While wondering how the years go by so fast, you should realize that your face changes in time, and so must your hairdo. A hairstyle according to your age will not only make you feel more confident, but will also keep you fresh. This article will give you some tips for some low-maintenance, easy hairstyles for women over 40.
Most Flattering Haircuts for Women in Their 40s
The long bob
The long bob is an ideal haircut for a woman who wants a mid-length, low maintenance hairstyle that is chic and fashionable at the same time. Ideally, the long bob should not be longer than the nape of your neck and shoulders. This hairstyle works great with all face shapes, as well as hair thickness.
The shoulder grazer
Along the lines of the long bob, the shoulder grazer is a hairstyle that is not too long and not too short. It works best on oval-shaped faces. To get this hairstyle, ask for a shoulder length layered haircut that has the shorter layers starting from your face, and then progressively moving towards the shoulders. However, if your hair is thick, but still want this hairdo, you should ask your stylist to remove the extra hair with razors.
If your hair is naturally curly, then this easy washing hairstyle is perfect for your needs. To get this hairdo, you should simply ask for long layers, starting from your face. However, if you have straight hair, you can achieve the full volume effect by using a barreled curling iron. This will guarantee the elegant yet fresh aspect you always wanted.
The stacked bob
A classic hairstyle that will fit any woman of any age. Very useful if you are trying to look professional, as this hairdo will grant you the respect you deserve, especially in your 40s. To get this simple haircut, just ask for a blunt and layered cut that stretches a bit over the base of your neck. To get this right, the hair in the back should be shorter than on the sides.
If you are pleased with your long hair, you might want to get a straight and easy to wash and wear style. Just ask your hairstylist to trim just the tip of your hairs, so that you’re free of split ends. To maintain it, be sure to use moisturizing shampoo, and some frizz cream afterwards.
Top Knot Bun
For the comfortable yet classy look, the top knot bun is the ideal choice in terms of hairstyle. To get it, nothing was simpler, as it can greatly complement casual wear, and also looks chic when combined with an evening dress and/or a gown. On a bad hair day, this hairdo can be your savior, too. Furthermore, you should not be afraid of wearing it, as it fits any hair texture and face shape. Adding accessories to this hairstyle can bling it up in ways you didn’t think were possible!
The Classic Bob
This one is a classic and one of my all times favorite. This easy to keep hairdo will surely give you the edge if you are trying to look professional, because it will get you the respect you deserve, a value that needs more and more appreciation as you age, especially in your 40s. Your career is improving, you most likely have a family, and you do not have time to waste on your hairstyle. To get this simple yet effective haircut, just ask for a blunt and layered cut that barely stretches below your shoulder line. Just wash and be ready in minutes with this hairdo!
