The most flattering hairstyles for over-60s!

A haircut can make all the difference for an over-60.

Our hair starts to change as we get older. It can thin out, change texture, get drier and above all go grey. Our facial features change too and you may start to find that the hairstyle you sported in your 40s will no longer suit you.

You would be surprised how your hair can impact your life. If your hair looks fantastic, you will feel fantastic. We believe all women deserve to look and feel their best.

It softens your features and it will also help protect the skin on your forehead from the damaging effects of the sun. Framing your face is always a much kinder look than having your hair scraped harshly back from your face, highlighting all blemishes.
