24 Flattering Hair Colors for Women Over 50 to Look Younger
The best hair colors for women over 50 are shades that can either hide or enhance gray hair without damaging it. It can be challenging to choose a color that makes you younger-looking by covering your silver strands and keeping your hair healthy. That’s why I created this guide and gallery of photos.
According to colorist Lizett Gomez from the Artika Salon in CA, when it comes to coloring your hair in your 50s she says, “I recommend staying more natural with your hair color. Stay away from going too dark because it’s harsh on the hair, skin, and features. Dimensional and more natural colors are better because they soften their features and camouflage grays.”
A hair color that adds warmth back into your mane will help you bring back that youthful glow – and make it last longer!
Gomez’s go-to product is Aveda’s hair colors. “Either permanent or demi depending on the woman,” she says. “Older women in their fifties are more susceptible to allergies and chemicals. Aveda is plant-based, so it’s not harsh on the skin. It also covers those grays really well.”
If you’re in your 50s and are indecisive about going lighter or darker, always opt to go lighter. Hair naturally lightens as you age, and lighter colors like ash blonde, honey, and platinum are sure to blend into your natural gray hair better.
