According to a new study, most women say that they think their hair looked best at age 29, because at that point in their lives strands were thicker and fuller than later on in their lives, but weren’t damaged from overuse of styling tools and products like they were in their early 20’s.

The Daily Mail reports that 45 percent of women had the most damaged hair in their twenties, and a third of women said they didn’t know which hair style looked best on them until around the age of 29. In addition, a woman in her late twenties has more disposable income to spend on hair products, adding to the chance that she will love her hair more than earlier in life.

Women also agreed strongly that the 1980’s was the worst decade in history when it comes to hair, and that the 80’s perm was one of the hairstyles that women regretted getting most.

“As we enter our late teens and twenties, most women have yet to find their signature style,” said Kérastase Ambassador Luke Hersheson. “Certain hairstyles come and go in fashion like any other trend and it's only natural that women try and replicate the latest look. Having said that, constantly changing styles and hair color can take its toll and, as we age, our hair density and condition can be affected.”
