1. Shaggy Lob

Let’s be honest, we’ll always be jealous of Robin Wright. Especially when she’s rocking such a groovy cut. This shaggy lob with bangs walks the line between playful and demure.

It may not be the “Rachel,” but Jennifer Aniston’s long layers are still pretty iconic. This killer cut adds a youthful softness to the face in a simple, elegant way.

3. Long Fringe

A blunt bang is ultra-edgy, but softer, curtain-style fringe is an eye-catching alternative. These face-framing tresses are flirty, fun, and perfect for women of all ages.

5. Ultra-Long

Some say super-long strands should be reserved for the under 30 crowd. Salma Hayek is definitive proof that they’re dead wrong.

8. Blunt Bangs

Looking for something a little more sleek? A blunt bang highlights bone structure and draws attention to the eyes, shaving years off of your look. This has to be one of the most flattering haircuts for women over 50.

9. Layered Mid-Length

Take a cue from supermodel Cindy Crawford. This mid-length haircut is ideal for women over 50. Our tresses tend to lose volume as we age, and these sexy-shoulder skimming layers can serve as a substitute for that necessary fullness and body.

10. Angled Bob

Naomi Watts’ blunt, angled bob is the edgy but grown-up cut we’ve been searching for. Shorter in the back and just a bit longer than chin-length in the front, this hardline bob expertly emphasizes and defines your jawline.

11. Textured Pixie

This English actress is a true style genius. A textured pixie is one of the most versatile cuts for women over 50, highlighting your face’s best features.

12. Sleek Lob

A shoulder-skimming crop is the low-maintenance solution to haircut boredom. Unlike a blowdry-everyday-bob, this longer look is just as chic but requires way less work.
