Haircuts have no age limit and anyone can wear their hair however they like, regardless of age. That said, it’s common for women over the age of 40 to opt for shoulder-length or short hairstyles, especially since hormonal imbalances contribute to changes in hair texture, color and growth. According to experts, those who want to stay youthful should avoid these three styles: Thick, blunt bangs, spiky pixies, and medium-length layerless lobs.
Avoid: Thick, blunt bangs
A thick, blunt fringe might look edgy and bold, but Ghanima Abdullah, hair expert and hairstylist at The Right Hairstyles, says it’s not meant to frame your face or accentuate your cheekbones. It draws attention to wrinkles and warns that it can age your face. .
Ganima has a thick, blunt fringe under his eyebrows, and the blunt hairstyle, whether long or short, can “emphasize any signs of age on the face.”
The sharp edges of the fringe don’t “compose the face well” and all the attention is forced on the eye area, with the crow’s feet and smile lines becoming the focal point.

Choose: pixie with side-swept fringes
A pixie cut is great for accentuating your “eyes and cheekbones,” but to prevent it from aging you, consider side-swept bangs, as they “steal all the attention.”
Alongside the “side-swept long bangs,” the rest of the style should be angled and in large sections.
This is also a great style to hide loose hair. Simply sweep the hair over the area you want to hide.
Talk to your stylist about the amount and placement of layers when you go to the salon, especially if you want more volume.
Avoid: Medium-length unlayered lobs
A lob, formerly known as a long bob, can look “flat and drab” if it’s one length.
Ganima points out how hair gets thinner as you get older, and if you style it long, it doesn’t affect it like it used to. To avoid this, consider shortening your haircut. “A lob, a neck area or a bob that falls over the shoulders softens the angles that appear on the face with age,” suggested the stylist.
Selected: Asymmetric lobs with layers
For those with long hair who don’t want to commit to short hair, a lob is the perfect compromise. Told.
Choose many textures that allow movement and swelling to ensure maximum effect.
