Are you thinking about changing your hair colour? A flattering new shade can be instantly age-defying, if you get it right. Going a few hues lighter or darker can also be a great way to shake up your look and get you out of a style rut. In fact, most professional stylists recommend that you invest in a new hair colour as you age.
Celebrity hairstylist Anthony Yacomine says, 'The most common mistake women over 45 make when changing their hair colour is to stick with tones and shades that they wore 20 years ago. As you mature your skin can lose its colour, so you need to choose shades with a warm undertone like reds and browns.'
Choosing a warmer shade will help soften and lift your features. But then again, there's no reason why you can't go for a more drastic change as you age if that's what you fancy. Just think of actress Helen Mirren and her pink coif! If you're looking for a more drastic change then these hair colour ideas can also help.
Whether you want to find the best way to cover those greys, how to go blonder or darker, or even how to achieve salon-style results at home, let our round up of hair colour ideas inspire you.
Want to know to how to get the perfect red hair colour? Red hair is the trickiest to keep looking bright and vivid as we age but it can be done. Medium skintones look best in coppers or medium auburns, while those with olive skin should stick to dark auburn and burgundy shades. It's easier to go darker red than lighter red, but make sure it suits your skin tone. Reds are often not very long-lasting. Try the Majirouge Antique Red collection from L'Oréal Professionnel salons
