Hairstyles for Older Women

Hair Ideas for Older Women at Mova Hair Salons in Virginia Water & Staines

You heard it here - 50 is officially the new 35 !  Older women have such style today and are much more adventurous with their hair but if you are stuck in a hair timewarp, help is at hand!

Still wearing your hair as you had it when you were 25?  It’s time for an update.  Classic hair cuts such as bobs and elfin cuts stand the test of time, but the tight curly perms of the 1980s are a definite no-no today.  Let us modernise your look, giving you a hairstyle that suits you, your personality, lifestyle and hair type.

Below you will find some of the top hairstyles that many older women ask for...

Areas We Cover

Mid-Length Hair Looks Great On Older Women

The hair length that looks good on everyone – no matter what age they are – is mid-length.  That's just below the chin and hovering anywhere between your chin to shoulders. 

Plus, if you want to hide an ageing neck, this style can really help!  The actress Diane Keaton gets this look absolutely spot on.

Side-Sweeping Fringes Make You Look Younger

A side-sweeping fringe can make you look younger because it focuses attention on your eyes and can also cover any wrinkles that may be creeping onto your forehead. 

Add a few layers to your hair as well and you’ll suddenly begin to look more youthful – it certainly looks sensational on the ever-youthful singer Lulu and actress Jane Fonda.

Tips for Mature Women on Disguising Fine & Thin Hair

Most women see changes in their hair once they reach menopause.  Your hair can become finer, thinner, more coarse or a little bit ‘fluffy’.

Short hairstyles, think Dame Judi Dench and Dame Helen Mirren, can be great for disguising fine hair – all you need is the right hair cut and hair products.

Talk to your Mova stylist who can help with your hair issues.  We can recommend the right hair care and styling products for grey hair, thinning hair, hair loss, fine hair and hair breakage.

Grey Hair is The New Blonde!

Silver grey hair is one of the biggest hair colour trends around, so if your hair is a gorgeous silvery colour, why not keep it and show those youngsters a thing or two?  

Your stylist can recommend the best hair care products to tame your grey hair and keep it looking vibrant. We can also adjust the tone to give you a silver grey that suits you. 

Hair Colour For Women Aged Over 50

If embracing your grey hairs is not for you, perhaps it's time you took a leaf out of Dame Helen Mirren’s book and had a bit of fun with your hair colour.

Remember her pink hair at the 2013 BAFTAS when she was a sprightly 67 years old?  Utterly fantastic. 

Today, older women can rock just about any hair colour but, rest assured, your colour specialist at Mova Hair Salons in Staines and Virginia Water will help you find the right tone to suit you.
