Once a woman reaches her 50s, she tends to know who she is. This is also the perfect time to explore a fresh look, starting with a new hairstyle. Forget the old adage that women need to act or look their age. Choose a cut and length that you love, one that flatters your face shape. Think of short hairstyles as rejuvenating and anti-aging. The right one can even be super easy to maintain. Add layers if you want more volume. Change the color for a dramatic touch-up. There are no rules when it comes to trying out snazzy new styles.


1. Layered bobs

A jaw-length, layered bob adds texture and is perfect for oval, square, or heart-shaped faces. Varying lengths increase dimension and volume. Add side-swept bangs for additional sass.
