There are haircuts that rejuvenate, already have 40, 50 the 60. It is not that there are years left on the DNI, nor that they remove candles from the birthday cake, but its effect on appearance is almost so magical, or sometimes more than that of un lifting, a radiofrequency treatment or use a very good anti-aging cream -and with constancy-.

Because a good haircut, and the right hairstyle can do real miracles. And just as there are cuts that add volume to fine hair as if by art of birlibirloque, others have an effect similar to drinking in the fountain of eternal youth.

For years, to arrive at 30, 0 40, and cut your hair ‘to the boy’ was all one: think of your mothers and grandmothers, according to your age, and you will remember that few long manes they wore from a certain moment. Of my grandmothers and aunts, only one of my grandmothers carried a long white ponytail until well into the 70s -of course, I never saw her either with a skirt, He was only wearing pants. At ‘seventy-odd’ he cut his hair and made himself un pixie ideal, none of those carded cuts, who did nothing but confirm its rebellious aesthetic.

The reason that there was an age to cut your hair has a structural and practical part: “Over the years the hair changes, it tends to be finer and we usually have less quantity “, Explain Rachel Saiz from Saln Blue by Raquel Saiz in Torrelavega (Cantabria). And the shorter, then less ‘heavy’, the hair looks with ms volumen.
