Need to get ready quickly or maybe you’re looking for a new look for a Holiday dinner or party ~ this Rolled Up-do may be just the thing!
This chic but casual look is simple to create just follow the steps below.
1. Begin with a loose, low ponytail. 2. Part hair above the hair-tie. 3. Pull pony up and through into a topsy.
4. Repeat previous step into another topsy.
5. Use your index finger and wrap another topsy to create the roll.
6. Continue to roll until you run out of ponytail. 7. Fasten under the roll with bobby pins until it feels secure.
To achieve this look on shorter hair, skip step 4 and just wrap the topsy tail around your finger once, then use extra bobby pins to fasten any shorter pieces into the roll. If you have curly hair, follow the same steps – your final look will just be more tousled.

Here is a client whose color is sun faded & cut has grown out longer than she likes now. She came in asking for her color to look a dimensional, rich copper brown and her cut/style updated for Fall. Two different color formulas were used; one at the regrowth to lift and cover gray and one throughout the rest of the hair to deposit, tone & gloss. Bringing up her length helped her fine hair to look fuller and have style. Below are the before & afters.
Majority think the rule for the best haircuts for women over 50 is short. This was correct until the early 20th century, but now, there are no more rules. Let your hair grow or cut it very short; it is now all up to you and working with a creative and experienced hairstylist. One major factor to consider with any style is color (dimensional color preferably) usually within a shade or two of your natural color will help make you look more youthful!
A woman’s age will never have her stop wishing to be beautiful and stylish. Even if you are in your 50s, you are still interested in the last trends and styles. When most women get older, their hair does become thinner. This is the reason why many mature women prefer to cut their hair shorter and the medium haircuts for women over 50 with fine hair have become really popular. So to help you decide what you may want or need, I have gathered some haircuts and styles in various hair colors for women over 50, so you can get inspired!
Short and sexy – Some of the haircuts & styles for women over 50 are short; most everybody agrees but this is not a must. These haircuts are very sexy and have a lot of potential. Add asymmetrical layers, bangs, or choppy layers for interest. The pixie haircut has become even more of a favorite haircut for many women over 50 especially with fine hair. These haircuts don’t need much maintenance or time to style; they look great in the morning and can be styled seductively for evening.
Medium and classic – The layered bob with natural looking dimensional hair color is one of the best and most popular haircut styles for women over 50. Customized layering gives each woman an individual fresh and modern look. It works with many textures of hair, and suits most any face shape from jaw line to the shoulders. It can be styled fun & flirty to classy & elegant. Having a layered bob hairstyle means you will need to take care of your hair maintenance a little more – but this style is worth it!
Long and elegant – There are long haircuts for older women that will make you look really stylish, but you have to pay attention when choosing them. Haircuts & styles for women over 50 with long hair can give you a sophisticated look depending on the length of it. A long-layered or “Shag” haircut looks good on most all face shapes and works on most any hair texture. Adding dimensional highlighting and low-lights to a layered style gives it body, volume and interest. It can be worn down casual and wavy. Body waving your hair can give you a “beach” look or you can blow your hair out straight – but not stick straight (which can be aging!) You will need to take care of your hair more at home using a professional conditioner daily and hair mask every week.
