At any age, it is possible to maintain a youthful appearance and face-framing haircuts draw the eyes to the best facial features. Here are four hairstyles women over 40 should consider if they want to take a few years off.
Pixie cut with side-swept fringe
Short haircuts are a classic way to highlight the eyes and cheekbones, and Ghanima Abdullah, hair expert and cosmetologist at The Right Hairstyles and suggests modernising the style with a side-sweeping fringe.
The hair expert explained: “Ever seen a pixie cut where the bangs steal all the attention? This is what you’re after: long, side-swept bangs.”
The rest of the hair should be “piece-y and angled” and the cut should “swirl around your head to hide any hair loss”.
For those that want to create extra volume, ask a hairdresser for extra layers.
Ghanima added: “Generally, pixies that add volume are cut very short in the back, a little long around the ears and long up top.”
It’s also advisable to take a few images of the cut you’re thinking of to the salon, to see what’s possible and what will look best on you.
As for how the hairstyle can be recreated out of the hairdresser’s chair, a pixie cut is easy to maintain and manage.

No matter the length of your hair – long or short – adding a fringe can “instantly promote symmetry and take years off”.
Ghanima said curtain bangs “flatter just about any face at any age” as well as “neatly framing the face while drawing attention away from serious ageing signs”.
Curtain bangs are a type of fringe cut that creates a soft, natural-looking wave at the top of the head and “give a youthful appearance”.
The hair expert said they “look great on mature women” as they make the face appear “smaller and slimmer” when they stop near the cheekbone.
For those with long hair, curtain bangs are an instant way to create more volume, interest and movement.
Ghanima said: “Curtain bangs are always flirtatious if you’re looking to rejuvenate your look over 50.”
Usually, curtain bangs are worn when the hair is down, but are great for framing the face should you want to wear your hair up.
