So you hit 50. Are you freaking out? You shouldn’t be. You are now officially in your prime! I’ve never understood why we get so freaked out over turning the big 5-0. It’s nothing to be scared of, and I see it as a sign of accomplishment!
But one thing I can agree with is that once you get older, you can start to get bored with your appearance. There’s nothing wrong with the way you look, but you just want to spice things up! It’s not worth getting an entirely new wardrobe, because who has the money? But what you can do is get a new haircut and totally rock it!
I know a lot of people worry about haircuts because if you get the wrong one, it can feel like the end of the world. That’s why you should totally go with one of these awesome cuts to make sure you’re looking chic right off the bat!
The best part about a long bob is…well, everything. With little to no upkeep, you can look professional, yet fun, without a ton of effort. It frames your face beautifully, too! A lot of celebrities have been rocking the long bob recently, because it can go from the red carpet to chilling on the couch in basically no time.
I know you think you can’t pull this off, but you absolutely can. Embrace the gray, embrace the short length, and embrace all the extra time you’ll have since you no longer have to deal with your hair.
“It’s a great look for people who don’t have a lot of time in the morning to do much with their hair,” says hairdresser Venina Senn. “It works for people with very fine hair, but also thicker hair.”
As we age, our hair tends to get lighter. Often times, women feels as though this totally washes them out, but that doesn’t have to be the case! Longer waves with some subtle highlights can give you that sun-kissed look without having to actually be kissed by the sun. Long waves say “I’m here, I’m confident, and I’m naturally beautiful.” Which, frankly, we all are.
Depending on your hair type, a shag cut can be the perfect way to keep some character in your style. Lots of choppy layers means you can still keep your length, but not have to worry about constantly styling it. The more “casual” look to this style is effortless, and can be dressed up or down depending on where you’re going.
“All lifestyles would be perfect for this look as long as the person is less detailed and more into the lived-in, undone, messy hair look,” says hairstylist Jenna Erin Murray.
