As you know, darlings, I love my natural hair. If women want to go gray they should absolutely try it, but I understand everyone’s personal hair journey is different and while I don’t stray too far from my natural color I do like to play around with my cut. I’ve gone super short. I’ve worn it slicked back. I’ve worn it past my shoulders. All of these styles were in a little under five years! I’m also certainly not afraid if I think it’s getting too long to go into my kitchen, get out my scissors and take a little off myself! I know not everyone is as bold and that is why much like I did for 2018 beauty trends I went through all the fashion magazines for what the experts are forecasting for hair trends in 2018 and found some of my favorites for women over 50.
It turns out that younger women are going to be turning to silver for their hair, so if you are naturally silver than why can’t you do it too? Going to natural gray is a commitment and takes time. I started with a buzz cut and let my hair grow out from there to gray. You were looking for a project in 2018 anyways weren’t you, darling? I am smiling.
Short choppy bangs
Bangs are not everyone’s “look,” however if you are thinking about getting them to change up your style, magazines are reporting that shorter, choppier bangs are what’s in for 2018.
The ‘wet’ look
The wet look is back and when I wore my hair slicked back that’s exactly the look I had! I think this can be a bold look and I dare you to try it out for 2018! It might not even require a cut just a little product. You can’t get change with much less commitment than that.
Out or in? Curling the ends
As for a cut, the long bob still reigns this year. Which makes me so happy, darlings because I think it is a great medium!
Add a little red?
If you aren’t ready to go natural then the trend this year is to add a little red, according to Glamour. You don’t have to turn yourself into a full redhead, but highlighting or low lighting with red tones will be popular in 2018.
I’m all for women doing what makes them feel good and if that is new hair then you should try new hair! What do you think of these hair trends for women over 50 to try in 2018? Will you be trying any of them?
