10 Hairstyles That Will Make You Look 10 Years Younger (Part 1)

The hair is the richest ornament of women

Wearing the wrong hairstyle is the beauty version of time-traveling—straight from your actual age to a decade (or two) older. Here, the most common mistakes and how to fix them.

Since we are on a road trip it will be
difficult to update my blog so in the meantime I have decided to share some celebrity hairstyles with you.  Showing you what makes you look older and younger according to celebrity "critics".  A celebrity is any well-known TV or movie star who looks like he spends more than two hours working on his hair.

You may or may not agree the choice is yours but, it is still fun.  This hairstyle on the left supposedly makes you look OLDER: Shellacked hair is fine for royalty—in their 60s.  Same celebrity on the left (Kate Bosworth)  YOUNGER: Loose styles, like a side braid, are more queen of cool.  Honestly who wears their hair in a humongous pile at the top of their heads....??

How many of you know (mainly girls/women) or someone who has beautiful hair and then decides to do some drastic change in color?  I have sen a few of these changes in people know and unknown to me and I must say they look years older.  I think it is unnatural to go from a beautiful dark color to a horrible bleached blond and vice versa also.

To the left is Sarah Jessica Parker looking OLDER: Single-process color may be dramatic, but it doesn't do you any favors after 40.  To the right YOUNGER: By adding just a few highlights, you bring a brighter feeling to your whole face.

Jennifer Garner
OLDER: Hair that's too stiff is like a face with too much Botox—an instant tip-off that you're old enough to have a dermatologist on speed dial. 
YOUNGER: Keep them guessing with a softer style that works with your hair's natural texture.

OLDER: Though center parts were key to hippie-youth style, they add decades to those of us who actually lived through the '60s and '70s. 
YOUNGER: Liven up a center part by creating a movement of your own, in the form of loose curls and a little height at the roots.
Penélope Cruz

OLDER: Flat hair is flattering to no one.  Period
YOUNGER: Tousled layers take away decades—and add sex appeal.

Will continue with the last 5 looks in my next blog.  In the meantime what do you think of my hairstyle?  I go from having it curly (most of the times) to an ocassional straight look.  Arvid by the way hates the straight look...why??

Life is an endless struggle full of frustrations and challenges, but eventually you find a hair stylist you like

until next time....
