Haircuts That Take Off 10 Years
Skip the Botox and head to the salon
Just because you’re over age 40, it doesn't mean you have to succumb to the “mom bob.” In fact, that may actually make you look older. Need proof that age-appropriate can still look and feel youthful? Take a look at these eight haircuts.
The Pixie Cut
Jamie Lee Curtis keeps her pixie cut feminine by wearing it a little longer at the ears and wispy around the forehead.
The Chopped Bob
Remember Helen Mirren with long hair? Yeah, neither do we. She took a chance and looks ten times more youthful.
The Textured Lob
Diane Keaton’s lob is a great cut for fine or thinning hair. (Layering = movement + texture.) It's also the ultimate wash-and-go style.
The Long Layers
A layered, collar bone-length cut like Andie MacDowell's is great for curly hair and a sure antidote to the dreaded poof-ball that can occur if you go too short.
The Mod Bangs
If you’re gonna go for bangs, keep them slightly piece-y à la Ciara. It gives off an effortless feel.
The Shoulder-Grazing Layers
A side-swept bang and light layers work wonders for Witherspoon and keep her straight locks from falling limp.
The Sleek Lob
Super straight and angled in the front, this popular cut has been seen on everyone from Taraji P. Henson (above) to Olivia Newton-John.
The Modern Shag
Let’s be honest: We couldn’t do this list without including Jane Fonda. The woman looks phenomenal and her shag has everything to do with it.
