15 Hairstyles That Will Make You Look More Mature

When it comes to looking “mature” you probably mostly focus on things like makeup and outfit choices. The hair is often overlooked, even though it’s such an important part of the look. You might be rocking some amazing heels and red lipstick, but if your hair doesn’t fit the part, you could come off as…messy. Obviously, there is nothing wrong with some messy hairstyles here and there, but if you’re really looking to impress someone with your mature look, you’re going to need to work a little bit harder.

Of course, you don’t want to dye your hair grey and get a “mom” haircut, but you do want to look more ~adult~ and mature sometimes. Maybe you are going on a date or have an important meeting with a professor. You want to seem professional, but still cute. There are quite a few hairstyles that will make you seem mature while still staying trendy and chic. So, you can skip the pigtails and french braids, and try these looks when you want to come off as mature:


1. Medium-length hair with some waves is the ultimate “put together but still cute” look:


2. A high half-up half-down is ~flirty~ but also chic af. Pair it with a red lip for a glamorous movie star look:

6. A topknot with some loose curls will look very ~adult~ but still trendy:


7. A short hairstyle with a side part looks very mature and put together. TBH, this style looks amazing on anyone.


8. Straight and sleek hair makes you look like you are a ~girl boss~ ready to take on the world. Try it with a middle part for a true Kim K-inspired look:


9. A barrette can add a classy element to any hair style, especially if it’s gold like this one:


10. A low ponytail also shows that you mean business. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s a nice way to keep your hair out of your face:


11. Braids normally make you look younger, but with a short haircut they add a pretty element to your whole look:
