Photos of 20 Best Hairstyles for Women Over 50

Frame your face with sideswept bangs that hit just above your eyebrows while letting  gentle waves give your face the appearance of youthful fullness. Bonus: Try a copper red hair color to add warmth and glow to your complexion.

If your hair is thinning, look no further: This is the pro-approved cut that will work wonderfully for you. Plus, it's so versatile — you can wear it straight, curly, wavy, pinned back ... the possibilities are endless.

If you want to add a little bounce to your look, try parting your shoulder-length locks to the side and blowing out your hair super-smooth, adding a little flick with your brush towards the ends for slight waviness.

Reminiscent of Mia Farrow's iconic pixie, Ellen's short cut is a great option for women without time for lots of styling. If you're always on the go, try a super short 'do so you can simply wash and go in the AM.

If you love to show off your makeup and jewelry and your hair is very curly, try Viola Davis's close crop for a sophisticated 'do that works with any outfit.

If your hair is starting to thin out and you've always wanted to go short, now's the time to give it a try. Getting a textured pixie cut allows for so many different styles — you can slick it back, mess it up, even do finger waves if you're skilled enough.

Nervous about dull skin? Ask your stylist if a soft ombre, or sombre, hair color is right for you. The hair begins to lighten up right around the eyes and cheeks, giving the face a gorgeous glow.

Hitting just below the ear, this sweet bob shows off your face without being quite as exposing as a pixie. Ask for a face-framing layer that rests along your cheekbones to prettily emphasize the fullest part of your face.

To get perfectly glossy waves (or any other style) without damaging your locks, always use a heat protectant spray beforehand. A quick spritz could keep your hair looking healthy, soft, and silky for life.

If you've got thick, long curls, you can add extra dimension by asking your stylist for thin, hand-painted babylights throughout.

For women who wish to soften sharper features, a soft wavy long bob cut can offer balance. Add luminous shine by applying a glossing serum throughout, focusing on the ends.

Having volume throughout your hair — as opposed to just the ends — gives your face a fuller, more youthful look. Plus, you can rock any kind of hair part with this look, even right down the center.

Dana Delany rocks gentle curls with a red glow. Her long, side-swept layers and bounce give her look a youthful feel. Born with straight hair? Take a 2-inch curling iron and curl strands away from the face.

Lots of flirty layers keep Keaton's style fresh and full of movement; face-framing fringe also offers a fun complement to her bold specs. Ask for a layered bob that falls just below the jaw line and includes shorter fringes around the face and side-swept bangs. To style, use a round brush to flip ends out as you blow dry.

Want to go short? Try Fonda's modern take on the shag. To snag this look, ask your stylist to cut choppy layers from front to back with shorter layers framing your face. Style the layers flipped at the ends with molding gel to create the texture that makes this crop pop.

Long, wave-infused locks like the Material Girl's flatter a long face shape and soften angular features. To style long to medium layers, wrap 1-inch sections of hair around a curling iron from roots to ends, making sure to curl the strands near your face toward the back. Finish with a little hair spray, and use your fingers to break up the curls.

Thin hair can quickly become flat and lifeless, so a flipped-out shaggy bob like the one Jodie Foster wears is a great way to add volume and movement. When styling, flip up the ends in sections with a curling iron. This will create an illusion that you have more hair than you actually do.

Helen Mirren's chin-length crop is perfect for fine hair that could benefit from a volume boost. Ask your stylist to keep the length full and blunt, without layering, to create an illusion of thickness. Avoid tools like razors and texture shears. However, slight layers around the face can flatter your appearance. When styling, use a round brush to gain extra lift at the crown.

Wear your curly hair on the longer side in a layered, collar bone-length cut like Andie MacDowell. This will help prevent the dreaded poof ball that can occur with a short curly crop. Ask your stylist to add plenty of layers throughout to remove some of the bulk.

Try a long shag like Suzanne Somers for a sexy 'do. This style adds texture and volume to straight hair that could not be achieved if left long and heavy. Ask your stylist about adding bangs to your cut. Depending on your face shape, you may want shorter bangs or longer ones you can leave side swept.
