I'm looking for some flattering styles for women over 50. Many of the styles I've been finding online are showing models that are definitely not 50. I'd like to see some real world examples (on mature women, with wrinkles) of flattering cuts/styles.

Case in point: Martha Stewart's latest https://www.instagram.com/p/B5nouKAn...ource=ig_embed

I mean, I think I might like the haircut, but its so filtered and she's obviously had work done.

I would go more with works with your face shape and skin color than someone else's idea of how 'women over 50' should be wearing their hair.

This woman over 50 has the healthiest hair I've ever had in my entire life thanks so a life changing master stylist. My hair is thick, colored, halfway down my back, and red.

I agree with this. Women over 50 look all kinds of ways. I really dislike these lists of photographs of hairstyles for women over 50. We all didn't look alike at 25. So why now?

Let me guess - there will be five different types of bobs, some straight, others with the ubiquitous beachy waves. A few lobs. There will be three short hair styles and one will look like Jamie Lee Curtis. Half of the styles will be in grey, white and blond.

See a good stylist and get advice. Look on Pinterest and in magazines. Arrive with a few pictures - but remember, there are no rules.

I used to have that haircut about twenty years ago. It's nice enough.

Yeah, looks like Martha's got a face full of botox, or something.

Women over 50 have very different skin issues and hair issues than women in their 20s and 30s. Most of the images I see of women over 50 are so filtered that they are ridiculous. The hair styles that worked in my 20s just don't now.

I have been watching makeover guy on youtube and found him inspiring.

I love Makeover Guy. He's my go-to when I get frustrated with my hair. If he was in my neck of the woods I'd have been there already but don't want to travel that far for my hair. He's worked some real miracles.

I, too, get tired of the standard choices for women of a certain age. There's way more to us than just a number. I have a great stylist who makes the best out of my challenging hair but I still get annoyed with my mop on occasion. Someone's perceived idea of what I "should" do with it due to my calendar age won't get my business.

Just don't attempt styles for 20 year old ones. Please.

Yes. I get very tired of that.

I have to ask who is "The Makeover Guy"?

Victorian women kept their hair long, and looked fabulous with it. I supposed it depends on how thick one's hair still is, as one ages. Is that why so many women cut it short after 50?
