Mid-Length Hair Suits Older Women

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

Side-Sweeping Fringes & Layers Make You Look Younger

A side-sweeping fringe is very flattering and can make you look younger by focusing attention on your eyes whilst hiding any wrinkles that may be creeping onto your forehead!  By adding a few layers to your cut your hair will also gain a more youthful bounce and body.  A sweeping fringe certainly makes Jane Fonda look timeless!

Long Hair For Older Women (yes, really!)

Can older women wear their hair long?  Certainly they can!  Michelle Pfeiffer, Andi Macdowell and Sofia Loren are all elegant examples of older women with longer hairstyles.  Forget the unwritten rule that says that once you’re over 40 it’s time to cut your precious hair short.  If you love your long hair and it suits you that way, there’s no reason why you should have to cut it short.  To keep it looking at it’s fabulous best, we’d just suggest booking in for regular trims and conditioning treatments at My Hair Guru hair salon in Paisley.

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

Most women will see some changes in their hair after the menopause.  Hair can become finer, thinner, more wiry, or just a bit fluffy (silver hair can seem to have a life of its own!)   Short hairstyles, such as those modelled by Dame Judi Dench and Dame Helen Mirren, can be perfect for disguising fine hair, especially when layers are added.  With the right haircut, some great hair products to add texture and an expert hair stylist to create the look your fine hair can look fantastic again!

Talk to your My Hair Guru stylist we will be happy to help with your hair issues.  Please don’t feel embarrassed about asking us about thinning hair – it’s a problem we deal with on a regular basis.  We can recommend a specialist treatment to strengthen your hair and also stock a full range of Matrix hair care products including Biolage Fulldensity which is specifically designed to give hair a thicker feel and reduce breakage.

Grey Hair?  Don’t Care!

Silver grey hair is currently one of the most popular hair colour trends, 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 – 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 at it’s cool best by neutralising the unwanted brassy tones which can creep in.   We recommend Matrix So Silver, which adds shimmering brightness to white and grey hair.   Plus, 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 is simply beautiful.

Hair Colour For The Over 50s

If you aren’t certain that silver grey hair is for you, we have offer a fantastic grey hair coverage service using products from the Matrix So Color range.  These award winning products can provide either uniform 100% grey coverage or alternatively multi-dimensional coverage adding different shades and tones to your hair.  All products in the range will leave your hair in great condition, smoothing even wiry grey hair.

Alternatively, why not take your lead from Dame Helen Mirren and have a bit of fun with fashion hair colours instead?   Today, older women can try just about any hair colour with the added advantage that white or light grey hair will take on a new colour very well.   Your hair colour specialists at My Hair Guru hair salon in Paisley 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.
