A friend of mine, well in her late 40’s and rocking ’em like a star, recently was asked by her neighbor: “Should you be dyeing your hair purple? Aren’t you too old for purple hair? You are almost 50!” Her answer? I better not tell you. More and more ladies go for a hair color that most people would call “Crazy”, or “Colors for younger people”, but blue, purple, pink… Some call them crazy, we call them Fun! The strong, vivid hair color trend is very much adopted among women in their 40’s and older… As a matter of fact, maybe even more by woman in their 50’s. Playful, bright colors, unicorn highlights are no longer associated with the young, experimenting with hair dyes is more than just a passing trend. It’s a statement.

Life begins After 40

When you reach a certain age, you are no longer thinking about what other people think you should be doing with your life, and dyeing your hair in a unusual color is just a way of clearly stating just that. Some women will say they do it to feel younger, some just want to try new things, but the common theme is – women after 40 know life is not getting any longer, and it’s time to live free.

Gradually Going – Purple!

Some women will opt for a fully colorful style, maybe just a highlight here and there, or a light, subtle splash of color, and purple is often the color of choice. It’s all about not being invisible, we don’t have to conform and disappear. Before you run to the store and buy a can of purple hair dye, visit a specialist, a professional colorist. Badly done color job can be a disaster!
