Hairstyles for a 40-Year-Old

Being fabulous and 40 can start with a great hairstyle. Mature, professional women are now turning towards more sophisticated, yet fashionable hairstyles that define their facial features in a flattering way. Be sure to stay away from any style that involves tight curls or colour shades three to four shades darker than your natural hue. Tight curls and darker hair colour brings out fine lines and creases around the face.

Deconstructed Long Shag

This shag cut is deconstructed, which means it the layers are cut with less definition so that you can wear it a number of ways. If you have longer hair, then you should try a deconstructed shag shoulder-length, and add on some fringy fringe and angles to give your face a nice frame.

Modified Undercut

This is a versatile cut that is shorter underneath and long on top. This works well with thick hair because it thins it out, making it more manageable for you. You can opt for a short, medium or long version of this cut, depending on what length works best with your facial shape.

Slanted Bob

Think Victoria Beckham or Anna Wintour. This cut is shorter in the back and longer in the front. From the side, it appears as though there is a distinct angle downwards from the back of the head to the chin. This is a mature and professional cut that is easy to maintain and style with a few simple tools such as a flat iron and medium-barrel curling iron.
