Hairstyles for Older Women

Hair Ideas for Older Women at Ruby Mane Hair  Boutique in Farnham, Surrey

Cuts & Styles for older women, ruby mane hair salon, farnham, surreyYou know that 50 is the new 35, right?  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!

If you’re still wearing your hair as you had it when you were 25, it’s time for an update.  While classic hair cuts such as bobs and elfin cuts stand the test of time, the tight curly perms of the 1980s are a definite no-no today.

Let us modernise your look, giving you a hairstyle that is flattering and a hair colour that suits your skin tone.  We can find a hairstyle that suits you, your personality, lifestyle and hair type – all you need to do is carry yourself with confidence and have fun.

Below you will find some of the top hairstyles that many older women ask for. It’s time to throw the so-called rule book out of the window and find a hair cut and colour that is perfect for the older women out there.

Areas We Cover






Mid-Length Hair Suits 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 ageing neck, this style can really help!  We think Diane Keaton gets this look absolutely spot on.

Side-Sweeping Fringes & 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 gives singer Lulu something to shout about, and Jane Fonda always looks incredible.

Long Hair For Older Women (Gasp!)

Can older women wear their hair long?  Of course they can.  Just look at the fantastic 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 at Ruby Mane Hair Boutique in Farnham to keep your hair looking fabulous. 

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

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 Dame Judi Dench and Dame Helen Mirren, can be great for disguising fine hair – all you need is the right hair cut, some great hair products and a little knowhow.

Talk to your stylist at our Farnham hair salon 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?  Don’t Care!

Silver grey hair is one of the biggest hair colour trends we’ve seen in recent years so if your hair is a gorgeous silvery colour, 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 Dame Judi Dench’s hair colour is simply fabulous.

Hair Colour For The Over 50s

It’s time we all took a leaf out of Dame Helen Mirren’s book and had a bit of fun with our hair colour – 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 colour but, rest assured, your colour specialist at Ruby Mane hairdressers in Farnham will help you find the right tone to suit you.
