After years of being part and parcel of many people’s beauty regimens, wigs have finally reached mainstream popularity, thanks to celebrities and social media accounts showcasing them without shame. But, as great as they are, wearing a wig isn’t as simple as putting any wig on.
The most flattering wig would obviously be custom-made and tailored to your natural hairline and the shape of your face. It would also be incredibly expensive. If you don’t mind shelling out the dollars, get fitted with a wig that would look similar to your hair’s natural thickness and not look or feel synthetic. The best fit should be chosen based on lifestyle.
The biggest problem with trends is that they change rapidly, so if you’re following outdated trends, you tend to look out of touch and therefore, older. You have two options to deal with that predicament: you can either immerse yourself in fashion news and keep up or you can make sure your wardrobe is timeless.
Honestly, the latter option sounds a lot more manageable. While certain trends come and go, some pieces never go out of style. Keep those around and whenever you feel like changing things up a bit, do it with accessories, which are a lot easier to keep or toss away.
The Wrong Hairstyle
Once upon a time, people didn't have YouTube tutorials on how to do anything under the sun. If you saw a cool hairstyle in a magazine and wanted to try it out for yourself, you had a lot of trial and error waiting for you.
Using pictures from magazines and online as a guide for your desired hairstyle can lead to 'hairesy!' Especially if your picture of someone else's hair isn’t suitable for your face and hair type. You’ll have a much better chance of getting a reasonable fit for you if you look for someone with a similar shape as you.
Not all shades of eye shadow are created equal, and some shades certainly do a lot of damage when it comes to aging your face a little. The thin skin around your eyes tends to wrinkle as you age, and wearing a colored eye shadow can really draw attention to those wrinkles.
Possibly the worst colors for anyone trying to avoid an aged effect are black and almost any shade of blue. The hue of the eye shadow you choose can affect your overall look more than you know, so it's better to choose a color that's more natural and earthy.
Adding hair extensions can potentially age you for several reasons. Firstly, improperly applied extensions can put a strain on your natural hair, leading to breakage and thinning. This can make your hair appear weaker and aged. Moreover, extensions require regular maintenance and can be time-consuming to style and maintain, adding stress and inconvenience to your daily routine.
Additionally, using low-quality extensions or ones that do not match your natural hair color and texture can create an unnatural and artificial look, which can inadvertently make you appear older. Lastly, the weight of extensions can pull on your scalp, potentially causing tension headaches and discomfort, further contributing to a tired and aged appearance.
