Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Update your look while shedding some pounds at the same time! There are quite a few hair tricks out there, especially when it comes to looking slimmer and younger. Read on and get ready to slim some pounds and look younger in the process.

You can visually slim your face by adding a few well-placed highlight and lowlight extensions. For example, if you have a round face, you’re going to want to place the highlights starting at the top of your head. Not only do highlights brighten up your face, they also thin it out and make it look younger. Because vertical lines lure the eyes to look up and down, the contrast of the lowlights and highlights will make your face appear thinner.

Double chins, beware of the ombres! If you fall under this category, stay away from starting the ombre color at the jawline. This will only emphasize the fullness of your chin. The best way to add color, in this case, would be to add some lowlights around your neck and cheeks.

Lighter hair will almost always make you look younger. That being said, we’re not necessarily saying you should go platinum blond, since that color can also have an aging effect. Here’s a rule to stick to: if you’re going to color or add highlights to a round face, stick to warm golden hues that are within two shades of your base color. Why? If you go any lighter than this, they might look a little too obvious—and a girl never tells her secrets, right?

Our various extension methods are perfect for adding highlights and color without having to put your natural hair through the coloring process, and they’re also great for achieving all-over color transformations! The best part is, since it’s 100% Remy human hair, the extensions can be colored to the level of your choice, so your hair can be customized specifically for you.
