  • I'm 36 and have this problem. I recently cut my hair to my shoulders and have been dressing more sophisticated - it's helped.

  • I have the same problem. I'm 26, and I get mistaken for a teen mom a lot. I don't worry about it though, because I'm going to like looking younger when I'm older! :)

  • Enjoy it while you can - time marches on and the years will eventually show.

  • The way you dress has alot to do with it try to dress more modestly, wear dresses instead of jeans. I get this alot too I love it though, cut your hair that will make you look older and wear dark colored make-up instead of pastels.
