They say 50 is the new 30, so it’s no wonder that older ladies are ditching the “shampoo and sets” for fun, flirty styles that ooze femininity and class. If you belong to the over 50 club but are stuck for inspiration, check out these trendy hairstyles and embrace your age without sacrificing style.
Helen Mirren is renowned for her extraordinary acting ability and her sophisticated beauty. This English Rose is showing no signs of wilting, and always has a fabulous haircut and hair color to match her youthful beauty. Here, Helen wears long, layered side-swept bangs that frames her eyes while adding hair volume to the rest of her hairstyle. Her hair has been tapered into the back of the neck with hair layers cut in throughout the crown and sides. To re-create this voluminous look at home, add hair mousse to the roots of the hair and blow-dry using a large round hair brush to give the hair a lift and a soft wave, like Helen’s.
Feeling feisty at fifty? Sharon Osbourne shows us how to add a little rock n’ roll to our hair with her vibrant red highlights and tousled short layers. Sharon wears her bangs asymmetrical and layered, to create softness against her square face shape. Her hair has been heavily layered throughout the crown and sides which creates volume at the top that tapers down nicely towards the cheekbones.
