Sometimes it’s difficult to know how to style your hair once you are solidly into your adult years. Between chauffeuring kids around to sports and other after-school activities, cooking, cleaning, and caring for the family and house, and even working a full time career, it’s hard to balance all of that and maintain your beauty regimen at the same time.

If you ask hair experts how you should style your hair over the age of 40, they tell you that the best characteristics of a hairstyle are: chic, low maintenance, natural looking, sexy, sophisticated and edgy yet professional. In short, short hair works well for this lifestyle. Give credit to the stylists, since these hairstyles look amazing!

With that in mind, here are some of the short hairstyles we recommend for women over 40:

This photo is perfect for women with thinner hair. If you are quite scared that you may not be able to pull off a short hairstyle, then it is best that you start with this. The angled cut allows you to enjoy the look of a longer bob combined with the comfort of a shorter bob at the back portion.

Bonus tip: If you’re starting off with long hair, you can even donate your locks to a company that will make your hair into a wig for those in need. Win-win!
