Soft curly bobs

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!)

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.
