Best Hairstyles for Women Over 40
When you watch television or flip through magazines, you might notice that a lot of the hairstyles found there look familiar. The women from the office or around town may have already started the trend locally. Hairstyles become popular for a reason—they look great, are flattering, and are usually easy to pull off. Here are some of the most popular looks that are ‘in’ right now and could be your next look:
Long, wavy hair with lots of layers
Shoulder length, curly hair
A-line and classic bobs
Long Wavy Hair with lots of Layers
This is typically a look that will work well on everyone. Long hair is very flattering on most people, and wavy hair is nearly as popular as curls are this season. Layers add dimension and volume and look great at all times; you don’t want hair that looks flat, lifeless, and dull. These are the best ways to prevent that from happening. If you follow this, chances are that you will be catching everyone’s attention—and in a good way.
Shoulder Length Curls
As mentioned before, curls are very popular and very sexy right now. Natural curls are the best, but even the ladies who have straight hair can get in on this. Sleep with curlers in your hair, or even sleep with it in a tight bun in order to get the curls that you want without the rollers. You can use a curling iron, or other methods to get the curls as well. But just as important as the curls is the length of the cut. Shoulder length is very flattering and works great for women who haven’t yet had the time to grow their hair out all the way.
A-Line and Classic Bobs
These types of hairstyles have been around for a long time. Classic bobs can either be very flattering or very unflattering. It is all about finding the right shape and length for the bob. However, if you are unsure, a bob with an A-line cut is often more flattering than the classic bob and it is easier to style in the morning.
Get the advice of your stylists and a few close friends and family members before you go through with the cut, in order to make sure that you are not doing anything that you will regret later. Don’t do anything that makes you uncomfortable, and be ready to embrace your new look. This is one of the best times to freshen up your look, just make sure that you keep it age appropriate. Maybe spend some time watching runway shows or seeing who walks down the red carpet wearing the hairstyle that you have in mind. These are some of the best ways to find the perfect hairstyle and decide whether or not it is ‘in’ right now. Consider all of your options and find something that you absolutely love. Your 40’s are a great time and you should embrace them
