Hairstyles For Women Over 50

Just because you are a Woman of a Certain Age does not mean you have to go out and get a short, spiky haircut, or a perm once a week ala Steel Magnolias. It doesn’t mean you have to dye your hair blonde or put your eyeglasses on a chain.

Quite the contrary. These days there are no rules to hairstyles for women over age 50. You can wear your hair long, straightened, curled or in an updo — and as long as it’s flattering on you, that’s really all that matters.

In this hairstyle gallery, I’ve pulled together hairstyles on women over 50 that are absolutely gorgeous. Not all haircuts work on all hair textures or with all face shapes. You’ll learn what looks get on whom and by the end of this gallery you should have an idea of what would work with your hair texture and face shape.

This long bob on fashion designer Carla Zampatti is perhaps my favorite of all the hairstyles in this gallery because it defies age. Zampatti’s hair is thick, has a beautiful sheen and color and is a very flattering on her face shape.
