Strive for an ageless style ─ Another factor to weigh in choosing hairstyles is your age. This does not mean that you need a hairstyle that reflects the fad of the year you were born. It means that your hairstyle must accede, to some degree, to the social expectations of your age. For example, when you are in your forties, do not be tempted to have green highlights or asymmetrical cuts. If you really wanted highlights, choose the more subtle colors. And if you really wanted to copy Victoria Beckham's chic bob, compromise with a longer length or a less radical angle. Does this mean that older women have a more limited of selection of hairstyle? On the contrary, older women have more freedom with hairstyles. When you're in your forties, you can actually get away with a lot of things. But you must remember to appear more elegant rather than stylish, and to appear shrewd rather than obtuse. If you are in your twenties, you can still copy a lot of the trendier hairstyles, even those that are considered extremes. But you must still consider the nature of your job. For example, if you are in the insurance business, you want your hairstyle to encourage your clients to have confidence in your professional abilities. That is, you don't want your clients to think that you are too young for your job.
Think about it ─ our hair allows us to alter something impermanently about ourselves, while allowing us to uniquely express our beautiful personalities. Too often we allow ourselves, or may often not even realize, how easily we can drown in the subtleties of life. It is important to be aware of these moments, shake out the ruts and give yourself enough personal time for some glam and rejuvenation ─ and there's no better way than with a fresh, new hairstyle.
