Hair Color Tips to Make You Look Younger

Wondering which hair color will make you look younger? In this article, our expert colorists share their top 5 hair color tips to help turn back the clock.

With all the focus on makeup and skin care as the antidote to aging, hair color is often overlooked. The best-kept secret is that even the subtlest difference in your shade can make you look years younger without spending a fortune on serums and creams. Here are our expert colorists’ top 5 hair color tips to help you turn back the clock in a snap.

Don’t go overly dark or light with your shade. 

You want to go with a hair color that is no more than two shades lighter or darker than your natural regrowth. Colors that are too light can clash with your skin tone and look unnatural, while going overly dark can make your hair appear matte. Matte shades are flat colors without shine that tend to look harsh against the skin and can unintentionally age you. To counteract a matte finish, we like to incorporate light-reflecting tones that add dimension such as golden and copper. 

Hair Color Espresso

Perk up black or brown hair with a strong cup of dark grind coffee or espresso. Brew, cool and add it to your dry hair. Shampoo after 30 minutes.

Nuts about Hair Color

Add sparkle to dark hair with walnuts. Boil one cup of chopped walnuts with one cup of water. Cool, strain, and pour it on! Shampoo after 30 minutes.

Hair Color to a Tea

To add highlights to dark hair, brew a cup of strong dark tea and use it as a final rinse after shampooing.


Healthy hair is the key

Unhealthy hair is dry, brittle, and lacks natural oils, which prevents color from fully penetrating the cuticle, causing dull, lackluster color. Since dull or flat color can impact a youthful look, it's crucial that your hair is moisturized, happy, and healthy. To combat unhealthy, dry hair, make sure that you’re loving your locks with the right products. Always use shampoos and conditioners created for color-treated hair, so your color is long lasting. Use a weekly hair mask to add moisture and protect your strands from heat styling and environmental stressors like sunshine and smog.
