What are the Best Short Hairstyles for Women Over 50?

haircut for women

Hitting the big five-oh is something to celebrate, and what better way to do so than with an uber-chic short hairstyle that’s fresh, funky, and oh-so-stylish? Long gone are the days when 50 equaled frumpy—today’s 50-years-young woman can rock the trendiest of hairstyles with glorious ease.

Styles such as…

Sexy, messy layers: Effortless and timeless, this classic yet up-to-date hairstyle can be polished for daywear and shaken up a little for night-time glamor. Work it with a side parting for a polished appearance.

The short bob: Great for the sophisticated woman who wants a versatile style to suit their lifestyle. Play with parting location (side or mid) to add volume, or jazz it up with straightening irons or curling tongs for two completely different looks. Works beautifully for those with straight, fine hair.

Get spiky: Leaving a little length in this layered look allows for spiky freshness when the situation warrants or the ability to lay it flat for a smoother, more refined look.

Short and soft: Keeping your bangs soft with a short style adds a real freshness and dimension. Frame them into the face to draw attention to your features.

Shaggy and beautiful: The shag is a wonderful “do” for those with thick, slightly wavy hair. Team with highlights or balayage to further up the ante…

The pixie: Cute and short, the pixie comes in many different formats.Pixie haircut

  • The wavy: if your hair is curly or wavy by nature then this short style is wonderfully textured and accentuates the shape of your face.
  • The edgy: Team with choppy bangs for the epitome of midlife chic.
  • The classic: Frames your face and highlights your natural features. Add into the mix a minimum maintenance look and what’s not to love?
  • The one with long bangs: A funky alternative take with sexy long bangs sweeping sideways across the face for a truly sultry and stylish look.
  • The long: Well, not that long—it is a pixie after all. But keeping the layers a little longer is the ideal way to add volume if your hair’s on the fine side. Team with some highlights for an even greater thickening boost.
  • The textured: Pump up the pixie with some pomade to add texture.

Funky, short hairstyles offer so many advantages, including less styling time, and—if you’ve always worn your hair long—an amazing feeling of liberation when you go for the chop. Of course, you don’t need to be too dramatic. The option of soft, shoulder-length styles is timeless and works for all hair types, or a long bob (or lob) is great middle ground.
