As you age, everything begins to change. The haircut that defined your style is now too juvenile or outdated. Clothes and prints that you found yourself previously attracted to are now too loud or gaudy. The same goes with makeup and just about everything else. These are classic hairstyle ideas and tips that will help you look even more fabulous, regardless of your age! Check out these 15 flattering haircuts for older women:
1. Halle Berry’s Pixie
We had to start th
is list off with the beautiful Halle Berry and her now-signature pixie haircut! Halle’s been through a lot of hairstyles, but this is one that’s lasted through the years and we can see why! It’s a no-fuss haircut that looks great whether you’ve styled it or just rolled out of bed.

2. Charlize Theron’s Chops
Okay, so yes, Charlize Theron looks beautiful regardless of her haircut. (I mean, she’s bald in Mad Max and still manages to blow us away.) This is a different take on Halle’s pixie in that it’s parted to the side, giving it a more “done up” look that’s great for formal occasions or business meetings.

3. Heidi Klum’s Layers

To the general public, this would be an unusual haircut for older women. But the general public still operates under the belief that everything about you has to change just because your age is. With a haircut like this, Heidi kepts her youthful attitude and playfulness, but still makes it look “age-appropriate.” The layers are perfect and not too crazy, and the bangs lend a youthful, edgy look. You better believe this is the hairstyle we’re going to be rocking!

4. Lena Headey’s In Between

Actress Lena Headey is known for playing Queen Cersei in “Game of Thrones,” (but we’re sure you already knew that). In the show, she’s wearing a long, blonde wig, but in real life, Lena rocks a great short haircut for older women. This is the perfect idea for ladies who aren’t necessarily into the pixie cut, but still want some length and style. Side-swept bangs are perfect for this length, as fringe bangs can make your head appear block-ish. (At least, that’s what has happened in our experiences!)

If there’s anyone that (falsely) believes older women can’t rock long, voluminous hair, they must have never seen Julianne Moore. Julianne Moore wears long hair perfectly in a way that’s age-appropriate, yet confident and sexy. We love how she embraces her femininity and individuality, and we encourage you lovely ladies to do the same!

6. Jodie Foster’s Bob

If you have fine or thinning hair, the bob might just be the next hairstyle for you. This is a classic look that works well with fine or thinning hair, as full or thick hair can result in a bob that ends up looking like a giant, untrimmed bush. Basically, thick hair isn’t the best for this haircut. When going for the bob, you have the option of either parting it in the middle, like Jodie, or to the side. We’re personally fans of the bob and side-swept bangs look.
