Flattering Hairstyles For Women Over 50

Turning fifty doesn't give you permission to have dull hair. Your unique sense of style is only just beginning to unfold! Turning 50 is an opportunity for a fashion reboot, and a new hairstyle can work wonders. Let's explore some stylish options that can be totally customized to complement your personality, lifestyle, hair type, and skin tone. Embrace what I call classic with a twist, and let your hair be a reflection of the vibrant soul you are.

Short Hairstyles for Women 50+

Short doesn't mean boring! Start with a stunning short haircut to accentuate your eyes and highlight your cheekbones. Try a layered and textured short style or wispy pixie cut. Think of Kris Jenner's iconic face-framing style. This versatile look can be worn in various ways—brushed forward, slicked back, or volumized on top.

Mid-Length Layers for a Youthful Glow

Hairstyles may come and go, but the key is to stay true to your style. At 50+, resist the urge to chase trends. Instead, opt for a classic with a twist, leveraging your hair texture, features, and radiant smile lines. Bob hairstyles can be both chic and age-defying.  I'll help you create a flattering mid-length style to take years off while staying true to your classic signature look. With a bob hairstyle, you can play it straight with a center part or gentle waves, or you can style it away from the face with lots of volume. You can rock your silver strands or you can add gloss color to conceal grey hair and boost radiance.

Add Long Layers and Texture

Who says you can't have long hair after 50?! As long as your hair looks healthy and it flatters you, there are no other rules. Give your hair movement and reduce bulk by adding some texture and layers to longer lengths. Frame your eyes with light fringe or bangs. This flattering combination works wonders for women of all ages. Give it a youthful look with bouncy volume and waves.

Your hair is a powerful expression of your style and personality. By customizing any of these hairstyles, you can find your classic with a twist and embrace your 50s with grace and panache. Age is just a number, and your hair can be the timeless accessory that speaks volumes about the vibrant woman you are.
