Forever Young: Hair and Makeup Tips to Look Younger

Gloss Over It

"Hair color loses its luster with age," says Kyle White, a colorist for the Oscar Blandi Salon in New York City. The simple solution: an at-home color-depositing glaze, which coats each strand so that hair is more reflective. Choose one designed for blondes even if you're a brunette or a redhead, because it will add subtle golden tones. "Warming up your hair brightens your complexion, making you look younger," White says. Try Rita Hazan Ultimate Shine Foaming Gloss Enhances Golden Tones ($26, sephora.com).

Seek Out Skin-Care Ingredients...for Your Hair

Hair-care brands are taking cues from facial products to reverse the signs of aging tresses. Scan labels for these powerhouse ingredients:

  • Glycerin: This humectant pulls in water from the atmosphere to plump parched strands. Find it in Nexxus Youth Renewal Rejuvenating Elixir ($18, drugstores).
  • Niacinamide: A form of vitamin B3, this strengthens weak hair, making it appear thicker. Find it in Pantene Age Defy Advanced Thickening Treatment ($20, drugstores).
  • Ceramides: These fatty acids turn brittle strands silky and smooth. Find them in L'Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm ($7, drugstores).

Join the Movement

Conventional wisdom says you should part with your long locks after a certain age. Not true, says Jen Atkin, a celebrity hairstylist for Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy. "It's stiff, lifeless hair -- at any length -- that ages you." Ask your stylist to snip layers around your face and crown to give your hair swing and body.
