Try as we might, we can’t outrun time. What we can do, however, is even the playing field with an arsenal of anti-aging tricks. Whilst applying those retinol serums and hyaluronic acid creams, one of the biggest mistakes we can make as we get older is neglecting something else entirely: our hair. Sadly, no anti-aging skincare sorcery is going to amount to much if we’re still aging ourselves with dull ash blonde or too-dark brown strands.
Luckily, there are a few ways—or a few shades, rather—that’ll help you avoid any self-sabotage. The objective is simple. Get back that youthful glow by adding warmth and softness back into your locks and by always choosing the most flattering color for you. As long as you don’t stray to the opposite end of the spectrum from your natural shade, you’re going to luck out with these shades pulled straight from the fountain of youth. Read on to discover the best hair color for women over 50, and get ready to take years off your face.
