Mid-Length Hair Suits Older Women

Mid-length hair looks good on everyone – no matter what age or face shape!   Hair length that sits just below the chin and hovering anywhere between there and your shoulders is defined as mid-length.  This look has the added advantage of being great for hiding an ageing neck if that’s something you’re worried about.  We think Diane Keaton gets this look absolutely spot on.

Side-Sweeping Fringes & Layers Make You Look Younger

A side-sweeping fringe will make you look like the years have been kind to you because it draws attention to your eyes instead of any pesky wrinkles that may be appearing on your forehead.  Add a few layers to your hair as well and you’ll suddenly begin to look more youthful with thicker, bouncier looking hair – it certainly gives Jane Fonda a timeless look!

Long Hair For Older Women (Gasp!)

We know what you’re thinking: “Can older women really wear their hair long?”  Of course they can!  Just look at the fantastic Michelle Pfeiffer, Andi Macdowell and Sofia Loren!  Forget the unwritten rule that once you hit 40 it’s time up for your long locks.  If having long hair makes you feel good, there’s absolutely no need for you to chop it back.  Simply ensure that you have regular trims and conditioning treatments at COUPE Salon in Ascot to keep your long hair looking gorgeous.

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

Having said that, most women do experience changes in their hair after menopause.  It often becomes finer, thinner, more coarse or a bit ‘fluffy’ (white hair often has a life of its own!).   To eliminate this problem, why not try a shorter hairstyle?  Short looks can be anything but boring – just look at Dame Judi Dench and Dame Helen Mirren!  All you need to make one of these sleek short looks your own is the right cut, some great hair products and a little knowhow from your expert hairdresser.

If you’re struggling with fine or thinning hair, talk to your stylist at COUPE salon in Ascot.  We’ll recommend the right hair care and styling products for every problem your hair throws at you, from grey hair, to fine hair, to thinning hair, to hair breakage and even to hair loss.  We may suggest that you try a specialist treatment to strengthen your hair and reduce breakage such as Micromist Deep Infusion Treatment, or to improve the density of your hair, such as Concentre Densifique from Kérastase.

Grey Hair?  Don’t Care!

Silver-grey hair is the popular hair colour trend that’s taking the world by storm right now so if your hair is already silvery, why not keep it that way and show those millennials a thing or two?   One of our expert stylists can recommend the best hair care products to tame your grey hair and bring out its naturally beautiful tones. Even if you’re not a fan of your shade of grey hair, we can adjust the tone to give you a silver-grey that suits you.

Hair Colour For The Over 50s

At COUPE, we think that Dame Helen Mirren is simply inspiring when it comes to having fun with your hair as you get older – remember her pink hair at the 2013 BAFTAS when she was a sprightly 67 years old?  Today, older women can any hair colour we choose but, rest assured, your colour specialist at our salon in Sunninghill will help you find a tone to make you look fabulous.
