Almost half of women over the age of 35 believe they’re only just entering their “confidence era.”
DARIEN, Conn., Oct. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — More than three in five women (64%) admit that when compared to their younger years, they feel they’re a more confident version of themselves now. According to a survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Zotos Professional’s leading brand, AGEbeautiful, results revealed that three in five (61%) women surveyed say that they currently have a positive view of aging. The survey focused on attitudes and perceptions of aging, aiming to shed light on the empowerment of individuals embracing their age with confidence.
The survey is part of a digital campaign from the leading at-home professional hair color brand, aimed to help women look and feel their best. The findings help the brand to better understand the evolving beauty preferences of consumers in the context of aging and demonstrate the brand’s commitment to helping individuals to feel confident at any age.
Women are especially more confident today compared to before they turned 35. And in the next five years, 46% expect a further boost in authenticity. Two-thirds (67%) of women are actively looking for ways to become more confident in certain areas of their lives.
37% of women love testing out new hairstyles to keep their appearance fresh. Many women, 34%, also love trying new hairstyles to stay on top of today’s trends. The survey noted that the average woman* has tried three different hairstyles in the past decade, and 27% have tried five.
“I’ve witnessed the incredible transformation that occurs when women embrace their unique beauty and experiment with their hair,” said Christopher Naselli, celebrity hairstylist and salon owner. “It’s not just about changing your look; it’s about unlocking a newfound confidence that radiates from within. When we explore and celebrate all aspects of ourselves, we become the truest and most beautiful versions of who we are.”

“Women are rewriting the narrative of aging. It’s not about defying time, but rather embracing it with confidence and style. By experimenting with new hair styles, colors, and fashion choices, women are not just stepping out of their comfort zones; they’re stepping into the next authentic and empowered chapter of their lives,” said Michelle Ryan, Vice President of Marketing at Zotos Professional. “It’s a beautiful evolution, and AGEbeautiful is here to support and celebrate every bold step along the way.”
When it comes to fashion, the average woman* has tried three different wardrobes over the last decade, and almost one-quarter (23%) have tried six or more.
As a part of AGEbeautiful’s ongoing digital campaign, the brand has partnered with Dress for Success ®, an organization dedicated to empowering women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and career development tools. Their mission aligns with values of AGEbeautiful, as both believe that feeling confident in your appearance is a powerful tool for success.
AGEbeautiful proudly sponsored two tables at the Dress for Success “Women Who Inspire” Annual Power Lunch on September 27, 2023. This event brought together corporate executives, innovative thought leaders, and the women Dress for Success serves, and Gayle King, the esteemed television journalist and co-host of CBS Mornings, was featured as the guest of honor. As a dedicated and long-term supporter of Dress for Success, King shared her personal connection with the organization during her inspiring remarks. She expressed a sentiment regarding the organization’s impact that deeply resonates with her, “We all have those days when we look in the mirror and without a doubt, say to ourselves ‘I look good.’ When you feel good about yourself, you work differently, you play differently, and you feel more confident. When you feel more confident you do better at your job, and quite often that results in being paid well. All those things have a connection, and while it starts from within, it’s nice to have an outside that you feel good about.”
The look good, feel-good impact is why AGEbeautiful develops high-quality hair color and hair care products at an affordable price point, enabling women to attain professional-level results in the comfort of their homes. This commitment stems from the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to feel self-assured in their appearance, to go out into the world and have the confidence to lead a successful life.
