Soft curly bobs

Hair-fashion trends for 2015 are full of layered styles and bobs of various lengths, making it a lot easier to find the best hairstyles. For women over 50 who do like the easy-style benefits of a short layered haircut, or have fine or thin hair, the curly pixie or wavy bob are definitely two good choices.

Angled bobs – a classic among best hairstyles for women over 50

To freshen up with a modern looking shape, you can have a youthful angled bob that slopes down to just below the chin – or longer – without it looking the least bit ‘too young’ for you!

The shorter bobs, cut into the nape, with some soft curls around the head are an excellent way to get more volume into fine or thin hair.

Or try an ultra-modern stacked-back bob, which uses the ‘stack’ cutting technique to add a nice ‘bump’ of volume at the back. Wear it smoothly styled with bright highlights or curly with harmonising dual-highlights and you’ve got one of the new season’s very best hairstyles for women over 50 (or under 50 for that matter!)

Best hairstyles for women over 50 – shoulder length looks

Jennifer Grey – aged 54 – is famous for her appearances on Dancing with the Stars and her shoulder-length layered cut is an excellent example of one of the best hairstyles for women over 50.

The style has large, defined waves which soften the face and with subtle highlights or a gentle sombré shade lightening the lower lengths, this is a certainly one of the best hairstyles for women over 50 to wear!

Lisa Kudrow knows how to choose the best hairstyles

For women over 50, who have always worn their hair long, blondeand loose, it can be difficult to make the transition to something more flattering as you mature.

However, Lisa’s lightly layered, smooth shoulder length look, with side-parting and a flattering long fringe flicking out at cheekbone level, is a perfect example of how to get it right.

Her pale-blonde shade is softened with honey and caramel balayage showing how to continue to be a blonde-bombshell with superlative style and elegance, at 50+!

Colour tip:Although platinum blonde and ash-blonde will be coming into fashion next spring, the best hairstyles for women over 50 should be a warmer, golden blonde to flatter mature complexions.

So if you’re ready to shake up your look into a fresher, livelier image why not browse our Pophaircuts.com Inspiration Gallery of the best hairstyles for women over 50 right now!
