Look good, feel better…
…has been one of the consistent themes to help parents age well. Isn’t it uplifting to look in the mirror and like what we see? We all know that a bad hair day–or just plain bad hair–makes no one look good or feel very good, so naturally this article grabbed my attention.
It comes from More magazine http://style.lifegoesstrong.com/slideshow/6-short-hair-cuts-over-60-slideshow-image/1-cloris-leachmans-blond-pixie. Take a look, for those over 60 as well as for aging mothers and grandmothers. There are also styles for thinning and fine hair. I’m not a fan of the pixie cut, however, a stylist skilled doing layered hair could be an answer.
….. a few more shortish cuts: http://style.lifegoesstrong.com/slideshow/8-short-hair-styles-over-60-slideshow-image/1-pixie-hair-cut#7637614 with Helen Mirren and Jane Fonda again (but slight change to style) and 6 others.

And if you missed this August 9, 2012 post, there’s a photo of non-celebs (85 and 95) who look amazing for their ages. Are these excellent hairstyles for these elderly women!
I note Ronni Bennett Time Goes By blog began Hair Loss posts on May 19th. No solutions yet, but she’s researching, as am I.
May 21 Time Goes By Ronni Bennet finds a really good hair dresser who knows how to cut, is able to give her a cut and new, shorter style that conceals her scalp. (Post has photos.)
May 23 I went to a really good hair dresser for a consultation; decided to get my hair cut on the spot–before losing courage. Result–a shorter, not short, style. See June 2nd post and tips.
