Women of a certain age tend to face a set of rules around what they should and shouldn’t do with their hair.
Often, these rules involve endless colour treatments, and keeping our hair short and neat.
But rules are made to be broken—and these stylish celebrities are showing us exactly how it’s done.
From chic baby bangs to long silver waves and cool cropped bobs, these are the hairstyles that every 50-something (and older) woman needs to try.
Isabelle Hubert recently debuted a stylish new shag haircut at the Giorgio Armani’s Autumn/Winter 23/24 show in Milan.
With light strawberry blonde highlights and tousled, face framing curls, the 69-year-old French actress was the essence of cool.
The 55-year-old singer and former First Lady of France modelled a mid-length cut with some long-layers and cute undone bangs that fell just past her eye.
At 64-years-old, Angela Basset certainly proves that long hair isn’t just for the young.
Modelling short, straight bangs with glossy long locks, the actress oozed sophistication at Pre BAFTAs dinner in London last month.
Stepping out at Paris Fashion Week, Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu showed that she’s not afraid to embrace a messier texture.
With a face-framing mid-length cut and some loose wavy strands, 59-year-old actress looked just as chic as her Emily In Paris character.
Cate Blanchett’s blonde bouncy bob certainly brought the wow-factor to the 29th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) in February.
Blanchett wore her blonde hair styled into soft yet voluminous curls, which gave the 53-year-old actor an aura of old Hollywood glamour.
With her voluminous curls, Viola Davis’s cropped, side-parted bob stole the show—and we love the big gold hoops she wore with it.
At 77-years-old, Helen Mirren is the gold standard in proving that a blow out is perfection at any age. Stepping out at the Berlin premiere of her new film Golda, Mirren’s long silver strands were styled into soft loose waves, which was not only refreshing to see but breathtakingly beautiful as well.
51-year-old Sandra Oh modelled a bouncy ponytail and cute wispy bangs at the 11th Annual LACMA Art + Film Gala in Los Angeles.
We love seeing the Canadian-American actress embrace such a playful style (and completely rock it too).
Italian actress and model, Monica Belluci hasn’t shied away from curtain bangs with the 58-year-old actress modelling short, eye-length bangs with long dark layers—and we haven’t seen anyone wear the style better.
