I have always worn my hair shoulder length and liked the feeling of my hair touching my neck. But that good feeling vanished when I looked in the mirror – who is that old girl looking out at me? Reluctantly I admitted it was me, and decided it was time to cut my hair short.
When I came to the hairdresser he asked, “What do we do today?” “We get rid of that old girl” I answered. He laughed, “Don’t say that.” He was polite of course.
When looking around it is amazing how many older, and even very old women wear their hair long; some very long – but it never makes them look younger; on the contrary! I do understand that cutting off those long cherished locks feels like losing ones youth.
I am convinced shorter hairstyles make a woman look younger. We can’t hide the extra years with flowing locks, they belong to the young and restless.
Walking out of the hair salon I felt naked, and looked in every window or mirror I passed to reassure myself that I had done the right thing. But hearing others say ‘Oh, I love your hair you look so much younger’ reassured me that I will never miss that old girl.
Remember that the face is the first thing you see when looking at a person and to enhance it there is nothing better than a nice hairstyle that makes you look younger!
And Always Remember – A smile Changes Everything!
What is a blind spot?
It’s the place on your skull where some of the hair has disappeared and trying to cover it by pushing the rest of the hair over it does not really help – I know!
But there is a solution. L’Oréal has come up with a Root Concealer. It is a spray which is easy to apply and covers our shame…..lasting until the next shampoo. And as you can see it comes in 6 shades – surely one of them matches your Goldie looks.
It is not only called MAGIC it really is – because the wind blowing our hair out-of-place is not a threat anymore.
And Never forget – A Smile Changes Everything!
PS – I could not find it in any drugstore, but it is available at Target or on-line at Amazon.
For a very long time companies like L’Oréal and Revlon have helped women hide any sign of white hair – a reminder of aging – and who wanted anybody to know that they were getting older? “I must have my roots done” my friends used to say while pointing to their scalp.
Well, having your roots done is the past, because the latest fashion fad is Gray Hair! And not only for older women, but for women of any age. As for me it is just happening at the right time because lately I have noticed my hair turning white and since I have never colored my hair and didn’t like the idea I was wondering what to do.
But seeing Helen Mirrem looking so beautiful I found the answer. I am now looking forward to having my hair turn white. And so can you!
Never forget – a smile changes everything!
