1. Dark to light blonde
If you have long hair and are trying to distract from your extra curvy or round face, try a little by filling your mane with colorful waves. An off-center part will work with the texture to draw everyone’s eyes out and away from your face shape.
2. Layered Pixie
This before and after makeover takes short, dull hair from lifeless to full of texture. Whether you have a square face or a big forehead, a pixie with soft side bangs is a super cute option for a short haircut.
3. Side bangs for full bangs
The hair looks dry and desperate for shape in the before photo of a woman over 50 with a longer face shape. By thickening the bangs and blowing out short layers, we see a wavy texture come to life and a change in facial dimension.
4. Bulky to thin layers
For women with thick hair over 50, celebrate it with a shoulder-length haircut like the one seen in this before and after. Unwieldy curly hair is beautifully tamed into thin, layered locks.
5. Blonde to Pink Balayage
If you love color in your hair, you’ll definitely want to copy this super cute platinum blonde bob with pink highlights. It’s a perfect youth update for a woman in her 50s.
6. Blonde to brunette

Women over 50 who have long hair and are looking for a little more body and shape will do well with a bob haircut with bangs. Lots of short layers combined with a thin body will create fluffy locks that are nicely aired.

Another great hairstyle option for older women includes this poppin’ orange pixie. If the before and after makeover isn’t enough to inspire you to try a light shade in a fun haircut with gorgeous curls, we don’t know what is!
11. Long hair for a pixie
Very light blonde or platinum hair color is great for women over 50 with pale or light skin tones. If you have long hair, switching to a pixie with long straight bangs will make you almost unrecognizable (in a good way)!
12. Gray to black hair
For women with oval faces who see more white or gray hair and want to cover it up, take a cue from this pre- and post-makeover mood and add some extra black to your mane. Leave the hairline salt and pepper to define your face shape.

Going from bright and light to dark and mysterious is easy when you have at least two shades of beautiful red to work with. Turn the big chop into a pixie bob and give your mane a rich dark color treatment for a complete makeover.

Want to change your hair without much commitment? A cut will take you to it after shooting a wavy bob with lots of volume. Ask for a few layers that you can style in waves, and maybe even go for a light blonde color.
17. Gray waves to blonde straight
Pesky gray hairs are no match for blonde balayage. Long wavy hair changes in cut and color that make it smooth and warm. Women over 50 will love how their gray hairs blend seamlessly into the new shade.

When gray hairs start to peek through your roots, take it as an opportunity to do what it is before and after shows: a long, mostly smooth hairstyle with highlights in gorgeous whites and grays.
