Choosing a single hairstyle is already challenging as it is, but I went ahead to compile 20. I hope you find them all adorable, just as I did.

1. Creamy Blonde Layered Bob

This bob starts just below the chin and extends over to the back of the head. It does look somewhat rough, very much like a Pixie Bob, but its layers are not as thick. It’s a perfect choice if you need something short, light, and simple.

2. Summer Blonde Layered Bob

This bob looks a lot like the preceding idea, but the hair here is lengthier at the back than it is at the front, before stopping at the chin. It looks incredibly amazing style on the model, and it should look similar on women above 50 who fancy thicker bob styles. You can check out my list of long hairstyles for older women if you were hoping to see longer hairstyles.

3. Bright Blonde Layered Bob

There’s not much going on with this blonde bob, making it a nice choice for ladies who want their outfits to take center stage. The edges of the nape are short and follow through to the front, ending just below the chin for a characteristic amazing look.

4. Layered Bob with Highlight

Here’s something different; a blonde bob for ladies looking for something that’s a little longer. Its bronze-like hair color is an elegant choice for ladies in their 50s with a knack for bob hairstyles. With the bob having layers that extend over parts of the forehead, it qualifies as a layered bang bob.

5. Dark Hair Layered Bob

Now here’s a different hair color rocking a layered bob in its full glory. Not only does this prove this haircut is perfect for ladies with any hair color,  the sleek look also subtly proves just how better a layered bob looks on dark hair compared to blonde.

6. Gray Layered Bob Haircut

Getting your layered bob in gray will definitely make you appear somewhat older, no thanks to the color. Still, it remains a great choice for fashionable ladies who don’t want to lose their mature appearance. The slight parting it’s rocking at the font leaves the front edges hanging just above the chin, giving off an air of style.

7. Neck-Length Layered Bob

Here’s a bob hairdo if you like hairstyles that extend to touch the shoulder. This grey bob hairstyle elegantly stops at the chin while extending through the back to the shoulders. This style is one of my favorites for it’s length and how it balances between maturity and sleekness with its unique color.

8. Face Framed Layered Bob Haircut

Back to darker hair colors; this hairdo is an excellent pick for ladies with chubby chins. Its edges curl inwards, allowing the overall style to fit in the face perfectly. From the back, the edges appear well-trimmed, curling towards the front to give that covered bob style.

9. Inverted Layered Bob

This inverted bob already looks great, but what’s even better is that you don’t need to be a rockstar to rock this hairstyle. If you’re ever thinking of a hairdo that’ll capture the room’s attention, this should be one of your top picks. The wavy bob side extends just below the chin, with the other end extending to the shoulders for a cute yet dimensional look.

10. Short Layered Textured

Having short hair limits you to a few possible style, but that doesn’t mean there are no excellent styles to pick from. This hairstyle is one great example for ladies needing something simple to handle without compromising there beauty. Unlike most bobs, your cheek gets some breathing room and you don’t constantly have to deal with hair from your forehead dropping to cover your eyes.

Its short length with the graduated thin layers ensures there’s enough hair on the scalp without you shaking your head all the time. Easily the perfect choice for grannies who’d rather not be excluded from contemporary fashion.

18. Layered Bob for Curly-Wavy Hair

From texture to color, there’s clearly a lot going on with this bob. The voluminous look isn’t the main attraction, but the shaggy look, which is pretty rare among ladies over 50. The gray-brunette color combination is also a perfect fit for any lady.

At the back, the hair stops just before the nape and extends forward to end just below the chin and on the sides.
