DO’S: REJUVENATING HAIRSTYLES FOR 50+ LADIES
Ladies, let’s be honest: short hair really makes you younger.
Note: short hair is best for a fine build and face. Would you rather keep your long locks? Then light them up nicely.
Tip: make sure you create volume above your ears (this emphasizes your so-called youthful triangle).
The pixie is a feminine, cool, short haircut that has made its comeback.
Are you going for a playful pixie?
Then make sure that some tufts fall into your face. Lines and wrinkles are less noticeable. And you have a fashion responsible look!
Pst. How about… just gray? Nothing to be ashamed of!
A bob after your 50th?
To do! A bob accentuates your cheekbones and fits perfectly around your jaw. Hello, beauty! If you have thin and straight hair, it is better not to cut your hair to one length, but go for a pixie or leave it slightly longer. But remember: a bob is great. Even if you are over 50.
Ladies Bob Hairstyles for 50+
MEDIUM LENGTH HAIR
Do you prefer not to put your hair up and just love to show off your long locks? Of course, that’s possible!
Remember: soft shapes make your face less harsh and younger. In combination with soft colors, this hairstyle will undoubtedly look good on you!
Hairstyles 50+ medium length
What we would rather not see in hairstyles for 50+ ladies are straight bangs.
Bluntly cut bangs put the focus on your eyes. Including lines and wrinkles. And we would rather not!
Do you still want a pony?
Then you go for one that has a soft and playful cut… But only if you absolutely want one 😉
In addition, avoid harsh, straight lines in other areas of the style. We do not recommend hard corners either! These shapes/lines also accentuate any wrinkles! Go for soft, wavy shapes for a younger l too.
Last, but definitely not least. Long, loose hair is a don’t. Your vertical lines in your face will stand out and this makes an older look a fact. So don’t. Do you have long hair? Light it up!

How do you choose a 50-plus hairstyle that makes you younger? 8 Tips
the haircut makes you younger
Not straight-cut heavy bangs but bangs in light tufts or a strand of hair on the side. Those light tufts or strands to the side soften your face and also cover your forehead, an area where wrinkles often form. Bangs can also distract from your eyebrows, which is also often a problem area as you get older. Bangs can give you a facelift, as it were.
Where do you divorce?
The place of your divorce can make you older. A straight part in the middle is often not the best place as you get older. In any case, a parting on the side provides some more volume on top. In addition, it ensures that thinning hair on top is less noticeable. Do not draw a tight, straight part, but zigzag your part. Or avoid divorce altogether.
3- The bob, a youthful haircut for over the 50s
Bob is a hairstyle that will suit all ages. There is always a variation that suits you. A bob style is suitable if you have thin, fine hair or thick hair. You can also adjust the length to your face shape. In addition, you can also opt for a bob with bangs or locks on the side
A haircut should not end on the widest part of your face. So if you have a round face, a length beyond the jawline is better. If you have a wide jawline, opt for a slightly longer bob…
One reason short hair often looks good when you get older is that long hair draws attention downwards, emphasizing the drooping, sagging areas of the face. Short hair turns your gaze upwards and gives your face a facelift, as it were.
Short hair is back in fashion in 2023. The short pixie is becoming more and more popular. A hairstyle with playful tufts can make you a lot younger.
Short hair is often easy to maintain. It will be fine quickly. But with short hair, you have to go to the hairdresser more often because it quickly grows out of shape.
Go for layering
Layered haircuts can add volume and make thick hairless heavy. Layers may be less suitable for very thin and fine hair. Fine layers around your face give you a softer expression and rejuvenate your face.
Too many short layers are often less successful than long layers. Has long hair cut in layers from the bottom so that it looks smoother and falls better, less straight?
A haircut in a lighter shade makes you look younger
Just like your hair turning gray, your skin, and even the color of your eyes lose pigment too. All your colors become less bright and pronounced. Dark colors such as black or dark brown can therefore look less good on you as you get older.
Dark colors often make wrinkles and other skin imperfections more visible. It is therefore often a good idea to choose a shade lighter. Especially if you have fair skin.
Hairstyles for over 50 from warm to cool
Over 50, many women are partially or completely gray. That not only means that your natural hair is getting lighter, but gray is also a cool color. With your age, your skin often takes on a cooler shade. That means that cool hair colors, so without yellow, gold, or orange tones, suit you better.
Highlights around your face
In addition to lightening up your entire color, you can also refresh and lighten your hair with highlights. Better for your hair and it often looks beautiful and youthful when those highlights fall around your face.
Go for hairstyles that keep your hair healthy
Hairstyles that require blow-drying or styling every day are stressful for your hair whether it is gray or dyed. Gray hair is often already dry and cannot tolerate this well.
Heat with the dyed hair is also not recommended. Healthy hair is a sign of youth. Therefore, choose a hairstyle that you don’t have to do too much about and that keeps your hair healthy.
