Hairstyles for Older Women

Hairstyles for Older Women at Segais Hair Salons in Wantage salon

Older women have often learned how to look elegant and find a hairstyle which flatters them, but if you feel you are stuck in a rut with your own dated look, your local Segais Hair Salon can help freshen up your style.  Simple and stylish short hairstyles for older women are currently very fashionable, but there’s no need to be bound by any rules when it comes to your hair just because you’ve turned 50!   Shoulder length or even long hair can look very good on older women and we can help add some interest to your hair with a new hair colour.

Pop into your local Segais hair salon in Didcot or Wantage and let us update your look.  We’ll find a hairstyle that suits your personality and lifestyle, and fully understand that hairstyles for modern older women can and should be both interesting and flattering!

In this article you’ll find some inspiring hairstyles for women over 50 and beyond.  It’s time to throw away the hair rule book and find a haircut and colour that is perfect for you, whatever your age!

Mid-Length Hair Suits Older Women

Mid-length hair is a versatile cut which looks good on everyone – no matter what your age or face shape.   Hair which sits anywhere between your chin and shoulder is defined as being mid-length, and as well as looking good, this style has the added advantage of being great for hiding an ageing neck!  We think Diane Keaton gets the mid-length look just right.

Side-Sweeping Fringes & Layers Make You Look Younger

A side-sweeping fringe is very flattering and will make you look younger by focusing attention on your eyes rather than any wrinkles you may prefer to keep hidden on your forehead!  By adding a few layers your hair will gain more youthful bounce and body.  A fringe certainly makes Jane Fonda look timelessly beautiful!

Long Hair For Older Women (yes, really!)

Can older women really wear their hair long?  Of course they can!  Just look at Michelle Pfeiffer, Andi Macdowell and Sofia Loren for elegant examples!  Forget the unwritten rule that says that once you’re over 40 you it’s time to cut off your long locks.  If you love your long hair and it suits you that way, there is absolutely no reason why you should have to cut it short.   We’d just suggest that you make sure it stays looking fabulous by booking in for regular trims and conditioning treatments at your local Segais hair salon in Didcot or Wantage.

Disguise Fine & Thinning Hair – Top Tips for More Mature Women

Most women do see some changes in their hair once they go through the menopause.  Hair can become finer, thinner, coarser, or just a bit frizzy (white hair can seem to have a life of its own!)   Short hairstyles, such as those show-cased by Dame Judi Dench and Dame Helen Mirren, can be perfect for disguising fine hair.  All you need is the right haircut, some great hair products to add texture and an expert hair stylist to create the look!

Talk to your stylist at your local Segais hair salon and we will be happy to help with your hair issues.  Please don’t feel embarrassed about thinning hair – it’s a problem we deal with on a regular basis.  We can recommend the right hair care and styling products for hair loss, fine hair and hair breakage.  We stock a wide range of Joico hair care products and can recommend a specialist treatment to strengthen your hair.

Grey Hair?  Don’t Care!

Silver grey hair is one of the most popular hair colour trends of the moment so if your hair is a lovely silver colour, why not keep it that way?  It’s such a striking look, you may even find people approaching you to find out how you achieved the colour!   Your stylist can recommend products to keep your silver or white hair looking at it’s cool best.  If you don’t like the colour, we can also adjust the shade to give you a silver grey that suits you.  We think Dame Judi Dench’s hair colour is simply beautiful.

Hair Colour For The Over 50s

If you aren’t certain that silver grey hair is for you, why not take your lead from Dame Helen Mirren and have a bit of fun with your hair colour instead?   Today, older women can try just about any hair colour with the added advantage that white or light grey hair will take a new colour very successfully.   Your colour specialist at your local Segais hair salon will help you find the right colour to suit your skin tone and let you know how to maintain it.  Find out more about our hair colour services here.
