We’re very sorry to burst your bubble but trimming or cutting your hair often will not make it grow at a faster rate. The hair follicles in your scalp determine how soon or quick your hair grows. In a nutshell, hair grows about a quarter to half an inch per month, whether you trim it or not. On a positive note, you can actually benefit from regular trimming because it will allow you to get rid of dry, straggly end which will significantly reduce hair breakage.
Limit brushing your hair to once in the morning and once in the evening. Brushing your hair too much will just encourage the sebaceous glands of your scalp to produce more excess oils. In addition, brushing will also spread these excess oils from the scalp down to the hair shaft and hair tips making your locks greasier than ever before.
Colouring the hair can really subtract years from your age if done properly. Ask your stylist regarding the best hair color that will compliment with your skin tone. It’s best to stay away from deep, monotone hair color because it can go very stark against your complexion (especially if you’re very fair) and make you look 5 years older than you really are. If you’re going for a very dark base like Kate Beckinsale here, opt for tone-on-tone highlights to finish the look so that your hair will look healthy and natural.

Adding spiky layers at the hair tips and cutting it shorter at the back and longer in front make the bob hairstyle edgy and modern.
