Over 50 Hairstyles

There was a time, when over 50 hairstyles were short, generally permed and typically boring. Thankfully those days are long behind us. 

These days, women over fifty have the same hairstyle selections to choose from as younger women do. In fact, the mature woman, only has to take into consideration the same elements that any woman does when selecting a hairstyle. 

All Over Layers For Over 50

Choosing Your Cut And Color

You want a cut and color that compliment your face shape, that shows off your personality and that works with your hair type and texture. 

Beyond that, when looking for an over 50 hairstyle, you really only need to find what will suit your lifestyle and styling needs.

Choosing Your Length

Hairstyles for women over 50 can be anything length that you like as well. Granted, you want a cut that will flatter you, and if that means you can sport long locks, than feel free to do so. 

The best advice as always is to speak with a professional stylist when choosing an over 50 hairstyle. Let them know what you are seeking and they can offer advice on working with your own face shape and features.

Regardless of your age cuts with layers are very becoming as they can be styled to hide numerous flaws. Your cut should be able to maximize the features you want to draw attention to while masking those you would rather downplay. 

Age is just a number, do not let it determine what type of hairstyle that you choose.  Rather, when seeking a hairstyle for women over 50, pick something you love and modify the cut to suit you, not yourself to suit a cut. 

Versatility is also an important factor when picking an over 50 haircut. The modern woman is just as busy in her 50's as are younger ladies. Select a look that is easily modified for any and all situations that you may find yourself in.
