These hairstyles are glossy. They’re flattering. They’re cool. The best haircuts to get in your 50s happen to be short, medium-length, and long cuts you’d want at any age (with a few strategic tweaks here and there). We promise, there’s not a single matronly style in the bunch.
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.
