Flattering for Women Over 50

Q&A with style creator, Arlene Mooney

How would you describe this look?

This is a classic bob with a twist. My favorite thing about this is the asymmetry that allows us to go really short on one side (and get rid of some hair) but then retain enough length on the other side to still see a lot of curl around her face.

Any advice for someone considering it?

While it can easily be a look that air dries (especially when there is texture in the hair), using a styling product is very important to help define the curl and control it from getting poofy. I feel like it is good for many personalities and lifestyles, but especially someone who wants easy hair but still wants it to be interesting.

How would you describe this look?

This cut I did on my guest Megan is a shaggy bob/curly shag with bangs. My favorite thing about this look is the airy texture and the bangs for sure. I used a curl mousse by Bumble & Bumble and a diffuser for the finished look. This is her natural texture and I love her curls.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Choosing the right product for your hair type is key. Some of my favorite products are the Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray, Bb. Curl Mousse. This style works really well for anyone with natural texture because styling is minimal. You can use a diffuser or let you hair air dry.

Thick Curly Hair

Q&A with style creator, Jean Claude
Hair Stylist @ Jean Claude El Moughayar in Mont-Liban, LB


How would you describe this look?

This look is vibrant, fresh, and daring! With additional curls to the existing curly hair, we’ve created the waves that we need. With a short layered haircut, that’s short on one side and longer on the other, these curls were just a perfect fit.

My favorite thing about this look is the mood and character that it gives to every woman.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Any client requiring this look should have a bit of curl allowing us to modify with curl enhancing products. At the same time, she needs to have soft features with a daring personality and confident attitude. She is someone who wants to be different and doesn’t mind showing off her hair.

She would most probably be an outgoing and fashionable person who is ready for a wild look!

Bangs and Layers

Q&A with style creator, Debbie Chirolla
Hair Stylist @ OM Studio in San Juan, PR


How would you describe this look?

It is a fun and youthful look in tune with the current color trends of magenta and rose gold. As for the cut, I choose to leave the length of the hair and just trim the ends. I focused on shaping the curls by adding layers. I added bangs to define a better shape of the face.

The color adds depth and dimension to the cut with the OM Curls light technique created at OM Studio for safe lighting. I really like this style because it really shows that curly hair can also be fun and edgy.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Any drastic color process can change the texture and shape of the curl. The maintenance routine in your home is important for both the color and durability as for overall hair health. This type of cut is practical for most people with curly hair. The secret is in the right products for the type of curls the client has.
