Can your hair colour make you look younger?

When you think of anti-ageing we’ll bet your mind gravitates towards the latest skincare products, or you start googling clever makeup techniques. However the biggest anti-ageing secret of all has everything to do with your hair colour.

So while you've been busy focusing on treating your skin with anti-ageing masks and serums, you might not have noticed that your ashy blonde hair or a too-dark brunette colour could be undoing all your hard work.

Fortunately, there are a few hair colour choices that can trick everyone into thinking you're way younger than you are.


This is a great option for brunettes looking for an easy change that isn't too extreme, adding caramel highlights can help to warm and soften facial features. Plus, this look adds dimension to the hair, making it appear as voluminous as it was a decade ago.

This look is youthful, low maintenance and re-creatable, plus, due to the soft ‘grow-out’ you can have your highlights done every few months and touch up the roots in between.

Adding brightness and contrast to your hair is key to looking as youthful as possible. You don’t want a colour that’s too monotone, instead focus on bringing brightness and light to your face, to make your skin really glow.
