Not updating your style
It’s easy to fall into hairstyling habits, but sticking with the same style for years may be making you look older than you really are. Adam Bogucki, owner of Lumination Salon in Chicago, recommends switching up your cut at least once each decade. “I’m not one of those people that thinks that just because you’re of a certain age you should have short hair, but if it’s the same haircut you’ve been wearing for a really long time, it’s probably aging you,” Bogucki says. Here’s what your hairstylist is secretly thinking.
Instead of opting for thick, straight-across bangs, Bogucki suggests framing your face with light, wispy bangs. “I have a lot of clients that worry about lines on their forehead, so they automatically jump to wanting bangs, but those can look super harsh,” Bogucki says.
