Aging does not just mean wrinkles. It means your bone structure changes as do your tastes. You may not agree anymore with the style choices you made twenty years ago. To keep up with these changes within you, you need to update your look so you can like the women you are becoming and show everyone else you still have it. While some women passing fifty will take some drastic steps such as Botox or a facelift, something as easy as a sassy, spicy new haircut is all that is needed to make a world of difference. Read on to see how different Sassy Haircuts For Women Over 50 will give you an edgy youthful look.
The Straight Bob
As you get older, hair starts to get thinner and limp. The bob is a classical hairstyle that breathes some life back into it to give it bounce and body. The A-line ship will give you a contemporary look that can be softened with youthful bangs covering your forehead. Those with fine hair best carry this straight bob. Don’t go for this if you have thick hair, as it will just be a poufy mess. The best length for this cut is when hair in the front hits right at the chin. Any longer and you will instantly age even more. This cut complemented by a rich color to brighten your skin tone will leave you feeling fresh and stylish. Styling is quick with a small amount of moisturizing serum and a quick blow-dry using a flat paddle brush.
The Long Bob, “Lob”
This updated look provides you with the ease of short hair and the flexibility of long. Ask your hairstylist of choppy layers for a fun hairstyle that shows off your natural texture and allows you to experiment with all kinds of up-dos. This haircut is recommended for those with medium to thick hair with waves. For a trendy evening look, slightly backcomb to give it some volume and use a curling iron to twirl ends. Shake it out with your fingers for a sassy, sexy look. If you want to wear it up, buns and ponytails can be achieved for a sophisticated look without needing too many pins or hairspray.
Short Pixie Cut
Think Jamie Lee Curtis. Think Halle Berry. This haircut is short and easy to style. Whether you want to go for a sweet, feminine look for a messier, cool style, the short pixie can be altered to your tastes and goals. Ask for razored edges and wispy bangs with short layers at the back for a contemporary, soft style. For a look with a little more oomph, get a spiky short pixie with a textured back and super short bangs in the front. While those with straight hair mostly favor this look, older women with curly hair can also pull it off with a cropped back and longer front.
Long and Layered
Not everyone can pull off short hair. If you have a round or square face, long hair will create the right balance for a beautiful look. If you are looking to add some fun to your long hairstyle, ask for some extra layering to create volume, and have long bangs cut to sweep the forehead. Having an extreme side part will help hide a receding hairline and create a fuller look. Give it an extra boost with highlights in a few places around the face. While this hair length can take some extra time to style after a shower, you will not need to visit your hairstylist as often. Longer hair can lose its luster so weekly hair conditioning masks sessions are recommended.
