Oh, well, without exaggeration, the right haircut takes 5-10 years off your looks. The problem of many older women is sticking to one hairstyle for decades or choosing the styles which make them seem too severe. Updating your hairstyle at least in little ways every few years is a must for a woman of any age. Not only hair tendencies change, you change as well. New hair hue, new shapes of haircuts, new finishes for the ends can work wonders. The good news is there’s nothing new under the Sun, and your favorite pixies and bobs are still popular but they have acquired new quirks. We have 30 beautiful versions of your favorite haircuts here. Fancy having a look?
Updated Haircuts for Women over 50
Today your haircut should feature some lift around your face and give a feel of movement. These are easily achieved with layers and/or trimmed/choppy edges. Avoid heavy blunt cut contours and accurate geometrical lines and shapes in haircuts. You risk looking too severe and older than you are with them. Don’t tolerate overprocessed ends or excessive usage of hair spray. Both add years and should be shied away.
Chances are high that apart from a new haircut, you need also to reconsider your hair color. With age most women tend to choose lighter hues, which is quite understandable: they make you look younger and are better in masking grey hairs. But, on the other hand, if your base is too light for your skin tone, you look sadly washed out. You may need to go darker with your base and add caramel or golden highlights around your face. Highlights always refresh your skin and look stylish.
