New Aging Gracefully Rules For Your Hair

Aging gracefully really has new rules these days. We no longer have to look or act like “old ladies”. My 94 year old friend asked me just yesterday if I would order her some more wrinkle cream as she was starting to have deeper wrinkles!  My grandmother, who died of old age at 72, never did anything to her face. She had white hair pulled back into a bun at the nape of her neck. She never dreamed of coloring it!   How things have changed.

Lets talk about hair color. I have used it since I was in my 30′s.  That was when my hair stylist advised me to do highlights to cover up my silver strands that were starting to show. Today I have mostly white hair (like my grandmother), but I would never dream of not doing something to it.  Over the years I have eased up on the depth of color.  It makes it a lot easier to maintain.

If your hair is 50 percent gray or less, it is better to get highlights. They add dimension to your hair color, which can brighten your complexion says Ted Gibson, a celebrity stylist and salon owner.  All over color doesn’t always reflect light like streaks do. This can make your skin appear flat and dull. You can also stretch out your visits to the salon, as the roots will be less obvious. Hidden highlights can be woven in under the top layer give the most natural look. They don’t show up in your part instantly. Stick to streaks that are within two shade of your base color.

If you are more than 50 percent gray, you can always color your hair first and then add highlights. Try going a lighter shade than your hair had been as it will be more flattering to your skin. When I was younger, I would color my hair red, but over the years I lightened that until now I just use a blonde. It was not a drastic change as I did it over time.

How should you style your hair as you age? You don’t have to have Golden Girl puffs. Longer hair is no longer considered hippy, it’s hip. If you feel good about the shine and texture of your hair, let it grow. Have it layered so that it frames your face and doesn’t drag it down. As you age, hair becomes dryer and more brittle, so you will need to have a conditioning routine. Do deep conditioning on at least a weekly basis to nourish and strengthen the hair.

Pulling your hair back and up, either in a ponytail, a bun or a twist can give you a sophisticated look. When you have your hair away from your face, light can reflect off your skin, which can be very flattering. How you style it is how you can accomplish that. Aim for soft and polished rather than a severe granny bun. For a ponytail, add texture first with a volumizer. Then instead of using a brush, gather your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck, using your fingers. Accessories can add a youthful touch.  A jeweled comb slipped into a French twist or a flowered pick stuck into a chignon can do that.

Isn’t it great we don’t have to follow the rules our grandmother’s did!  This helps to give us the motivation to stay up to date and look beautiful!
