Some women embrace their new look when they hit their 50s, but some may struggle with letting go of the way things used to be. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about that anymore! These five super-flattering hairstyles are sure to make you feel confident and beautiful in your new skin!
Short Hair with Bangs
To work with medium to long hair, style your hair in a shag or asymmetrical bob with side-swept bangs. This is a flattering style as the swoop of your bangs brings the focus up to your eyes and away from any lines on your face. Sweep them to one side of your face if you want to highlight a more angular face shape and keep them parted on the other side for those who have softer features.
When it comes to hairstyle, long layers are a guaranteed winner. This look will be your go-to cut and is flattering on most people, she explains. It works well with straight or curly hair and you can change the look by sweeping the hair across your face or off to the side. For added volume at the top of your head, curl hair with a wand while blow drying. Style: Use large barreled curling irons (1 inch) and curl away from your face in large sections.
Another option, or a variation on a bob, is wavy bobs. You can get natural waves by spritzing your hair with water and curling it while damp. Once it’s completely dry you’ll want to straighten it out just a bit to maintain the integrity of the wave. To add dimension and extra curl without the need for teasing or hairspray, Katin recommends using two-inch pin curls on one side of your head while letting the rest of your hair air dry.
If you’re looking to grow out your natural gray or thinning hair, voluminous coils will frame your face beautifully and naturally. The hair is braided into spirals and the ends are tucked in, giving the appearance of a ballerina bun. This hairstyle is perfect for both young and older women.
As we age, the consistency and fullness of our hair starts to disappear, which means we need to change up our hairstyle. It may sound strange, but one way to boost your confidence as you grow older is to opt for a softer haircut that emphasizes your best features. One such style is a simple blunt cut with layers.
