Hairstyles for the over 40s
There’s no need to cut your hair as you get older. Short styles ARE gorgeous, but mid length hair too, can be very flattering. Be inspired by these famous women.
Try a little face framing softness.
Deborah Meaden (54) Working the carefully styled, ‘messy layers’ look. The movement makes this look flattering and more importantly, youthful. It gives life and height to flat hair, this is an expensive hair cut but worth every penny.
Pamela Anderson – Pixie cut, several inches off her hair and several years off her face. Not everyone can carry this style off, you need superb bone structure as your face is completely exposed.
Reece Witherspoon, OK so she’s almost 40 (she’s 37), but here’s a prime example of a slightly choppy, longer length bob on fine hair.
Cameron Diaz (41) Fringes – A long, side-swept fringe is your best option. Avoid a fringe that hits above the eye brows, which can shorten the face and make it look rounder.
Well, if you’ve got the bone structure…
What you look like from the back is important too!
Beautifully highlighted hair to create the illusion of fullness and longer hair with just the right amount of layering.
As always, condition is key. Dry, brittle hair will always age you. Regular conditioning and frequent home hair treatments (oils are particularly effective for a top up of shine) are the way forward.
