It IS 100% possible to feel and look like the grown and sexy woman that you are while maintaining a stylish, youthful vibe.

And one of the simplest ways to do that is by switching up your hairstyle. You see, in your 40s, looking great is all about working with and enhancing what you already have. With the right cut and color, you can take years off your age and still feel like your most fabulous self.

Here are 5 hairstyle options guaranteed to put a spring in your step. Consult with your beautician to determine which choice is the most flattering for you!

Option #1: Chin-Length Bob

There’s nothing like a blunt cut to bring out your boldest self. The bob’s face-framing layers add dimension while accentuating your best features.

Plus, you’ll radiate the confidence that comes from trying something new.

Option #2: Beachy Wavy Long Hair

Channel your inner Baywatch babe with a layered cut that adds lift to areas that may be thinning (like your crown), and volume for an effortless, “I woke up like this” look.

Option #3: Curly Pixie Cut

Rock your curls proudly with a short pixie cut. Great for ladies with round faces, pixie cuts and curls go hand-in-hand to slim down your face and add texture. This is also a perfect option for anyone with thinning hair.

If your hair is super curly, try finger or wash-and-go waves – wear them styled for a sophisticated look or loose and natural for a playful touch.

Option #4: Ombre & Highlights

It’s amazing how a little bit of color gradient or enhancement can completely change how you look and feel. Highlights can make thinning hair look fuller, bring out undertones and even play up your features.

Whether your natural hair color is still holding on strong or you’re ready to rock the grey, an ombre hair color can give you a fresh, vibrant look.

Option #5: Wigs, Weaves & Extensions

Listen, sometimes you want to try something new without the permanency of cuts and color. As you get closer to your own personal half-time, try experimenting with wigs, weaves and extensions to innovate your hairstyle.

But remember, however you decide to wear your hair, know the world is your oyster and you are the pearl. You can still look fabulous, stylish and even youthful if that’s what your heart desires, by just changing up your hairstyle.
