Without exaggerating, the right hairstyle can make you look years younger. The challenge many older women face is staying in their comfort zone with a haircut for decades or choosing a style that is too severe. A modern hairstyle upgrade every few years can do wonders for women of all ages. Not only does your hair condition change, you change too. The good news is that the bob is still one of the most popular haircuts in 2022, but can always be varied. We present to you 6 gorgeous layered bob hairstyles that will be totally in in 2022. A layered bob is THE hairstyle that suits every woman over 50!
Especially at the age of 50+, it is recommended that you go for layered cuts that give movement to the hairstyle as a whole. Blunt-cut hair and geometric lines can contour a face, but they are not for everyone. A layered bob, on the other hand, adds fullness to thin hair and is very easy to style.

The Bixie Cut makes a comeback
One of the biggest hair trends for 2022 is the bixie cut – a mix of pixie and bob. Think of the short haircuts that stars like Winona Ryder, Meg Ryan, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz wore in the 90s. They weren’t short enough to be called pixies, but they weren’t long enough to be considered bobs either.
This is how Gwyneth Paltrow wore the hairstyle in the ’90s
This layered short haircut is characterized by fullness at the top of the head and runs out fringed and narrow at the bottom. If you’re considering getting a bixie hairstyle, keep one thing in mind: Your hair type.
The bixie exudes retro charm
This hairstyle is more suitable for women with medium thick hair, so that the hair on the top of the head does not lie flat. However, if you have thicker hair, this hairstyle may look too heavy, while if you have thin hair, the volume at the top of the head is usually not maintained.
The hairstyle looks very modern and casual at the same time.

The generously layered hair in the front is slightly slanted and usually reaches the chin.
