"Usually considered to be the perfect style for younger women but it can also work perfectly for the older ladies if done right."

As well as looking put together and polished, pulling the hair back can improve how taut and tight the face looks.

She continued: "By creating a sleek ponytail, you can pull back your skin, helping to give the 'Botox illusion' of brighter and tighter skin."

What's more, a sleek ponytail can cover up a hair insecurity many women face as they mature.

"These straighteners also have ceramic coated plates, infused with Argan Oil, which further promotes heat protection and leaves hair softer and brighter.

Thin hair ties might be cheap, handy and accessible, but they are also prime culprits for damaging and ripping hair.

While this does not damage hair from the root, it can ruin the cuticle, causing hair to look thin and frizzy.

There are many variations of the sleek pony, as hair can be gathered at the nape of the neck, crown of the head or towards the top of the head.

There are also several parting types that can be experimented with - although Hanna advised against one kind due to its ability to age the face.

The middle parting is often seen as too harsh for a more mature face, with side partings worker better to soften the complexion.

Bellissima's Hanna stated: "When it comes to styling partings on older women, certain styles can result in dragging the features down and adding additional years rather than the opposite.

"Generally side partings work better on older women thanks to their power to create a softer and warmer appearance. However, do keep in mind that different partings suit different face shapes!"
