Curly Wigs with Bangs
Curly wigs are always beautiful for women of all ages, and older women are no exception. However, what makes this style unique is the fact that it comes with bangs that have the job of covering your hairline so you don’t have to try too hard to blend the wig’s hairline with yours.

These wigs also last a really long time, so you can enjoy them until you want to move on. Pull out this Tracee Ellis Ross-inspired style anytime and rock it!
Finger Wave Wig
Say hello to the early 90s making their way back again with the fashionable finger waves that’ll always look good on black women, especially older ones. This style is a summer sweetheart and perfect for women in their fifties who want to keep their style simple, comfortable, and flexible. With finger waves, you can also keep the colors varied depending on your preference. It could take an average of 15 minutes to install a finger wave wig and could be more or less, depending on your level of expertise. You’ll have to deal with glue and hairline manipulation, and that’s what most of the time will be spent on. Do you think they looked lovely on Danielle Brooks? They’ll rock on you too.
Jerry Curl Wig
Jerry Curl wig is a definite yes for women over 50, especially the mid-length kind because it adds creates volume, which is a breath of fresh air if you had been dealing with thinning hair. The wig delivers a youthful and trendy look and is suitable to be enjoyed all year round. Installing your jerry curl wigs could take as much time as the finger wave because you have to pay attention to baby hairs, glue, and proper positioning. However, it is always worth the time.
Bob wigs are one of the favorite wig options for women in their fifties and above because they are flattering, and framing, and they do justice to the hairline. Our favorite is a blunt-cut short bob wig because it delivers a youthful and relaxed look, saves you from the stress of layered wigs and delivers a positive edgy look. Taraji P Henson is always the bob style inspo for us, and we hope, for you.
Headband wigs are becoming a fast favorite for black women over 50, especially those who have neither the time nor the interest in lace wigs and glue installation. Headband wigs need no sewing, and no glue, and deliver the comfort of wearing and removing in just a few seconds. Of course, there’s the beautiful decorative headband that covers the hairline as a topping. Your headband wigs can be long or short, but mid-length will flatter the fifties lady more.
