New, exciting hairstyle trends are constantly emerging. According to experts, four of them should particularly flatter women over 50.
Chic hairstyles have the ability to give the wearer more confidence and bring out their natural assets. Of course, what you like depends on your individual taste. However, if you are unsure or simply fancy something new, you can follow the advice of hairdressers and choose one of these four hairstyles. They are very trendy and flatter women over 50 particularly well:
Bob is always a good hairstyle choice no matter what age you are. However, this cut is perfect for women over 50 in particular because, according to star hairstylist Gina Rivera, it frames the face and softens the facial features. The one-length version of the bob, where all the hair is cut to one length, also makes thin hair look visually fuller.
The mix of mullet and pixie is bang on trend and a favorite cut of stars like Miley Cyrus and Sharon Stone. It has a fringy cut and extends slightly longer at the back of the neck than a normal pixie cut would. Particularly practical: it can and should be worn wildly and is therefore particularly uncomplicated in terms of styling. Hairstylist Valerie Maine explains that pixie cuts generally use the natural structure of the hair. Simply let it air dry, if necessary shape it with some styling cream and create volume and you're done!
The lob, a long bob, is also a great hairstyle choice for women over 50 who prefer to stick with a longer haircut. Rivera says it makes hair look thicker, especially in the blunt version, which means the ends are cut bluntly. The blunt lob works for both straight and curly hair, adds Jonathan Soons, Creative Ambassador at Headmasters. It flatters every face shape, looks relaxed and fresh, and is, therefore, one of the top haircuts of this year.
The shag was the hairstyle of the '70s - and it's been making a comeback for a while. It can be worn rocking, but also appear romantic and playful. This versatility earns it a permanent place in the modern age. The layers play wonderfully around the face, cleverly distract from wrinkles and thus ensure a fresh kick. Texture and volume are included for free. Dare, you won't regret it because "this cut just never goes out of style," agrees celebrity hairstylist Carly Bethel.
