Bobs Remain Favourite Hairstyle For The Over 50s

Choosing a new hairstyle is never easy, but if your tresses have lost their lustre or your hair doesn’t appear as thick as it once did, it might be time to switch up your look. Bobs have long been a favourite style for the over-50s, which is why this could be the new do for you.

Bobs are the ultimate hairstyle, as they are easy to maintain and create the illusion of fuller, thicker hair. They frame the face well and different layers give the style texture.

According to Latest Hairstyles: “It’s typically cut to flatter mature ladies with naturally aging hair that benefits from being short.”

From Helen Mirren to Diane Keaton, the bob has been a strong look for many a famous face.

It is also a good choice for those who aren’t bold enough to go for a pixie cut, like Jamie Lee Curtis or Kris Jenner. This is another style that suits older women fabulously, as it gives hair texture and draws attention to defined cheekbones and jawline, instantly taking years off. Just look at Dame Judi Dench!

Lots of women tend to keep the same hairstyle from their youth, but this can be risky as hair can appear duller and more lifeless as it ages.

However, those who don’t want to go for the snip just yet should take inspiration from the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Jennifer Anniston, who are still rocking their long-layered locks.

The secret to this look is lots of layers, so the hair isn’t weighed down, and adding some bangs in, as this makes people focus on the eyes, lifts the face, and makes you look younger.
