10 Incredibly Beautiful Hairstyles for Women Over 40
When you’re not 30 anymore, you may think you have no choice when it comes to hairstyles. The funny thing is, there are many hairstyles to consider that 20 something ladies can only dream of. Remember, the age isn’t a barrier to trying something new – be it a new makeup idea or a new hairstyle. You are beautiful, elegant, successful, smart and simply awesome! Whatever your face shape, skin tone or hair type, you will certainly find the most flattering and beautiful hairstyle for you. Here are some simple yet chic hairstyles for women over 40:
1. Cute feminine curls
Whatever your hair type or color is, you can’t go wrong with this hairstyle. Cute feminine curls will make you look 10 years younger and add some volume if you have a thin hair. This hairstyle is also perfect for those times when you wake up with a bit dirty hair and don’t have time for washing, drying and styling. If you have a medium length hair, make your curls closer to the scalp and tousle them to add a modern twist to your look.
2. Medium length layers
If you have medium length hair and don’t want to change it, the medium length layers are your best bet. First of all, the length is considered age-appropriate for women over 40 – it’s not too short and not too long, just perfect. Plus, you don’t need to spend hours styling your hair in the morning. Just make sure it’s clean and finely combed. If you have thin hair, use old school hair rollers to style beautifully your layers.
3. Long soft waves
Have no idea what to do with your long hair today? Skip the bun hairstyles. Long soft waves make a beautiful hairstyle for any occasion. You can highlight some tresses to add a modern touch to your look. Avoid bangs and don’t use too much styling products. Your locks should look natural. This hairstyle is sure to knock years off your face!
4. Shoulder-length curls
If you have a very thick hair, feminine curls can add years to your face. Shoulder-length curls, though, will make you look younger and help you keep your voluminous locks in place all day long. While many women over 40 tend to cut their thick hair and opt for simpler hairstyles like pixies and short crops, you should be proud of having such a gorgeous hair.
5. Blonde fusion
Hitting 40 makes blonde re-consider their hair color and haircut. White it’s not youthful color, which is why it’s time to opt for golden or try blonde fusion. Mix golden and white to create a youthful shade. If you have a mid-length or long hair, curl your locks away from your face and slightly fluff up to create one of the most elegant hairstyles for women over 40.

6. Asymmetrical bob
Asymmetrical bob will give an edgy vibe to your standard look that you can customize with colors and curls. Slightly longer toward the front and cropped in the back, the asymmetrical bob haircut can help you look young and trendy even in 50s. Opt for soft curls to complete your look. Since this haircut isn’t for everyone, make sure you consult a stylist or hairdresser before cutting your hair.
7. Easy updo
Easy updo is one of the best roll-out-of-bed hairstyles for women over 40. It looks classic, elegant, and just fabulous. Raise slightly on the crown and let a few locks fall on your cheek. There are many easy updo hairstyles for different hair length, which means you can have a new hairstyle every single day with little to no effort.
8. Long and straight
There’s a popular myth that women over 40 can’t wear long hair. Ignore that myth. The long, slightly layered cut works on nearly each woman regardless of her age. If you have no time for curls and waves in the morning, grab your hair straightener and create a chic hairstyle in a matter of a few minutes.
9. Short elegant pixie
There are many ways to wear a pixie haircut, including casual and dressy. If you’re looking for a beautiful office-friendly hairstyle, short elegant pixie is your perfect bet. It takes minutes to style and doesn’t require a lot of styling products. This modern style is a wonderful choice for women over 40 who want to look gorgeous each day without a lot of maintenance.
10. Playful curls
I love this look. It’s chic. It’s easy to do. And it’s incredibly youthful. Curl up the ends of your locks and slightly tousle them to create playful curls. This hairstyle is ideal for imperfect ends and layers that give the illusion of fuller volume at the ends and the roots alike. Playful curls can make your fine hair look more luscious.
I don’t follow the crowd and don’t believe that as women get older the hair should get shorter and shorter. Getting the flattering haircut is an easy way to make yourself look younger. If your hairstyle doesn’t flatter your face, it’s adding years to your look so don’t be afraid to experiment with different hairstyles. Regardless of your age, you have the full right to wear any hairstyle you love.
