Many people think that older women don't care about how they look. Ridiculous! We still want to look our best. We research hairstyles for older women and we try to pick clothes that make us look and feel great!
One of the best things about being 60 is that you don’t need to worry about what people think any more. You can wear clothes that make you feel great, change your hair as much as you want and pursue your passions, no matter how unique or impractical. One of my favorite things is meeting women who refuse to be put in a box – women who break the mold, without “trying too hard.” Perhaps that why I’ve always been fascinated by Helen Mirren.
When it comes to hair care for older women, we face specific challenges. One of the most common of these is thinning hair. Over the years, we have gotten used to wrinkles, age spots, saggy boobs and the dreaded middle-age spread. For the most part, we have come to accept – and even love – our aging bodies. At the same time, there is something about thinning hair that seems so unfair...
Our hairstyles have reflected our sense of style since we were little girls. When I was 6, I loved my pigtails. Then, as a young woman, I had a perm – please tell me why no-one stopped me! For the next 2 decades, I had hair that reached down to my waist. I actually used to straighten it with a real iron. Did you do something similar?
A woe to some, a blessing to others – grey hair is a transition that befalls us all. How can we complement our grey hair look with makeup? Join us in discussion with style specialist Penelope Whiteley who has some great ideas to share. Enjoy the conversation!
