Most often, we look upon our seniors whose hair seems to be neat but really does not have a lot of attention being paid to it. We assume that this is the senior?s choice. Most often this is not the case as the problem is that because of their age and perhaps certain illnesses they are not as capable of looking after their hair by way of styling as they may have in the past. This can be a real downer for the senior who would love to have the hairstyles that they have always been used to.
Many hairstylists now are taking into consideration the medical conditions of their senior clients and are able to produce better hairstyles and haircuts that are easier for the senior to look after.
Most often the senior is better to go with short hair as trying to pin up long hair can be an issue. Not only that, long hair when washing it is much more strenuous and more work. For the senior the short hairstyle is very easy to wash and easy to maintain. Even better is hairstyles that are short that do not require any type of curling. It is difficult for a senior to work with a curling iron for example.
There is nothing wrong with the senior having some highlights put into their hair to give them the extra body. One of the bigger problems with the seniors is that their hair is beginning to thin and it is a bit more difficult with short hair to hide some of the balding areas. With a little bit of work from a hairstylist and a seniors likes there is no doubt that something can be designed for that particular senior.
Another option for hairstyles for the seniors is to go with a good wig. Not because their hair is necessarily thinning but because the wig may be far easier for them to maintain.
These are particularly good for the women that really do not want to have their hair that short. Some individuals just do not like short hair and would not be happy with it. This is where it would ideally be great if they were to have their hair done short but have a wig that has some length and body to it.
Another thing that must be kept in mind is the seniors are on a fixed income and cannot afford perhaps a weekly trip to the hairstylist. Therefore, this is another reason why she really needs to have something that is suitable and easy for her to work with for herself.
Another problem is that many of the medications that seniors take affect the quality of their hair as well. Therefore, the hairstyles that take a little bit of work are going to be most frustrating for them because their hair is not going to be easy to work with because of the medications.
