How do I find a hairstyle that works for me? (I’m 60 with short hair but I’m hip and feisty and full of spunk. I don’t want Aunt Matilda’s do!)

Find a gay hairstylist!

Not always the best choice, and a stereotypical response!

true-from a hairstylist
shorter hair has the advantage of pulling the facial line and your observant eye; up. Short but featherey for softness is great-ifyou have the face for it, spikey is fun-sometimes you can get the same effect from the same haircut-with a good haircut and alot of product!

Check out Kris Kardashian(Jenner) or Meryl Streep’s hair in “It’s Complicated.” Both look great on women our age!

LOL….I am 65 this year (OMG!) and my hair is long and straight, light reddish blonde. I have worn it this way most of my life ~ EASY maintenance ~ trim occasionally, keep it squeaky clean, conditioned ~ people NEVER guess my age ~ and I am often taken for late 40’s ~ but NEVER does anyone think I am 65. Oh ~ and my boyfriend is 42………lol……yep, I am lucky I guess….but that is what works for me!

I saw one of your posts, and looked you up. I am 59 and have very long dark hair – but I am going for a cut and color today. You look absolutely wonderful and I am happy about your relationship with a younger man! I really had not considered a younger man, due to “society” but maybe I should take a second look at this whole thing! Many blessings to you.

I wear my hair short (I am 55) and I was told by a hair stylist that the older you get, the younger your stylist should be…..

That is my stylist thought on hair. I just got mine cut again today by a really neat young man. It is really cute and spiked with it kind of down on sides and bangs swept to the right side. I love it. I have worn a spike for most of the time since 1985 and got more compliments on it than I ever have any other style. I was blessed with the silver platinum hair like my Mom but without make up on I look all washed out. Of course my latest pics on my web site, I have auburn hair. Oh well, that’s how I am. Always changing the color but pretty much stay with the style.

I have a hairdresser that I trust and she knows my hair and my lifestyle. I look to her for trendsetting styles and her professional opinion. I have driven out of town to have her cut my hair for the past 15 years. I get a few different styles a year based on the length I want and ease of maintaining the style from home. I let her do her thing because she is the expert! I have never been disappointed. My hair has great colour and shine, usually a trendy or classic bob cut. I am always complemented on my hair ..a testiment to her abilities. A good hairdresser is a just a necessity and they don’t have to give $300.00 haircuts…I have many friends that are getting $300.00 haircuts and colours and my hair quite frankly looks better and is better cut for a fraction of the money. There are lots of great hairdressers out there! Find one that loves to cut hair..that is the basis for a great look…

I’m with you – keep going back to one that looks good and feels comfortable but feels dated. What to do?

I am 62 and have kept my salt-and-pepper hair fairly short for years. This winter I decided to let it grow to help keep my neck warm — and just for the heck of it. I found that I love the feeling of my hair swinging when I move my head and blowing when I’m outside in a breeze. That makes me feel young! And I think my hair looks pretty good too. I think I’ll keep it longish for awhile. Variety is the spice of life!

The secret is really find a good hair stylist….I live in Los Angeles and once went to a very high fasion salon and the hair cut was $300 – can you believe it…I looked great but cannot afford that – but went back to my old stylist and asked him if he could follow the lines – he can but it was never the same…a good cut and good color….
