A PROFESSIONAL hairdresser has revealed which hairstyles will take years off your face – and also give you an instant facelift.
When it comes to giving yourself a more youthful appearance, the majority will instantly think of expensive Botox treatments and anti-ageing skincare products.
However, whilst these can be effective, not only are these treatments extremely costly, but also come with a string of potential side-effects.
As Brits are suffering through a cost-of-living crisis, with families set to be thousands of pounds worse off, Fabulous spoke to a hair whizz who revealed how beauty lovers can style their hair to look younger – and also save money.
A sleek ponytail
The sleek ponytail has been all the rage recently, with models, celebrities and influencers alike showing off their sculpted faces on Instagram.
And turns out, there is a reason why almost everyone seems to be rocking this hairstyle – having your locks pulled back will naturally lift your face muscles and skin.
”Here at Paco & Co Barnehurst, we believe that a high sleek ponytail giving you that lifted look can help to make you look younger, as this will give a lifting affect.”
Just as popular as a sleek ponytail – and it’s sister, sleek bun – are bangs, especially the flirty and mysterious curtain fringe, which took the internet by storm last year.
Although beauty lovers have a wide array of fringes to choose from at the salon, Sophie recommended opting for fuller ones if possible.

She explained that this is ”a flattering and gorgeous look”.
Sharp, elegant and chic, a bob will give you that assertive ”I’m the boss” appearance.

But it doesn’t necessarily have to come across the infamous Karen way – Sophie advised going for an A-line bob, which she described as ”stunning” and one that will also soften your look.
When it comes to giving yourself a makeover, it’s not just the haircut that’s of importance.
According to the expert, the shade of your hair also plays a part – and here, opting for a blonde tone is preferable.
”Lastly, going lighter with your colour will help to blend and disguise the white hairs which means less maintenance whilst also complementing those summer months” – a win-win.
Kate Middleton trick
For those scared to cut their locks or change the colour of their hair, there is another, less drastic trick, used by Kate Middleton.
”Tucking the hair behind the ears also helps to make her cheekbones and jawline pop, showing off her luminous skin and bringing attention to her eyes, which really elevates her face and gives her a youthful glow.”
Master Stylist Nick Willis at Charles Worthington Salons has also noticed the Duchess sporting her hair straighter, longer and with a middle parting.
”By tucking her hair behind the ear, Kate is revealing her strong bone structure. This is a great trick to show off your eyes and cheekbones and in turn is a fabulous anti ageing tip,” he continued.
