Women are gorgeous no matter what age group they belong to! However, nature is not very kind when it comes to the aging process and all our gorgeous assets like hair, skin, physique seem to go downhill during the late forties. The biggest problem we face is the weight gain which is unavoidable after you have reached the menopausal stage.
Did you know that you could actually alter your appearance (for the better of course!) with a change in hairstyle? Fat or overweight women often complain that they look rather frumpy no matter what they try (clothes, shoes etc.), completely ignoring the fact that more often than not it is the hairstyle that they have opted for is the cause behind it.
Fat or overweight women over 50 should definitely steer clear of very short hair as it would just draw attention to the rest of the body and not the face. The idea is to draw attention away from the heavier parts of the body. Choose a cut that frames your face (the entire length of your jaw), that way the attention would remain on your face.
Go for styles or cuts that look very clean, like soft waves or a feathered style that gives you a very feminine and becoming look or a simple side flip with straightened hair till the neck too could give a slimming effect. The choices are many, choose one that makes you feel gorgeous and good about yourself because at the end of the day you are GORGEOUS even at 50!
