25 Trendy Shoulder Length Hairstyles For Women Over 50

Most women over 50 prefer shorter or medium haircuts, and that’s perfectly okay. When it comes to the length of your hair, there are no rules. You simply choose whatever suits you and works for you.

I made this small collection of shoulder-length hair for women over 50 inspo pics, and I hope they’ll be helpful to you. Actually, I’m sure you’ll find the perfect hairstyle you’ll want to try out ASAP.

1. Low Maintenance Haircut For Women Over 50

A layered cut is the best option for anyone who wants to get a low-maintenance haircut. If you want to spice it up, simply add bangs, and you’ll get an effortless look for every occasion.

2. Curled Bob On Gray Hair

Whenever you get tired of the classic mid-length bob, you just grab a curling iron and make these wonderful curls. The best thing is that there is no woman this curled bob wouldn’t suit.

3. Flawless Vintage Curls

For a glam look, always choose vintage curls. The good thing about them is that they also hold the shape longer than any other curls.

4. Layered Collarbone-Length Haircut

If you’re one of those women who prefers keeping a low-maintenance hair routine, this layered collarbone-length haircut is the hairstyle for you.

5. Naturally Curly Hair

On the other hand, if you have curly hair, this hairstyle will make your life so much easier because it doesn’t require any special kind of treatment.

6. Layered Bob For Thin Hair

If you have naturally thin hair, try this inverted layered bob haircut. It will add volume and movement to your hair and instantly make it look thicker.

7. Feathered Bob

The feathering effect is finally back in style! It doesn’t only look amazing, but it also adds serious texture to the hair.

8. Bob With Bangs Tucked Behind The Ear

This is one of those rare effortless hairstyles that look very formal and elegant. The good news is that it can be worn as an everyday style as well.

9. Layered Bob With Highlights

If you want to create an illusion of a slimmer face, layers should always be your go-to hairstyle. Oh, and it would be rude not to mention these stunning blonde highlights that make this look so flawless.

10. Inverted Bob On Gray Hair

If your hair has already turned gray, I’m sure this picture will motivate you to quit dying it and embrace your natural color. After all, silver is indeed the new blonde.

11. The 1950s Curled Hairstyle

In my opinion, this was the era of the fanciest and the most stylish hairstyles. Even today, every time a client has a special occasion, they always ask for these vintage curls from the 1950s.

12. Flipped Bob

In a sea of different bob types, the flipped bob is my favorite. If you make the perfect flip, you’ll get a hairstyle that can be worn anywhere.

13. Gray Coils Hairstyle

It’s natural, voluminous, very easy to maintain, and looks perfect. Sounds like a dream-come-true for every woman.

14. Razor Cut Hairstyle With Bangs

Lisa Rinna

If you have medium or thick hair, you should try this haircut. It will flatter your hair texture and you’ll get rid of tangles once and for all.

15. Loose Waves With Curtain Fringe

These before vs. after pictures are my favorite. Just look how much a good haircut with the right bangs can change your entire look. Her face is refreshed and she looks about ten years younger.

16. Youthful Shag With Curtain Bangs

This is the perfect example of the way shag suits absolutely everyone, no matter their age, face shape, or even hair texture.

17. Straight Mullet On Red Hair

I can’t decide what looks more beautiful, the mullet haircut or the hair color. I’m so happy that mullets are on the rise again.

18. Rich Messy Curls

Sadly, messy curls aren’t for everyone. You need to know how to wear them and this woman is doing that job perfectly.

19. ’70s Shag Haircut

Look how much volume the shag haircut added to the hair, especially at the top. Now, look at the woman’s face and you’ll see how much slimmer it looks in the second picture. Unbelievable what a simple haircut can do, right?

20. Curly Shag With Baby Fringes

If you have a broad forehead, consider getting baby bangs. If you look more carefully at the woman in the picture, you’ll notice that she has a very wide forehead but you can’t see it at first glance because the fringes have neutralized that width.

21. Permed Bob Hairstyle

Even though permed hair was out of fashion for a while, it’s having a major comeback. Even men do it nowadays. I also like perm and agree that it creates natural-looking curls. However, be careful with it and don’t do it too often because it can seriously damage your hair.

22. Side Swept A-Line Haircut

Most women over 50 love this type of bob because of its simplicity. On the other hand, I like it because you can ‘hide’ the side of your face you don’t particularly like and highlight the other one.

23. Bixie With Curtain Bangs

Besides giving you a chic and modern look, the superpower of a bixie haircut is that it can take a few years off your face.

24. Choppy Bob With Side-Swept Bangs

If you have flat and thin hair that desperately needs some texture and volume, the choppy bob is the haircut you should try ASAP.

25. Shoulder-Length Shaggy Mullet

When you can’t decide between a shag and a mullet, you simply choose a shaggy mullet! Trust me, you can’t go wrong with it.
