The Best Hairstyles for Older Women
As any woman of elegant age knows, finding the right hairstyle can make all the difference. Where some cuts and styles have a tendency to amplify negative features, others can help to lift our looks and crown us with a sense of youthful vitality. Here we will take a look at some of the different hairstyles for mature women and offer care and styling tips to keep your hair looking and feeling great.
Finding the style that makes you feel good
Bangs can have an incredible impact on the way our faces look. Typically, bangs shorten the appearance of our faces, helping to make our features appear bigger and closer together, thereby having a more youthful appearance. They can also help to distract from thinning or receding hairlines. As such, bangs are often cut into a number of different hairstyles for women over 50 and can be styled in whichever way you choose. Women with heart-shaped faces may choose to wear their bangs straight, while blow-drying them to the side is popular in many hairstyles for older women. Should you need any inspiration for this style, look no further than Helen Mirren, whose carefully side-swept, silky tresses are part of her signature look.
The long bob, or simply ‘lob’, is a flattering and gorgeous look for women of any age. Adding fullness to the face, while retaining enough length to style feminine curls or waves, the lob is a great hairstyle for older women who want to be able to try out different styles now and then. Long enough to pull back into a stylish updo yet not so long it weighs down and obscures the focus from your facial features, this variant of the bob has been successfully worn by Hollywood go-getters such as Kim Cattrall and Sharon Stone.
