Women may feel most secure about money and family in their thirties, but when it comes to their appearance, 28 is the magic number. At least that’s what researchers for Clairol concluded after surveying 4,000 women between 25 and 65 years old last year.
Apparently, approaching the big 3-0 doesn’t feel as dismal as it once did, with 28-year-olds, on average, not yet worrying about grays and lines and, instead, enjoying the best they’ve ever looked-and maybe ever will.
“The age of 28 has been pinpointed as the time in a woman’s life their hair looks the best, body shape is at its peak and confidence is at an all-time high,” said a Clairol spokesperson.
Although more than half of those surveyed are worried about losing their looks as they get older, the researchers deduced that “reaching and surpassing your twenties no longer triggers the downward spiral of your looks and self-confidence.” Additionally, Clairol suggested that “a little time put aside in hectic schedules for self-pampering and the odd beauty product can help keep you feeling young and looking your best.”
The Clairol spokesperson didn’t reveal whether or not the the company would halt hair-color sales to develop and sell time machines for those of us who’ve long since celebrated our 28th birthdays.
Do you agree with Clairol’s assessment? Did you reach your peak at 28, or do you get better with age?
