Turn Back Time With A Short Layered Hairstyle Like Jane Fonda

Jane Fonda really shows the power of a good hair cut and the right colour to help give you a youthful glow.  (Although, to be honest, her super-healthy lifestyle and having a bit of work done may also help!)  Either way, it’s hard to believe she’s 83 looking at her here.

This classic layered and textured hairstyle looks fantastic, and the warm hair colour with highlights around her face helps to give her complexion a healthy glow.  Book an appointment at Blakes hair salon in Canterbury and we can plan your own time defying transformation!

Define Your Curly Hair Like Kelly Hoppen

If you are lucky enough to have curly hair, embrace it!  Kelly Hoppen’s stunning mane of beautiful curls provides wonderful inspiration!

Curly or textured hair can help you look younger than poker straight locks because its natural volume makes any thinning look less noticeable.  So forget about the straighteners and get ready to make the most of your curls!

To keep your locks looking fabulous not frizzy, it’s important to use the right products to tame and define your curls.  At Blakes we are a Moroccanoil salon,  so our stylists are very experienced at helping our clients get the best from curly and afro hair.   Moroccanoil is well known for it’s ability to make the very best of curly hair, so speak to your Blakes stylist for advice on the right products for you.

You Can Still Be Bold With Fashion Hair Colour!

As we get older it’s so easy to get stuck in a rut, just choosing the same hair colour, or simple focusing on covering any grey strands that are creeping in.  There’s no need to stick to safe colours once you are over 50 though, so why not make a point of changing up your hair colour every now and again?

Finding a colour that suits you well is the key to feeling confident with your look.  Generally speaking, very dark hair colours can look rather harsh as your skin gets older whereas lighter colours can soften the features and give you a healthier glow.  Speak to your Blakes hair colourist for advice on finding exactly the right shade for you.

For inspiration, take a look at Mary J Blige.  She changes her style regularly – from platinum blonde to her more natural dark hair colour; straight to curly; wigs and natural curls.  Be like Mary – have fun with your hair!
