Look Younger With The Right Bangs

When you spot the first sign of wrinkles you may try and rush off to the dermatologist demanding fillers, but there could be another way. Why not pop to the hairdressers in Yaxley instead? You can actually look younger with the right bangs.

Bangs are a great way of taking years off your appearance. However, while you can look younger with the right bangs, you can look older with the wrong bangs. Bangs that are too short, for example, can actually draw more attention to the fine lines and wrinkles that are appearing on your face.

If you are feeling brave and want to do something dramatic then maybe consider a full blunt fringe? This style of bangs will completely frame your face. This will then draw attention to your eyes which draws attention away from those pesky fine lines.

Unless you have a long or oval face, we would recommend that you go for a softer gradient. This will help you look younger. A fringe that curves around your face and frames the cheekbones will give your face the perfect lift and it’s great as a contour too. Dump the highlighting and bronzing kits, bangs will do all the hard work for you.

A point to note though; if you do opt for a fringe, you will need the right hairbrush too. When drying your fringe avoid wrapping your bangs around the brush. This will leave you with the opposite effect to a younger looking face, Instead you will create a ‘bubble bangs’ which re an extremely dated hairstyle and may leave you looking dated too.

The brush you need is a boar’s hair paddle brush to help you when blow drying your bangs. Brush your bangs to the left and aim the blow dryer down onto the bangs. This will give you the perfect bangs that will make you look and feel younger.
