How to style gray hair like Linda Rodin?
There is so much to say about Linda Rodin and much to be inspired by. At her advanced age, she shows us that a woman needs to take good care of herself and always feel good in her skin. She refuses any limitations that life and especially age imposes on her. Linda has exceptional style and long hair, which she never dyes. On her Instagram account we can see a lot of ideas for hairstyles for gray hair, some of which we will look at in the following lines and from which you can get lots of inspiration! We hope to be able to show you that you can look the way you want, no matter your age!
Chic high bun
The high bun is a versatile hairstyle suitable for both everyday life and more special occasions. Of course, it can have many variations, but we’ll pay special attention to the casual and simple bun that looks amazing on Linda Rodin’s gray hair. She proves once again that it’s not necessary to try to do everything in the most perfect way, because there’s also a lot of charm in the slightly underdone result. That’s why you can try the same with your gray hair – comb it, lift it high, twist it and wrap it in a circle. Secure it with a few bobby pins or even an elastic. That’s it! All that’s left to do is choose comfortable clothes and why not a pair of sneakers, and enjoy your trendy, youthful look!
Beautiful side braid
Braids are so feminine, and Linda Rodin shows us that we can do them even in old age. If your hair is medium or long length, it’s undoubtedly worth a try to create a similar hairstyle. Braid all your hair into a simple braid starting at the top, then gradually work your way to one of the sides. Once you have finished, take the braid and start pulling the hair slightly to create more volume.
Messy space buns for a youthful look
Another hairstyle idea that is considered typically youthful, but the fashion icon manages to defy the imposed stereotypes. The messy space buns definitely have a rejuvenating effect, and Linda also knows how to combine her clothes and hairstyle in an amazing way.
Want to try this hairstyle idea too?
- Comb your hair and divide it into two equal parts.
- Take one part and pull your hair up. Twist it away from your face and then wrap it around in a circle.
- Use a couple of bobby pins to secure the bun.
- Repeat the same on the other side.
Classy low ponytail
The low ponytail is a classic hairstyle that suits both young and old women. Your gray hair would look amazing gathered in an elegant ponytail, as Linda shows us. And the best part is that this hairstyle only takes a few minutes and lasts all day. Here’s how to do it:
- If your hair is wet, dry it with a blow-dryer and brush. You can apply styling gel if you want to add more shine to your hair.
- Comb your hair neatly and tie it up with an elastic, aiming for the ponytail to start at the nape of your neck.
- Apply a small amount of hairspray to prevent the elastic from loosening during the day.
Elegant half-up, half-down hairstyle
The half-up, half-down hairstyle looks absolutely great and women of all ages can give it a try. Inspired by the retro style, it is romantic, feminine and one of the trendiest hairstyles at the moment. In the photo above, we see that Linda Rodin has opted for elegantly tucked hair at the top and loose flowing curls. In fact, the hairstyle can be done not only with a ponytail, but also with a bun or braid – the options are many. What we advise is to curl your hair beforehand to add more volume, as gray hair gets quite thin over time. Remember to apply heat protection spray before using a curling iron or straightener.
