Should Your Approach to Your Hair & Beauty Change in Middle Age?
I know I'm not there yet but these are just some thoughts i've been having. We all get older it’s a fact of life but should age change how we act, dress and present ourselves? There are some people who think it should, and there are others that think it shouldn’t. E.G. My mum is always debating with herself about whether its OK for someone her age to shop in TOPSHOP. I guess it’s not an easy thing to get your head around. Here are some points to keep in mind as you think this question over.
The Expectations to Change Your Approach to Hair & Beauty as You Age.
I believe there are societal expectations on people and how we look. Take me for example, I'm always being told that I don't look as old as I am but how does someone my age look? I'm not sure if it'sbecause of how I dress. This might not be a particularly good thing and if you're like me you might want to ignore these norms entirely. Maybe you’re sick of doing what’s expected of you and want to make your own decisions for a change. For other people, going against people’s expectations is something that’s not so easy to do. You will have to give this some thought and make that decision for yourself.
Thinner Hair Can Become a Problem.
One of the major hair problems we might face as we get older is thinning hair although it's not something I'm particularly worried about ( if you've seen my baby pictures then you'll understand why) but nevertheless I know that this is a problem that is very common and many people don’t know what they should do about it. From what i've seen choosing a shorter hairstyle is an option many people go for when they find themselves facing this problem. It’s a good solution, but there are other alternatives such as volumising products that you can use to improve how your hair looks. You can also improve your health and diet to boost the health and vibrancy of your hair so don't worry too much.
Your Body Will Change As You Age, Are You Prepared for That?
I'm definitely not, but sometimes confronting these aging issues and accepting them can be the most important step of all. No matter what your body will change as you get older but is that something you’re prepared to accept? You can manage those changes and make yourself more healthy to make the whole aging process a little easier on you. For some people, plastic surgery is an option worth considering, it helps to mask body changes that they’re not prepared to come to terms with. I'm not sure if i'd go under the knife again or just grow old gracefully, it’s not for everyone, but it’s a legitimate option that you shouldn’t necessarily rule out.
If Your Approach is Still Working for You, Why Change?
There is no need to change, and if you have a style that is working for you, why change things up? You shouldn’t feel pressured to change your approach to style, hair and beauty if you don’t think you need a change. Confidence is hard to come by, so if you have it, carry on doing what you’ve been doing. Everyone is different, and the aging process can impact people in different ways. Don’t feel pressured to do certain things or taken certain steps. And, at the same time, don’t feel like you can’t make changes if you want to make them; just find your own way forward.
