Worst Hairstyles for Women Over 40
Get the wrong cut or color and you could look 10 years older -- or like a wannabe tween
Hair Don't: An overly-complicated cutTechnically this is a good rule for any woman, not just those over 40. Kastin says to "make sure you get a haircut that you can make look good at home." The reasoning is pretty simple: If your haircut involves complicated and time-consuming styling, you probably won't do it most days, which means your hair is going to look less than stellar.
So if you're a whiz with a flat iron and have time to kill, go ahead and get a sleek and structured style like Sandra Bullock's or an asymmetrical pixie like Jenna Elfman's (please, please skip the stripe-y color though, ugh). But if you don't know a round from a paddle brush, stick to one of the cuts on the next slide.
