Modern Hairstyles For Women Over 50

Now is a great time to update your hair and look. The beginning of a new year is a time for change and transformation. If you’re looking for a modern and stylish look in 2020 try one of these best hairstyles for women over 50.

What’s the appropriate length of hair for women over 50?

Don’t you let anyone dictate to you. If you love long hair then wear it long! I do honestly believe that some women look even younger with length on their locks. There is however one golden rule. The hair should be nourished and healthy otherwise it is very unbecoming. As we enter perimenopause and menopause, it appears a few things every few years is taken from us, starting often with our skin and hair texture. Extra care and attention are needed to keep our locks soft, lustrous and touchable.

Bob or Lob

Decide on a length that suits you. If you are torn between long hair and a short cut, go somewhere in between. Try a one-length classic bob for a timeless look or lob (long bob) for more versatility. The one length is extremely classy as the cut is accentuated and hair can be easily tied away in a low tail which can look relaxed or extremely elegant with relatively no fuss.

A one-length cut is also ideal for naturally curly and wavy hair. Especially if the hair is fine textured, as it adds weight to the hair and delivers a wonderful wave opposed to curl.

Ein vor drei Tagen gewaschener Locken bzw Wellenkopf in den diversen Grau Schattierungen…. Pflegeleicht, wie ich meine Frisuren schon immer geliebt habe – waschen & Lufttrocknen ( erst im Turban, dann pinne ich die Locken fest) einmal kräftig schütteln – fertig 🙏😊✌ Ich hasse es, meine Haare föhnen zu müssen, das jahrelange Färben war mir ein absolutes Gräuel – es ist mit der Mähne, wie bei so vielem: Die einfachsten, schlichtesten Dinge, oder auch Wege, erweisen sich oft als die besten. So zumindest bei mir 😊 So halte ich es auch mit Make up – mehr als 5 – 10 Minuten darf es nicht dauern 😉 • • My grey curlyhead in different shades of grey – washed three days ago… Easy to handle – just how I always liked my hair styles to be – washing & air drying (first in a turban then I pin my curls down) Shake them once and I'm good to go. 🙏✌😊 I hate to blow dry my hair. After years of torturous dyeing I love it simple and easy And as with many things in life the simple way is often the best. At least in my case. The same with my Make up – it takes me not more than 5 – 10 minutes. • • #curlsagain #curlexplosion #greyandcurly #greycurlsrock #greyhairmovement #messyhairdontcare #greyisnotold #bestager #over50style #silversisters #silverhair #beyourself #grauehaare #instagrey #artinaging #greyheadbonn #greyhead #germancurlysunite #healthynaturalhair #silverhairdontcare #naturalaging #goinggreygracefully #ditchthedye

Short Layered

Jane Fonda and Lisa Rinna do this short layered cut beautifully, so much so it has become their staple look. What makes the style so fresh is the removal of styling products. There is no stiffness from hair spray, soft luscious free hair is the key.

Short Crop

A very short crop is a liberating haircut to embrace. It is easy to maintain on a daily basis but does require 6 weekly salon visits to refresh the shape.

Hair Color

It’s always a decision. Should you keep the silver hair that is appearing or colour it away? Blondes get it easy as white blends so beautifully with blonde hair. The transition can be made with hardly anyone noticing. For everyone else, best to always seek professional advice. Do not attempt this task on your own.
