According to Marshall, the answer is to look beyond your age when contemplating hair styles. After working with a diverse spectrum of clients over the past two decades he believes that, “There are many elements we can use to maximize your hair style, but age is not one of them.” The foundation of your haircut should be based on face shape, bone structure, and personal style.
“I look at my clients and how they carry themselves daily. I consider both their professional lives and their more casual off-duty looks.” He believes that a person’s confidence is reflected in his or her hair style.
“It’s all about how you carry yourself,” he says. He goes as far as saying, “My definition of getting old is losing confidence.”
Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Lopez, and Gwyneth Paltrow are prime examples; looking at them conjures up notions of the “fountain of youth”. They can pull off a full array of sexy styles and look fresher than stars half their age. While it’s undeniable that they have beauty squads to give them a boost, it’s their high levels of confidence that will always impart natural allure without fail.
Marshall’s parting advice is, “Take care of yourself, be healthy and stay positive towards life. Communicate with your hairstyle, embrace your personal beauty, and you will look confident, sexy, chic and whatever else you feel inside.” So, go ahead and wear your long sexy do in all its glory. At the end of the day, age is just a number.
