Avoid 50 long hair
If they are fine and rough on the ends, the long hair gives an old look to the face and considerably tired the features.
This is why it is advisable to wear them a little shorter, to give a nice fall to the lengths and boost their volume in roots.
The ideal: opt for a long or medium square, two very elegant haircuts over fifty.
After 50 years, avoid structured cuts
Square balls, straight bangs, plunging squares and other highly structured haircuts are not recommended after the age of fifty. Their graphic-side will tend to harden the lines. To bring softness to the face, favor cuts with soft and refined lines, such as a long square, a wavy square, or an airy mid-long.
Do not hesitate to subtly degrade the wicks of the face contour so that they more easily fit the oval and bring more softness to the cut.
After 50 years, avoid degradations
They tend to thin the hair lengthwise and make it lose mass. Choose solid and dense cuts that will allow you to display a nice volume. If you want to give more movement to your cut, structure only the locks around the face to create a slightly shorter lock that will dress your forehead and temples.
Do not hesitate to work your hair with a round brush and a hairdryer to enhance its movement and give it more volume.
