed in November 2015. At the British Fashion Awards that month, Campbell showcased her new look – a short, layered bob that is fun, flirty and extremely stylish.

Lauren Conrad
Fashion and style icon Lauren Conrad has rocked her blonde locks for so long that we almost didn’t recognize her with her new hair color. 2015 saw Conrad say goodbye to her signature golden color and opt for a romantic strawberry shade instead. For those of you who have been wanting to experiment with a new hair color, let 2016 be the year that you do so!

Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez is another star that swapped her long locks for a textured bob in 2015. Jlo’s was first seen showcasing her new cut in May, with the shoulder-length texture giving her a sophisticated vibe.

Fashion model Kendall Jenner’s new haircut was debuted at the AMA’s in November 2015, and featured long, sleek bangs. Her new fringe gave her quite an edgy vibe, and, due to its length, can be styled in quite a few different ways. While Jenner may have had a number of different cuts and styles over the year, this is one that OROGOLD thinks will really catch on in 2016.

Kerry Washington was another celebrity that showed off some new bangs in 2015. While it can sometimes be off-putting when the same style is frequently seen, each of these gorgeous ladies have shown us that bangs can be so flattering when done properly, for just about any face shape.

Donatella Versace
Donatella Versace’s signature hairstyle for the past decade has been long and platinum blonde, but she decided to change that in June 2015, and her decision definitely paid off. Instead of her long, straight strands, Versace now rocks a textured bob, still in her signature platinum color. Her new bob is shoulder-length and extremely stylish, giving her a trendy and youthful vibe without going over the top.

Charlize Theron
In September 2015, Charlize Theron shed her shoulder-length locks for a pixie cut, a move that many of us would certainly consider to be very daring. However, Theron’s stunning bone structure works with just about any look, and OROGOLD thinks that she definitely suits her new style.

From flirty, textured bobs to sleek, long bangs to vibrant new colors, 2015 saw a variety of different haircuts on our favorite celebrities. If you have been inspired by any of these stars to switch up your own style, OROGOLD suggests doing it soon, so that you can begin 2016 with your fresh new look.
