Hair colors for women over 50 are shades that either hide or enhance grey hair without damaging the hair too much. It can be a challenge to choose one that suits you well, covers your silver strands, and keeps your hair healthy. Don’t lose hope because I’m here to help you do just that!
From brunette to blonde, silver to red, your options are definitely endless. Not to mention the newest hair trends – balayage and ombres, it’s only a matter of picking one that will suit you best.
According to Colorist Lizett Gomez from the Artika Salon in CA, when it comes to hair coloring she says, “I like to recommend staying more natural. I definitely try to make them stay away from going too dark because it’s harsh on them and their features. Dimensional and more natural colors are better. This kind of colors softens their features and camouflages greys.”
A hair color that adds warmth back into your mane will help you bring back that youthful glow – and make it last for long! Take inspo from the adorable looks of A-listers Diane Keaton, Glenn Close, and Mary J. Blige.
Lizett’s go-to product is Aveda’s hair colors. “Either permanent or demi depending on the person,” she says. “Older women are more susceptible to allergies and chemicals. Aveda is plant-based, so it’s not harsh on the skin. It also covers those greys really well.”
Before a dye job, Lizett recommends doing these things. “Do color switching and put it next to your skin and face, so you can see it. Also, ask about your options – you can choose full color, highlighting, lived-in color, or demi color.”
If you’re indecisive about going lighter or darker, always opt to go lighter. Hair naturally lightens as we age, and lighter colors like ash blonde, honey, and platinum are sure to blend into your natural grey hair better.
