You’ve always heard that after a certain age, particular hairstyles aren’t appropriate for you; whether it’s your length, the colour, or your use of extensions, yesterday’s rules may not apply to the vibrant and youthful you of today. When you are confident, feel comfortable in your own skin, and want to look good no matter what your age, rules are to be considered but applied in accordance with your own preferences. You’ll want to choose colours, cuts, and styles that make you look fabulous wherever you go in the wardrobe that you select. Let’s look at five things you should know about your hair if you’re an older woman with fashion savvy and a desire to look your best.
Embrace Your Hair’s Texture
You can spend a great deal of money trying to straighten your hair, add volume to it with harsh chemicals, or perm it until you’ve damaged your naturally beautiful tresses. To achieve true happiness you must be happy with yourself and the hair type that you have. You can discuss with a professional hairstylist the cut that will give your hair a different appearance without treating it extensively with curling irons and rollers. Keep in mind that you don’t have to suffer with grey hair if you don’t want it but using a quality hair colouring product and getting the right cut can help to protect the texture of your hair.
Consider Colouring at Home
There will be times that you’ll want to get the opinion and help of a professional hairstylist but you can colour your hair at home, especially if you’re on a budget. Make sure that you choose a colour that complements your natural features and a product that doesn’t damage your hair in the process. If you detest grey hair, there are plenty of good products that you hairstylist can recommend for use at home; then, when you can afford it, visit the salon for some touch-ups and discussion about the condition of your hair after you’ve coloured it for a while.
Highlights Can Work for You
If you’ve ever noticed a child’s hair, theirs has many shades that are blended together for a lovely look. Your hairstylist will inform you quickly that one colour may be boring and that highlights can add interest and depth to your hairstyle. You won’t need to use a great deal of highlighting, but framing your face can improve the look of your complexion and accent your natural eye beauty.
Make Sure Your Hairstyle is Flattering
The cut, style, and colour that you had at twenty-five may not be as attractive for you at the age of fifty so ask your stylist to be honest and tell you what will improve your hairstyle. If you haven’t experimented with new looks in the last few years, you may want to visit your local salon and ask for a professional opinion so that you’ll have a clear direction about a new cut and colour.
If you’re an older woman, don’t let your hairstyle keep you from looking glamorous and stunning; find a way to improve your cut, colour, and style and make your dramatic new debut.
