Medium Length Hairstyles Over 50

Layered Bob with Gradually Growing Front Locks

Medium-length haircuts can instantly make you appear younger. A layered bob is an excellent way to keep shorter back strands short while gradually growing out longer front locks. Combining your bob with an exciting new hair color will instantly give your appearance a more youthful charm. Consider switching out for a warm blonde shade to complement the highlights already present in your locks.

Choppy Bob with Jagged Ends

Choppy bobs with jagged ends create an irresistibly chic casual style perfect for any special event or gathering. Heavy layering and side-parted fringe create plenty of cute texture that’s particularly flattering on women over 50 with oval or heart-shaped faces. This medium-length hairstyle boasts a stunning blonde hue that creates a natural glow around the front and is expertly balanced by framing layers that frame her soft features. To maintain an updated and flattering choppy style, ask your stylist to point-cut or razor the ends of your layered cut for freshness and release bulkiness.

Sleek Straight Cut

This shoulder-length look combines long layers with romantic side-swept bangs for a sweet yet seductive style. Ideal for women over 50 who seek natural yet polished looks, it works incredibly well when gray hair has begun growing out — don’t be ashamed to show it off! If you have substantial layers, try styling your choppy style into a low ponytail that ties it back. Add an elegant finishing touch by pairing it with a velvet bow or hairspray spritze for an evening out.

Tousled Blonde

An elegant medium-length haircut enhanced with long layers that reach the shoulders can add volume and lift to a medium-length cut, perfect for women looking to bring back fullness and shape to their locks. Request that your stylist create softly cascading strands and face-framing layers over your shoulders, creating an age-appropriate look suitable for women over 50. This style works exceptionally well when combined with an ashy blonde hue.

Ivy League Bob

An Ivy League bob is an elegant style that suits almost all facial structures and ages. Consult your stylist on side-swept fringe and loosely tousled top hair to achieve it.

Long Side Fringe

There’s something classic and timeless about a sleek bob that finishes just beneath the chin. This medium hairstyle provides face framing without being as noticeable as a pixie cut and looks stunning with any shade of blonde. A long side fringe on this bob is an easy and stylish way to add dimension and youthfulness to a mid-length hairstyle and also acts as an effective solution for thin locks as it fills in and softens their appearance. Women over 50 looking to maintain medium-length hair look great in large wavy coils with some added cream to tame the shape and prevent frizz.

Long Bangs

No matter their age, many mature women choose to cut their hair short after 50. There’s no harm in trying something new; shoulder-length cuts can look chic when executed correctly with bangs to add dimension and youthfulness to any facial structure. Request that your stylist cut and style your hair a few inches above the shoulders, with long side bangs that sweep to one side for a stunning, fashionable look that helps add volume and movement. This attractive hairstyle works exceptionally well on thin locks as it helps add volume.

Soft Curls

Your hairstylist can add soft and romantic details to your medium-length haircut with some face-framing highlights in silver, ash, or grey hues that create the illusion of fullness in your locks. When you have naturally curly hair, a modern beach wave perm can give it volume while remaining soft and pretty. This versatile style looks beautiful on all hair textures and is especially useful for older women wanting to cover up any signs of thinning hair or disguise a sagging jawline.

Long Layers

If your strands have begun to thin out, adding layers may be just what’s needed to make them appear fuller. Consult a stylist about getting a shoulder-length cut with long layers and adding balayage highlights for an additional pop of color. This style compliments every face shape perfectly, especially for women wearing glasses! Get beachy waves with this stunning gray style that looks just as youthful in blonde. The mid-length bob features long curtain bangs to give it its feminine aesthetic; complete your look by pairing it with a dainty headband!
