#1: Shoulder-Length Curls with a Subtle Side Part

To make curls jump, try a shoulder-length cut with a subtle side part. Thinning out your hair may be necessary for curls to sit down instead of out to control unruly strands. A side part is softer and is less harsh than a middle part for a softer finish.

#2: Champagne Blonde Pixie

Consider a champagne blonde pixie if you want to brighten up your locks. To maintain a nice bright blonde you should use a purple toning shampoo at least once a week. Maintenance will feel easy if you have the right products. So ask your stylist what they recommend!

#3: Side-Swept Silver Bangs and Cut

A chin-length bob is a perfect haircut to accentuate your face, giving a more youthful look. The number one way to bring instant flair to a hairstyle is by adding a bang. Ask your stylist about a side-swept bang to see if it would fit your face shape. This particular style of bang is great if you have a wider forehead or are looking for extra volume.

Look stunning and natural with a long silver hairstyle. Having layers and angles around your face will prevent your face from dragging. And, it will give an instant lifted look. If you struggle with flat locks taking weight out at the crown will help lift to give your hair more body. Wear your hair with a slight wave to give your hair some texture and body.

#9: Younger-Looking Pixie Crop with Bangs

Pixie hairstyles for women over 50 with glasses look super cute! The real thrill comes from working your short chop! The soft side fringe falls on your face, which makes any 50-year-old woman’s eyes stand out, much like your glasses and their frames! Pixies are classic yet fun. The best thing about this haircut is that it can be customized to each person, and it’s fast and easy to style.

This look is perfect for fine hair that tends to lack volume. Use a mousse applied at the root on towel-dried hair, and after your hair has been dried, apply a light texturizing product or spray like Aveda Phomollient and Air Control hair spray. This cut is perfect for women who don’t have a lot of time to get ready in the morning, but it does require more frequent visits to the salon to maintain.

#17: Modern Very Short Spiky Pixie

Go for a heavily texturized crop haircut. Think about cutting out all of your old brunette permanent color. When your hair grows back, both embrace your natural silver color. The best thing about this 50-year-old woman’s haircut is how the texture is such a strong contrast to her glasses and purple frames. It brings attention to both! This is a great modern haircut to suit women who don’t want to be held back by their hair. The heavy texture requires minimum styling. However, this hairstyle with frames should be maintained every 5-6 weeks.

#18: Sophisticated Shoulder-Length Angled Bob

Just like her glasses and frames, this hairstyle is bold. A woman with short hair is perceived as confident – not having to hide anything. Women are always expected to have long hair and show their femininity, and in contemporary American culture, women with short hair are more often seen as less feminine but more professional. In truth, it radiates boldness – breaking the perception of women in society.

My name for it is an ashy angled bob. I texturized her ends for some movement to her hair. To pull off this haircut for women over 50 with glasses, you should be bold enough to chop inches off. You should be willing enough to have this haircut in the long run because growing your hair out is not a piece of cake. Also, consider your face shape. There are different types of short haircuts these days, and you just have to figure out which one fits your face shape and if you’re wearing glasses and frames. Women with oval-shaped faces can pull off any haircut.
