Majority think the rule for the best haircuts for women over 50 is short. This was correct until the early 20th century, but now, there are no more rules. Let your hair grow or cut it very short; it is now all up to you and working with a creative and experienced hairstylist. One major factor to consider with any style is color (dimensional color preferably) usually within a shade or two of your natural color will help make you look more youthful. Note: I am personally NOT a fan of the current “grey” trend on any age! However, the best haircuts, color & styles for women over 50 are the ones that ultimately make you look and feel your best.
Age will not make any woman to stop wishing to be beautiful and stylish. Even if you are in your 50s, you are still interested in the last trends and styles. When most women get older, their hair does become thinner. This is the reason why many mature women prefer to cut their hair shorter and the medium haircuts for women over 50 with fine hair have become really popular. So to help you decide what you may want or need, I have gathered some haircuts and styles in various hair colors for women over 50, so you can get inspired:
Short and sexy – Some of the haircuts & styles for women over 50 are short; most everybody agrees but this is not a must. These haircuts are very sexy and have a lot of potential. Add asymmetrical layers, bangs, or choppy layers for interest. The pixie haircut has become even more of a favorite haircut for many women over 50 especially with fine hair. These haircuts don’t need much maintenance or time to style; they look great in the morning and can be styled  seductively for evening.

Medium and classic – The layered bob with natural looking dimensional hair color is one of the best and most popular haircut styles for women over 50. Customized layering gives each woman an individual fresh and modern look. It works with many textures of hair, and suits most any face shape from jaw line to the shoulders. It can be styled fun & flirty to classy & elegant. Having a layered bob hairstyle means you will need to take care of your hair maintenance a little more – but this style is worth it!

Long and elegant – There are long haircuts for older women that will make you look really stylish, but you have to pay attention when choosing them. Haircuts & styles for women over 50 with long hair can give you a sophisticated look depending on the length of it. A long-layered or “Shag” haircut looks good on most all face shapes and works on most any hair texture. Adding dimensional highlighting and low-lights to a layered style gives it body, volume and interest. It can be worn down casual and wavy. Body waving your hair can give you a “beach” look or you can blow your hair out straight – but not stick straight (which can be aging!) You will need to take care of your hair more at home using a professional conditioner daily and hair mask every week.

Throwback Thursday: The Flat Iron

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in News, Publications, Tips, Uncategorized

By: Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Salon

A bad hair day for someone with curly, wavy, or somewhere-in-between hair can be a disaster. You can use sprays, mousse, gels and more to try to tame it, but sometimes you just need to bring out the big guns and show your hair who is boss. Many well-kept individuals swear by the flat iron as a daily weapon in the battle against bad hair days.

The flat iron sadly was not always in our arsenal, but came into focus just before the turn of the century in 1872 by Parisian man named Marcel Grateau. Marcel used heated metal rods to style and straighten hair into the most popular styles which women deemed as the “Marcel Wave”.

It took over 3flat iron0 years for a major advance to come to the market, but in 1909 Isaac K. Shero invented the first hair straightener to use a flat surface rather than rods. Two flat irons were heated and pressed together to smooth out curls.

Just a few years later, the first hair straightener to resemble what we associate with today hit the stage courtesy of Scottish Heiress, Lady Jennifer Bell Schofield. This double plated heated iron was hinged in the center to clamp and unclamp from the hair.

Even after this invention, many women, in a desperate attempt to kill the curls, would lay their little heads down on their mother’s ironing tables and take a scalding and dangerous clothes iron to their hair. Most were helped in this seemingly insane task by their very own family. Thankfully, that method was swiftly carried away after the 1960’s and we moved forward with the Lady Jennifer’s design.

From there, well, the rest is history. Much like the hairdryer things became safer as the years passed by. Most straighteners on the market today are made with ceramic or steel plates and plastic handles. As you look into your cabinets today, be thankful for the many people who singed their locks so you could look fabulous!

Have a great hair day!

Looking great is a matter of finding your own personal style!

February-March 2008 – Cleveland Woman’s Journal

Are you chicBy Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon

Looking wonderful is not about what’s “in” or the “latest.”  The word for women who look great all the time isn’t “fashionable”, it’s “chic.”  Unlike great beauty or wealth, whis is a sensibility waiting to be tapped.  To be chic is to develop a sustainable style, to look uniquely like yourself – the ideal you – whether you are wearing a pair of jeans and a ponytail or a formal with beautifully up-swept hair.  (READ ENTIRE ARTICLE)
