Would you like to have a new look, but you're worried that it won't match your age? Don't worry! There are lots of cute hairstyles for women over 50. What matters is actually not your age, but rather whether you and your style match. You shouldn't, in other words, pick something that happens to be a trend right now, at least not without first thinking whether the style matches your bone features, your facial shape, your way of life, your personality, your hair, and so on.

Some Guidelines on the Cute Hairstyles for Women Over 50:

Women over 50 tend to know what they want with their life, so they are less likely to follow fads. This is why there are so many hairstyles out there for them as well, ranging from super long to really short. Be aware, however, that long hair elongates your face, dragging your lines downwards and potentially making you look older. Try to stick to shoulder length at most, therefore, and trim it regularly.

The Problem with Long Hair:

Of course, long hair is incredibly beautiful and feminine. So if you are not ready to say goodbye to your locks, train yourself in some cute updos so that you can style it in lots of different ways. On the other hand, this also means you have to spend a lot of time doing your hair, so you may just want to cut it short instead and save yourself a lot of time.

The Issue of Hair Color:

Then there is the issue of color. Really cute hairstyles for women over 50 tend to be warm in tones, because they make mature skin look better. Don't go for really dark shades if you hope to hide your gray hair; light colors are much better at camouflaging it. Plus, your skin will become paler as you age, so if you go for something dark, your skin will only look whiter.

It is recommended that you consult with trained hair colorists at least once a year. They can help you come up with colors that really bring out the beauty in your current skin, and how you can hide any imperfections in your hair. A yearly consultation is generally enough, and you can simply maintain their advice for 12 months.

This does bring up the issue about whether or not to box dye our hair. We all know we shouldn't do it, but we all do it anyway. Make sure, therefore, that you start on the gray strands, as this needs more time to absorb the color.

This is really all you need to know about hairstyles for women over 50. The simple thing is that you can't tell a woman of that age what they should do anymore, and quite rightly so. They make their own choices, based on things that suit them, not based on what a 20 year old model airbrushed to look older tells them that they should have this season. Mature women rock, regardless of the hairstyle they choose to have, and they will always look their best.
