Hairstyles for Older Women

Hairstyles for Older Women at Shape Hair Design in Teddington

At Shape Hair Design we know that as we get older, we still want to be stylish and beautiful!  Who says that hairstyles for women over 50 have to be boring and low-maintenance?  At our Teddington hair salon, we always aim to create a look that reflects your style and personality, so if you feel like it’s time to update your look, we’d be delighted to help you find a flattering contemporary style.

Short hairstyles are currently very fashionable for older women, but you don’t have to copy everyone else.  Shoulder length or even long hair can look stunning on older women and we can also give your hair extra interest with a new hair colour.  In this article you’ll find inspiration for your next hairstyle.  It’s time to throw away that unwritten hair rule book and find a cut and colour to make you look beautiful, whatever your age!

Mid-Length Hair Suits Older Women

Mid-length hair is one of those versatile looks which suits everyone – regardless of your age, face shape or hair type.   Hair which sits anywhere between your chin and shoulder is defined as being mid-length and this cut gives you the added bonus of disguising an ageing neck!  We think Diane Keaton models this mid-length style beautifully.

Side-Sweeping Fringes & Layers Make You Look Younger

A side-sweeping fringe is very flattering because it focuses attention on your eyes and not on any wrinkles that may be creeping across your forehead!  By adding a few layers to your cut your hair will also gain a youthful bounce and body.  This is a look that cheats time, and we think it makes Jane Fonda look fabulous!

Long Hair For Older Women (yes, really!)

Can older women wear their hair long?  Yes, they can!  Michelle Pfeiffer, Andi Macdowell and Julianne Moore are all elegant examples of mature modern women with longer hairstyles.  Forget the unwritten rule that once you hit 50 you it’s time to do away with your long hair.  If you love your long locks, there’s no reason why you should have to cut them short, just keep them looking their best by booking in for regular trims and conditioning treatments at our salon in Teddington.

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

Most women will notice a few changes in their hair when they reach the menopause.  Hair can become coarser, finer, thinner, or just a tad wispy (silver hair can seem to have a life of its own!)  If you’re worried your hair is now much finer than it was, a short, layered hairstyles, as modelled by Dame Judi Dench and Dame Helen Mirren, can transform your look.  With the right cut, some excellent hair products and an expert hair stylist, your fine hair can look fantastic again!

Talk to a member of our team at Shape Hair Design and we’ll be happy to help with any hair problems you may be experiencing.  We can recommend the right hair care and styling products to deal with hair loss, fine hair and hair breakage.  We can also recommend a specialist treatment to strengthen your hair and also stock a full range of Goldwell hair care products including their Scalp Specialist Anti-Hair Loss Spray and Serum which are specifically designed to give hair a thicker feel and improve the anchoring of individual strands to the scalp.

Grey Hair?  Don’t Care!

Silvery grey hair is currently one of the most popular hair colour trends among people of all ages, so instead of hiding it, why not show off your hair’s gorgeous silver-grey tones?  It’s such a striking look that people may even approach you to learn how you achieved the colour – it can be quite difficult if it doesn’t come to you naturally!

Your stylist can recommend products to keep your silver or white hair looking fantastic by neutralising any unwanted brassy tones which can appear, such as Goldwell’s Dual Senses Silver range.  If you don’t like your colour, we can also adjust the shade to give you a silver grey that suits you best.   We think Dame Judi Dench’s hair colour looks wonderful.

Hair Colour For The Over 50s

If silver hair isn’t for you, there are so many other choices.  At our Teddington hair salon, we create beautiful, bespoke looks for all ages using the latest hair colours from Goldwell.  Our colour technicians can create a multi-dimensional look which gives you full grey coverage.  All Goldwell colour products will leave your hair in great condition, smoothing even wiry grey hair.

If you’re looking for an exciting new look, why not take your lead from Dame Helen Mirren and have a bit of fun with fashion hair colours instead of natural shades?   White or grey hair will take any new colour very well.   Your hair colour specialists at Shape Hair Design will help you find the perfect colour to suit you and let you know how to maintain it.  Find out more about our hair colour services in Teddington here.
