We all have role models. And, mine is my Nana Edith who lived In Style and with ageless confidence and a spring in her step into her 90's.

How not to style your hair after 50 is pretty easy to figure out because too much au naturale doesn't work the way it used to. So, let's just NOT do the trending "wet look" and the long stringy look which is in style for 2023 (See Harpers Bazaar and Elle UK for, in our humble opinion, WhatBA50s should avoid.)
That said, we have curated some incredible styles that will definitely inspire you. Check out Jennifer Aniston, Cate Blanchette and Julia Roberts' great looks for starters and then we have a You Tube 2023 hair style link that you will love....
