Style doesn’t need to diminish with age! Here are some top hairstyles for women over 50 with glasses that are super popular!
Most women over fifty shy away from trying out different hairstyles.
There are so many different hairstyles that you can try with glasses on but people often stick to the same old ones.
When you are selecting a hairstyle, you should go for something that makes you look youthful.
Spectacles are a great way of sprucing up your looks. You can wear them even if you don’t have any eye issues since it helps in framing the face.
The shape of your glasses also plays a huge role while choosing the right hairstyle.
You obviously have to choose a pair of glasses that compliment your face shape. Also, you can experiment with various hair colors to find the right one for your face.
Certain hairstyles need a lot of maintenance and upkeep so you have to make sure that you have the time to care for them before choosing them.
In this article, we have curated some of the best hairstyles for women over 50 with glasses. Take a look!
Top Hairstyles For Women Over 50 With Glasses
Grey pixie cut
It is natural for the hair to start greying as we approach our 50’s. But a lot of people tend to cover their greys.
There is nothing wrong with choosing to flaunt your grey hair, in fact, it has become more of a style statement now.
If you are someone who wants to bare it all and flaunt your gorgeous greys, this pixie cut will work amazingly well.
Combine it with a dark-framed pair of glasses to create a very sharp look. This is also one of those looks that do not require much maintenance.
You can just use a styling tool or a mousse to set your hair.
Medium Length Shag
Soft waves give you a feminine and chic look so it is safe to say that these are perfect for women over 50.
Pair it with a good pair of glasses to create a neat look. This is one of my favorite medium-length haircuts because it hardly requires any upkeep.
You can also choose from a variety of frames because hairstyles can match most of the glasses.
Also, do try adding some fringes or bangs with this haircut to upgrade your look.
Grey Lob with long parted bangs
The long parted bangs are a great option for women who have a large forehead or are experiencing a receding hairline.
A receding hairline is a common phenomenon that happens as we age and the chunk of hair over your forehead helps in cleverly concealing it.
Pair it with some contrasting highlights to get a beautiful looking hairstyle.
This look will go with almost every type of glasses and will make you look more youthful.
Short hair with long bangs
If your aim is to look younger than your actual age, you should opt for this short hair and long bangs combination.
This look also helps in highlighting your facial features, especially your eyes.
So make sure that you choose the right type of frames that compliment your face and hair.
This haircut works best with muted pastel shades like powder blue, pink, etc. But you can always flaunt your greys to get an amazing look.
Razored pixie with blue highlights
There is a common misconception that colourful hair is only meant for young people.
But it looks as good on mature women who are over 50. You don’t really have to commit fully to the colours and get a global colour done.
You can simply add a pop of colour on your hair like the blue lowlights and streaks on this razored pixie.
This cut works best for people with straight hair and it requires very little upkeep. If you want a messy and funky look, you should go for this look.
Long pixie with white hair
People with natural greys can add a few tweaks on their hair colour to create a head-turning look.
A popular combination is silver highlights on grey hair. This helps in giving a lot of depth to your hair and takes away the boring monotonous shade.
People often shy away from maintaining grey hair because it makes them look older.
But if you pair it up with the right haircut, like the long pixie, it can make you look so much younger.
Chic super short haircut
If you are looking for a haircut that doesn’t require a lot of maintenance, this super short haircut is for you.

Short wavy hair
Natural-looking short beach waves is among the most feminine hairstyles ever.

Coloured shaggy bob
Who says funky colours are only for young people? If you are in the mood to experiment with your hair, you can definitely try out these funky shades.
It is not too loud so it is the right shade for people who usually shy away from such unique looks.
Short bob with thick hair
The short thick hair bob has been popularly worn by Vogue’s Editor in Chief Anna Wintour and she sure knows how to style.
This is a very sleek hairstyle that will suit almost everyone and it best works for people with straight hair. You can try out highlights on your hair to upgrade your look.
If you think that your hair is not thick enough to pull this look, simply use a volumizing spray to get that fullness.
An asymmetrical bob is a trendy hairstyle that women over 50 can try out.
In this look, one side of your hair partition would be slightly longer than the other side to give you an angular look.
It also comes with an uneven undercut. You can combine this haircut with a balayage or babylights to get a young and vibrant look.
Shorter cut for fine hair
Women with fine and thin hair often struggle to get some volume. One easy way to do it is by getting short layers on your short hair.
This creates a fuller look and adds more definition to your hair. This might also make your hair look messy and shagged which makes it even better.
Short bob with side cut
People with round faces or diamond-shaped faces can try out this short bob with a side cut.
You can easily style these looks and even curl your hair to get an edgy look. Add a few highlights to upgrade this haircut and hive some character to it.
Pixie with short sides and pompadour bangs
A pixie cut is very versatile and can be worn in a number of ways. This look gives an edgy vibe and makes you look so much younger.
The dramatic bangs can be easily achieved with a good blow dry and a lot of hair mousse.
Make sure you finish off with a holding spray so your hair remains intact. You can also experiment with the colour of the frames and your hair colour to get an, even more, edgier look.
The spiky cut works for all face shapes and gives you a beautiful look. If you are looking for a hairstyle that will accentuate your facial features, this cut will be a good option.

The main feature of this cut is that it is heavily textured. If you have fine and thin hair, you can use a texturising spray to get this look.
This is a very low maintenance hairstyle so it will not take too much of your time. But you have to trim it often to maintain the length.
This look is great for women who have a busy schedule since it doesn’t take a lot of time to groom your hair.
If you have silver hair, you can use a purple color depositing shampoo to maintain the vibrancy of your tresses.
Textured bob with feathered layers
If you have fine hair, the bob might fall flat on your head. This textured bob with feathered layers is a great option for people with fine hair.
It makes your hair look full and voluminous. The best part is the silver crown highlights that perfectly compliment the dark hair.
If you have started to make the transition from natural hair colour to grey hair, you can totally go for this look.
