We all change as we get older, and often our style follows us. Finding new hairstyles can get a little more challenging, especially if you’ve been used to having one look in your younger years. Many older women want to remain trendy but aren’t sure what they should do. However, regardless of age, there’s no need to play it safe when it comes to finding a look you love. Here’s some hair inspiration for those looking for a change, identifying a style which suits you while staying on-trend.
Embracing Silver Tones
It’s easy to think there are only two options when it comes to grey hair – accept it or cover it up. However, you could also embrace silver tones, which can look fresh and vibrant rather than dull and grey. Helen Mirren is someone who pulls this off really well, but there are plenty of examples of how good this shade can look now that silver hair has risen in popularity. An expert stylist can help you find a shade which suits your skin tone and blends in with grey hairs which may be coming through to ensure it’s not a high maintenance look.
Many women start to look for something a little more sophisticated as they get older, and the long bob is a gorgeous style which doesn’t appear dated. Not only is it simple and elegant but it doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. Ask your hairdresser about products for mature hair which enhance gloss and shine through your locks.
Keeping It Long
Many older women feel they have to go short as they get older, waving goodbye to their long locks. But this doesn’t have to be the case, and there are plenty of longer styles which look beautiful and timeless, regardless of your age. If your hair is still in great condition, don’t be afraid to keep it long. Speak to a stylist about the best ways to maintain its texture. They may even recommend putting in some flattering layers to softly frame your face while adding volume.
If you’re feeling brave and would love to try a shorter style, there are some trendy ideas which can help you look younger and radiate that new inner confidence you feel. Read our guide to getting a first time pixie cut if this is something you’re considering. You don’t have to go super short if you’re worried about the style looking too harsh. A long pixie can achieve an effortless look, blending a cropped cut with longer layers to create more angles. Speak to your hairdresser about cuts to suit your face shape.
