As you get older, your hair changes. From texture to colour, your hair will slowly start to get drier, thinner, and fade to grey. But these aren’t bad changes you should try to hide because there are many hairstyles out there for every hair length. Many women over 55 have short hair, and sometimes shorter hair can be difficult to style. Getting inspiration can be beneficial to help you freshen up your appearance.

Hairstyles have changed drastically over the years, from afros to pixie cuts. Unsurprisingly, some of these hairstyles are still in right now and are actually better for ageing hair because they’re easier to style. But, to make it easier for you, we found 20 of the most fashionable influencers that are over 55, to give you the ultimate hairstyle inspiration.
