5 Hair Tricks to Make You Look Years Younger

Roll back the calendar this holiday season with these five hair tricks from Madison Reed that will help you look years younger.

Turn back the clock with a bang!

It’s amazing how bangs can softly cover and ease those worry creases in your forehead and somehow harken to a childlike look. They can be layered, side swept, choppy or straight. A beautiful bang is better than Botox!

I’ve had bangs for about two years now. I hated them when I was a girl, but now I think they are just right. I get tons of compliments on my blunt bangs, and I think they do make me look younger.

Reverse gravity with an updo!

Going vertical is an instant facelift! (Where I’m from, we call any type of tight updo a redneck facelift. Hey, it works.) Your romantic updo can work against the horizontal lines in the face that come with age like crow’s feet and nasolabial folds or laugh lines. It also brings the focus up to the eyes where all of the sparkle and magic happens.

Adorn yourself!

Decorate your hair for the upcoming celebrations! A hair ornament or two make you look fresh, and festive. There is something about adding jewels that brings out our inner princess.

Cover up those roots!

If you run out of time for a full hair coloring before the next holiday party, don’t let your look suffer with a skunk streak. Look your brightest and shiniest with a quick blending of the perfect color on your hairline. Madison Reed’s Root Touch Up comes in a full spectrum of colors to conceal roots and grays on the go.

Pump up your color!

Why settle for the same old, drab color? Even if you are not covering grays, roll back the years by adding tones in your hair that compliment your skin tone and eyes. This makes a profound difference in the way that you look. Think of how you look in a color that does not compliment your skin tone versus a color that lights you up! Imagine your crowning glory creating that effect every day!

For cool complexions on brunettes, consider mahogany, deep reds and chocolates and for cool blondes, go for mink-y, smoky tones. For warm complexions on brunettes, add cinnamon and gold tones and for warm blondes, wheat and honey tones. Brightening and refreshing your color will literally turn back the clock!

Great suggestions, Anne! I use color and am thinking of full on bangs for a change! Nice to know they're still in style!

OMG, that whole root cover up thing is a lifesaver! I found this stuff a few years ago and it has made such a big difference, if it weren't for root touch up I'd have to get my hair colored every 3 weeks!

I'm going to test out this brand of root cover up powder and write about it. I'm on the hunt for root cover ups that really work. I've used sprays and stuff that goes on like mascara, but I've never used a powder.
