Hairstyles for Women Over 40

    • Your Hair in Your 40s

      Your mane goal: stylish, chic, and youthful -- without looking like you're trying to be 21 again, says Jenny Balding, Cutler/Redken styling and grooming expert. It's a prime time to experiment, not only to keep your look fresh, but also to accommodate the changes going on with your hair. "Like your skin, your hair changes over time," Balding says. Thanks to the natural aging process and general wear and tear on your strands (hello, heat damage), you may notice a difference in your hair's texture or density. Get healthier, younger-looking hair with any of these celeb-inspired cuts.

    • The Almost One-Length

      This sleek style is perfect for someone with fine hair, says Nunzio Saviano, a salon owner in New York City. Jennifer Connelly’s cut looks like it’s all one length, but there’s a little bit of layering throughout the bottom to keep it from looking too bulky, he says. To pull this off, the cool, collarbone length is key. “If you go shorter, it can look a little soccer mom,” he says

    • Long and Curly

      Minnie Driver’s curls never fall flat or look stringy -- and for that, she can credit her long, layered cut. “There are just the right amount of medium-to-long layers to enhance the vitality and bounce in her curls,” Balding says.

    • Layered Long Bob

      The FLOTUS' soft, layered, shoulder-length cut is extremely flattering. "It opens up and elongates her face," Saviano says. Ask your stylist for an above-the-shoulder cut with longer layers, especially around your face. "The shortest piece should be at cheekbone level," he says.

    • Long and Wavy

      Soft, bouncy, and long: the trifecta that is Angelina Jolie's hair. To steal her signature style, ask for long layers that are texturized at the ends to create flow and movement, Balding says.

    • Super Long

      Long, healthy-looking hair is one of Sofia Vergara’s best assets. You can pull this length off if you have medium-to-thick wavy or straight hair (fine strands will look too stringy). Ask for layers that start around the collarbone to get that naturally tousled look. 

    • The Best Bangs for Your Face Shape

      Looking to add bangs, but afraid it will look like your elementary school pictures? See how to get the best fringe for your face shape!

    • Long Shag

      When you have long hair, soft, texturized layers throughout the front look flattering and youthful -- as they do on Heidi Klum here, Balding says. Plus, you get an anti-aging volume boost at the crown. The finishing touch: A sideswept fringe (like Klum’s) blends in with the rest of the layers and really brings out your eyes, she adds. 

    • Soft Bangs

      Want to change up your look dramatically without sacrificing length? Cut your bangs. An eyebrow-skimming fringe makes you look younger and fresher (what forehead wrinkles?). "I call it bang-tox," Saviano says. Jennifer Garner's bangs are cut a little thicker on the sides, so they split in the middle -- a trick that prevents the bangs from looking too heavy or severe.

      An Edgy Pixie

      Saviano dubs Halle Berry’s look “the new pixie.” The top is longer -- not short and spikey anymore, he says. To get it: Ask to have the sides and back cropped close to your head with some slightly longer pieces on top that fall toward the face.

      Sleek Lob

      Jennifer Aniston's new (dark!), long bob has a "softly textured perimeter," Balding says. Taking the weight out of the ends creates the sleek, polished shape.

      Tousled Bob

      It's the chin-length bob with long layers, Saviano says of Cate Blanchett's cut. The shape helps coax out body and waves in the bottom half of the hair, leaving the top smooth, he says.
