​15 Must-Try Hairstyles for Women Over 40

From long and sleek to short and choppy.

By Tehrene Firman, Redbook

[post_ads]A lot of things probably entered your mind after hitting 40—and if you instantly felt like you needed to refresh your hairstyle, you're not alone. Look to these celebrities (who are all 40 and up!) for inspiration before your next salon visit.


Lucy Liu: Long and Wavy

You can't go wrong with long and wavy hair no matter what age you are. To recreate Lucy Liu's beachy waves, simply wrap your hair around a 1 1/4" curling wand.


Rashida Jones: Blunt With Bangs

Looking for an easy style that will have you out the door in no time at all? Rashida Jones' blunt 'do with bangs is the perfect fit. Just run a straightening iron over your stands, and voilà.


Julia Roberts: Long and Beachy

There's no need to cut your hair as you get older — just give it some texture to keep it looking fresh. You can replicate Julia Roberts's texturized waves by using a product like ORIBE Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray.


Padma Lakshmi: Short and Choppy

An easy way to give your style a little sass is to cut it short and choppy like Padma Lakshmi. Add texture and volume by wrapping small sections around a 1" curling wand.


Jada Pinkett Smith: Short and Sleek

If you'd rather keep things simple, Jada Pinkett Smith's collarbone-grazing lob is as elegant as it is low-maintenance.


Leslie Mann: Barely-There Waves

Ready for the easiest hairstyle ever? When you have Leslie Mann's length, the only thing you need to do on the daily is add texture. Spritz on some salt spray — like Bumble and Bumble's bestselling Surf Spray — then rake your fingers through.


Eva Longoria: Short and Sweet

Eva Longoria's go-to as of late is a short, curly hairstyle with a deep side part. Looking to pump up the volume like Longoria? Switching to a side part creates instant lift at the crown.


Halle Berry: Bouncy With Bangs

If you're considering bangs, know that you don't have to go all out with something blunt that covers your whole forehead. Halle Berry is proof that a little goes a long way.


Kelly Ripa: Short and Flirty

Kelly Ripa's short, flirty look can be recreated with a 1" wand and a few sprays of a texturizing product, like Paul Mitchell Invisiblewear Undone Texture Hairspray.


Reese Witherspoon: Long and Blunt

Witherspoon's long, blunt cut and center part help highlight her gorgeous heart-shaped face.


Salma Hayek: Long and Sleek

While Reese was rocking the blunt ends, Salma Hayek went for something a little more romantic with soft, long layers that begin just below her shoulder.


Gwyneth Paltrow: Loose Waves

If you want to add some volume to long, fine hair like Gwyneth Paltrow's, grab a 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" curling wand. Leave a couple of inches at the ends uncurled for a more casual look.


Sofia Vergara: Long With Bangs

The long hair + bangs combination, like Sofia Vergara's, is sleek, chic, and always looks polished.


Cindy Crawford: Deep Side Part

Cindy Crawford's mane is further proof that a side part adds major va-va-voom to otherwise standard blowouts.


Viola Davis: Curly Bob

Viola Davis's short, curly bob is great for a few reasons: It's easy to manage, takes only a few minutes to style, and always looks stunning.
