12 Hairstyles for Women over 40

The perfect cut can bring out your best facial features and at the same time make you look and feel younger. If you are in your forties, you are not limited to certain hairstyles. You can go for classic and timeless haircuts or flattering cropped hairstyles.

  • A short wavy hairstyle is perfect for almost any woman who would like to try something different. It is a sophisticated cut with level layers and can suit almost any face shape.
  • Hair pulled back in a bun is also perfect for women over 40. This hairstyle works well with long hair as it can be looped around itself or secured with a hair band to create a feminine and classic style.
  • A heavily layered cut and style with sexy waves that hit just below the collarbone add body to your hair and make you look youthful by creating flattering softness.
  • A shaggy bob is a short and sleek look that will soften the face instantly.
  • You might consider changing your hair color when you choose a shorter cropped style. A touch of added warmth will make you glow and lift your cheek bones.
  • Volume boosting layers look great whether straight or curly.
  • An off-center part is perfect for women who would like to hide skin imperfections. This hair style creates a swinging panel that covers the side of the face where there may be skin patches or spots.
  • The pony tail is a professional look for women in their 40s since it is both feminine and neat. The style is kept sophisticated by tying hair low on the nape of the neck.
  • Side-swept parted hairstyles on longer hair will give you that beautiful luxe look. If you have thin hair, a professional stylist can help you achieve luminous volume.
  • A short bobbed hairstyle with a fringe will draw attention to your best facial features. The fringe should be short to frame your face.
  • A long smooth style is perfect for showing off healthy locks.
  • A tousled texture is perfect for women with petite features as it helps achieve figure balancing fullness.
