Leyla Milani’s Tips and Tricks For Sexy Hair at a Sexy Age

Looking great doesn’t have to drain your bank account, and you certainly don’t need to risk looking ridiculous just to try fitting in and feeling young again. Leyla Milani, creator of Milani Hair Extensions, wants to reveal a few of her secret hair tips and share her hair-do’s and hair-don’ts.

Boost your hair color with coffee and lemonade!

Leyla says, “For dark hair, make a strong pot of black coffee, then let it cool. Shampoo your hair with a cleansing shampoo. Pour the warm coffee on, work it through, leave it in for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with cool water and apply your favorite conditioner. Comb it through quickly, then rinse with cool water and proceed to style. For light hair, make a pitcher of strong lemonade (no sugar or honey) and follow the same steps.” Voila! Good as new!

Stay longer, longer.

Leyla says, “Conventional wisdom told ladies “of a certain age” to get their hair cut short. However, keeping your hair long can help you look younger – just look at Sarah Jessica Parker and Jennifer Aniston. They’re well out of their twenties but stay youthful with long hair.”

The Do’s and Don’ts!

Do: “Change it up often.” Change is good! Trade in that 90’s do for a sexy new you! “Incorporate real hair extensions for extra variety. Being able to go between short, medium and long hair is a great way to spice things up without spending hours and hard-earned cash at the salon” Leyla says. Plus, who wants the same look everyday?!

Don’t: Imitate tween stars. Choose a hairstyle that fits you and is age-appropriate.

Don’t: Go too drastic. Leyla says, “It is important to change things up every so often, but going too drastic may bring negative attention instead of that jaw-dropping head turn that everyone craves.”
