One hairstyle that really is flattering for women who are of a certain age is the short layered hairstyles. Through going for a bob length cut that is made up of many different layers can help to create a more elegant look. Plus this particular style is great for adding texture which creates more volume.
With this particular style you can then go for side swept bangs which are proving very popular at the moment. These are not only easy to main but can provide definition to your face and accentuate your good points whilst hiding those that you would rather others did not see.
Although you may hear stories that women as they grow older should not have long hair this is simply not the case. However, if you do intend to grow yours long then it should never be worn straight as it can actually age you more quickly. Rather with this short of hairstyle it is important that you add so definition to it. The best way of achieving this is by adding waves or curls to the bottom of the hair
