These 40 Youthful Hairstyles Are Perfect For Older Women

Have you had the same old tired hairstyle for years now? Want to switch up your look but don’t know what cut to go for? Well, you’re in luck: these fabulous ’dos are all perfectly suited to older women. They’re chic, modern — and, best of all, they may just take a few years off you!

1. Billowy bob

This voluminous bob looks great on just about anyone. Take your cue from Diahann Carroll and invest in some curling irons to really get those ends looking perfect. You’ll be super glad you did!

2. Sleek, long locks

Who says you can’t have long hair in your 50s? Sleek and straight is the way to go, and you can achieve the look with the help of heated styling tools. Just be sure to keep your hair at its best with a moisturizing serum so that it remains just as impeccably shiny as Demi Moore’s.

3. Deep side-part

A cut with a deep side part is easy to style. Even better, it’s flattering on round, heart, oval and square-shaped faces — which means pretty much all of us!

4. Short beachy waves

When you think of beachy waves, you probably envision extra-long, effortlessly tousled hair. But Meg Ryan proves shorter hair that’s loosely curled can also rock. Add a few face-framing pieces to really complete the look.
