Ageing not only happens in our body. The process of ageing has effects on our mind as well. Sometimes it becomes a necessity to give our outlook a fresh boost of youthfulness to make our heart all cheery and lively. Our crowning glory, hair, makes up for a greater part of our appearance. If our hairstyle is all wrong, we might get the oldie look which no one wants. To say goodbye to the oldie look and to start getting complements for our chirpy outlooks we need to keep check on certain hairstyle mistakes. Here is a checklist of Hairstyles that Make You Look Older.
# Opting for Extremely Long Hairstyle
Classic length hair is dream of many but super duper long hair also makes you look older than you are. Renowned beauticians say, just like too short hair styles longer than waist length hairstyles also give the illusion of matureness. In case of longer hair, each hair strand has to bear its own weight so the hair tends to get flattened. Flattened hair definitely makes one look older!
# Placing the Main Parting at Wrong Place
If you have ever tried doing your main parting at different places of your head then you would probably know how the position of the main parting changes the entire hair look. Most people do their either middle parting or side parting. The thing is, the place where you should do your main parting is dependent on your face shape and the facial feature you want to highlight. For example, middle parting definitely gives me older look while right or left parting works fine for me. My aunt opts for no parting look as it hides the thin hair zones of the head!
# Using Styling Products in its Extreme
Hairstyling products like mousses, fixing sprays and curling creams are great options to consider when we are opting for a complex hairstyle for occasional purpose. Some people even use them to fluff up their hair to hide the thinning and lack of volume in their hair. Understanding the right quantity is very important with these hair styling products. If used too much, they will glue together the hair and the result will be stiff and weigh down hair. Do you want ‘helicopter head’ granny look? If not, then stay away from excess stylants!
# Revealing Too Much of the Forehead with Everyday Hairdos

We are not kidding when we say lack of volume in your hair makes you look older!
