After almost five decades, you’re probably pretty familiar with your hair, particularly if you’ve had the same hairdo since your twenties. Gracefully sliding into middle age may leave you terrified of winding up with old lady hair in place of the youthful styles you used to enjoy. Fret not—the end of an era doesn’t have to be the end of your hair. Short, thin, curly, whatever: it doesn’t matter what kind of hair you have, it’s what you do with it that keeps you looking young. Here are 30 hairstyles you should definitely insist on trying out, no matter how old you are.
The Pixie Cut
Pixie cuts can come in a variety of styles and lengths, but they’re all short with a relatively choppy look. Almost any shaped face can pull off a pixie cut, but they’re particularly stunning when they draw attention to a pair of gorgeous eyes in a heart-shaped face. Pixie cuts also pull attention away from long jawlines and soften wide foreheads. If you’re scared of a boyish-looking Pixie, soften the style by blow-drying the bangs to the side with a round brush. If you’re wanting something more modern, use products (pomades or waxes) to texturize the cut.
