In the past, people would say that when you hit your 40th birthday, you were “over the hill.” You also might have had “one foot in the grave.” However, times have changed. Now, many women live well into their 90s and beyond. This means you have decades left to do all the things you’ve always wanted to do. Age shouldn’t stop you. With that in mind, you will want to look your best, no matter what your age is. Haircut styles should reflect you and your personal taste and style. We have some great haircuts for you whether you are in your 40s, 50s, 60s or beyond.
Hairstyles to Make You Look Younger at 40
There are lots of hairdos that make you look younger at 40. First, you may want to try a bob. This is especially true for women who have wavy hair. These soft waves blur crow’s feet and other signs of aging. Bobs with waves can also open up the face to the light, which helps the face appear younger as well. If you add bangs to the bob, they will open up your face as well.
You may also want to try a pixie haircut. For many women, this type of haircut adds volume and layers, which is a great way to disguise thinning hair. Pixies have the tendency to draw the eye upward, which means your face becomes longer and thinner.
An asymmetrical crop cut is also a way to draw the eye toward the vertical, rather than the horizontal line. The crop, which is another cut that ends near the jaw, also draws the eye upward. The lines on an asymmetrical crop also blur fine facial lines.
Hairstyles to Look Younger at 50
If you have moved past the half-century mark, never fear. There are lots of hairstyles for you as well. First, you may want to think about a long bob (or a lob) with a deep side part. This hairstyle helps to blur the lines of the face. It also opens the face up to the light, which makes you look younger as well. This type of part is also great for women with thinning hair. A deep side part can hide many flaws.
You might also want to think about a pixie cut. Pixie cuts are great for creating length at the top of your head, as well as volume. Think about trying a pixie with asymmetrical layers. These layers can create a wispy look, which diffuses light. It also shifts the attention away from facial features that may be showing age, such as the neck.
Hairdos over 60
Women who are looking for hairdos over 60, or hairstyles for over 70 are also in luck. There are lots of different hairstyles you can try. First, don’t let anyone talk you into cutting your hair if it’s thick and long. We can do all kinds of face-framing cuts for long hair. And, unless your hair is thinning, you can keep your tresses. Second, you may want to think about cuts that will let you keep your shoulder-length hair. Shoulder-length bobs are perfect for wavy hair. They also soften the lines of your face. You might also want to think about a blunt cut with bangs. Wispy bangs can take years off your face. If you have gray hair, make sure your stylist takes the yellow out of the gray. Yellow can be aging.
