Trendy Haircuts for Women Over the Age of 50 in 2021

It’s no secret that women keep looking for the perfect hairstyle that makes them appear more youthful, emphasizes their beauty, and suits their face shape throughout life. But the more years a lady has under her belt, the more challenging it gets to find that ideal hair solution.

Firstly, the article Hair Care After 50+ implies more attention to the hair. Secondly, natural hair color and texture change as we age and we have to deal with that too.

However, no matter how old a woman is, a hairstyle is the key detail of their image and it’s essential to update it every couple of years at a minimum.

Just look at Madonna, Kris Jenner, or Kim Basinger – these beauty icons over 50 prove that every woman can look stunning at any age.

So, if giving a graceful change to your hairstyle is on the list of your New Year’s Resolutions in 2021, check the best haircuts in the gallery below to give you a few great ideas. 

Chick Rounded Bob

When it comes to hair in your 50’s, the irony is that by this time you’ve finally managed to master your mane, it suddenly begins to change on you. The hair keeps going through its stages and losing its pigment, eventually becoming gray, coarse, and wiry. Moreover, hair over 50 has a tendency to thin out as well. 

All these inevitable hair issues shouldn’t frighten you or get you into a panic. The hair coloring will help you to revitalize depth, visually add thickness and shine to your locks. A short layered style will give some volume and shape to the hairstyle, taking years off your face.

This elegantly rounded bob is the brightest example of classics that never fade. The strong lines accent the cheekbone structure, while a soft touch of asymmetry brings the traditional hairstyle closer to today’s fashion trends.

Messy Medium Layered Haircut

When women step over a certain age, society often tries to set some limits on their hairstyle. But, what’s the point of meeting other people’s expectations? Feel free to choose any length, color, and style you like. Even if it’s a careless messy shoulder-length cut with a playful twist like in this picture.

Another cool thing about this medium hairstyle is the natural white-grey hair color. Thus, in the right combination of shape, length, and texture, even your aging ash hair will look youthful, decent, and not outdated.

Pick the styles that will present you in the best light and admire everyone around you.

Pixie Bob

The pixie bob is one of the most popular and expected short hairstyles in the age of 50 and older. And, there are lots of ways to make even this style unique and personalized.

For example, feathered layers will look flirty and alluring on short white hair, especially if you add some height to the crown.

Ask your stylist for longer layers in the front that get shorter and shorter towards the back, also, add some lengthy side-swept bangs. 

Since the hairstyle is rather short, it’s super easy to style on a daily basis: just blow dry it with a round brush, adding volume on top and you’re good to go.

Asymmetrical Lob

The ladies looking for a trendy, youthful yet convenient cut can opt for an asymmetrical inverted lob. The angle of this hairstyle allows you to look modern yet casual. It’s not “too much” and not “old-fashioned” at the same time. What’s more, this beautiful cut is incredibly versatile.

Moreover, it allows you to experiment with straighteners and curlers, changing your image according to your mood. With curls and waves like in the photo, the cut looks playful and definitely makes one look younger.

Short Straight Bob Hairstyle with Bangs

Such a straight tapered bob will work great for women with thick hair they’re tired of. It won’t get into your face, won’t bother or distract you: a perfect solution for an active woman.

However, be careful with the fringe, especially the straight one. It doesn’t suit all face shapes (especially round,) so first check if your hairstylist approves the cut you’ve decided to try on.

Medium-Length Layered Cut

If you pay attention to the way these layers fall, you may think it’s hard to get this style at home, but actually, it isn’t. The secret is the right cut (so, just show your stylist this pic) and using a round brush to flick the ends from your face when drying it. Some hairspray or a texturizer will increase the effect.

Another piece of advice: to make your style take your image to the next level of sophistication, choose the hair color that 100% suits you.

Short Tucked Layered Bob with Highlights

The classic bob style will look fresh and juicy if you add blonde highlights to it. This accent will also add deepness, thickness, and texture to your thin aging hair.

And if you slightly curl your locks for a special occasion, that movement will be just fantastic.

Charming Boyish Cut

A sleek crop is elegant, chic, and versatile. It is another classic choice for middle-aged women searching for a change. This “wake up and go style” will be ideal for women suffering from hair loss and those who wanna look great every day.

And for a polished look, you’ll need as little as to wash your hair, blow-dry it, and use a bit of styling gel or mousse to enhance the texture and define the ends. Also, remember to visit your hairdresser on time to keep the nape and sides clean.

Hot Long Hairstyles

Choose the Hairstyle You Want

And, finally… who said women over 50 can wear short and medium hair only? If your mane allows to, experiment with these head-turning and heart-breaking long hairstyles.

However, bear in mind that long hair requires more intense care. Just like you protect your aging akin or even protect your brain and thinking power as you age, you should treat your precious hair as it is the base of your whole look.

You are beautiful!
