Eyeglasses shouldn’t just be a necessity for prime ladies and a stylish fashion accessory!

First things first – check your face shape!  All aspects of your hairstyle should depend on it – from the bangs and parting style to the length – the primary goal is to find the perfect match for your face and lifestyle.

Another tip to appear younger with spectacles is to pair your haircut with fitting hair color, of course, considering your specs! Take inspiration from how Helen Mirren, Meryl Streep, Salma Hayek, and Viola Davis sprightly strut on the red carpet with matching hairstyles and glasses!

You’ll confidently believe that age is truly just a number and won’t ever limit your styling options! No matter how long your desired hair is – short, medium-length, super long – there’s undoubtedly a perfect way to look lovely with your eyewear.

Show everyone how full of life you are with an adorable hairstyle! Choose from these super trendy hairstyles for women over 50 with glasses!

#3: Nicely Shaped Bob Cut with No Bangs

Are you a woman over 50 who wears glasses and considering a new haircut? A nicely shaped bob cut with no bangs could perfectly fit you. This classic cut is easy to maintain and can be customized to suit your face shape and lifestyle. It’s also versatile in terms of styling. You can wear it sleek and polished or add texture for a more relaxed vibe. One important thing to remember is to consider the length. It should hit at or just below the jawline to flatter your features and balance out your glasses. Invest in styling products like a finishing spray to hold your style all day.

#5: Dark Auburn Sweeping Bob

Ask for a dark auburn sweeping bob. Try a deep side part with swept bangs to show off your face shape and glasses. As long as you cut the fringe short enough to frame your eyes, you won’t have to worry about it getting in the way of glasses. The best cut is an asymmetrical bob for this swept-over style.

#6: Shoulder-Length Cut with Feathered Layers and Bangs

Soften your appearance in a shoulder-length cut with feathered layers and bangs. Bringing your length up to your shoulders will give your hairstyle more volume. Adding medium layers is great for women wanting feminine and flowing locks. Bangs can hide a multitude of sins, including fine lines. Try blowing out your hair with Redken’s Style + Protect Instant Levitation Mist and a medium round brush. Lift the roots as you go, and you’ll achieve a softly voluminous finish.

#7: Choppy Pixie Quiff

Here’s a choppy pixie quiff. For a round face and glasses, having more height through the fringe will change your face shape. It will give you a more oval appearance. Style with a curling iron to give extra body and lift to your hair. For finer textures, finish with O&M Original Queenie Firm Hold Hair Spray for a light hold and fewer chemicals.

#8: Headband Updo with a Curtain Fringe

A headband updo with a curtain fringe is a fun and youthful way to incorporate hairstyles over 50. I recommend doing a longer curtain bang that will flatter your face shape. For example, this style is long enough to hit the cheekbones. But the center of the bang is short enough to highlight the eyes. Adding a cute hairpiece like a headband will give your look the extra pizazz it needs.

#9: Medium-Length Layered Cut with Defined Curls

Medium-length layers with curls are a nice way to add dimension to your natural texture. With this haircut, it’s important to note the layers are soft and cohesive. The top of this shape has soft volume. However, the length is preserved on the ends. I recommend cutting most curly hair shapes dry to cut the appropriate length.

#10: Sleek Long Hair with Long Bangs and Face Frame

Ask for a sleek, long hairstyle with long face-framing bangs. Try a straight hairstyle with face-framing pieces for a chic look on aging women. They will help to accentuate your features. Glasses for your face shape will help bring out your style, and long bangs can be swept to the side of them easily.

A gray mini bob with eye-length bangs is a cute style for ladies over 50. A short cut can be a game-changer as you age. It can be easier to style at home and give you a little more body as your hair texture and density change. Try a bob around chin-length to elongate your neck area for a great illusionary effect.

A side-swept long pixie hair cut is eye-catching and chic. This is a great shape for girls with glasses or those wanting to highlight their facial features. Short hairstyles for women over 50 can still be very stylish and chic. Stay away from rounded shapes, and keep the pixie soft and angular.

#13: Brunette Lob with Warm Blonde Highlights

Try the chic shape of a brunette lob with warm blonde highlights. I recommend a lob with highlights if you want to make your fine thin hair the best. The minimal amount of layers in the haircut will make it appear thicker. And highlights are a great way to add texture to your fine strands. Simple but elegant, you can see why this shape is very popular. You’ll want to use a volumizer such as Pureology’s Style + Protect Instant Levitation Mist. And you might want to skip the round brush when drying and use your hands to maintain all the body your hair might have.

#14: Long Silver Hair with Side Part and Lots of Layering

Try a long layered silver cut with a side part. For older women who want long hair, opt for a side part that will give your hair body. This suits oval and long face shapes well. It adds width around the chin to create balance on more narrow chin shapes. Blow dry with a round brush twisting towards the ends. It will help to create a bend, and use Set Spray by Cult + King for heat protection and light hold.

#16: 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 is 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 much time to get ready in the morning, but it requires more frequent visits to the salon to maintain.

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

Try a shoulder-length cut with a subtle side part to make curls jump. 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.

Opt for a timeless pixie cut made a little softer. The trend for pixie cuts is the shaved sides, but I would ask your stylist for some softness around the edges. The best part is the super short and heavy fringe! This looks great for women with glasses and fun frames.

Make sure you learn all the ways you can style it. It’s pretty texturized so you can get away with minimal styling tools and products. If you want to play with your style, you should learn all the options! It’s a quick style for active women over 50 who want to look trendy no matter their age.

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 strongly contrasts her glasses and 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.

#34: 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. In contemporary American culture, women with short hair are 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. It would be best if you were 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 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.
