Hairstyles For Women Over 50

Timeless Beauty: Hair Care Tips for Mature Women in Cheltenham

As we mature, our hair deserves as much attention as our skin. While silver strands may become a part of our journey, ageing brings other changes to our hair's texture, volume, and growth rate. At Martin and Phelps Hair Salon in Cheltenham, we understand the unique needs of mature hair and offer solutions to help you look and feel your best.

Maintaining Hair Health Holistically

To ensure your hair stays healthy as you age, consider a holistic approach. It's not just about individual strands; your scalp and nutrition play crucial roles too.

Regardless of age, a well-cared-for scalp is the foundation for healthy hair growth. The Martin & Phelps hairdressing experts can recommend the best products to help improve the health of your scalp.

Your hair's strength and growth are influenced by your diet. As we age, a balanced, wholefood diet becomes even more important. Foods rich in iron, zinc, Omega-3, and Vitamins C and B promote healthy hair growth. To ensure you're getting the right nutrients, ask your GP about supplements that are specially designed for older women.

Adapting Your Hair Care Routine

With age, your hair may become drier. Pay extra attention to the mid-lengths and ends to prevent dullness. Invest in nourishing products and protect your hair from heat damage. Our hair treatments can help your hair stay vibrant and healthy, even after 50.

Remember that grey or white hair responds differently to conditioning due to its lack of colour particles. If you have fine or thinning hair, use lighter conditioner to prevent build-up.

Revitalise Your Look with Lighter Hair Colours

Choosing the perfect hair colour becomes increasingly significant as we age, as it can profoundly impact our overall appearance. In general, lighter hair colours tend to be more complementary for all skin tones as we embrace the beauty of maturity.

If you have naturally brunette hair, one attractive option is to incorporate subtle caramel highlights. These highlights work wonders by adding a touch of warmth and softness to your facial features, creating a rejuvenated and youthful appearance. Furthermore, highlights introduce depth and dimension to your hair, providing the illusion of fuller volume.

For a youthful and healthy complexion, opt for warmer hair colours such as golden blondes, rose golds, caramel, and honey-toned hues. These shades infuse a radiant and youthful glow into your complexion, enhancing your overall look. It's advisable to steer clear of ashy or cool-toned colours as you age, as they can come across as harsh and less flattering for your skin tone. Instead, embrace warm and gentle tones that beautifully enhance your natural beauty.

Chic Short Hairstyles for Women Over 50

Short hairstyles have become a popular choice as we gracefully enter our 50s, and it's not without good reason. Opting for regular short haircuts offers a myriad of advantages. It not only maintains the health and manageability of your hair but also simplifies your daily hair care routine.

There's a diverse array of short hairstyles to explore, ranging from crisp, blunt cuts to lively long pixie styles and charming choppy bobs. Among these, bob haircuts remain a timeless favourite that flatters women of all age groups. However, the beauty of bob haircuts lies in their versatility. They don't have to be sleek; you can opt for a more effortless and manageable appearance with a layered bob. This style allows you to retain some length while infusing vitality into lacklustre hair and enhancing volume for a chic and contemporary look.

Elegant Long Hairstyles for Women Over 50

When you reach the age of 50, there's no steadfast rule that mandates a shift to shorter hair. A multitude of renowned celebrities, including Sarah Jessica Parker, Catherine Zeta Jones, Jennifer Lopez, and Jennifer Aniston, showcase the enduring beauty of long hairstyles. Consider long, loose waves with a subtle side fringe for a youthful and carefree appearance. These waves not only add texture but also create the illusion of fuller volume.

A long side fringe can work wonders if your hair is thinning, offering the visual perception of added thickness. Our expert hairstylists can tailor this fringe to your hair's natural parting and direction.

For those seeking an edgier look, long shag haircuts are universally flattering. These cuts introduce layered elements that infuse natural movement, boost volume, and enhance texture. To maintain a light and dynamic appearance, opt for rounded layers framing your face at chin level, adding shape and depth. If you have fine hair, request blunt ends from your stylist, creating the impression of increased volume. Pair this with face-framing bangs for a flattering style that also conceals any fine lines you may be concerned about.
