When it comes to your hairstyle it’s easy to get stuck in your ways. That colour and cut that made you feel young once may have literally outgrown itself. Sometimes we cling on to things as an attachment to our youth or we become stuck in our ways and so bother less with our hair. As we age it’s really important to adapt our hair so that we soften, warm and even distract by making our hair the main attraction. The aim is to flatter your face and draw attention away from the key signs of ageing around the eyes or on the forehead, for example. These simple techniques apply to all women whatever their hair type or colour.
Dark, brown or fair hair it really doesn’t matter as a few soft highlights around your face will warm up your skin tone making you look healthier and more vibrant. Add the colour through the front if you have shorter hair and for shoulder length hair adding an Ombre means that the hair that naturally falls around the side of your face will be bright and act like soft lighting wherever you go!
Add volume and avoid hair flat to the face.
As we age, sleek hair that hangs down straight can drag a tired face down. Hair with a bit more bounce and volume can frame the face. It also adds impact, cleverly making not only your face the focus but allowing the face and hair to work together providing a more flattering overall look.
Use a soft fringe.
Whereas in the past you may have used a parting and swept your hair across and to the side, as we age a softer fuller fringe works. It not only hides any forehead lines that may have appeared but it helps draw attention to your cheekbones. This tends to be an area of skin that remains smooth on a woman as she ages and can also be cleverly enhanced using shading.
