While getting older and dealing with unwanted gray hairs may not be the most ideal, there is one perk that comes with it: an excuse to switch up your hair color! If you’ve ever wanted to take the plunge and try a new hue, whether blonde, brunette, or something else entirely, we’d say there’s never been a better time to do so. On the hunt for the best hair colors for older women? Below, we’re sharing 22 hairs color for women over 50, each of which could serve as the perfect way to switch up your beauty look.
Who said you had to shy away from gray hair? Rather, you can embrace it with an on-trend silver hair color. Bonus: This edgy color will require minimal touch-ups if you have gray roots! DIY the hue with the L’Oréal Paris Féria Multi-Faceted Shimmering Permanent Hair Color in Silver.
If you’ve ever wanted to rock blonde hair, now is the time! An ash blonde hair color is a great option for disguising grays thanks to its cool undertones. Pick up the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Medium Ash Blonde to color your strands at home.
More of a brunette gal? A dimensional brown hair color for women over 50 is where it’s at. The shimmering tones throughout a bronze hue will seamlessly camouflage stray grays between coloring sessions. Grab the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Bronzed Brown to get the look.
Prefer something a little outside of the box? We’ve got you covered. If you think that getting older means you can’t experiment with fun hair colors, we’ll be the first ones to say you’re wrong. One fun hair color we love for older women? A rich, burgundy hue! Add a fiery touch to your mane with the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Deep Burgundy.
Like we mentioned, dimensional hair colors are particularly useful for keeping a few pesky grays hidden. Enter a golden-brown hair color. This brunette hue features shimmering gold tones throughout to leave you with a gorgeous, glowing hair color. DIY your mane makeover with the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Hi-Lift Browns Downtown Brown.
Another bold hair color option? Copper! If you’ve ever wanted to give being a redhead a try, this is a great way to do so with a fun, bright twist. The metallic hue also happens to be one of our favorites for 2020. Use the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Power Copper to color your strands.
If ash blonde isn’t your thing, a warm, cream blonde might be! This option is ideal for natural blondes who are looking to keep things simple and restore a little vibrancy to their blonde mane. Give the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Natural Blonde a try.
On the other hand, there’s no rule saying you have to keep things natural. If you notice your grays tend to be whiter, a bright platinum hair color could be just the option you’re looking for. After all, you know what they say—if you can’t beat it, join it! And if you ask us, a bright, near-white mane is a super chic way to let your mane age. Embrace your strands with the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Absolute Platinum Extreme Platinum.
Raise your hand if you’re jealous of your redhead friends! Us, too. But why can't you have a beautiful red hair color, too? Trick people into thinking you’re a natural redhead by using the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Lightest Auburn to color your locks.
Silver and blonde make a stunning combo, especially when you’re talking hair colors for older women. This cool-toned blonde color features silver undertones that will beautifully blend with any unwanted grays. The L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Soft Silver Blonde is all you need to get the color for yourself!
Sometimes it’s best to stick with the classics. If you want to keep your mane looking naturally youthful, a chocolate brown hair color could be worth trying. This rich, warm brown hue is a staple that will never go out of style. Use the L’Oréal Pairs Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Dark Chocolate Brown to DIY it.
Speaking of a youthful mane, perhaps you’d like to take a walk on the wild side. Fun hair colors are for all ages! A smokey blue hue is not only a trendsetting hair color option, but it’ll also look equally stunning when those silvery grays of yours start to come in. Not bad, right? Pick up the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Smokey Blue to dye your hair.
More of a pink gal? We’ve got you covered! A light, pastel pink hair color is another stylish option for women over 50. You can rock an all-over pink mane or give a pink money piece a try. To DIY the color, pick up the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Smokey Pink.
Oh honey, do we have a gorgeous hair color option for you! Particularly flattering on those with medium and olive skin tones, this rich, warm honey blonde color involves notes of gold and caramel for a mane that looks as sweet as its namesake tastes! Use the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Dark Gold Blonde to get the look.
If you’re a natural brunette, consider giving an ash brown hair color a try. This color’s ashy undertones will help blend the cool, gray strands throughout your mane. To get ash brown hair at home, use the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Mocha Ash Brown.
Not only does mahogany happen to be a trending hair color, but it’s also a great way to add a subtle twist to your brunette mane. The brown hair color features red undertones for a gorgeous, warm head of hair. To get the look, use the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Dark Mahogany Brown.
Think natural redhead with a bit of flair, and you have a bright auburn hair color. This hue resembles a squeaky clean penny—and you can imagine just how stunning it is! Ideal for those with fair skin, it’s the perfect balance between subtle and bold. Color your strands with the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Red Penny.
A tried-and-true trendy hair color? Rose gold! This metallic hair color option is nothing short of striking. If you feel like straying a bit outside of your comfort zone, pick up the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Rose Gold to get the look.
We’re prepared to pop some champagne and celebrate this gorgeous hair color. A neutral, champagne blonde mane will always be a favorite of ours. Whether you’re 21 or 51, this hair color looks beautiful on all ages. DIY the shade with the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Champagne Blonde.
What happens when you mix brown with hints of red? An auburn brown hair color, of course! This is a great hair color option for those who want to add a slight twist to their brunette mane with the help of red undertones. Use the L’Oréal Paris Féria in Auburn Brown to dye your strands.
While you may feel you need to stray away from dark hair colors to disguise your grays, we’re here to tell you that’s not the case. A blue-black hair color will be able to help disguise gray hairs because of the shade’s cool undertones. If you have an olive or deep skin tone, this color will look particularly beautiful against your complexion. To get the look, use the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Deep Blue Black.
Last but not least on our list of hair colors for older women is a dreamy beige blonde hair color. This sandy blonde shade has us thinking of paradise, complete with an ocean breeze and fruity drink in hand.
