RED MARKET MIAMI: AGELESS HAIR

Michelle-Pfeiffer-michelle-pfeiffer-15011777-474-346

Is there such thing as an age appropriate hairstyle? What looked good on you when you were in your 20s or 30s may not be ideal in your 50s, but that does not mean that the older a woman gets, the shorter her hair must become.

When it comes to age and hairstyles, old rules such as “long hair after 40 only makes you look older” are just outdated and sad. Ali McGraw, Demi Moore and Bo Derek still wear their hair over-the-shoulder long and they look spectacular even though they are in their 40s, 50s and even 70s.

Today’s women are stylish and confident. Their independence has allowed them to redefine age and how GTY_michelle_pfeiffer_tk_131104_16x9_992it relates to fashion. Women in their 50s, 60s and 70s come from generations that set trends and broke away from conforming standards of their time. These strong, bold women aren’t about to be defined by the old rules now.

Wearing long hair over 40? Here are a few tips to keep you looking your best:

• Hair thins as we age. However, additional volume is easily achieved with a good cut that adds layers and movement around the face. Additionally, volumizing products will make the most of what you’ve got.

• Find your style, keeping in mind that layers, tapered sides and wispy elements will add volume and soften your face.

• Great looks include large waves, soft curls and tapered, face-framing cuts with a lot of feathery texture. Movement and visual softening are key.

• Keep all your lines flowing and soft. Avoid harsh lines and corners, including on the bangs.

• Stick with soft, natural colors. Don’t be afraid of grey.

• If your hair is very thin, go for a shorter or medium length cut. Not because of your age, but because it is best for your hair type.

In the end, there is no such a thing as specific hairstyles that are appropriate for a certain age group – or not. We have a wide range of choices for beautiful hairstyles at any age. The only things to keep in mind are the basic rules:

• Find a cut that really works for you, brings attention to your good sides and distracts a bit from others.

• Keep it soft, flowing and fun, long or short, but most of all keep it uniquely you.

Fashion, like life, is cyclical. What once was popular in the rag trade is now anathema in the fickle eye of public opinion. And what was scoffed at and cast aside has climbed back onto the catwalk and is sashaying its way down the runway, hoping to reclaim the crown and be hailed as chic once again. Modern fashion is having a love affair with the past and we’re all winning because of it, vintage looks are back. The hair trends of yesteryear have kicked down the door to the present and brought a bridge to the past with them. Here are some of the hottest old looks that should be burning their way into your closet along with the hairstyle to pair it with.

Leave the gender roles, take the sweaters: The cardigan sweater of the 50s is back where it belongs, draped around the shoulders of daring fashionistas and catching the wandering eyes of any boys next door.

Hairstyle Match: Try out the James Dean-inspired pompadour to give this wholesome girl next door classic a modern edge.

Circle the skirts and head back to the knee: The 50s are far from dead and the circle skirt is one of the biggest reasons. What was once a fixture of a more demure age is turning heads now. Pair this with some of the other items on this list and you’ll be the fashion queen of dreams from both then and now.

Hairstyle Match: Pair your knee length shirt with a shoulder length do, rock either the classic Elizabeth Taylor soft curls or the cascading waves of an old Hollywood look.

The wind cries fabulous: The 60s are known as the age of youthful rebellion and their uniform was fantastic. Micro minis and platform shoes have been strutting around town on the hips and feet of some of America’s hottest pop icons and unless you hop on the train, you’ll be left in the past. And not the good kind.

Hairstyle Match: In 1968 Mia Farrow shook the very foundations of Hollywood and the fashion world alike by turning her back on the idea that female fashion icons had to have long hair when she got a pixie cut for her role in the classic, “Rosemary’s Baby.” The hair, the mini, the shoes, soon Castevet and his cronies – not to mention everyone else – will be worshiping you.

Beach Inspired Hair has long been thought impossible without the help of an actual beach, but no longer. With a little help from some well-placed product, you can have the summery, fresh look without spending a fortune on a Bahamas vacation. 

While there are many products that promise a perfect summer style, one of the most popular and easiest to use is the sea salt spray. A comparatively new product, salt sprays have taken the hair community by storm in recent years. Everyone from high fashion models to businesswomen have successfully used salt sprays to liven up their hair. 

Sea salt sprays are easy to use. The first step is to find yourself a sea salt spray, such as the one made by Kerastase. For a simple, beachy look, apply the product evenly on the mid-lengths to ends of damp hair and allow to air-dry. Avoid your root area, as too much product buildup can lead to crispiness. You might need a little experimentation to find the right amount. Screen Shot 2016-04-25 at 11.20.22 AM

Salt sprays can also be used to give fine or thin hair a little extra grip for updos and more complicated styles; just spritz a little into your hair before you pin it up. You can even spray them on bobby pins to give them hold. 

Salt sprays are popularly used as a final touch to curled hair for tousled, beachy style. After you’ve finished curling or styling, finish with a little salt spray to give your hair some oomph.

The next time you’re in need of boho beach style, don’t rush to the airport. Some quality sea salt spray is all you need to achieve the perfect sun-kissed look and Kerastase is a brand to never disappoint. Visit the top salon in Miami, Red Market to get your bottle of Spray-a-Porter.
