Helen Mirren’s Grey Up-Do Is Ultra Flattering For Any Age


There was once an idea that as a woman got older, she should be resigned to the fact that her hairstyle should be short and unfussy. Luckily, those days are gone, and actors, from Andie MacDowell to Helen Mirren, are advocates of switching up one’s grey and silver strands to glamorous effect.

Helen Mirrens Grey UpDo Is Ultra Flattering

A recent example of this was at Dolce & Gabbana’s Alta Moda show in Sicily. Dame Helen, 76, attended the haute couture celebration wearing a series of show-stopping dresses. The first, a billowing blue printed chiffon dress from the brand, and the second, a technicolour-striped gown, were complemented by a glossy yet simple hairstyle that highlighted her healthy, luminous skin.

With a centre parting and not a flyaway in sight, Mirren’s silver hair was pulled down into a low ponytail, secured at the nape of her neck. The hairstyle not only highlighted her beautiful skin and make-up (also notable was her terracotta lipstick), but it made her hair colour glow, too.

So if you are looking to switch up your hairstyle for an event (or even day to day), why not take a leaf out of Dame Helen’s book? Her look is chic and sleek at every age.
