Think Layered Hairstyles for Ageless Beauty

Over 50 doesn’t mean suburban hair – as many of these ladies know. Sexy, flirty styles are what beautiful women wear with confidence. To make the most of your look, think layered hairstyles for ageless beauty.

Textured Twisted Long Bob

Kate Capshaw may wear a Peter Pan collar, but she looks as far away from boyish with the sexy layers cut with a textured technique called slithering.

This process of sliding the points of sheers through the layers allows for less bulk and softens the usual rigid edge of a bob.

“Unstructured” Structure Cut

Diane Keaton

Yes, Diane Keaton has always been known for wearing her mid-length bob that looks fab with or without a hat, but she has adapted the cut for aging by point cutting layers into the shape.

This technique gives height as well as a messy flick that really says sexy can happen at every age. And, nice color Diane – letting the gray become one of the highlights.

Flippy Fabulosa Cut

Jane Fonda

Jane Fonda will not turn 80 without sex appeal. When she shed her long hair for this flippy gamine-like style she got more notice than she had in years. Every vertical layer is slithered, leaving a lightness that flips out so easily!  She makes aging beautifully look effortless.

Shaggy Shapely Cut

Notice how soft the line is of this cut. A shag always takes the eye away from our neck and wrinkles, giving a youthful finish to the cut. Bravo Linda Gray, who lightened her color to make the gray look less severe and shagged the hair with a slide cut to soften the demons of time.

Glam Hipster Cut

Diane Sawyer

Always on my A-list is Diane Sawyer. She knows ultra short is too severe while long is just too dragging, so this whimsical soft layer cut is just the touch for the glam, hip life she leads.

Crop and Texture

Kris Jenner knows that when we age, the crop has to have a softness that wasn’t needed when she was younger. Notice that the hair covers the tops of her ears, while behind the ear a frame of softness deflects our eye from focusing on the chin.

Wedgy-layered Firefly

Katie Couric

Katie Couric with her cherub face has always looked best in short hair. Fringed layers incorporate interior movement into a wedge-like cut that would normally be heavy and “pulling” on the face shape. Professional, yes, and sexy!

Bobby-feathered Graduation

I love this cut! Graduation shouldn’t be only in the back, it must progress from the bang to the nape, resulting in a feathery soft finish on a cut that might otherwise be harsh.

Rotary-layered Curls

Jennifer Gray wears rotary graduation with such glamour! She lets us all know that no matter what her critics say, she accepts and wears her hair’s natural texture with Haute Couture!

Choppy Cross Cut

Martha Stewart relieved the heaviness of her hair with this choppy cross cut, moving through the hair both horizontally and vertically, point cutting every layered edge in both directions.

Edgy Razored Layer Cut

Suzanne Somers

Suzanne Somers never looked better! Her always heavy hair has an edgy razored cut that gives movement and messiness that heightens a gal’s sex appeal.

Get your layers moving girls!

It’s simple. Layered hairstyles soften your look – so make sure texture is a part of your cut.

Use light styling products to lift and separate, showing off the light edge of the cut.
