Fabulous Hairstyles For Fabulous Forty Plus Woman
There does not have to be a big difference when it comes to hairstyles for mature women and the up-to-the-minute hairstyles that are constantly sweeping the fashion and celebrity world. No matter what age you are you can continue to pull off the trends of the year, perhaps in a more elegant and graceful way.
The most important thing to note is that there is no reason to cut you hair short in the way that many older women resort to when there are so many different and fabulous styles available today! There is nothing wrong with a maturing woman wearing a longer style as long as it does have “style”. Growing your hair long to wear it in a ponytail or long and lifeless without a great cut and colour does literally nothing for you, except make you look older than you actually are.
By choosing the appropriate hairstyle for yourself you will find that you not only look much younger, but you feel younger as well.
There are though certain hairstyles which can flatter your age more than others.
One of the most elegant hairstyles of the fashion world today is the long hair with the waves and the curls at the bottom of the hair, which allows your hair to gather at the bottom with beautiful curling or loose waves and creates a fabulous look for any occasion. This style is simple to maintain as all it takes is a sizeable barrelled curling iron and some textured hairspray to make this look work, and stay, for the entire day or night. You will see that many actresses over the age of 40 are wearing their hair in this style and they look nothing less than stunning!
The short and layered hairstyle is another look that can be incredibly flattering for a woman over the age of 40. By having your hair cut anywhere between just below your ears and just above the shoulders (the traditional “bob” length), with many layers, you can achieve the ever so popular straight and elegant look often worn by Katie Holmes, as well as the textured look that can create volume as well as definition. The stylish side swept bangs look great with this hairstyle and are easy to maintain. What can take a little bit of time is the texturising of your hair, whether you are looking for a subtle amount of definition or looking to create the cute and sexy flipped out look.
Hair care can become very important when you reach the age of 40 years old or older. Many women hate to admit it, but they often experience a little bit of hair loss or thinning, and some hairstyles do not compliment this type of hair problem. For thinning hair, layers may not be a great option as it may only make your hair look thinner instead of thicker. No matter what your hair length is, there are a few simple tips you can use in order to make your hair appear thicker so this never becomes a problem you can’t handle.
