30 Stylish and Sexy Short Hairstyles for Women Over 40

Most women over 40 say that they are much more confident than they are in their 30s. With that being said, your 40s is the best time to express new hairstyles to who you are! It’s not about the trends anymore and definitely not about fitting in.

It’s about the confident fabulous YOU.

# 1 Sexy fringe

Women usually ask, for pony hide wrinkles and you usually ask for them to look like the kind of pony most women hide from folds – across and wispy. These pony cover wrinkles, but you also send a message that you are hiding something! The look is also very dated, which in reality can age you. Why not get another and stylish kind of fringe, the primary goal is not just to hide the wrinkles, but actually express your style? This long whip-willow sweeps fringes stylishly over the model’s forehead and is beautifully grained.
