Our youth-driven community keeps several people wondering how their ensemble, like Long hair, affects their perception of age. We all appreciate a youthful appearance from clothing to make-up, hairstyle, etc., unless you are aiming for an old lady disguise. Therefore, this blog post will discuss whether or not your long hair might be making you look old. If you doubt what hair length you should wear to give you your desired age appearance, this article has you covered. What is considered long hair? The metric for defining long hair is subjective and varies with the changing times, culture, and laws of a place. However, when you allow the locks on your head to grow a couple of inches below your shoulder length, it can generally be regarded as long. Why is long hair perceived as attractive? As cliché as it sounds, “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.” In general, people perceive long hair as more attractive than short hair. However, the reason is more subjective than it is objective. But according to popular opinion, the general affinity for long hair comes from an evolutionary standpoint. People associate lengthy hair, with health and fertility, especially for females. As a result, males appear wired to admire women with longer hair than their short hair wearing counterparts. Similarly, women tend to cut their hair shorter as they age to leave room for easy maintenance. Does Long hair make you look older? The decision about locks for a youthful appearance is more about style than length. As a result, whether or not you choose long or short hair, your hairstyle determines if you look older or younger with your hair. Essentially, there are shorter hairstyles that give you a more youthful appearance. Similarly, there are also longer hairstyles that add more years to your age. Therefore, it would help if you checked with your hairstylist to decide what hairstyle and haircut to wear. Additionally, you might want to try wearing your hairstyles to suit the season and climate. That way, your hair seems more in style and adds more youth to your face. Final Thought According to popular opinion, “age is just a number because it is a state of mind.” Therefore, whether or not you decide to wear your hair long or short, you are only as old as you think. If you think old, you will automatically act old and feel old. But if you entertain a youthful mindset, you end up acting young and looking younger.  It all comes down to personal wellness and wellbeing. As a result, the choice remains yours, to choose whatever haircut in which you feel most comfortable and confident. The reason is that, in the end, it is all about you and your personal choices. Hopefully, this article helps settle the debate in your mind about what length to wear for a youthful appearance.
