Ever since I was little, I’ve always had long hair…a challenge for women in their 50s!
Mr. Murase says, “I don’t know what hairstyle suits me, and I’ve always had long hair since I was little.”
I heard that when she was in elementary school, she had short hair and became too boyish, so she decided never to do it again. Since then, she didn’t know what hairstyle would suit her, and even though she frequently checked hair specials in magazines, she couldn’t make up her mind, and somehow she kept her long hair.
In addition, the opportunity to go out has decreased due to the corona sickness, and I have not been able to spend more time on makeup and fashion than before, and I do not know what to do with my makeup as it was in the past.
A person who challenges the makeover: Akiko Murase (50 years old)
“Even though I wanted to change my hairstyle, I didn’t know what hairstyle would suit me, so I ended up staying with long hair all the time, so I want to have a modern and youthful hairstyle. I don’t know what to do on days when I want to focus on makeup, so I would like to know how to do stylish makeup without too much effort.” (Mr. Murase)
Haircut : Takafumi Ishikawa
“The theme of this hairstyle is ‘adult wolf hair’. While giving volume to the top, we will cut it using gradation and layering techniques while leaving the neckline. While keeping the length to a certain extent. , I recommend it because it gives you movement and lightness. It will look great!” (Mr. Ishikawa)
Makeup : Miho Suzuki
“Mr. Murase doesn’t like to make a lot of makeup, so I aim for makeup that changes the look with just a little ingenuity. You can get enough glamorous items even with this item.” (Mr. Suzuki)
*A haircut and beauty experience (nails, make-up, hair styling, photo shoot) will be provided as a set at the “Egao Beauty Salon”, a hair salon specializing in seniors. On the day of the shoot, we asked her to come with her usual natural makeup, and compare the before and after photos to see how much the hairstyle and makeup would change.
Transform into an autumn natural feminine style
Before cutting and makeup, we will select clothes for the photo shoot.
Due to the corona crisis, Mr. Murase has been spending most of his time at home recently, so he usually chooses clothes that are easy to move around in and items that are easy to wash.
For Ms. Murase, who mainly wears a rough T-shirt and jeans, stylist Mari Toki has prepared a trendy knit vest and a feminine pleated skirt in bright colors. All of them look good on tall Murase-san!
“It’s been a long time since I’ve worn a skirt,” Murase-san said with a smile on his face. I decided to challenge the autumn feminine style with a natural atmosphere.
Makeover point 1: Popular wolf hair in the 50s
After shampooing, it’s finally time to start the makeover from the haircut.
“The adult wolf hair, which is the theme of this time, is a hairstyle that is popular among people in their 50s, and it gives volume to the top while also giving movement, so it is also recommended for those who have lost the volume of their hair with age.Mr. I have plenty of hair, but my hair is straight, so it tends to look heavy.I cut it while calculating so that it will move lightly when it’s finished,” says Ishikawa.
First of all, the cut starts roughly in a wet state. If you have wavy hair like Mr. Murase, if you cut it while it is wet, the shape will change when it dries. increase.
“As you age, the amount of moisture in your hair decreases and your hair dries out, so your hair will inevitably become wavy. Also, like Mr. Murase, wavy hair is more noticeable when you have straight hair.” Mr. Ishikawa)
This time, if you add layers to your hair with a wolf hair cut to give it lightness and movement, you can cover the swell of your hair more than straight.
Makeover point 2: Fluffy with an omnidirectional dryer
Once you have the rough shape, dry it with a hair dryer.
Mr. Murase says that he can’t get the softness he wants because of his stiff and straight hair.
“If you have stiff and voluminous hair like Mr. Murase, your hair will become stiff, so if you blow the hair from different directions when drying your hair, the parting will not be noticeable and the hair will be soft. It’s a good idea to dry the ends of your hair, which tend to be straight, by curling them with your hands,” says Ishikawa.
By blowing the wind from the dryer in various directions, from the front, back, left and right, from the bottom to the top, the top has a soft finish.
Similarly, the bangs can be prevented from cracking by blowing the hair from the right to the left and from the left to the right. Also, the neckline is dried while being conscious of putting it out from the back to the front.
“Just how you apply the hair dryer can make such a difference! I’ll try it at home too.” (Mr. Murase)
Makeover point 3: Volume on the top + light neckline
After drying the hair thoroughly, balance the neckline.
“Mr. Murase said that he was against short cuts, so I cut it carefully so that it would be light and move without cutting the neckline too much,” he said. Mr. Ishikawa puts in scissors with great precision.
While adding roundness and volume to the top, gradually add layers to the neckline.
When it comes to wolf hair, the image is that fine layers are added from the top, but the recent trend is to keep the volume without adding too many layers to the top, while adding lightness to the neckline.
In this way, the gorgeous and light “adult wolf hair” that fully opens the charm of adults is finished! !
Makeover point 4: Natural makeup with a three-dimensional effect
Next is makeup.
Since he spends a lot of time at home, Murase says that he usually only gets by with sunscreen and BB cream to protect against UV rays. Even if she wants to change her makeup when she goes out, she doesn’t know what to do.
“Mr. Murase’s skin is naturally very beautiful, so you can cover it well with BB cream instead of foundation. However, you want to give it a three-dimensional effect. It would be nice to add a darker color to the sides of your face. Yes,” says Suzuki-san, who is in charge of make-up.
