Popular short hairstyles for over 50 women
When choosing a flattering hairstyle, women over 50 usually look best when the focus is on the top. This means that the hair should not be longer than the length of the chin, as this will highlight downward lines on the face.
If your hair is thinner than it used to be, a short style makes it easier to create texture and volume without long lengths weighing down the hair.
Here are some of the best short styles for over 50 women modeled especially for you by these famous celebrities!
Short bobs for women over 50
Here are three great examples of women over 50 who know how to use the basic bob style to create a flattering and fashionable look.
Meryl Streep looks effortlessly sleek, with a style stacked on the back for a trendy volume on the back. A trendy style with defined lines prevents gray hair from aging and makes it a modern and eye-catching choice for hair color!
Diane Keaton looks great with her casual layered bob. The chin-length bob flatters almost everyone and with tapered tips for texture and layering, this is a casual, pretty, and easy choice for fine hair.
Dame Helen Mirren is definitely a hair icon for women over 50 and this bob style is cut to highlight her beautiful cheekbones. And when the hair is casually pushed behind an ear, this is the perfect place to showcase a pair of stunning earrings.
Shaggy styles for women over 50
These three abbreviations all have trendy textured ends to give a contemporary touch and to emphasize the folded layers.
Jane Fonda has always had flattering hairstyles and this example shows how the height at the top, a piecey edge for softness and extra width at the temples create a very attractive style that emphasizes her eyes.
Meg Ryan's cut is tailored to minimize her heart-shaped face and narrow chin. If you fold up the layers directly above the chin, you get the illusion of a larger width, which minimizes a sharp chin.
Cloris Leachman's modern, spiky look creates a fabulous, shaggy silhouette that focuses on the forehead and draws attention away from her nose.
And the advantage of these multi-layer styles is that you can also wear them smooth and slim!
Pixie cuts for women over 50
Here are three great examples of pixie styles for women over 50. Jamie Lee Curtis has a long face and therefore no extra volume on the top that would lengthen her face.
And to really shorten a long face, you should choose a side parting and have a long, side-swept edge to cover the forehead and end right behind the eyebrows.
Sharon has an oval face shape and so the trendy center parting fits her perfectly and shows her beautifully rounded forehead. Dame Judi has a square jaw and uses the pretty, tousled volume at the top to beautifully balance her face shape.
And here are other shortcuts for mature women over 50, have fun.
So which short style is your favorite!
