Women often tend to change their hairstyle and hair length as they get older. This can be due to changing hair type (e.g. graying hair, thinning hair, and hair loss) or simply because as women age, they often feel more confident and youthful and are willing to shed their long locks in favor of a low-maintenance hairstyle. Here we have compiled some stylish short hairstyles for women over 50 that are sure to look good on you. No matter what face or hair type you have, each of these modern looks is age-appropriate while still remaining playful and youthful.
If you are looking for short hairstyles for women over 50, you often come across the pixie haircut with the undercut. But then you think you're too old for an undercut. That is absolutely not true. On the contrary, this is even a great hairstyle for older women with fine hair. You can keep the undercut minimal at first and later increase the area it covers if you wish. This edgy haircut is easy to style using the right styling tools to get those luscious fringes on top of the head.
Many women who want easy-care short hairstyles for fine hair often opt for a pixie cut. This is because the layers can be kept long enough to only slightly accentuate facial features. Don't be afraid to stand out with this hairstyle! A long pixie haircut can be made interesting with subtle colors like the rose blush. Ask your stylist to add lots of layers so you can backcomb the top layers to add some volume to your fine hair.
This hairstyle is for you if you want to look sophisticated at a fancy event. Even if it takes some time and effort to create them, it pays off with a lot of compliments that you will definitely collect.
When it comes to fine hair, it's all about volume. When you're struggling with thin, lifeless locks, there's nothing quite like a wild pixie like this one. Cutting your hair in layers and applying some texturizer will add volume to the whole look. Even though spikes are considered rather punky, you can make them sleek and feminine by running your fingers through the hairstyle.
Finer hair always looks thicker when it's cut short. This classic look, with its darker blonde color and a simple back comb, will add volume to your short tresses. Also, this elegant hairstyle is timeless and has an air of carelessness that is so popular these days.
This trendy haircut with layers around the parting creates lots of volumes. The side-swept bangs ensure a playful and fresh look as well as a bold style.
If you want to add some length to your wavy hair, this short pixie undercut is a great way to add some volume to your locks! Request an undercut at the back and style your wavy hair to one side for maximum body and texture. Why not also go for a pretty buttery blonde and auburn balayage to take this trendy look to the next level?
This is a great example of medium-length hairstyles for women over 50. The hair length is slightly longer than a short pixie cut and almost the length of a bob haircut. Opt for lighter colors like the platinum blonde of the model in the picture because such colors can make you look younger. Also, make sure you style your short bob neatly as messy styling will make you look unkempt. In general, this hairstyle is best suited for women with medium hair as fine hair can look flat in this hairstyle.
