The age of a person’s appearance depends greatly on his or her hairstyle. What kind of hairstyle makes you look older and what kind of hairstyle makes you look younger? We asked hairdressers from all over Japan to answer this question.
This time the question was, “What kind of haircut would make me look younger, not older?”
I am in my mid-thirties and want to look as young as possible. However, I do not know what kind of hairstyle is generally considered “young-looking”.
Doing it this way makes me look older, so it’s a no-no.
If I do it this way, it makes me look younger.
Is there a standard?
I take relatively good care of my hair, so it is not damaged. Right now, my hair is just below my shoulders, but if it makes me look younger, I would be willing to cut it off or grow it longer if I have to.
The key to looking young is bangs.
Many respondents answered that the key to looking young is to have bangs.
The most common answer was that the key to looking young is to have bangs. Instead of sweeping the hair back, you can bring it forward to make you look younger. (Tokyo/Shinagawa, Beauty Salon Gaia)
“I think bangs give a cute atmosphere and make you look younger. I think so. Bangs should be long enough to cover the eyebrows, rounded (with the middle as the standard and the ends slightly longer), and the amount of bangs should be a little more than enough to make a woman look cute. (Tsukuba CALME, Ibaraki Prefecture)
It is difficult to give a clear answer as to what makes a woman look young, but in general, bangs and volume at the top are good ideas. How about looking at your face from the front in the mirror and making bangs that are straight and do not show the parting at the top of your head? (Shibuya hair OrB ebisu, Tokyo)
“To look younger, it’s easy to make bangs. The shorter the length, the cuter and more energetic your image will be. (Osaka / Osaka asobi)
Shiny hair does not make you look old.
Many respondents said that the key to youthfulness is the luster of hair.
The key to youthfulness is having shiny hair. Straight hair style. A little color is a good way to look young. (Kanagawa/Yokohama urupool)
“Well-maintained, shiny hair does not make you look old. (Tokyo/Shibuya, Hair & Make-up, Seaja)
“I often get requests like this, but as we age, our hair loses moisture, so I think it’s important to have shine first. (Ogaki, Gifu Prefecture / Meets Hair Design)
Consult with your hairdresser.
One respondent said that it is also important to consult often with the hairdresser in charge in order to avoid looking old.
The hairdresser will talk to the customer, get a sense of what kind of character he or she has, and then advise what kind of treatment would be best for him or her. I think it’s best to have your hair done by a hairdresser who is friendly and considerate during the counseling session.” (Sunrise Shell, Meguro, Tokyo)
“It is also important to consider your lifestyle and clothing. It is best to discuss this with your hair stylist and make a decision. (Tokyo/Setagaya gally)
