How A Haircut Can Make You Feel Younger

If you’ve ever walked out of the salon feeling like a new person, then you know what a fresh cut can do for you.

"It's one of the biggest changes you can do to yourself in the shortest period of time because the thing with hair is the perception it creates," Cutler says. According to Cutler, a haircut needs to check a number of boxes in order to work for you.

“The style should make you feel comfortable and empowered,” he says. “You may have a look that is aesthetically pleasing, but if you don't feel sexy and confident then you won't feel good,” he says.

Once you’ve chosen a style that makes you feel comfortable and empowered, Cutler advises taking a few other components into consideration.

“Think about your face shape, your commitment to maintenance and trendiness,” Cutler advises. “People want to be fashionable, but it's important that the style suits their lifestyle and comfort zone.”

The Beautiful Bob

The bob has been around for years—and for good reason, too.

“They’re timeless,” the expert stylist says. “The range of bobs out there is what influences their constant relevancy.” 

When it comes to choosing the right bob for you, it’s important to consider where it falls in relation to your jawline.

“By hugging the jaw, it looks a little sexier, modern, and more modern in its intention,” Cutler explains.

It’s a look that is always popular and constantly reinventing itself. Keep your bob cut looking fresh with Redken All Soft Mega Mask and let the results speak for themselves!

Lovely Layers

Another stylist secret to getting that youthful glow is with some well-positioned layers. If you’re unsure which layers are right for you, the celebrity stylist recommends the modern shag for a throwback done right.

“I love this hybrid of the modern shag,” Cutler says. “With layers you get added softness to the face and it’s a really modern way to look more feminine."

Layers can be combined with bangs if you’re looking to really shake up your style.

“Fringes of all shapes and sizes are taking over and it's a fantastic way to add a bit of youthfulness to your look,” the pro says. “If you don't want to lose length, this is a great way to change up your style. Bangs are a little softer."

Inject some body into your hair with the Redken High Rise Volume Lifting Shampoo and Conditioner, and reap the fringe benefits with this youthful look!

The Pretty Pixie

Our final pick for a youthful look done right is the pixie cut.

“It’s an amazing way to reinvent yourself because it’s liberating and shows a sense of confidence,” Cutler explains. “The beauty lies in the simplistic nature of the look. It's more than youthfulness, it's about the reinvention of you.”
