Hairdressers For Stylish Older Women Near Me


Welwyn Garden City




JLo Looks Glamorous With Long Wavy Hair

Jenny from the Block looks simply stunning here with some loose waves in her long hair.  This youthful and fun looking style is easy to create – just use your tongs to add some gentle curls, adding volume and bounce to your hair.  To complete the look, you also need to make sure your locks are super healthy and shiny.

JLo shows us that  that older women don’t need to shy away from long hair.  To stop your locks looking looking straggly though, it’s important to book regular appointments with your Johnson Blythe stylist for a trim and conditioning treatment.

If you’re finding that your hair doesn’t have the volume it once did, speak to your stylist.   We can add some layers to give it a boost, and recommend the right products to add some texture. 

Look Youthful With A Short Layered Hairstyle Like Jane Fonda

It’s difficult to believe Jane Fonda is in her 80s looking at her here.  She shows us the power of a really good hair cut and the right hair colour to take years off your look.  (Although, to be honest, her years of healthy living plus having a bit of work done may also help!) 

This classic layered and textured hairstyle is a flattering shape, while the warm blonde hair colour with added highlights around her face enhance her complexion, giving it a healthy glow.  

Short Edgy Hairstyles For Mature Women

Over 50 does not equal boring hair cut!  As Tilda Swinton shows us, a short, edgy hairstyle combined with a vivid blonde hair colour can look chic and age-defying.

Finding a hair colour that really works for you can definitely make you look younger.  Whether your personal style is classy, glamorous, sophisticated or fun book a hair colour consultation and we will help you choose a bespoke new shade.  We are L’Oreal hair colour specialists so can help you with everything from a bold new fashion shade to a subtle blending of grey.

Own Your Curls Like Kelly Hoppen

If you’re fortunate enough to have curly hair, then go ahead and embrace it!   Kelly Hoppen’s stunning mane of beautiful curls is the perfect inspiration.

Having curly or textured hair can help you look younger than straighter locks because its natural volume makes any thin patches or widening of your parting look less noticeable.  So ditch the straighteners – it’s time for a diffuser to really make the most of your curls!

To define your curls and keep frizz at bay it’s important to invest in the right products.  Our stylists will be happy to recommend products for your specific hair type and the right hair treatments to keep your hair healthy and frizz free.

Older Women Can Be Bold With Hair Colour!

As we get older it’s just so easy to be unadventurous with our hair colour.  If you know a shade that you works fine for you, or you are just focused on covering up any unwanted grey, you could be missing out on a whole rainbow of other colours that might suit you!  There’s no need to stick to safe colours as you get older.   Why not make a point of changing up your hair colour every now and then?

It will always boost your confidence when you have a flattering hair colour.  Generally speaking, very dark hair colours can look rather harsh as your skin gets older whereas lighter shades can help to soften the features and give you a healthier-looking glow.  Speak to your Johnson Blythe hair colourist for advice on finding exactly the right colour to flatter your skin tone.

For inspiration, take a look at Mary J Blige here.  She changes her hairstyle regularly – from bright blonde to her more natural dark hair colour; straight to curly; wigs and natural curls.  Be like Mary –have fun with your hair!
