The hairdresser for the Queen and several other members of the Royal family, Denise McAdam, has revealed her secrets to having great hair when you’re in your 60s. And we have to say, her advice is excellent.
Ms McAdam has also styled the locks of famous beauties, Jerry Hall, Marie Helvin and Cindy Crawford, and she strongly believes the best hairstyle for anyone over 50 is one that ends at the jawline.
As most of us know, your hair changes quite a lot after menopause. Hair that was one straight and thick is now a frizzy, thin mess. Not to mention it’s grey, lifeless and untameable. Some of us just cut it all off while others have given up completely. But it doesn’t have to be like that.
Denise recommends creating the illusion of volume with dry shampoo. She told the Daily Mail, a spritz of dry shampoo (available from most chemists) around 10cm from your head absorbs any moisture from dampness. Move the spray in an arch from ear to ear, then brush your fingers through to blend.
She also believes that very long hair with a part is “massively ageing” but if you like that style, where it in a bun to lift the face. Take your locks to your shoulders and no lower.
A soft fringe is also a good look for the older lady as they “have a veiling effect on lines on your forehead”, says McAdam.
