Hairstyles ideas for mature women over 50 years. Check out ellen Barkin's modern bob hairstyle, or Joan Allen's sassy half updo; see if Diane Sawyer medium long bob works for you!
For active women, shorter, spikier hairstyles lend a certain sex appeal; if you're more conservative, shoulder-length cuts with bangs are just the thing, depending on the face shape.
You don't have to don stiff, matronly updos once you kit 50. A half-updo with sassy tresses at the nape of the neck is age-appropriate, more current and is so soft and feminine.
Shorter hairstyles have face lifting effects, make eyes pop out more and are very feminine. Razor cut ends make wrinkles appear less visible, also positioning them towards the jawline, instantaneously lift up features and creates the illusion of a longer neck. Opt for shorter upper layers to give height to the crown and give more body to mature thin hair. Deep side partings - see Ellen Barkin's - put any face shape into favorable light.
To style it, blow-dry hair at the roots first, then run through fingers to give the 'do more body. When hair's almost dry, use a paddle brush to tidy ends and curve at the sides to hug the face. Mist with soft hold hairspray to finish the look.
