Need a help with my hairstyle...
« on: February 08, 2016, 04:27:10 PM »
Hello, girls  :) At the current time I am searching a new interesting style for my hair. I'm blonde and my hair is really long so my daughter suggested me to do a similiar one to the 7th example from this link I like this example, the idea for colour but I'm not sure if it's OK in my age? I'm 45 and anxious that such hairstyles are for younger ladies...

What's your opinions? Maybe someone tried to create a similiar hairstyle?  :)

If you love the color and style on you that's what matters. Notions of age-appropriate hair styles and colors are fading fast with good reason. If you love your hair you'll wear it with confidence and class and that matters as much as the color and style.

I say go for it. If you decide you don't like it after living with it for a while you have the length to change it and color can always be adjusted.

I agree with Styyna!  It's appears to be a subtle color in the photo.  It's pretty if you have the right skin tone for it.  Let us know if you go for it.  :)

I also agree with Styyna. At 45 you are a mere slip of a girl, anyway... :wink: If you think it suits your looks are your lifestyle go for it. Btw, thanks for sharing the link, lots of good ideas for hairstyles. I had a look at the other hairstyles for strawberry blondes and I also liked  #s11, 19, 22 and 49.

Agreeing with everyone else here - wear what suits your features, type of hair, and overall look. No need to cave into all this dreary so-called "age-appropriate" stuff that's been thrown at mature women. Go for it!:)

Why on earth not?

Ask the hairdresser to adjust the hair colour to suit your skin tone (warm, cool, etc) and you´ll be fine.

And, if you do not enjoy it, after can easily change it, cannot you?
