If you are not happy with the way you look, perhaps you should consider changing your hair color. Many senior ladies try to hide their grey hair by dyeing it, but sometimes their new color makes them look older and washed out. In case you are giving dating for seniors a chance, you want to be the best version of yourself. Therefore, don’t make these common hairstyle mistakes which will make you look tired and older than you are.

Dark colors

Colors that are too dark can emphasize every imperfection on your face. They will accentuate your wrinkles and make you look pale and even ill. Keep in mind that natural hair never goes in one solid color, so choose a warm tone and get subtle highlights. On the other hand, make sure you don’t go overboard. Too many highlights can have the opposite effect and make your hair look damaged. Remember that cool-toned highlights are great for younger girls, but when you are in your 60s or 70s choose golden tones which will make you look more youthful.

Ashy appearance

In case you have a paler complexion, this smoky look will make you look washed out. So, if you are blonde or brunette, add some warmth which will brighten your skin.

Going too light

Colors that are too bright can have the same effect as dark colors. If you are not happy with your new hairstyle, just add some color with lowlights.

Fiery red

Redheads are usually hot and sexy, and there’s no point denying it. Nevertheless, you don’t want to make such a significant contrast between your hair and skin in your senior years. Just a few highlights or a little copper will make your whole look more natural.

Chunky highlights

Although dark hair with blonde or red highlights can look stylish and modern on younger women, this hairstyle is unnatural for women in their 60s. Therefore, make sure the color is well blended. This way, you will achieve a rather sophisticated look.

The wrong length

If you have no idea what looks good on you, just talk to your hairdresser and find the perfect style for your hair and face type. Keep in mind that hair thins with age, so you might want to consider going shorter.
