Hair Styles older women

New Hair styles Older women As we grow older our faces change - as do our bodies. A hair cut that worked at age 32 may not look so good any more. But do not let anyone set you up in an old fashioned 'tight curls' halo unless it really looks good on you.

Hair styles older women usually range from short to shoulder length.

Many women choose a short haircut because it takes so little time to wash, dry and brush into place. The right cut can look amazing. I have seen more than one woman go into a wig shop and try on a number of styles just to get an idea of what sort of cuts look good.

Some women prefer to keep their hair long - really long. This works very well if you have a strong well defined face. You can pull you long hair back into a sophisticated chignon so the strong lines of your face are emphasized. If you have it, flaunt it.

Next time you go to the beauty shop, get there early and take time to browse through some of the hair style magazines. Carry a small mirror with you and if you see a 'look' that interests you, take out your mirror, look at your face and then quickly look at the photo - sort of superimpose your image on that of the model.

Do not be afraid to experiment. If you are not sure how to take care of a particular cut, ask your hair dresser for some tips. Some of the trendy short cuts require a bit of hair gel as you blow dry your hair so you can direct it to where you want.
