Style Your Hair
Tress It Up
The quickest way to up your hair game is to accessorise it. Add a fashionable headband or head scarf to draw attention to your locks. Put your hair up with a fun scrunchie or scrunchie scarf to give an upgrade to your everyday pony or bun. Clips can keep your hair in place while making it look fancy. Or you could simply top your hair off with a hat or a bandana.
Change Your Locks
If you’re current hair doesn’t make you feel confident, it might be time to get a new haircut. If you want a no-fuss cut, opt for a bob or a pixie. These are universally flattering and timeless.
Many women go for a bob to give them volume as their hair begins thinning with age. It’s short and works well with different hair textures – be it straight, wavy or curly. A lob (long bob) ends right above the collarbone and gives you the option to be able to wear your hair up if you want to. The low-maintenance pixie cut keeps your hair out of your face and brings attention to your facial features. You can top off this look with stylish earrings. Adding highlights will make your hair more multidimensional and look thick and layered.
Love your hair, but bored of the colour? Switch it up. Highlights give your hair some life and soften your appearance. You could choose the basic colours or go wild and try an unconventional colour like pink, blue, green or purple.
Do you want to ditch the dyes? Go ahead and own your silver hair. It has never been more in fashion. Straighteners and curlers cause damage to your hair so maybe it’s finally time to embrace your natural hair texture. Consult with your hair stylist and get recommendations on products that will help you along the way.
Be the Mane Attraction
Try something new at your next salon appointment and zhuzh up your hair. Dazzle everyone with your new hairdo and be your most confident self.
Do you like your overall hair but feel as though something is missing? Get some bangs. If you have a wide forehead or wrinkles that you want to hide, bangs can cover them up and turn the attention to your beautiful eyes. You could do full bangs, a middle part one or a side sweep fringe. It is extremely versatile, and you can choose which style suits you best.
Long Hair, Don’t Care
Want to keep rocking your long hair? Rock on! Use nourishing shampoos, conditioners and oils to keep your tresses strong and thick. So many hairstyles can be done with lengthy hair. You can put your hair up in a high ponytail or bun to give your face a lift and accentuate your cheekbones for a more youthful look. However, if your hair is too thin and delicate, a low bun or pony is always chic and sophisticated. Loose braids are always cute and don’t tug on your scalp.
Get Wigged Out
If you want to sport longer hair but your own isn’t thick enough, you can always get extensions to give you that volume and thickness. There are many options from real to synthetic hair, clip-on or sewn-in extensions. Speak to your hairdresser to determine what would work best for you.
