THE NEW OVER 40 HAIR COLOR RULES
Bangs, layers and highlights are your best friends. Tousled pieces hide regrowth, so you won’t need touch-ups every 10 minutes. “A choppy cut with long bangs and bold, sunny streaks is an immediate de-ager,” says ORGANIC RAPTURE SALON colorist Julie Craig
TLC is key. Heat styling and chemical processing make hair porous and prone to breakage. Healing mask treatments and other hair-repair products are an absolute must. “Spend on hair treatments as you would on wrinkle creams for your face”.Youthful looking hair requires it!
Strong vibrant colors are tough on mature skin tones,” Julie notes. “It will expose lines and exaggerate blotchiness, brown spots or sallow undertones. But a honey blond or golden highlights works every time. If you have red hair lighten it a shade or two this will soften skin tone and bring out a peachy complexion.
