Hot And Trendy Hairstyles For Women Over 40

Bob Hairstyle Straight
Turning 40 doesn’t mean that you have to give up on having fabulous, youthful looking hair. It also doesn’t mean that you have to settle for your natural texture and lob off all of your hair into a super short “soccer mom” style. Although you may be at a point where your hair is no longer a top priority, there are plenty of easy to manage styles that are still extremely cute and trendy. Here are some of the best hairstyles for women over 40:

A sleek angled bob is an excellent option for a mature woman. You can wear the bob at varying lengths and keep a longer, youthful length in the front while trimming the hair shorter in the back to keep your neck cool and to prevent extra fuss. This style looks great smooth and straight and you will be able to easily achieve that texture with some serum and a blow dryer or a straightening iron. It won’t take long to style but it will look fun and stylish.

If you are ready to lose a lot of length, a piecey pixie cut will eliminate long styling times, but will still leave you with a fierce style. Pixie cuts do require frequent trims to maintain a fresh look so make sure you can schedule a cut every few weeks. After your hair has dried, run a bit of pomade throughout your hair to create a piecier texture.

Razored layer cuts are great for women over 40 because they require minimal maintenance and styling times. You can wear your hair straight, curly, or wavy and it will look great in razored layers. You can also wear your hair very long or short and you will not need frequent cuts to keep the style looking new. If you opt for a razored layer bob you can simply let your hair grow out and it will keep looking great.

If you are aiming for a style that will make you look younger, you should always choose a longer style over a shorter one. Shorter hairstyles can look fun and fresh but you will need to take time to style them in order for them to look sleek. Choose a style that is past your shoulders and layered. You can wear it down with a natural curly or wavy texture and it will instantly pull your look together.

If you like wearing bangs try choosing a style that is all one length and has straight, blunt bangs. You can wear this style super long or as short as your chin and the sleek texture will keep you looking youthful. Most mature styles fall flat because of their wispy texture, but a straighter style with bangs will still frame your face while looking age-appropriate.
