Hair Mistakes – The wrong length

Finding the perfect haircut for your face shape can be a lifelong search. Talk to your stylist about the most flattering look for your hair and face type. Our hair thins as we age, so keeping it long may accentuate the thinning. “If hair is thinning, going shorter is an option,” says Sam Villa Show Ambassador, Marissa Villa. “If you’ve had long hair your entire life, it might be time to update to a lob.”

Whatever you do, make sure your haircut has layers and depth. “The classic hairstyle that makes a woman look older and dowdy is the cut where everything is the same length all over, a few inches long,” says Damian Santiago, co-owner of Mizu New York salon. “Then set with a small curling iron all over. Not cute or modern. Wispy bangs on this look kill it for me.”

As long as you have a dynamic, flattering style, the length of your hair truly doesn’t matter. Santiago told us he has mature clients who rock long layers or short pixie cuts. “A mature client with a strong inner confidence can rock any cool and modern look.”
