Without exaggerating, the right hairstyle can make you look years younger. The challenge faced by many older women is staying in their comfort zone with a haircut for decades or going for a style that is too strict. A modern hairstyle upgrades every few years can do wonders for women of all ages. Not only is your hair condition changing, but you are also changing too. The good news is that the bob is still one of the most popular haircuts in 2022, but it can always be varied. We present you with 6 beautiful layered bob hairstyles that will be totally trendy in 2022. A layered bob is a hairstyle that suits every woman over 50!
Especially at the age of 50, it is recommended that you rely on layered cuts that give the hairstyle overall movement. Blunt haircuts and geometric lines can contour a face, but they're not for everyone. A layered bob, on the other hand, gives thin hair more body and is very easy to style.
One of the biggest hair trends for 2022 is the bixie cut – a hybrid of a pixie and a bob. Think of the short haircuts worn by stars like Winona Ryder, Meg Ryan, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Cameron Diaz in the '90s. They weren't short enough to be called pixies, but not 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 on the top of the head and runs fringed and narrow towards the bottom. If you are considering getting a bixie hairstyle, there is one thing you should consider: 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 can look too heavy, while thin hair tends to lack volume at the top of the head.
The hairstyle looks very modern and casual at the same time
Gray hair can also look great with this hairstyle
Feathered hairstyles first became popular in the 1970s and were popular with both women and men. The fine gradation of the hair makes them look almost like bird feathers, which gives this hairstyle its name.

The right haircut can quickly and easily transform your entire look for the better. One of the best (and always stylish) haircuts is the short nape layered bob, also known as the stacked bob, which is both chic and easy to maintain. The generously layered hair at the front is slightly slanted and usually reaches to the chin.
You can also style your stacked bob curly
The most important element of this hairstyle is that the back part is perfectly trimmed. Since this is a layered cut, the back view is the focal point of the look, so it needs to be done right. The gradual layering at the back of the head gives the bob an overall rounded shape.
Here the steps are not so noticeable

These bangs might look a bit strange at first glance, but it adds a certain rock touch to any hairstyle. So it's not surprising that a handful of our favorite celebs sport this hairstyle.
Shaggy hairstyles are an easy way to add pizzazz to your hair
