The most beautiful haircuts and hairstyles for long hair over 50.
I admit I am a victim of the convention. Despite my infinite love for long hair - which I've proudly worn in the Cher look for years - I recently said goodbye to my XXL mane. The reason? "You are not a little girl anymore," I said to myself.
And although I now spend pleasant days with my new bob (especially when it comes to drying my 40-centimeter mane) or thinking that this idea, spontaneous as it may have been, has no tangible evidence to support it has been. Because who said that from a certain age you have to do without a haircut that is more than shoulder length? This may be true for some people. Sharon Stone, for example, looks great the way she is with shorter hair. But, as always, the rules don't apply to everyone, and there are great exceptions.
Because when I think of some stars, but I might as well name some of my mother's wonderful friends, I can think of a lot of women who not only age gracefully, but also do so with meter-long hair.
Take Jennifer Aniston, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Nicole Kidman, for example, they were all born more than half a century ago and are great examples and inspirations of what haircuts look great for long hair over the age of 50. Don't you believe us? Take a look at the gallery below.
Of course, there was the (much copied) "Bowl Cut" from "Ghost" and the shaved hair from "Private Jane", but Demi remains the queen of the XL mane. She usually wears them super sleek, but they also look good wavy.
A long bob slightly lightened towards the tips that dictated the trend in 2019.
The color alone is great. Perfect in combination with a long bob with stepped lengths and a deep side parting.
We just saw her on "The Undoing" with gorgeous red, wavy hair, but the variant of wearing the long hair strict and super straight is still a winner.
A cut that plays with different lengths is particularly versatile. This ensures volume at the base and lightness at the tips.
We find them gorgeous, especially with curls. Super-nifty here (after all, she was at the 2018 Oscars) with hair combed back at the base and open from the middle.
Interesting for those who have a low forehead like her is opting for a parting without a base with a lot of volume at the base to create height.
Here, in addition to the gentle waves that concentrate in the middle of the lengths, highlights that make the facial features appear softer make the difference.
A cut that frames the face and suits all age groups. It is special because of the single (maxi) wave at medium height.
Always true to long hair, she has recently opted for a mix of straight 70s hair and 80s curls.
A softly falling mane (without defined waves), which together with the perfect color for her complexion gives her grace and radiance.
Unforgettable long curly hair, which was also an inspiration for her daughter Tracee and her hair care line.
Her "Rachel" haircut made history in the 90s. That's why Jen remains a point of reference for all those who like her, like to keep their hair very straight and long.
She always looks beautiful. But this long, wavy cut is enhanced by caramel-colored highlights.
A hairstyle and a cut that will never go out of style. Perfect for a coffee with friends or for the red carpet.
Soft waves, a bit of Old Hollywood, with highlights along the entire length. The middle parting creates a pony effect (without pony).
Yes, they are probably extensions. But why not give it a try before you decide to let your hair grow out?
A short pony is really surprising and fresh. Please note: your hair should be straight but with volume.
