If there’s anything we know definitively, it’s that it’s never too late to take a risk in the hair styling department and try something new. We also know that for guys who are looking for hairstyles for men over 50, it can be daunting trying to find trendy hairstyles that are age-appropriate. We’ve got you covered: we’ve created a collection of hairstyles for men over 50 that will help you make the latest trends work for you in a way that’s both comfortable and appropriate.
Ready to wear the latest styles with confidence? Read on for all the inspiration you need:
1. Cleanly Trimmed
Keeping up with your haircut and shaving schedule is key to maintaining a clean and neat look. A short beard gets a modern and clean twist when it’s neatly trimmed and groomed. Use a quick spray of TRESemmé TRES Two Freeze Hold Hairspray to hold your clean haircut in place.
2. Subtly Styled
You’ll want to stay away from over-styling in order to maintain a sophisticated look. Run a little bit of water over your comb before you brush through your hair to streamline your style and keep it fresh.
3. Clean Lines
With the right styling skills and a strong dose of confidence, you can take your style a step further by incorporating hair gel into your look. Run Dove Men+Care Control Gel through your strands for a slightly cleaner alternative to the previous style.
4. All Slicked Back
Similar to the subtle styling routine we ran through above, all this look takes is a bit more water and running your comb through your hair to create this slicked back look. One of our fave hairstyles for men over 50!
5. Lightly Combed
Use a drop of hair pomade like Bed Head for Men by TIGI Slick Trick Firm Hold Pomade and comb your hair back into a slightly styled look.
6. Ordered Chaos
This style is the most ideal of hairstyles for men over 50 who are still holding onto their thick strands. Show them off with a messy and windblown style. The key to keeping this look age-appropriate is to pair it with a clean haircut.
7. Effortless Style
Keep it effortless and easy with a laid-back and messy style.
8. Cropped Short
You can always count on a cropped short style to be the most sophisticated and on-trend of hairstyles for men over 50.
9. Combed Over
This style doesn’t require any products at all. Simply use your fingers to comb your hair off to the side for an effortless look.
10. High Contrast
If you’ve found that your hair has been thinning, then we suggest going all in with a high-contrast bald look paired with a full, on-trend beard.
