Help Aging Parents: A Round-up of Best Hair Style Options for Older Women

The more attention I pay to older women, the more convinced I am: if the goal is to look good, hair style is as–if not more–important than clothing. (For instance, a woman with a flattering hair style can look good in a night-gown.)

I know my mother–into her late 80’s–was concerned about her hair. And I’m guessing many aging mothers feel the same way and could benefit from a new “do.”  Todays post highlights 3 links, expanding on my more general August 2, 2012  post, Hairstyles for Old, Older Elderly Women.

Click the site below, if you have time for only one link. It’s very well organized: attractive photos grouped by hair style (long, short, gray, silver, fine), probably any/every hair style an older white woman could want. (I say “white” because  initially there were also hairstyles for black women when I put in this link, but they haven’t come up again. That’s frustrating; I’ll keep searching.)  offers short discussion of mature hair care and with photos highlighting hair styles of several stars 50+. This site has “an album”–over 204 images, not as well organized as the lovetoknow site, but very complete.

Finding an attractive hair style for an aging mother should no longer be a challenge. A good hair style makes everyone–regardless of age– look more attractive– another way to help parents age well.
