5 Fabulous Haircuts for Women Over 50

Now that you’ve turned 50, do you find yourself questioning what hairstyle you can pull off? We’ve found there’s no limit to the looks women can pull off. And when it comes to short hairstyles, try mixing it up and experimenting with fun new looks that will suit you.

Stacey Dexter, owner and stylist at the Clip Joint, rounded up five models to showcase different haircuts and styles. Instead of focusing on the length of hair, Dexter says women really decide on their style based more on the trends, the styling time it takes, or sometimes they just want a cute, different cut. Hairstyles for women over 50 can be anything but boring.

“You don’t have to cut your hair short when you turn a certain age,” Dexter says. “Go with what works for you, and I’ve found that’s different for everyone. After all, unlike an outfit, you wear your hair every day and you need to feel comfortable and love it!”

So, get inspired! Whether you like long hair or short – or somewhere in between – these trendy hairstyles are perfect for women in the prime of the lives.
