If the year in lockdown has taught us one thing, it is that we no longer allow traditional beauty ideals to be imposed on us. This is especially true for our hair. Due to a long time with closed hairdressing salons, many women have rediscovered their natural hair structure. As a result, gray hair has become a hairstyle trend, but long, naturally grown hair will also be more popular than ever in 2021. There used to be an age limit. It was basically assumed that long hair looked stale in older women. The lockdown taught us otherwise: women over the age of 50 also have long hair. We present three hairstyle trends for long hair that flatter women aged 50 and over and are guaranteed to make them look younger. Very important information in advance: Long hair needs special care from a certain age, as it dries out faster and becomes brittle.
Long hair can quickly look old-fashioned in women over the age of 50 - this is especially true if the hair is growing wild and is not styled. With the sleek look, you can counteract this effect, because it looks very noble and sophisticated. Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has styled her hair in an accurate middle parting and wears it tucked tightly behind her ears. This gives your face freshness and a youthful appearance. From a certain age, you should use hairspray and gel with an additional care formula and make sure to use heat protection before using the hairdryer or straightening iron.
Andie McDowell has been relying on her natural hair look since the lockdown and even shows herself with gray, curly hair on the red carpet in Cannes. Why does this trend hairstyle look fresh? Andie relies on layered hair that gives her natural curls the necessary elasticity for a youthful look. Warning: curly hair needs a lot of care. In addition to daily hair care, a moisturizing hair mask should be used once a week.
Who better than Jennifer Aniston to prove that long hair with layers has no age limit? As a young actress, she made the haircut as Rachel from the series "Friends" a cult - today the layered hair is even known under the name "The Rachel". Even today, Jennifer Aniston relies on steps. What has changed? The steps are not more as pronounced as in the 90s, but they still flatter your face and give it a beautiful frame. You should pay particular attention to the care of the tips with stepped haircuts because they are particularly vulnerable. Hair oils work particularly well here against split ends.
