I love hairstyles with bangs. In fact, I had bangs most of my life until recently. I grew the bangs out because I live in a warm and humid climate now, and it’s difficult to keep the bangs straight and under control.
Bangs can give an edge to your hairstyle, can hide a long forehead or receding hairline, and even mask scars or other imperfections. They can be cut thick and straight across, be wispy, or be cut in a slant to follow the shape of your face and eyes.
A hair dryer and a good hair brush are often necessary to style and shape the bangs. Also, products like an anti-frizz balm can help with the flyaways. Some need to straighten their bangs with a flat iron straightener. Remember, bangs need to be cut regularly and a good pair of hair cutting shears is a good idea to have around.
Here is my list of hairstyles with bangs for older women:
The classic bob with side swept bangs is always in style and fits many women with various face shapes. This style looks good in all shades, even natural gray/white.
This beauty wears the longer hair and side swept bangs perfectly. Longer bangs that partially cover the eyes can be seductive and playful.
These bangs are great if you have thinning hair. They are cut wispily and not straight across leaving them to cover the forehead in a more natural looking way.
Now if you have thick and curly hair, you can still rock bangs. You will need a little extra help to style the bangs and keep them from frizzing.
Try a heat brush to control the shape of your bangs.

If you are lucky to have thick hair, this long hairstyle with bangs is a great option for you. Her bangs are not cut straight across, but rather on a slant following the shape of her face and framing her eyes.
Bangs cut straight across can give you an edgy Cleopatra look. This style looks great in fun colors like red or purple.
This is another classic cut with bangs that older women turn to when their hair starts thinning. Keep the hair color light if you have a receding hairline.
Long side swept bangs look sexy and pair well with a short do. Add some highlights in your bangs to give it texture and interest.
Updos can be simple upswept movements and a basic hair clip. Or an elaborate styling for an event. Keep some wisps of hair down to perfectly frame your face.
