Finding an age appropriate haircut has never been easy and finding an age-appropriate haircut that doesn't make you look older than you are is even more difficult. Whether you are in your 40s, 50s, or 60s, the right haircut can do wonders for looking younger.

Headline after headline declares 40 is the new 20, but we respectfully disagree. Women in their 40s 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, we've got the best cuts for you.


If you are in your 50's, our favorite cuts happen to be cuts you'd want at any age (with a few strategic tweaks here and there). We promise, there's not a single matronly style in the bunch. Finally, your sixties doesn't have to mean it's time to settle for "grandmother" hair. (Unless of course your grandmother happens to be Isabella Rossellini).

Check out all of our favorite (and highly recommended) cuts for any age!
