When you’re over 50, being stylish can get a bit tricky. While experimenting quirky hairstyles is fun, the wrong kind of hairstyle can add unwanted years to your persona. Hence this guide to choosing the best haircut for you.
Speaking of smart haircuts, it’s always best of you to choose a hairstyle that flatters your natural facial contours. By contours, I mean your face shape in general along with the placement of your cheekbones, nose, and eyes.
Here’s what you must consider while choosing a hairstyle
The shape of your face:
This plays a super important role in deciding how flattering your haircut looks on you. Hairstyles are meant to compliment and bring out the natural beauty in your God-gave face shape.
If you have a rounds face:
Go for sharp hairstyles as they add more edge and sharpness to your naturally soft jawline. Stay away from haircuts like flat bangs and plain bob cuts as they will only make your face appear rounder.
If you have a long or oval face with a sharp jawline:
the best option would be a feminine shoulder length layer cut with a beautiful U cut finish at the base. Other soft haircuts like a long side swept bangs and flat forehead bangs work wonders on this face type too.
If you have a sharp tapering jawline or have a small face:
Try adding some volume to your face with a pixie razor cut, long curls, crown cut bangs or even a simple U cut with short bangs.
How far apart your eyes are :
Trust me, this is very important. If you have very wide set or close-set eyes, be sure to ask your stylist to help in choosing a hairstyle that compliments this.
Now that we’ve seen what suits each face type the best, check out these professionally certified hairstyles that not only make you look glam but also a decade younger!.
