From short cropped hairstyles - perfect for fine hair - to long, youthful hairstyles for anyone who's not ready to cut off all their locks, we have the best hairstyles for over 50s. And whether you want to embrace (and show off!) your greys, or want to find a new flattering shade, we’ve got all the hair colour inspiration you need to take your style to the next level.
We also have expert tips on how to make your hair look thicker, which hairstyle to choose for easy, everyday styling and which hairstyles will make you look younger in an instant.
The key to flattering hairstyles for over 50s is to create a look that doesn’t require too much product, like mousse or hairspray, that will result in a stiff ‘do. Instead, we’ve selected a variety of looks that work best with different hair lengths and textures, meaning that they’re easy to maintain and very natural looking.
So remember - these are just for inspiration! You can tailor them to suit you, whether it's the colour, a hint of layering, a fringe or the overall style, take your favourite hairstyles to the salon and create a look that's perfect for you.
Here, loose curls instantly create the illusion of thicker locks while the barely-there highlights near the face are very flattering and create a lovely sheen to this mid-length brunette style. A slight side-parting is another way to add more volume to your look, while long layers are great for showing off those curls.
