100+ Edgy and Stylish Haircuts for Women Over 50

So, this is 50. Reaching your golden years can bring a lot of changes: children move out of the house, you get closer to retirement, and your body looks and feels different than it did, before. In addition to cleaning out your wardrobe, you may also change your hairstyle. The following looks are the best hairstyles for women over 50:

• The “V” cut. Famous for being a “mom” haircut, the “v” cut is also amazingly easy to style. It follows the scalp’s natural shape, which makes it fall in the right place with little to no effort on your part.
• Natural curls. Hair becomes notoriously harder to style with age. Try looking for heat-free methods to style your hair or make an attempt to embrace your natural waves.
• Colors, colors, and more colors. It may sound funny, but 50 and beyond is a time to experiment. You no longer have to worry about embarrassing your kids, and retirement is just around the corner! Whether embracing your natural gray or trying something completely new, colors can be a way to express yourself during this time.

These are just a few tips to jog your imagination. The next 102 hairstyles will give you even more inspiration.

#73: The Mild Ombre

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

#80: Ladylike Lavender

#92: Platinum Side Swoop
