Hairstyles for Women Over 40 M2 Salon NC

Hairstyles for Women Over 40 M2 Salon NC-Okay Oprah may have declared that 40 is the new 30, but with the right hairstyle who needs Oprah?


Women in their 40s and 50s are sexy, self-assured, and at the top of their game. Why go back? Whether you’re looking for a dramatic change or just want to keep your hair long and lush, check out this list of flattering cuts.

CHOPPY BOB – This style elongates the neck and is especially flattering on heart-shaped or oval faces. Ask for a bob with movement and to do the cut on dry hair. Margy Finegan Sheppard at M2 Salon in Morrisville, NC says “It’s like a bonsai-tree-type haircut—you have to keep working at it. If it’s too layered, it’s going to become aging.”

WAVY BOB -Think Halle Berry chin-length bob. (Can you believe she’s 49?) The soft bangs, rumpled texture, and imperfect ends. The bangs give the illusion of fuller volume at the roots (no back-combing required!) and draw attention to your eyes.

LAYERED BOB – This classic style is the perfect choice for women who want to look chic without a lot of maintenance. “Almost any hair texture or face shape can carry a bob,” says hairstylist Margy Finegan Sheppard at M2 Salon in Morrisville, NC, “though tight curls may need a bit more layering, and those with round faces should opt for longer versions. Chin-length bobs are ideal for petite and angular face shapes.” If you want an edgier look, ask for shorter layers in the back and longer ones toward the front.

Margy also offers this advice. “With any bob don’t be afraid to tuck your hair behind your ear and make it look asymmetric. It softens your collarbone and emphasizes your décolletage!”
