Coming of age
Ambika says, “We can experiment with extreme or very vivid colours in our 20s. But as we mature, these very shades tend to make us look older.” She shares some tips for women who don’t want age to come between them and trendy tresses: • The idea is to keep your hair looking natural and healthy, with a modern edge. Experiment with rich shades of brown. Use lighter tones of brown to highlight. If you want blonde highlights, stay away from brassy tones. • Red is a classic favourite and adds richness and depth to your hair. Go for deep red or soft reddishbrown. Ensure the colour is not too vivid, it may look harsh. • When you start noticing greys, use ammonia-free hair colour in your natural colour family. Go for regular root touch-ups. Avoid having a hue you had when you were younger. As you age, your skin tone changes along with the texture of your hair.
