What can I do with my black hair to help me look younger?

Lighten Up and Lose a Few Years

While it's true that dark skin shows signs of age slower than its lighter counterparts, that doesn't mean black women can not also take steps to look younger. Take for example supermodel Iman, who has taken years off her look by lightening up her shoulder length tresses.

Due to the fragile nature of black hair, especially that which has been relaxed, you will need to visit a professional colorist to copy this look. Your colorist can test your hair to be sure it can handle the lightening process and work with you to find your perfect color. The deep honey blond that looks so wonderful surrounding Iman's face, may be a little too light or still too dark to achieve the desired effect for you. To ensure a happy result, take your time selecting the right color and put yourself in the hands of a cosmetologist who has experience with your type of hair.
