If your medium-length hair is flat, you can wear big voluminous curls all over your hair. Start by washing your hair with shampoo and conditioner and then you need to part your hair in sections and put large rollers in your hair. Let the hair air dry then after a few hours you can remove the curlers and style.

Just because you are over 50 doesn’t mean that you can’t sport flirty and fierce hairstyles. If you developed wrinkles and fine lines in the past few years, choose a hairstyle that does the best job of hiding those. If you have all gray hair, a very long hairstyle may not be the best choice because it makes your face sullen. It is better to wear a shorter style. Finally, exhibit confidence with your new look.
