Andrew’s top twenty do’s and don’t for how to look younger
Andrew shares his top twenty do’s and don’ts for how to look younger which would be invaluable to a women over fifty choosing their hairstyle . These include changing or adapting your look every 3 years, avoiding overly trendy haircuts, having softness around the face (both cut and colour), and the benefits of using deep-conditioning masks.
Andrew’s personality and humour come through on every page, with an excellent step by step section on how to ‘get the look’, with detailed instructions and lots of photos.
Andrew talks about how to choose a good stylist, and says its absolutely fine to take photos of styles you like along with you- although it’s important to be realistic . No point in taking an unrealistic celebrity shot or even one of yourself taken several decades ago and expecting the stylist to recreate the look.
Good hair news for women over 50
There is good news for those women over 50 (like me) who don’t want to go short- Andrew says its fine to have long hair- although to remember that long hair with a centre parting suits very few women in their 20s, so is a hairstyle to be avoided in your 50s! For those of us who have moved to the ‘grey side’ there’s helpful advice too.
A fun read, packed with information and for younger, shiny, happy hair.
And if the tresses of the celebrity clients attending the Shiny Happy Hair book launch are anything to go by, his tips work!
