I am Stanley. A Unisex Hairstylist, Writer, and book lover. After 12 months of the apprenticeship program as a stylist, I started working with my boss for an extra one year. This time frame made me accumulate knowledge and experience in the hair industry, of which I will love to share with friends all over the world through my blog.

  1. Yes! Finally an article on mature women’s hair styles that actually use beautiful real life mature women! Thank you. Great article with super photos that I actually want to take to my hairdressers! Thank you

  2. Sadly as fab as these styles are there’s not ONE that my very fine blonde hair would style into 🤷‍♀️

    1. I know what you mean! I have fine starting to gray straight straight hair!
      These styles don’t work for me either
      Because the top falls all the time!

      1. Patricia,
        I have very fine hair also.
        I find the Stacked Bob makes my hair look thick
        It’s easy to style also

    2. Very interesting!!! I wonder about the products you’ve tried, I wonder about your expectations. Over the yrs behind the chair, clients expect hair to do impossible things. I’d love to know more about your haircare. If my hair is too short it is flat, too long and it’s flat. You must find the cut best for all your needs

  3. Cheers Stanley,

    How very intuitive you are!!!! Love it!!! My curly hair is almost to my waist & i really do not want to cut it. My husband loves it &, to be honest, sometimes a ponytail is all i can manage due to shoulder surgeries. Love Love Love the Deva but wondering if it will still work with longer hair. My hairdresser has decided to retire, and i am at a loss.

    Congratulations on your achievement, and Best Wishes for a wonderful Career. You Rock, Cheers

    1. Hi Catriona,
      Thanks for your kind words, I really appreciate them as it keeps me motivated to do more.
      I can’t recall how many times I got roasted for not showing haircut inspiration for women with long hair. hahaha
      And I think you should leave your hair long, Devacut does not work well with longer hair.
      Do take care of yourself and rock on your long hair, because you have every reason to do so.

    2. Catriona, my hair is long a curly too. I like a classic Andy McDowel long bob with layers. The layers give shape and allow it to be down without too much weight. When I want to go shorter I like the Madonna hair cut in like a prayer video- shorter layered shoulder-length bob. But Layers are the secret…I think.

  4. I am 56 years old and have long straight fine hair. I wonder. How the curly style you show here would look on my hair?

  5. Again….sadly for a lot of us “aging mature” women,our hair gets finer and thins out drastically. None of these styles would work or look good for us! Very pretty for a small handful of models tho.

  6. Sorry these hair styles are not very flattering. Some older ladies can wear long hair, but most look fresher and younger with shorter styles.

  7. .I am over fifty and I have waist-length dark- blonde hair.
    I wear my hair braided, curly, straight, up, down, messy bun and you name it!!!
    I do not let age define how I should dress or wear my hair or how I think.
    I must be comfortable and happy with myself first.

    1. I’m the same with mid length almost salt and pepper with curls. I do what ever . Half up , messy top bun , two low buns .braids Down with wild curls .I prefer my bangs out of my face so I normally have them pinned back . But a hair style that suits you is the hairstyle you like.

    2. That’s great, but I’ll bet your hair is medium to thick. Those of is with fine hair don’t have the option to wear it that way. I don’t want to let age define me, either, but I can’t pull off wsist length hair!

  8. I was a beautician for 30 years. I’m 51. My hair is long and healthy. I want to know why so many people think it’s ok to push any female over 50 into cutting their hair off because they are a certain age?

    1. In many cases. When your older short hair cuts lift your face. Makes you look younger. That’s why some women are willing to cut or wear their hair shorter.
