Hairstyle 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.

Tips for Hair Highlights

Nothing ruins a perfect look like bad highlights. On a positive note, you can avoid this problem by finding a good stylist. When you find a stylist that you trust, consider these 5 tips for your next visit to the salon:

1. Enhance Your Natural Hair Color

Brunettes and darker hair color look best when lighter strands of hair are added to the highlights. Ask your stylist to add a touch of lighter color to your hair before it is washed. This technique will bring out your natural hair color as well as give it some volume.

2. Avoid Highlights in Shorter Areas

You can get highlights if you have short hair, but it must be done correctly. Let your hairstylist know that you only want highlights in the longer parts of your hair. If your hair is long toward the front, that is the area to add color. Adding highlights to the shorter parts of your hair can make it look like it has stripes.

3. Don’t Overdo It

Overdoing your hair highlights is a bad idea and it’s completely unnecessary. In fact, all you have to do to maintain your highlights is get a quick touch up every four to eight weeks.

4. Ask for Alternatives

If you are thinking about getting highlights but you are not quite ready, ask your stylist for alternatives. A color rinse, for example, can be done in a few minutes and costs way less than getting highlights for your hair.

5. Try Extensions

Extensions are another option for those who want a non-permanent alternative to highlights. The good thing about extensions is that you can accessorize with them. One day you might be in the mood for loud, bright colors and the next day you may want to go for a more natural look.
