When looking for a hairstyle for women over 50, the long hairstyles somehow do not seem as appropriate as when you were younger. Many ladies over 50 find that the short to medium length look is their best bet. Some of the hairstyles that look great on women over 50 are chin length hair that is straight but can have a little body or curls added, short naturally curly hair, a classy yet sleek ponytail pulled back low on the neck and a short cut just above the shoulders.
These cuts can be worn in various ways and depending on what type of hair you have, whether it is curly or straight, can be worn that to suit your face shape. If you want a style that is not too long and not too short, the hairstyle that is perfect is that of the one Glenn Close wears. It has bangs that cover the forehead with the bottom ends flipped up and out. The hair is parted off to one side at the top of her head and is a simple yet modern hairstyle.
Another great over 50’s hairstyle is the classic ponytail. It’s not just for a weekend look anymore, but a classy and sophisticated look if you still work in the office. The hair can either be parted down the middle, parted at the side or even swept back evenly from the front to back and held with a stylish and embellished ponytail holder. The low ponytail gives the more professional look and if desirable can have a few wisps or tendrils that fall around the face.
If you have curly hair, you can use your natural curls to your advantage and part your hair down the middle and then take the very back part and brush it back to where you have a half part down the front part of your hair. Soft loose curls fall to each side of your head and can be accentuated by using a curling spray product to add shine and hold the curls. The best curly hairstyle for women over 50 is the one that is just above the shoulders.
