As the years go by we have to take some time to update our wardrobe, make-up styles and our hairstyles. But just because you’re of a certain age, this does not mean you have to chop off your hair, dye it blonde to hide grays and give up on styling. The only thing that is important is that you have a hairstyle that flatters you. 50 is just the beginning of another exciting chapter in your life and you want your hair to look it’s best for it. Here are some gorgeous hairstyles for women over 50.
Shoulder-Length Bob with Subtle Layers
This hairstyle is truly age-defying and it never goes out of style. If you still have thick, shiny hair then a long bob with subtle layers is the ultimate 50+ hairstyle. It’s easy to maintain but still gives you an age-appropriate look and shows off your great head of hair. This look goes will with every face shape too.
A Modern Shag
If you want to go shorter because your hair is thinning and you just want the low-maintenance then try a modern shag. The trick is have choppy layers all around your head with the shorter layers in the front framing your face. Flip the ends out for a totally chic look.
Bob with Bangs
An ear-length bob is a great way to show off your facial features. Keep the cut full and blunt to make your hair appear fuller. If you’ve been noticing a little more wrinkles around your forehead or cheeks then add some flattering bangs. Bangs draw attention to your eyes and away from any aging-marks and they are also youthful. Be sure to choose a bang that flatters your face shape. Perhaps a short wispy bang or a long side-swept bang might be better. You and your stylist should be able to choose the best style.
Collar bone-length Curls
If you have naturally curly hair or invest in perms then keep your hair longer. A cut that is slightly longer than your shoulders, parted to a side, and showing off your gorgeous curls isn’t a look that will never go out of style. Add some layers throughout the length of your hair to remove some of the bulk and to keep the styling hassle minimal.
Long Tousled Pixie
The spiked-pixie is a great look for women over 50 but it’s overplayed. Why not try something new and keep your hair down with lots of texture created by choppy layers. This look will keep you looking youthful without worrying about your hair.
