After 50 years, the hair becomes thinner and the hair mass becomes lighter. The long hair of our youth does not have the same shine. Fortunately, there is a multitude of haircuts that reboost the hair and give it a second youth. With a nice volume, these cuts have a powerful signature and rekindle shine. How to choose your hairstyle to be a happy fifty, well in his sneakers? Franck Perez, manager for Lucie-SaintClair, gives us his expert advice.
Regardless of age, what matters is adopting a hairstyle that makes you feel good. Over time, the nature of the hair changes and sometimes requires a few scissors. But the main objective is to favor a cut adapted to the morphology of your face. "After 50 years, to choose your cut, you have to choose a volume and a length that will dress the face. The length must be adjusted according to the morphology of the woman", explains Franck Perez, from Lucie-Saint Clair.
We tend to think that after 50 years, short hair is a must. A preconceived idea according to our expert: "I am totally against the principle that from the age of 50, you have to cut your hair. On the contrary, you have to dress the face which becomes more marked with the passage of time... The length brings great femininity and allows to rejuvenate contrary to what one thinks." He asserts.
The key to volume lies in the gradient technique. In order to give more texture to the hair, which refines over time, it is important to work it all around the face, explains the hairdresser. "You have to degrade over 3 to 4 centimeters depending on the length of the hair, degrade around the face and above, a light fringe to obtain a natural and voluminous styling."
Timeless and mischievous, are bangs a good idea over 50? The pro's response is final! "One hundred percent 'for'! The bangs are a great idea. We go for a light version that does not weigh down the face. In addition, the advantage of the bangs is to hide the forehead and its small fine lines...".
For a young and fresh look, it is better to avoid turning to too classic hairstyles. "You have to banish overworked brushing. Over time, you have to play on the natural to give your style pep and youth." insists Franck Perez.
While we must strive for more naturalness and lightness in the cut, the same principle also applies to the coloring. "From the age of 50, we will favor natural shades. For example, for a woman with brown hair, you must stay in light brown tones with tips and lengths two to three shades lighter, an icy brown, cold colors.”, explains manager Lucie-Saint Clair. And when the roots are white or graying, and you want to conceal them, "you must then apply color at the root to hide them and on top to redo a few strands 2 to 3 times lighter. In order to give nuance, contrast, and a very natural side, like a hair that has been patinated by the sun on the lengths and ends" add the expert.
