Hair Ideas for Older Women

Hairstyles for Older Women at Bliss Hair Salons in Nottingham & Loughborough

You know that 50 is the new 35, right?  Older women are giving youngsters a run for their money when it comes to looking stylish, but if you’re stuck in a hairstyle time warp, help is at hand!

Let us modernise your look, giving you a flattering hair cut & colour that suits you, your personality, lifestyle and hair type – all you need to do is carry yourself with confidence and have fun.

Below you will find some of the top hairstyles that many older women ask for.

Mid-Length Hair Suits Older Women

It’s a hair length that looks good on everyone, no matter what age – yes, we’re talking mid-length hair that hovers anywhere between your chin to your shoulders. 

Want to hide those neck wrinkles?  Layered hair can turn into the neck area to hide it a bit!  The award-winning actress Diane Keaton gets this look absolutely spot on.

Side-Sweeping Fringes For A Youthful Look 

A side-sweeping fringe can take years off your age because it focuses attention on your eyes and can also cover any wrinkles that may be creeping onto your forehead. 

Chop into the hair with a few layers and some texture and you’ll suddenly begin to look more youthful – it certainly gives singer Lulu something to shout about! We also love this look on the formidable Jane Fonda.

Long Hair For Older Women 

Can older women wear their hair long (oh the horror!)?  Of course they can.  Just look at Michelle Pfeiffer, Andi Macdowell and Sofia Loren!  Forget the unwritten rule that once you hit 40 you have to cut your hair.  If long hair suits you, there is absolutely no reason to cut it. 

Just make sure you have regular trims and conditioning treatments at your friendly Bliss Hair Salon to keep your hair looking fabulous. 

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

Most women see changes in their hair during the menopause.  Your hair can become finer, thinner, more coarse or a little bit ‘fluffy’ (grey hair tends to have a life of its own!)  

Short hairstyles, as worn by Dame Judi Dench and Dame Helen Mirren, can be great for disguising fine hair – all you need is the right hair cut, some great hair products and a little knowhow.

Your stylist can help with your hair issues by recommending the right hair care and styling products for grey hair, thinning hair, hair loss, fine hair and hair breakage.

Grey Hair?  Don’t Care!

Silver grey hair is one of the biggest hair colour trends we’ve seen in recent years so if your hair is a gorgeous silvery colour, why not keep it and show those youngsters a thing or two?  

Your Bliss stylist can recommend the best hair care products to tame your grey hair and keep it looking vibrant. We can also adjust the tone to give you a silver grey that suits you. 

We think Dame Judi Dench’s hair colour is utterly fabulous.

Hair Colour For Women Aged Over 50

Remember Dame Helen Mirren’s pink hair at the 2013 BAFTAS?  She was 67 years old and she totally stole the show with her wonderful new hair colour.

Today, older women can rock just about any hair colour but, rest assured, your colour specialist at Bliss will help you find the right tone to suit you.
