Low Maintenance Haircuts for Women Over 50
1. Short Bob Haircut
You won’t argue with me when I say short haircuts can make you look younger. The lady here can attest to the fact. If you want to transition from long to short, you do not need to be scared. And don’t forget to check out low maintenance short haircuts for round faces.
2. Long Lob Haircut
Do you know that big hair doesn’t care? You probably need Dyson Airwrap to achieve a voluminous look, then finish the styling with hair spray. You might as well find better in my post on the best low maintenance haircuts for busy moms.
3. Bob Haircut for Straight Hair
Not even lockdown can stop you from looking beautiful. The coolest thing I love about Bob haircuts is that you can style it the way you want, depending on your hair type.
4. Layered Shoulder Length + Bangs Haircut
Nothing is sweet like having a cool and fresh haircut that fits in with your face, body shape and also makes you look younger. Just imagine yourself smiling.
5. Classy Pixie Cut
Now let’s go a bit shorter. Here we have the almighty and trendy pixie cut that has been making waves on Instagram and Pinterest. You need to see how people love my compilation of the best low maintenance pixie haircuts. and best pixie haircuts for fine thin hair and women over 50.
6. Shag Cut
If you ever thought that shag cut, also known as shaggy bob cut, is meant for younger ladies, then it’s time I clear that ideology. You can still feel the chic vibe as an older woman.
7. Thick Fine Hair Pixie Cut
Do you want to prove to people that age is just a number? Then this haircut got you covered. I strongly back you up on this. – A great haircut is worth more than half a dozen new dresses or a magnum of champagne.
8. Deva Cut for Older Women with Curly Hair
We all know and understand that curly hair naturally is not low maintenance type of hair. But that doesn’t mean you should get rid of your natural hair pattern. Some haircuts can help save you some time, and that’s when the Deva cut haircut comes into play.
9. Buzz Pixie Cut
What if I show you something shorter than the previous one? The vibe alone is really hot. This is the real; “age is nothing other than a number”. Aside from having that young chic vibe, this is also a cute low maintenance haircut. Feel free to also check out my post on trendy short haircuts for women over 40.
10. Layered Medium Lenght Haircut
No matter how much we justify a haircut as low maintenance, it will always boil down to conscious or subconscious preference. You will want to give this haircut a try if the layered cut is your thing.
11. Short Bob with Bangs Cut
The Bob haircut is a regular hairstyle for the majority of older and young women. You might be wondering why? Well, the answer is simple, Bob haircut generally saves you a lot of time.
12. Shoulder Length Haircut with Bangs
I understand the way I am showcasing the Bangs styles makes you think I am taking it personally. But it’s far from that; Bangs cut in style make your face appear full, which is what most women want.
13. Classic Bob Haircut
Just like the classy pixie cut I showed you earlier, I have to present another better alternative if you’re not a fan of Pixie haircuts. So here you have it, an elegant-looking Bob haircut you’ll love to recreate. If you want more inspiration, feel free to check out my post on layered bob hairstyles for women over 50.
14. Sculpted Curly Pixie
Deva cut is not the only haircut for women with curly hair. You can still rock the pixie in a curly way; you get the point now. Joke aside, this haircut is cool, in my opinion.
15. Long and Layered/Feathered Cut
This haircut requires minimal styling. But no matter how much I try to pamper the word “low maintenance,” it still boils down to preference and how well you understand your hair. These two things are what justifies a low maintenance haircut.
And that’s all I got for the best low maintenance haircuts for women over 50.

Yes! Finally an article on mature women’s hair styles that actually use beautiful real life mature women! Thank you. Great article with super photos that I actually want to take to my hairdressers! Thank you
Sadly as fab as these styles are there’s not ONE that my very fine blonde hair would style into 🤷♀️
Same, fine hair!
I know what you mean! I have fine starting to gray straight straight hair!
These styles don’t work for me either
Because the top falls all the time!
I have very fine hair also.
I find the Stacked Bob makes my hair look thick
It’s easy to style also
Try Redkin Powde Grip. Lifesaver
Very interesting!!! I wonder about the products you’ve tried, I wonder about your expectations. Over the yrs behind the chair, clients expect hair to do impossible things. I’d love to know more about your haircare. If my hair is too short it is flat, too long and it’s flat. You must find the cut best for all your needs
I feel your pain! Add living in Florida to the mix!
Same, I’m looking to go back to perms
How very intuitive you are!!!! Love it!!! My curly hair is almost to my waist & i really do not want to cut it. My husband loves it &, to be honest, sometimes a ponytail is all i can manage due to shoulder surgeries. Love Love Love the Deva but wondering if it will still work with longer hair. My hairdresser has decided to retire, and i am at a loss.
Congratulations on your achievement, and Best Wishes for a wonderful Career. You Rock, Cheers
Thanks for your kind words, I really appreciate them as it keeps me motivated to do more.
I can’t recall how many times I got roasted for not showing haircut inspiration for women with long hair. hahaha
And I think you should leave your hair long, Devacut does not work well with longer hair.
Do take care of yourself and rock on your long hair, because you have every reason to do so.
Catriona, my hair is long a curly too. I like a classic Andy McDowel long bob with layers. The layers give shape and allow it to be down without too much weight. When I want to go shorter I like the Madonna hair cut in like a prayer video- shorter layered shoulder-length bob. But Layers are the secret…I think.
I am 56 years old and have long straight fine hair. I wonder. How the curly style you show here would look on my hair?
Go to a store where they sell wigs and try one on to see if you like it!
Again….sadly for a lot of us “aging mature” women,our hair gets finer and thins out drastically. None of these styles would work or look good for us! Very pretty for a small handful of models tho.
Sorry these hair styles are not very flattering. Some older ladies can wear long hair, but most look fresher and younger with shorter styles.
The word would be Diva, not Deva
Wrong! Deva is a brand of products and hair dressers are actually deva certified to cut curly hair
Nope, it’s Deva. It’s a trademarked name for a curly hair cutting and styling method.
Deva is a cutting technique for curly hair
.I am over fifty and I have waist-length dark- blonde hair.
I wear my hair braided, curly, straight, up, down, messy bun and you name it!!!
I do not let age define how I should dress or wear my hair or how I think.
I must be comfortable and happy with myself first.
I’m the same with mid length almost salt and pepper with curls. I do what ever . Half up , messy top bun , two low buns .braids Down with wild curls .I prefer my bangs out of my face so I normally have them pinned back . But a hair style that suits you is the hairstyle you like.
That’s great, but I’ll bet your hair is medium to thick. Those of is with fine hair don’t have the option to wear it that way. I don’t want to let age define me, either, but I can’t pull off wsist length hair!
Good for you, Jane! I feel the same way too about my style of the day! Age is really irrelevant!
Many women of our age wear glasses and that’s a game changer too.
I was a beautician for 30 years. I’m 51. My hair is long and healthy. I want to know why so many people think it’s ok to push any female over 50 into cutting their hair off because they are a certain age?
In many cases. When your older short hair cuts lift your face. Makes you look younger. That’s why some women are willing to cut or wear their hair shorter.
