Age is a question of mind over matter, if you do not mind, it does not matter. Satchel Paige - Inspirational old age quote - a beautiful older woman with short hair

Being over the certain age doesn’t mean you must choose a specific style, cut your hair short, perm your hair, or dye your grays. It does not mean you have to stop doing something you liked before. An age is just a number. At this age more than ever it is important to be yourself, do and wear what makes you happy, not what others think you have to be doing. You can have any hairstyle that suits your personality.

Simplify Your Haircut

Here is a good stylist’s recommendation to look more classy and youthful no matter what is your age – simplify your hairstyle. Give preference to clean haircuts and soft lines. Keep your locks off your face. And choose softer hair shades.

Bangs and Fringes 

Bangs and fringes often make a woman look younger. If you are used to wearing them, there is no reason to give up on them now. Keep your bangs a bit longer, well reaching your brows. Trim them every 2-4 weeks. Often a hairdresser who cuts your hair will trim your bangs in between cuts without charging you.  Avoid short dense bangs above brown, as well as very straight, well-defined bangs.  Feather them down for a softened look.
