10 Fun Hairstyles For Seniors

There are some people who decide on a hairstyle at age 12 and never change it. Then there are others who have a new hairstyle/color every month! The fun thing about hair is that it can be changed as many times as you want, and every small change can make you feel like a new person. Sometimes we go through life events where we need to make a change to feel better. Some people turn to tattoos or perhaps a new style of clothing. But an easy and fun way to bring a change into your life is a new hairstyle. There are endless options to choose from and you can change your mind as much as you like.

As a senior, you might be stuck in your ways, or you might be ready to break out of your shell. If you are looking for a new hairstyle, the first thing you will want to do is decide on what type of look are you going for. Do you want a short and sassy cut or a long and dramatic look with highlights and bangs? Because there are so many options, you might feel a little overwhelmed. The Internet is a great place to start looking for hairstyle ideas. You can start bookmarking or printing out the hairstyles that you like. You don’t have to make a decision right away – you can look at these photos from time to time to decide which one you think will suit you the best.

Another fun way to “try on” a hairstyle without actually getting your hair cut or colored is to use hairstyle computer applications where you can upload a photo of yourself and then virtually “try on” different hairstyles and colors. An outing to the hair salon might be a big excursion for a senior citizen, so you want to make sure that you know exactly what you want to get done before making this trip. Using these virtual programs are a great way to do a test-run before committing to the actual thing. If you are still confused as to what kind of hairstyle you want, you can always ask your hairdresser for recommendations. They are very knowledgeable on different hairstyles, cuts and colors because they are immersed in that world everyday. Let’s go over a few popular hairstyles that you might want to try out for yourself.

  1. Short & Curly

As we get older, we still care about our appearance, but we might be in search of a low maintenance look when it comes to our hair. A really popular hairstyle amongst the elderly is a short and curly style. Most people have a natural curl or wave to their hair and in their youth, they might have spent hours straightening it with a flat iron. But when we reach a certain age, it feels great to embrace our natural look. When your hair is short, all you need to do is run a comb through it after you shower and let it dry naturally. Even if you wanted to spend time blow drying and curling it with a curling iron, the time would be significantly reduced because of the length of hair you’re dealing with.
