Hair is a very emotive part of your body, embrace it at fifty. The stereotype of wearing long hair at fifty for many women is cultural. I noticed in Holland and the United kingdom women fear being mocked thanks to society’s expectations.

Therefore where women live has a massive influence on one length of hairstyle and colour.

But when it comes to long hair confidence, Italian women over fifty have no shame.

Italian Women

I noticed here in Italy women over fifty have very long dark hair. This silver Kim Kardashian hair trend is not popular amongst women here over fifty, let alone in their forties. Wearing very short hair is when they are well and truly in their late sixties.

Long Hair

Italian women love to wear very long hair and if so it’s always close to their natural hair tone. Dutch women like to wear very short hair and make it as white as possible or punk rock red.

Here long bobs are common. On this occasion, longer hair amongst women at fifty is even longer.

Two-Tone Browns

Our worse critics are the labelling of wearing long hair over fifty is taboo amongst ladies aged under 18years old. Look at Carrie or Charlotte from Sex and The City, are they not trending a very long hairstyle?

Women over fifty here in Italy will wear hair this long if they have the hair to do so.

Pantene Campaign

Natural Tones

It seems lighter colour tones are popular and if done well. It does give a more youthful and healthy over all outcome.

Even if they over sixty, they won’t opt for grandma looking hairstyles let alone colours. For some mid-length hair is still poopular.

Layering Long Hair

What is also popular is a Charlie’s Angels layering long hair. Mixing several colour tones to get a more youthful, playful overall look.

Breaking The Hair Stereotype

Spanish and Italian women don’t opt for the United Kingdom fear-mongering fashion and hairstyle bullying. They are not afraid to wear above the knee dresses let alone opting for natural colour hair tones with long hair.

No youthful lady would even dare challenge us, women, at fifty how to wear our hair let alone how to dress. We are Made In Italy and our hair is just as important as our shoes. We don’t follow the stereotype of lifestyle here in Italy, we live the La Dolce Vita. That means like this wonderful lady at 94. Who get’s her hair washed and blowed dried every week sipping champagne.

Be inspired by us Italian women as we are the Alta Moda trendsetters of the world. Hairstyles here in Italy is liking accessories. not a hair out of place. No one dares go outside with messy hair here.

As Italian women, we are not afraid to push back our hairstyle messages and go against the youthful stereotypes of the judgment of today. I am turning fifty in two weeks, it’s time to get rid of the dark hair colour. What should I opt for?
