That’s Not My Age Podcast episode two: Jayne Mayled founder of White Hot Hair

— by Alyson Walsh

 

Having worked in the beauty industry for over 20 years, when Jayne Mayled, stopped dyeing her hair and couldn’t find the right products, she decided to create her own range. The founder of White Hot Hair takes a positive approach to ageing and is passionate about changing stereotypes. Her mantra ‘It’s not a choice between clinging or crumbling,’ is genius; the declaration that desperately holding onto youth and dilapidation are not the only ways of being. Jayne is the perfect person to talk to about grey hair. On feeling authentic and finally ditching the dye in her 50s (she’s now 61), she said, ‘ I wanted something that reflected the way I felt. I wanted my exterior to match my interior. I went grey early on and kept dyeing it but it became harder and harder to do.’

In the second That’s Not My Age podcast we discuss going grey, the increased visibility of older models, running a successful business and bad hair days. Taking a faff-free approach to haircare and fashion, Jayne insists that we don’t need loads of products and lives in an all-black uniform. Often with a textural twist or interesting detail and a pile of silver bangles, her outfit makes the perfect backdrop for her gorgeous grey hair.
