33 Best Hairstyles for Your 50s
I try to be as inclusive as I can be, so I had to find the best hairstyles for your 50s on Google since I did almost every other decade for older woman. Ladies over 50 have a lot more hair diversity than I thought. There are some 50 year old woman with long hair still, and some with fine thin hair. And then there are those women aging gracefully but with fine thin hair and maybe with glasses and want hairstyles to function around their eyewear. Some women have been a mom. Others have never wanted to experience motherhood. The variety in this age group is honestly astonishing to me, but I’m not surprised with all the knowledge they have gathered along during their lives.
With the many different type of women over 50, I tried to find over 50 pictures to show hairstyles I think would be great to show off your highlights and maybe gray hair. You will be looking like a cute Christie Brinkley, Helen Mirren, or Diane Keaton after looking at these articles. We have the wanted sexy shorts by older women, medium lengths, long hair, bangs, bob, shag, pixie cuts, all the popular haircuts for your age, face shapes, and even body type like thin or plus size. We even have the hottest hair colors you’d want to stay young living. And what wakes me up in the morning: hairstyles!! They give you new looks everyday! I found some modern, but simple and classy pin up curls that you can do with curly or straight hair! But I had to make sure I found some youthful hairstyles for over 50 year olds because sometimes we just want to hide our age. No matter though, you will always remain beautiful.
1. Hairstyles for Fine Thin Hair Over 50 Pictures
A short pixie cut all around is a very popular haircut for ladies over 50. Sometimes, I think they’re the only ladies that can pull it off. I love it on blondes, but brunette, black, orange, red would all work with this hairstyle.
2. New Looks for Older Women
A step by step tutorial with pictures are always helpful at any age. The chignon is cute if you have at least medium length hair to do it with. If you’re a sexy shorts kind of girl, tie your hair in a low ponytail and just tie the scarf like she did to add a youthful new look during your week and busy day when you hair should be out of the way.
3. Short Gray Pixie Cuts
This gray ombre effect is beautiful and will not have you look old at all because it looks like you did it on purpose, which you did, rather than just growing gray hair naturally. I think this would be best on short hair where you can see the top, but you might be able to figure it out on your long hair.
4. Aging Gracefully Ponytail
If you’ve been looking for hairstyles for 50 year old woman with long hair, add this to your Pinterest board. It’s a simple, normal pony tail, with a literal twist that adds a little excitement with new looks. You can even do it with thick or thin hair, you just might want to tease if you have thin hair or no volume to get more texture.
5. Medium Lengths Bob – Blondes
A blonde bob with highlights is gorgeous for fair skin. If it’s chin length, it could really flatter any face shapes and have you really look like you’re aging gracefully. The bob is so simple and glassy, you will never look out of style.
6. French Braids – All Face Shapes on Google
Long hair? Don’t care with this braided crown. You don’t have to have long hair to braid it into this crown. If you hair is as short as a pixie cut, you can still put your hair into a braided crown. Use the strands you have to braid in a circular direction on your head.
7. Classy Hair Colors and Bangs
The layered bob will give thin hair immense volumization. And if you can’t get your roots done all the time, It’s okay because having them poke out in this hairstyle is a cute surprise that will give you great, natural colour.

What beautiful curls you can get through a version of pin up curls. They’re very modern and although it may have been inspired by the 50s look, you will not not be looking a day over 50 with this hairstyle that would look good on any older women. This long hair style would look fabulous if you’re plus size since it’ll elongate your appearance.
9. Sexy Shorts and Highlights
I like this bob with bangs because the way she styles it gives her a lot of volume even for thin hair and being in her 50s. It’s not hard to replicate either. Just get the blonde highlights, the hair cut, and use your flat iron to straighten and curve in different, subtle directions.
