Modern Shaggy Hairstyles for Women Over 50 with Fine Hair
A shaggy hairstyle for fine hair over 50 is a layered haircut with piece-y, textured ends. Nothing says “youthful” better than this hairstyle’s trendy and modern vibe! Plus, its volumizing powers bring life to the hair and its wearer, making it the best option.
Aside from the convenience it offers, this cut cancels out wrinkles on your face with its soft finish. That’s why you see Emma Thompson and Halle Berry wearing it all year round!
Professional hairdresser Trey Gillen from Texas dished the 411 on the shag. He tells us that “length is important. I think shags look best in the shoulder to mid-neck area but can be longer or shorter. Modern shags are square-shaped and more layered in the back. They tend to have less aggressive layering around the face. That gives you a soft feel with a great framing around your face!”
This master hairstylist always asks what his client’s natural texture is. That’s because, according to him, if there’s any type of wave in their texture then a shag will work well for them. “Pin-straight hair isn’t the ideal hair type for a shag. It could end up looking like a choppy long layer,” he adds.
One of the top reasons why shaggy is your best option? “Shags help your haircut last longer because of the shorter layers. They work either styled or air-dried. Tousled hair is in, so the shag is a pretty fail-safe choice! Also, shags are great to wash and wear or style out, so it’s versatile for many lifestyles,” says Trey.
Be prepared for a lot of movement and body in your new shaggy style. Your hair will have lots of potential for volume and sassy sex appeal! For Trey’s recommended products, Sachajuan’s Ocean Mist is on top of his list. “It will give you flips and twists in your hair that will last and not fall flat. Sachajuan’s Hair Powder is great too. It maintains your tousled look throughout the day.”
