Forever Young: 6 Beautiful and Trendy Hairstyles for Women Over 50
October 28, 20192 min read
Looking for hairstyles for over 50 ladies? It’s really all about the right cut. Finding something that fits with your unique hair texture, face shape, and personal aesthetic is key. Be sure to bring in inspo photos to your stylist to give them a visual. These are some of the popular and youthful hairstyles for women over 50 and beyond.
Choppy Lob with Side Swept Bangs
Think Susan Sarandon on many a red carpet. The lob is universally flattering, and if your hair is the right texture for them, a side-swept fringe can add a youthful element. YouTube mainstay Dominique Sachse created a helpful tutorial for blowing out side-swept bangshere. Cut down on drying time and protect strands over time (with far infrared heat technology) by using ourBold Hair Dryer, which is safe and effective for all hair types.
Bob with Bangs
VOGUE queen Anna Wintour is perhaps the most notorious over 50 style maven for the banged bob. Actress Helen Mirren has donned the look too but with a little more texture than Wintour’s pin-straight version. If you want to go sleek all around with this popular and youthful hairstyle like AW, ourMegastar Hair Straightener works well with all lengths and types. Bust out some serum for added shine and minimal frizz.
Classic Bob (Blunt or Layered)
A classic bob with blunt ends or just a few soft, subtle layers is always a winning youthful hairstyle for women over 50. The cut is particularly ideal for someone withthinning or fine hair. While it might require some additional heat styling—since shorter hair might not always air-dry to perfection—you can extend the life of your blowout and prevent dryness by applying an aerosol dry shampoo.
Feathered Pixie Cut
Calling all Kris Jenner fans; this one’s for you. The momager has been rocking a short pixie style for years. Talk show staple Ellen Degeneres has also mastered the art of the close-cropped, spikey pixie. We think the pixie looks particularly cool on silver-haired dames.
Long Layers with a Deep Side Part
Long live long hair, regardless of your age. Hollywood style icons Diane Lane and Jennifer Aniston both embody the glory of beautiful long tresses at any age. Tame a long mane with salon-quality blowouts using a professional-grade dryer (like any of theNuMe dryers) and a round bristle brush.
