Rites of Passage

Keeping hair beautiful as you age with Aveda colour specialist Graham West.

Clients tell us that three distinct phases of aging can present a challenge to self-image; menopause, retirement and becoming a grandparent for the first time. Each of these may trigger a change of lifestyle, affecting not only what you do day-today but how you see yourself and how others perceive you.


At the same time, many women find their hair changes as they grow older, especially after menopause when the production of oestrogen slows down. It’s natural for hair to become finer, thinner and increasingly dry in texture.


It’s also common for dilemmas around colour to become more pronounced as the years’ progress. Some clients will choose to take their hair lighter. Others who have been colouring for decades will begin to question whether it still feels right and decide to embrace the grey.


The solutions to these issues will be different for each individual but whatever route you take, it’s important to achieve a link between your haircut, colour and style. The tone, balance and proportions of your hair need to work with your overall look.


If you want to reassess your cut and colour it can help to build a long term relationship with a stylist you can trust. A wise professional will be constantly moving you forward. By assessing your hair type, face shape, bone structure, eye and skin colour, and taking time to get to know you, they will hold your hand and take you on a journey.


We care for lots of older women who feel passionately about how they look and want to have fun with fashion. We invite you to visit the salon and ensure you feel comfortable before we touch your hair. Call today on 01386 860361 to book your complimentary hair care consultation with a skin test and Aveda samples.
