Having a front flip requires you to pull your front hair all the way back. However, this hairstyle will draw attention to your forehead and eye area, making you look older than you really are.

2. Too Many Layers

Layers can add volume to your hair but don't go overboard, or they will appear dull and messy and even leave you with an outdated look.

3. Buzz Cuts

A closely-shorn hairdo might not be the best for you either. It can dramatically accentuate the signs of aging on your face.

4. Baby Bangs

These blunt-edged bangs might look cute, but they can emphasize your forehead wrinkles. And in most cases, a trendy hairstyle like this can make you look like you're trying too hard.

5. Short Curls

These closely-cropped curls are not forgiving when it comes to hiding the fine lines on your face. Plus, they're not a flattering look for people with volume loss.

6. Pixie Cuts

This retro hairdo has been going around for ages and still has its appeal, but sadly it doesn't leave any hair to cover your imperfections such as wrinkles and fine lines.

7. Wispy Bangs

Wispy bangs are tough to pull off if you try to hide your thinning hair. They can also draw more attention to the fine lines on your forehead.

8. Short Spikes

This rebellious hairstyle doesn't do any favors for mature women. Moreover, the layered spike at the top might not look great if your hair doesn't have much volume.

9. Bangs Near Eyes

Bangs with the wrong length can add more years to your look. If they're just above your eyes, for example, they may bring more focus to your crow's feet and fine lines.

10. Finger Waves

11. Pin-Up Curls

Pin-up curls are perfect for special occasions, but they may be out of place if you wear them on a daily basis. The outdated hairdo will make you look like you're from an older generation.

12. Undershaves

13. Bouffants

A bouffant will make you look like you're stuck in the past. And if this is not enough, the large amount of hairspray used to maintain it is damaging to your hair.

14. The Farrah Fawcett Cut

Farrah Fawcett's signature haircut does make your hair appear voluminous, but it screams the 1970s. You can go for other feathered cuts that add a modern twist.

15. The Chelsea Cut

This '80s hairdo is not for everybody. It might draw attention to your sagging jawline and the loose skin around your neck. Plus, it also takes a lot of work to maintain this tricky cut.
