Most of the hottest hairstyles or colors for 2010 always pertain to young or middle-aged women or men, but what about the seniors? Just because they are older, doesn’t mean they can’t wear some of the coolest trends around. Seniors need to choose a style or color that makes they years younger, takes away wrinkles, slims their appearance, and gives them a instant lift.
Colors Seniors Can Wear
As far as color goes older women or men look wonderful with salt & Pepper, natural soft honey blonde highlights or lowlights, deep reddish-browns,and all sorts of red, especially if the skin tone is fair, or warm. Older guys look hot with a color 2-3 shades darker than their original tone. Keep it natural looking, add a few strands of highlights and please stick with a ash tone. The ash tone will take years away, and give the hair a very natural look.
Hairstyles Seniors Look Good In
For older women- Think chic and trendy like Glenn Close, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helen Mirren, Jamie Lee Curtis, Diane Sawyer, Jane Fonda,Barbara Walters, Candice Bergen, and even Catherine Deneuve.
For the men think sexy like Clint Eastwood, George Clooney, Sean Connery, Dennis Hopper, or Richard Gere. Your hair does not have to be dull and boring, just because your older.
Ask the stylist for a chin length layered shag, above the shoulder bob, texturized short messy style like a razor cut, page boy, crop cut, choppy shoulder length hair, cropped or layered. These styles can work for men or women.
Secrets To Consider Choosing Style
When choosing a hairstyle for senior citizens the number one key factor is length. The length of the hair has a huge affect with the person’s appearance. Very long straggly hair will make you look 10 years older.
Always choose a style that goes with your face shape.
Make sure to choose a style that suits your hair texture and density.
Find a hairstyle that is low maintenance. If you choose a style that needs lots of product, styling tools, and time your not going to be able to handle it.
Two things you must do in order to receive that certain hairstyle. One Never go to a salon when it’s extremely busy, especially if you are aiming for a new look. The stylist will be in a rush, and the hair will come out like crap. Not all stylists, but a majority of them work off of commission and try to push as many clients as possible. I do not agree with what some of them do. I feel the time with the patience is very important, and if it takes me 2 hours to do one client then so be it.
Second, Find a experienced stylist, and bring a picture of what you want. Ok, your hair will never come out 100% like the certain celebrity, but it can come out pretty darn close if the stylist knows what he/she are doing. Take small steps. You can always go back for more once you feel comfortable.
