1. Sunkissed Highlights
Ask your stylist for highlights to brighten up your look. Eva Longoria’s signature dark brown hair is taken to the next level with “golden brown highlights that warm up her skin tone and bring colour to her face”, comments stylist Ivan Low of Kim Robinson. Eva also took several inches off the end, debuting a shoulder-brushing length that is fresh and sexy.

2. Ombre Waves
The ombre is still very much on-trend, and Anne Hathaway works the look well. “Her ombre colour, with contrasting tones and lighter hair at the ends, reflects light onto her face, making her look younger, and her skin tone brighter,” says stylist Bosco Eng from Hairloom.

3. Blooming Balayage
Opt for a trendy balayage at your next salon session, just like Jessica Alba’s hazel and brown blend (her previous brown hair was gorgeous but we love the update!). Compared to regular highlights, “the 3D effect created by the balayage makes her hair look fuller and more voluminous. The natural-looking blending of colours helps make her hair look healthier, which makes her look younger too,” says Bosco.

Compared to Priyanka Chopra’s previous style that looked heavy and dated, her new ’do is way more relaxed and modern.

5. Youthful Bangs
Rashida Jones demonstrates that a small difference, like getting bangs, can really change things up. “Bangs covering the forehead makes one look younger,” notes stylist Asako from COVO. Also, the “casual styling with choppy ends” gives a more youthful vibe, while the heavier curls in her older style added unnecessary weight and years.

6. A Charming Crop
When Michelle Williams chopped off her long hair in 2007, the world knew then that the pixie belonged to her. She’s tried to grow it out into a bob, accompanied with an edgy blunt fringe, which, though fashionable, didn’t do her youthful features justice. So, Michelle’s returned to her famous gamine style which enhances her eyes and cheekbones.
