Senior Style Alert: Short for the Summer

Today’s short cuts are just right for a sophisticated look at the symphony, or outside on the Shell Point Golf Course. And Lou Redmond looks fabulous in this modified chin-length bob.

Lou’s style is worn smooth by using a round brush during the blow dry, which also provides lift at the base for added volume.

Want a different look for a special occasion? Try adding some curl for a wavy style or added fullness to this versatile cut. Large pin curls set on damp hair with mousse or a lightweight gel will result in a loose, controlled curl. Yes, pin curls are back! Finish with a little shine spray and hairspray to combat the humidity.

If you like your eyes and lips but want to see a little less forehead, a cut with a full fringe bang, like Lou’s, is perfect. This cut puts the best facial features in the spotlight, while the forehead is disguised.

A bang, a little on the longer side, enhances the cheekbones, making them seem higher than they actually are. Soft side layers, slightly pushed back, enhance the eyes and open the face, exposing Lou’s “baby blues.”

Pure white and silver grey hair color can be beautiful but, if you’re looking to turn back the hands of time, light blonde to light brown shades will take years off. Lou has a youthful neutral blonde hue with golden highlights peeking through.
