Wedding Hairstyle Tips for Grandmothers of the Bride and Groom
“Keep the look simple and elegant,” suggests salon owner and hair product creator Philip Pelusi. “To do this, make sure the hair is in top quality condition. The quality of the hair fabric will directly affect the overall look of her wedding style. Shampoo and condition hair with an anti-aging hair fortifying product. Try P2® by Philip Pelusi® Age de phy® Shampoo and Age de phy® Conditioner. This will help infuse weightless moisture, strength, and lots of shine.”
Pelusi adds, “the trick to looking age appropriate but also current and on trend is to keep the hair styled as natural and soft as possible. Steer clear of any over hair sprayed helmet head looks. Also stay away for the old standard teased up-do. A chin length or shorter cut is very flattering and also age appropriate. Just make sure the cut is not too short or too long.”
Pelusi says the first step to a beautiful grandmother of the bride or grandmother of the groom hairstyle is to “get a good hair cut that flatters the facial shape and also works with their hair texture and density.” He recommends a classic chin-length bob and also soft, shorter styles.
Hair Color and Hair Texture Tips for Grandmother of the Bride and Groom
Fresh hair color is vital, explains Pelusi who highly recommends avoiding letting any grey roots show. He does approve of a lovely solid icy-white grey natural hair color for grandmothers of the bride and groom.
“Aging hair is often more fine, fragile, and also tends to need texture and volume,” Pelusi says. “Blow dry hair with a hair texturizing product that builds body inside the hair strand. Try P2® by Philip Pelusi® Increase® and as you style with a round brush direct the hair up and away from the root to create volume. As you go, lightly mist the roots with a root lifting product to lock in volume. Try P2® by Philip Pelusi® Define Root Lifting Spray.”
“Then to keep the look current, add some soft bend to the hair with hot rollers and a curling iron,” he instructs. “Curl entire head and allow hair to cool completely and with a wide tooth comb or bore bristle, groom hair into place, and lightly spray with a medium holding spray. This will help hold the style but won’t look stiff. Try P2® by Philip Pelusi® Rivet Holding Spray.”
