Hairstyle Ideas for Older Women at Gore Hair Salon in Columbia SC

Older women are giving their younger counterparts a run for their money when it comes to looking great, but if you’re stuck in a time warp with your hairstyle, help is at hand!  While classic hairstyles such as the bob and pixie cuts stand the test of time, if you’ve had the same style for the last two decades, it’s time to shake things up!

Let us give you a hairstyle that is modern with a hair color that suits your skin tone.  Below you will find some Instagram celebrity pics which show some of the most popular hairstyles that women ask for.

Short & Sassy Hairstyles for Older Women

Best Hairstyles for Mature Women - Gore Salon Comumbia SCActually, this first beauty is our own client!  She is the perfect example of how short hair on older women doesn’t have to be boring or matronly!  If your hair is getting thinner or lacks volume, talk to your stylist about a body-boosting cut.  Letting super short layers grow in while keeping hair stacked in the back is an instant style – and confidence – booster!

Mid-Length Hairstyles Suit Older Women

The hair length that looks good on everyone – no matter what age, shape or size they are – is mid-length.  That means just below the chin and hovering anywhere between your chin to shoulders.  Plus, if you want to hide an aging neck, this style can really help!  We think Diane Keaton gets this look absolutely spot on.

Side-Sweeping Bangs & Layers Make You Look Younger

A side-sweeping fringe can take years off your age 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 works well for Jane Fonda!

Long Hairstyles on Older Women (Gasp!)

Can older women wear their hair long?  Of course they can.  Just look at celebs like Michelle Pfeiffer, Raquel Welch, Andi Macdowell and Sofia Loren!  Forget the unwritten rule that once you hit 40 you have to cut your hair.  If long hair suits you, there is absolutely no reason why you should feel the need to cut it.  Just make sure you have regular trims and conditioning treatments to keep you hair looking fabulous. 

Disguise Fine & Thinning Hair – Top Tips for More Mature Women

A post shared by @helenmirren on

Most women see changes in their hair once they hit the menopause.  It can become finer, thinner, more coarse or a little bit ‘fluffy’ (grey hair tends to have a life of its own!)   Short hairstyles, as worn by Helen Mirren, can be great for disguising fine hair – all you need is the right hair cut, some great hair products and a little know-how.

Talk to your stylist at Gore Salon in Columbia / Irmo SC – we 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.  We may recommend a specialist treatment to strengthen your hair such as OLAPLEX to improve fine and thinning hair.

Silver grey hair is one of the biggest hair color trends we’ve seen in recent years so if your hair is a gorgeous silvery color, why not keep it and show those young’uns 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.  We think Judi Dench’s hair color is simply fabulous.

Hair Color For The Over 50s

It’s time we all took a leaf out of Helen Mirren’s book and had a bit of fun with our hair color – remember her pink hair at the 2013 BAFTAS when she was a sprightly 67 years old? Today, older women can rock just about any hair color but, rest assured, your color specialist will help you find the right tone to suit you.
