mid-length hair is very flattering for older women

Mid-length hair is a versatile style which opens up opportunities and suits everyone –regardless of your age, hair type or face shape.   Mid-length hair sits anywhere between your chin and shoulder, meaning that this style has the added advantage of being great for hiding those signs of ageing around your neck!  We think Diane Keaton looks marvellous with this mid-length style.

side-sweeping fringes & layers make you look younger

A side-sweeping fringe focuses attention on your eyes, and holds back the years to make you look younger!  What’s more, it will hide any wrinkles that are creeping onto your forehead!   By adding a few layers to your cut, your hair will have extra body and a youthful bounce.  A sweeping fringe look certainly emphasises Jane Fonda’s ageless beauty!

long hair can suit older women (yes, honestly!)

Does long hair really suit older women?  Of course it does!  Michelle Pfeiffer, Andi MacDowell and Julianne Moore are great examples of elegant, modern, older women with longer hairstyles!  There’s no need to listen to anyone who says that once you’re over 50 you must cut your hair short – if your long hair suits you and you still love it, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t keep it that way!  To keep your hair looking at its best, we’d suggest booking in for regular cuts and conditioning treatments at west with style hair & beauty salon in Westhill, Aberdeen.

disguise fine & thinning hair – tips for more mature women

The menopause brings changes in the hair’s texture and thickness for many women.  It often becomes finer, thinner or sometimes wiry or a bit fluffy – grey hair can seem to take on a life of its own! S hort hairstyles, like those modelled so beautifully by Dame Judi Dench and Dame Helen Mirren, are perfect for managing fine hair, especially if layers are added.  By matching a good haircut with some great hair products to add texture and a skilled hairdresser, your fine hair will soon be looking fantastic again!

Talk to your west with style hair specialist if you are having problems with your hair and we will be very happy to help you.  We always recommend the right hair care and styling products for hair loss, fine hair and hair breakage or a specialist treatment such as System Professional Balance Energy Serum.  This clinically proven product strengthens hair, and it provides anchorage to make thin hair stronger when used three times a week.  Ask your stylist if you would like some more information.

grey hair?  don’t care!

Silver grey hair is among the most fashionable hair colour trends of the moment, so if you are lucky enough to have lovely silver hair already, why not keep it that way?  Beautiful silver grey hair is so striking and eye-catching, you might even find people approaching you to find out how you achieved that colour! It’s often a difficult look to create if it doesn’t come to you naturally!

To keep your silver hair looking at it’s cool best, we recommend using a shampoo containing pigments to neutralise any unwanted yellow tones which can build up.  System Professional Silver Shampoo does this perfectly.  And remember, if you don’t like your current grey colour, we can adjust the shade to give you the silvery tone that suits you best.  We think you’ll agree that Dame Judi Dench’s white hair is simply beautiful.
