Short Hair Ideas 

Do you want to trade those long locks for a sleek short look? We know you will have many questions about whether to go for short hair, so rest assured your talented Gavin Ashley stylist will guide you through your choices.

This shorter crop frames the face and looks great worn with a long fringe which creates softness around the face. Just because you’re over 40 you’re still fabulous and on-trend!

Layered Hairstyles For Women

Layered and textured hairstyles are a great way to make fine and thinning hair look fuller and thicker. We love how 83 year old Jane Fonda (yes 83!) is rocking this shaggy, yet classy hairstyle. 

If you want to embrace your white hair colour or blend salt & pepper tones with a natural looking hair colour then chat with your colourist about colour glossing. If you want to keep your grey hair colour but want to give it a lift, ask about our semi-permanent colours or add some subtle highlights. 

Casual Beachy Wavy Hair

A fashionable hairstyle for the over 40's with long hair is casual beachy waves. J Lo looks stunning here with some simple, unstructured curls – a quick and easy way to look fun and youthful. Just grab your curling irons, styling spray and give your hair some volume and bounce whilst looking effortlessly gorgeous.

Control Your Curly Hair 

Curly hair doesn't have to be hard work. Our stylists are all trained in how to cut and style hair that is wavy, frizzy, or has curls that are hard to control. Quite often a good hair cut and the right products is enough to keep your locks looking stunning all day every day. Our expert stylists are always happy to help recommend products to use for your specific hair type – all you need to do is ask!

We love how Kelly Hoppen embraces her natural hair type and we think she looks beautiful with this mane of curls.
