Are you a 50-year-old woman looking for hairstyle advice? First and foremost, age is only a number, and it is always best to stay true to yourself, especially when it comes to your hairstyle. There is not a specific box that you must fit into just because of your age. There are many hairstyles that help create a fresh, younger look for the 50+ women. 

No matter what age you are, you should not lose your sense of style. There are many chic and fun looks to help you boost your confidence and help you stay in style. If you are looking for a bit of inspiration, we have provided a list of the top ten best hairstyles for women over 50. There are various lengths that are beautiful for women over 50, which is a positive because it gives you more choices.

#1 Layered Bob

A layered bob is a classic look that suits almost everyone. The bob haircut can be cut short or medium length, making it a versatile look. It can be cut with long, short, or choppy layers, creating a lot of volume. A bob also looks great with or without bangs, so definitely consider a curtain bang or a side- swept bang to complete the style. 

This is a low-maintenance hairstyle that is perfect for women on the go. It is one of the easiest wash-and- wear haircuts for women over 50. By not having to dry and style your hair, you save yourself a lot of time for other things.

#2 Shoulder Length-Waves

Another timeless look is the shoulder-length waves. This is a soft and subtle look that is perfect for every day or any special occasion. Medium-length hair is perfect for creating beautiful, beachy waves. The waves can vary in size and are super easy to create by using a hairdryer, curling iron, braids, or a flat iron. 

#3 Long Layers

Long layers are gorgeous on many women. It is another hairstyle that will never grow old or tired. It is a great option for women over 50 who would still like long hair. By cutting flowing layers into the long hair, you can create volume and texture, therefore giving off a fresh and youthful vibe. 

#4 Natural Curls

For women with wavy, curly, or coily hair leaving the hair natural is a beautiful choice. By embracing yourself, you can create an effortless, natural beauty. This is also a low maintenance style that is perfect for women on the go. 

There are many different textures of natural hair, so it is best to identify what type you have to use the correct products for your hair. 

#5 Layered Crop

If you are looking for short hairstyles for women over 50, the layered crop is probably one of the most popular. By layering a cropped haircut, you can add lots of shape and fullness, especially if you have fine hair. A layered bob can also help to reduce volume if you have thick hair. The layers will help to distribute some of the bulkiness that is associated with thick hair. 

#6 Blunt Bob

Another popular bob haircut is the blunt bob. This is simply a haircut without layers. This is a great look for women who have sleek, straight, or fine hair. It is typically a very feminine and sophisticated look. It is a timeless hairstyle that will never go out of style. 

#7 Sleek and Straight

Another long hairstyle that is gorgeous on women over 50 is a sleek and straight look. This style is perfect for women with straight hair or if not, it can be simply achieved with a flat iron. This is a classic and smooth look that is usually parted down the middle. It is also another very easy look to maintain. 

#8 Voluminous Curls

There is nothing more sexy than large, voluminous curls, and every woman of all ages would like to feel sexy now and again. This look does require a little more work than the others, but it is worth it in the end. This look adds major volume and is great for special occasions. 

#9 Pixie

A pixie haircut is another trending haircut for women over 50. A pixie is super easy to style and works for just about every hair type and face shape. There are many different variations of the pixie cut, which creates a lot of options. By cutting off the bulk of your hair, you open your face to show your features. 

#10 Bixie

A combination of a bob cut and a pixie cut is a bixie. This newest trending hairstyle also opens your face up, giving a more youthful and fresher look. Blending the two looks gives your hair more fullness and length than a pixie.
