Exploring the Best Medium Length Hairstyles for Older Women (Video)
If you are looking at hairstyles for older women, you have three basic choices – short, medium or long. In today’s episode of the Sixty and Me Show, I has the opportunity to talk with professional hairdresser, Denise McAdam about medium length hairstyles for women our age.
To be honest, I was so excited to do this interview. For most of my life, I have had medium length hair. During this time, I have found myself swinging back and forth between wanted to grow it out or cut it all off.
Maybe it’s just me, but, it seems like medium length hair is one of the harder lengths to deal with. What do you think?
What Makes Denise McAdam So Special?
Apart from the fact that Denise is a wonderful woman with a fantastic energy, there are many reasons to think that she is exactly the right person to help us delve into this topic.
In the U.K., Denise is something of a celebrity. For the last 40 years, she has worked with some of the most glamorous women on this planet, including celebrities and royalty. These are women who could choose anyone to cut the style their hair. They work with Denise because she has the skills, personality and experience to make them shine. Now, we can all benefit from her wisdom.
I hope that you enjoy my interview with Denise on the topic of medium length hairstyles for older women. If you have any questions for Denise, please add them in the comments.
Why is Medium Length Hair Appealing to Many Women?
Unlike short cuts, Denise explains that medium length hairstyles can require a little extra time and maintenance. The good news is that, once you pick a style, medium hair can give you plenty of versatility.
Medium length hair is also practical. You can grab it, pull it back in a ponytail and head off to the gym. Personally, I prefer using a scrunchie to keep my hair under control during Pilates.
In addition, medium length hairstyles provide a number of opportunities to accessorize with beautiful earings, hair accessories, barrettes and other hair decorations.
Finally, hair of this length can give you a little extra height and volume. It’s a great option for women who want to pull their hair up into a chignon or bun.
How Can You Take Care of Your Medium Length Hairstyle?
Denise reminds us that, regardless of length, medium length hairstyles require a great cut. This length hair also tends to require more attention in terms of products.
For example, after washing, Denise recommends using a volume mouse, hair spray or serum to give it a bit of ZOOOSHH. In term of specific products, Denise suggests serums from John Frieda or Percy and Reid.
She reminds us that hair oils can cause our hair to dry out, so, be careful. That said, Percy and Reed Volumizing No Oil for Fine Hair is still one of her favorite oils. Also, Denise suggest that “dressing creams” are coming back and recommends Osmo Thickening Cream.
What I love about Denise is that, even though she has been working in the hair business for 40 years, she still keeps up on the latest trends. She takes an innovative approach to helping women of any age to look their best. I hope that you enjoyed our conversation!
