Full Answer

Women over the age of 50 often want haircuts that offer a stylish look without spending hours in front of the mirror and, like many other women, they get their ideas from celebrities. Below are a few easy care haircuts that some popular celebrity women over the age of 50 are wearing for inspiration.

Long curls

Dana Delany, Andie MacDowell and Madonna all kept their hair long and by adding a few soft curls the look remains stylish and requires only a few moments to pull off. With a 2-inch curling iron, curl strands away from the face.

Bob cuts

Diane Keaton's layered bob falls just below the jawline and includes short fringes around the face. To style, just use a round brush to flip ends of the hair away from the face while blow-drying. Helen Mirren went a little shorter with her bob cut and kept her bangs to soften her face. The lack of layering on the short cut gives an added effect of more body and a round brush while blow-drying helps add body and lift near the crown.

Shag cuts

Suzanne Somer's long shag adds volume to straight, thin hair and bangs can be left long and swept to the side or cut short. Jane Fonda went a little shorter with her shag for a modernized look, and choppy layers from front to back with shorter layers around the face create a stylish look. Molding gel helps create texture and flip the short layers away from the face for a great look.
