Nuneaton Telegraph - - BEAUTY - YOUR UP-DO

THERE is noth­ing like a new hair­style to leave you feel­ing revitalised, and at this time of year many women think of re­vamp­ing their style. But did you re­alise that cut­ting a few inches off, light­en­ing your hair colour or even just switch­ing up your part­ing could ac­tu­ally knock years off how you look?

With clients in­clud­ing Cindy Craw­ford and Eva Lon­go­ria, celebrity hair­dresser As­gar Sa­boo cer­tainly knows a thing or two about good hair. Here the cre­ative di­rec­tor at Daniel Galvin in Lon­don’s West End gives his tips on how to look 10 years younger with a few sim­ple changes.

A classy chignon is favoured by many ac­tresses on the red car­pet, but many don’t re­alise that this style can look dated and harsh in­stead of young and fresh, es­pe­cially if the hair is scraped back too harshly.

If you want some­thing more youth­ful, go for a looser style and add braids, as seen on ac­tress Si­enna Miller (see main pic­ture, right). They look mod­ern and as part of an up-do, will look so­phis­ti­cated.

Start at the front of your hair and loosely braid the hair, then loosely tie your locks on top of your head and pull out some hairs for some­thing more put to­gether, then se­cure with a gloss­ing mist. This is guar­an­teed to knock years off your look.


BRUSH­ING the hair back with no part­ing can look very stuffy – it can re­mind you of the dated Eight­ies or Nineties style and will make you look older than your years. Re­fresh your look with a cen­tre part­ing, as seen on Amy Adams, Cameron Diaz, above, and El­iz­a­beth Banks.

This looks mod­ern and is a sim­ple step which takes less than a minute – try it and see how youth­ful you’ll look! If you’re not sure then try a side part­ing, which can feel more com­fort­able and will still look fresh.


CER­TAINLY CER­TAINLY, dark hair can look beau­ti­ful, but a sin­gle tone of colour can ap­pear flat and make your hair look dull and aged. In­stead, try a lighter shade of your reg­u­lar tone, or add some nat­u­ral high­lights at the front and crown, as seen on Cate Blanchett (pic­tured above), Reese Wither­spoon and Mena Su­vari. This will brighten up your com­plex­ion, add shine to your hair and help you look younger.


finds out how a new look could knock years off you

AL­THOUGH a straight, high main­te­nance look can be glam­orous, hair which looks too per­fectly styled can make you look older than you are.

Try some­thing dif­fer­ent with a messier tex­ture, as seen on style icons in­clud­ing Jen­nifer Anis­ton and Drew Bar­ry­more (pic­tured above), which will bring youth and play­ful­ness to your looks. Try a mousse be­fore roughly blow-dry­ing your locks, or sim­ply use a salt spray at the ends of the hair when it’s dry to add a sexy, tou­sled look.
