Hairstyles for women with long hair – in their 40s

February 14, 2018 — by MCutts0

While it is the norm for women over 40 to have short hair, there are still many stylish ways you can make your hair long. An important issue to consider with long hair is the time it takes to style it. Make sure it fits your schedule.

Wavy or curly

Wavy or slightly curly, long hair gives a natural look. It looks like you just got off the beach. This is a fresh, clean, young style that women over 40 years of age like. Bernadette Peters is a good example of someone over 40 who has beautiful, long curly hair and leaves it free. Sarah Jessica Parker, as Carrie Bradshaw in "Sex in the city", effortlessly has long, wavy hair. That natural look works for many women who are 40 years of age or older; However, make sure it doesn’t look messy. There is a fine line between naturally wavy hair and messy wavy hair.


If you want to have long wavy, curly or straight hair, you should consider a perm. While permed hair is less common than it was in the 80s, it is still permed. This works for curly and wavy hair. If you want straight hair, you have to go through a process called chemical straightening. Keep in mind that these processes can wear out over time, but once completed, they cannot be reversed or reversed.

If you like hairstyle and hair length but feel like you need a little change, include bangs in your hairstyle. Adding bangs to a long hairstyle makes it look young, fresh, and sometimes edgy. No matter what type of long hair you have, you can use side-swept bangs for a subtle difference, or bangs right over your forehead for an edgy look.


The choice of color is difficult for long hair in women over 40. Always consult your hairdresser because your hair can be too dry or brittle for some procedures. Long blonde hair is a young hairstyle, so you should choose a darker color. It doesn’t have to be dark, but at least be light brown. However, if you have many gray Hair, they may be more difficult to dye too dark. Also, you shouldn’t choose a color that will make your hair appear thin.


Women over 40 may experience hair loss or graying, so extensions are one way to fix this. Have extensions woven into your hair for thicker, longer hair. As you get older, your hair may not grow as it did before, so extensions are a good option to get them back to the desired volume. The extensions can help you get the cut you want. For example, if you want layered hair and your hair is long enough but too thin, with extensions, this hairstyle allows you to do so.
