Age Appropriate Hair

“You should not have long hair when you are older” – to me this is utter and complete rubbish! I hear this all the time and I find it annoying.

I partly agree that “excessively” long hair as you get older may be tricky to wear and to deal with especially if its lost its Va Va Voom but it might be more about a statement look, hair and women have changed – its now all about confidence! So I feel, regardless of length, as long as your hair is kept soft, it does not matter really what length it is. It’s no different to wearing your hair too short, if it’s cropped & masculine then it is not going to flatter us with ease in our later years. Keeping it simple and soft works for most.

Age appropriate hair was something that we discussed a lot on 10 Years Younger, and whilst there are parameters, equally there is now much more freedom. So for me, it is all about the woman, her personality, her lifestyle, her budget.

Do you have a question for our multi-award winning hair doctor?


Due to recent changes with health & safety guidance, we will now require a skin allergy test on every client who has:

  • Used Home Dye kits
  • Had COVID-19 since their last colour appointment
  • Never had a colour service with us before
  • Have a colour appointment coming up

Since the COVID-19 outbreak and further immunisations, there is potential that you could be more sensitive to certain ingredients and processes involved in professional salon colouring. These skin allergy tests are required 48hours before your appointment but no more than 5 days before. 

Failure to do this will unfortunately result in your appointment being rescheduled, which we of course don’t want after this long wait! We will not be able to perform a colour service if you have not had your allergy skin test recorded and checked by our team. 

We don't want to make this difficult, but our priority is your safety. To book in for your skin test when we are open, please book online.
