With age, the length of the hair growth cycle gets shorter, the hair follicles get smaller, and the scalp can become dryer. All of these factors influence the look and feel of the hair that comes out of your head. To add to this, finding grey hair is often the first physical sign of hair ageing that people notice. So what can be done to keep yourself looking youthful? Similarly to the clothes you choose, the hairstyle you have can impact the age people think you are. Here are four anti-ageing hairstyles according to experts; short with long layers, the feathered long fringe, the choppy bob, and long and layered.
Short with long layers
For those who have fully embraced their natural grey or white hair, shortcuts can look especially good. But, when the hair goes grey, the texture also changes and this needs to be considered.
The ideal shape for a grey bob “incorporates longer pieces at the front” as this is the “best of both worlds” because it sculpts the face but still has the “structure of a short cut”.
The longer tendrils provide some softness to the cut and “can be blow-dried with volume and slicked back, or swept loosely to the side”.
“A great haircut needs to have multiple styles in one. That versatility is the secret to not getting stuck in a rut,” hair stylist Sam McKnight said.

Sam added: “A longer fringe creates a framework around the face that works especially well when you put your hair up.”
Unlike a solid fringe, or bangs, which can be harsh, a “butterfly fringe” as it has become known is a nod to the 1970s feather cut and is “extremely flattering” – think Christine McVie from Fleetwood Mac.
A fringe is also a clever way to camouflage any forehead wrinkles or fine lines you may not be not happy with.

Long and layered
There’s nothing worse than seeing long wispy hair in desperate need of a good chop. For those that prefer long hair, consider layers to add depth.