According to Mr. Suzuki, the base makeup uses a one-tone or two-tone dark color on the sides of the face to tighten the face and give it a three-dimensional effect.
Once the base is complete, proceed to point makeup.
Makeover Point 5: Improve your eyesight! 4 easy tricks
Mr. Murase, who is not good at dark and solid makeup, says Mr. Suzuki, “You don’t have to use dark colors such as eyeshadow, just apply a gentle brown to your eyelids to make them look firmer.”
When you want to create a different impression than usual, it is more effective to raise your eyelashes with an eyelash curler rather than using eyeshadow or other makeup.
Also, there is a secret to using eyeliner.
“Even people who are not good at using eyeliner can easily improve their eyesight by putting a light brown eyeliner just above the iris and around the eyes.
For those who are unfamiliar with using eyeliner, we recommend the waterproof and soft gel pencil type as it is easy to draw.
“In addition, it is also recommended to apply a slightly darker eyeshadow to your eyes like an eyeliner. By filling in the vacant areas of your eyelashes, your eyes will be tightened and your eyes will be more powerful.”
Also, as you get older, the parts of your face tend to flow outwards, so if you are conscious of putting your eyebrows inwards, your entire face will be tightened and it will make your face look smaller.
Makeover point 6: Cheek adds a three-dimensional effect
“The use of blush is very important to bring out the three-dimensional look of the face,” says Suzuki.
“If you apply blush from the high cheeks to the temples so that the widest part of the face is blocked horizontally, the color effect will make the highest part look tighter. You can create a three-dimensional effect while brightening your complexion.”
In addition, after applying it to the cheeks, gently apply the blush left on the brush to the entire face to improve the complexion of the entire face and prevent the cheeks from floating.
“If you choose a peach color for your blush, it will blend in well with your skin, giving you a natural yet fresh finish.”
In addition, if you apply a little mascara to your lower eyelashes, the width of your cheeks will be shortened accordingly, and you can expect a smaller face effect.
“By adding a three-dimensional effect to your face with eye makeup and blush, you can also have the effect of looking lively and youthful.” (Mr. Suzuki)
For the final lipstick, Mr. Suzuki selected orange red, which is popular this autumn.
“If you are not comfortable with dark lips, you can mix it with balm or petroleum jelly and use it to get a moderate color, prevent drying, and use it like a colored lip.” (Mr. Suzuki)
I see, if you use that method, you can add a natural gloss without using gloss!
Makeover point 7: Use glitter to make your nails look longer
In the image change project, we will finish it stylishly with nail color.
This time, the nail color selected by manicurist Marie Hashimoto is brown that matches autumn clothes.
“Brown looks too natural because it blends well with the skin, so I will combine gold glitter with small particles to give it a gorgeous look.” (Mr. Hashimoto)
When I asked Mr. Murase about his troubles with his nails, he said, “My nails break easily and I can’t straighten them out neatly. As a result, my nails keep getting shorter and smaller, and they come in different sizes.”
Mr. Murase’s problem is solved by adjusting the width of the lame part that is put on the tip of the toe! The gradation effect makes the size of the nail look uniform. When using this technique, it is recommended to choose glitter with small particles.
In this way, the beautiful hand is completed, and the makeover is over!
Transform into a mature and gorgeous look! Compare before and after images
Mr. Murase, who was worried about “I don’t know the hairstyle that suits me” before the makeover, how did you transform?
Let’s compare before and after!
■ Front (from the front)
Before the makeover, the long hair had a slightly heavy impression, but by adding volume to the top and lightening the neckline, it became a “grown-up wolf hair” with movement.
In addition, the natural yet three-dimensional makeup gives your face a sharp look and enhances your eyesight! The whole face was glamorous, and it gave a youthful and lively impression.
■ Side (from the side)
As for the sides, the back was a little tight before the makeover, but now the top is rounded and the face is clean. With the makeup effect, the side face looks lifted up as a whole.
■ Back (from behind)
The back is neat and light with a layer on the neckline. I don’t even care about the swell with the movement as a whole. The gloss of the hair is also up.
After graduating from the ❝ somehow long ❞ style for many years, I made a wonderful makeover to the modern “adult wolf hair”!
“I’m glad I took the courage to take the first step!”
Murase changed into a trendy knit vest and pleated skirt. The one-tone coordination suits her slim and tall body, just like a real model. A smile naturally spills out.
Her hair and skirt move softly every time she takes a pose, transforming into a natural autumn feminine style!
We asked Mr. Murase what he thought of the makeover.
“I didn’t know what to do with my hairstyle before the makeover, so I kept the same hairstyle for a long time. I was able to have a hairstyle that can be worn by
“I’m glad that you taught me how to create a three-dimensional effect just by changing the way you apply and line the items you usually use, and how you can use it when you want to change the atmosphere, such as when you go out. Today. I look forward to practicing the techniques you taught me.”
“It’s been the first time since my wedding that I’ve been treated so kindly by so many people (laughs). I’m glad that I was able to transform more than I imagined, and I’m glad I took the plunge and applied for a makeover project. Thank you very much.”
A few days later, Mr. Murase also gave me this impression.
“I just took care when drying my hair, as you advised me, and even when I woke up in the morning, my hair didn’t fly off and it was well put together. It’s easier and more helpful.”
He was able to clear the blow that he was worried about without difficulty, and he seems to be enjoying himself with a makeover. Keep trying new styles!
