Calling all fine-haired females! With a helping hand from Eric Pfalzgraf, French Kérastase stylist, we’ve taken the hard work out of finding 3 gorgeous hairstyles for fine hair for over 50s. It’s never too late to find the style just for you! 


1. Short hair with a side swept fringe 

We love this easy-breezy short hairstyle for fine hair for over 50s. By pairing short hair with a longer fringe and a decadent chocolate color , it makes fine hair look fuller, to create a low-maintenance, stylish haircut. When it comes to recreating this look at home, Pfalzgraf has this to say: “The more you work fine hair during a blowdry, the thinner it can look. Equally, the less heat you apply to the hair, the more voluminous it looks." With that in mind, keep the heat tools usage to a minimum to get the most out of your hair!

2. Straight bob with middle parting 

One of our favorite looks is the bob hairstyle for fine hair for the over 50s. Elegant, easy to wear and simple to style, the bob works with any shade and can be worn with a middle or side parting, depending on your taste. A spritz of Kérastase Discipline Fluidissime Anti-Frizz Spray helps to keep your hair in place, and adds shine to your strands.

3. Shoulder-length hair with bangs

Another gorgeous look for mature women, this is one of our favorite medium-length hairstyles for fine hair over 50 - we love the classic combo of bangs with straight hair. One of the most important things to remember when it comes to caring for your fine hair is to make sure you’re treating your locks right. A big part of that is how your wash your hair. “Shampoo must be applied to your roots first, then, with your head down, work the strands starting at the nape of the neck, moving up to the top of the head,” explains Pfalzgraf. Try Kérastase Densifique Bain Densité Shampoo, a treatment designed especially for those with fine hair, to provide your hair with the volume you need.

All hair is beautiful - time to embrace your fine hair!
