Hair Colour For Over 50s

Hair Colour For Over 50s

As we get older our skin tone changes. This can be down to a loss of pigmentation in our skin, just as we lose pigmentation in our hair. There are loads of reasons that our skin tone and hair colour change.

This isn’t a bad thing. It just means you need to reconsider hair colour choices. The hair colour you loved in your 30’s may not be the best hair colour for your skin tone when you’re in your 50’s.

When it comes to hair colour for over 50s there is a saying about going grey gracefully. However, this isn’t always the best option for some of our clients. Some of our client’s skin tones don’t suit grey hair colour. This is because it can be a very cool colour shade, that just doesn’t suit everyone.

Other clients just don’t want to go grey. They feel that they look more youthful with a natural colour hair, which for them just isn’t grey.

However, it is important to note that going grey doesn’t need to be boring. Some of our clients embrace their new grey hair and add to it with steel and metallic ash blonde colourings. A full head of these colour highlights can be a really drastic and eye-catching look. You can also have these colours added as foil highlights if you aren’t feeling quite so brave for a complete change.

Pastel colours are really popular as an option for hair colour for over 50s at the moment. This was a trend created by Helen Mirren who rocked the pastel pink hair colour a few years back, and the fashion trend has stayed. If you have a cool skin tone, a pastel shade can work really well for you.

The best thing you can do if you are considering the best hair colour for your 50’s is to book a hair consultation with our team. We will listen to what you are thinking and recommend hair colours that suit your skin tone and hair type. Our hairdresser can book you in that day to colour your hair in Yaxley, or we can book you in for a hair appointment at another time.

Turning 50 is far from boring – and we can help you see that! Contact us about the best hair colour for over 50’s and for you.
