From a certain age, beauty magazines and hairdressers start telling you that you should cut your hair long and adopt a shorter hairstyle. In your 40s, you are expected to ditch your long curls, lifted up hairstyles, and hair that grazes the chest in favor of shorter cuts. While many women love their chic looks, that doesn't mean others should feel pressured to adopt the same style.
Sometimes women cut their hair out of necessity. When menopause arrives and hormones change hair texture changes. The hair does get shorter, but above all, because it is thinner and drier, which means that with a shortcut, it becomes easier to maintain. In addition, with these kinds of cuts, the hair looks healthier and the hair fuller. But short haircuts aren't to everyone's taste. You shouldn't have your hair cut according to your age and what others want, but according to your desires. So if you want to wear hair that reaches all the way down to your butt at 55, you have the right!
If you like to have long hair but feel like this cut is frowned upon by those around you, you've come to the right place. There are many women over 40 who refused to have their hair cut and kept their hair long. Whether it's gray braided hair, natural dreadlocked hair, or loose hair, you'll find plenty of inspiration in our album.
Here Is The Proof That Long Hair Can Even Be Worn At 40!
Loose and messy hair
Wear your long hair loose, but give the hair some structure with wax or pomade. By gently running your fingers through your loose waxed hair, you make the 'out of bed' style look intentional.
Braided with flat mats
If you have had enough of the usual French or Dutch braid, try braiding your locks into chic flat plaits, which you still braid between them.
Tied up, untied down
For a groomed look that doesn't leave your hair on your face, you can't go wrong with this hairstyle that holds back your locks that usually fall on your face.
Long curly hair
You can never go wrong with curls, especially if your hair is long. Style your hair with a curling iron to achieve pretty wide curls.
Curtain length and fringe
If you want locks that frame the face but don't want to engage in bangs, then this curtain bangs is a great alternative. It falls to your forehead, but it's light enough to be pushed back and away when you don't want it.
Give your long hair a polished look by straightening it with a straightener and shining it with a shine-boosting treatment.
If you feel like your long hair is falling heavily over your shoulders, put on extensions to add body and movement. Your hair will be easier to style as it will naturally frame your face and add a bit more texture and volume to your look.
If you have natural hair, try styling your long braids into dreadlocks. You can then style your hair like this look where the top strands are tied together.
Play with the braids
You can't go wrong with the endless braids. Leave your hair loose and create small braids along the lengths. This will not only allow you not to have the hair on your face but also to have a stylish and fun hairstyle for the day.
If you have straight hair, you can add some spring to your hairstyle by lightly curling your ends. They will fall delicately on your shoulders and give body to your look.
Long hair with thin bangs
Dress up your long hair with thin, straight bangs. It's a look that's very trendy.
The line in the middle
Sometimes the simpler the better. Parting in the middle and let your hair fall freely down your back.
Perfect your curls
Long hair can be heavy, especially if it is curly. Invest in shampoos and styling products that specifically enhance curls to make sure they are well maintained.
Since you have hair long enough to play around with lifted hairstyles, try the sleek, easy-to-achieve updo.
You can never go wrong when you copy the Dear icon. Mimic her '60s hairstyle and go for a look with ultra-straight hair and a center parting.
Long loose braids
If you have the right hair, have fun with hairstyles that make you look younger! Go back to your hippie days and braid your hair into loose braids. Don't forget to pull out a few strands around your face to make it look more grown-up.
Hair accessories are your friends, especially thick headbands. Wear one flush with your forehead and tangle your hair over it. You will get a playful look, inspired by the 80s while remaining modern.
A simple parting on the side
If you don't like the way your hair goes with a parting in the middle, try a small parting on the side which will help you change the way you look at things.
Beach return effect
Give your hair a beach throwback effect by using sea salt spray in your hair and scrunching it up. This will give you wavy curls.
The bangs back
If you want a little more volume on the top of your head, pull your bangs back and secure them on top of your scalp.
A low ponytail and a hat
If you want to complete your outfit with a stylish beret or hat, make a low ponytail with your long hair.
Loops thrown on one side
To give maximum volume, gather your curls and put them on one side of your head. The result is a very flirtatious and playful look.
A natural length
If you like long hair, let it naturally flutter in the wind. To give them a little more volume, you can curl them slightly.
Loose and loose hair
Give your long hair a silky, groomed look with a blow-dry and salon treatment. Hair becomes more brittle with age, so straighten it with a round brush and a hairdryer as this will improve the appearance of your hairstyle.
A shoulder braid
Having long hair means that you can experiment with a plethora of different hairstyles. One of the easiest to master is the braid, and you can braid it using different techniques, creating different looks.
Give body to your hair by waving it. This is easily done using a straightener. Wrap one-inch strands of hair around the straightener, then pull down as if you were curling a ribbon.
Braids won't look childish if you make them a little loose on either side of your face, with a few strands sticking out, all topped off with a hat.
Take a round brush and blow dry your hair backwards to create a windswept look. Drying your hair back will also give you more natural volume. It's a great idea for thinning hair.
The parting on the side
If your hair is thin and flat, you can part it on the side to add volume easily. This hairstyle, paired with wavy lengths, will be a hit.
