Not So Desperate Housewife Hairstyles...OR Hairstyles for your 40's...

Did you watch Desperate Housewives this week? A fabulous return to fall tv. Edie is not dead. Susan is preggers. Brie is faux-pregnant. And there's a new neighbor. Mostly though, the women look gorgeous and what's great, 4 of the 5 are over 40.

Below are some of the best hairstyles, haircuts, and best hair color for women over forty.

Marcia Cross, Felicity Huffman, Nicolette Sheridan, and Teri Hatcher

While "the wet look" probably won't do it for the average girl, this style with the layers and side-swept bang allows the longer face not to be so long. Also, a little fullness in back and on the sides also helps to even out a long face. It shows that even someone with a long face can wear long hair.

***this shorter style with framing around the face looks the best on long faces.

Marcia Cross with the best red haircolor. Also, Cross shows the redhead how to chose their colors. Look at how gorgeous the yellow shirt looks against her haircolor. She is absolutely glowing here. Also a nice basic cut (for not-so-perfect faces, put your part on the side...)

I'm having such a hard time deciding what to do with my long hair. I am mid-40's with hair the length of "Bree" which I was hoping to grow for "Locks of Love". The longer it gets, the harder it is to wash, dry, etc. I have bangs in the middle. I am heavy, round faced. The past few years everyone had long hair and now I see everyone cutting it to a bob or shorter. My husband hates me with short hair. I was thinking a shoulder length cut like a longer bob? I am having such a problem finding any photos I like. Do you have any ideas??

You have spent a lot of time working on your blog and have done a fantastic job! Thank you for all your info.

Hello R. Queen--

I'm look for some ideas. I'm one of the people who cut their hair into a bob and am currently growing it out, I think that look is done with for awhile.

Shoulder length would be good, esp in the summer if you want to pull if off your neck.

The next photos I post will be for you. I'll look for some good haircuts for you and your face shape.

Short hair definitely isn't for everyone, sometimes it's fun to do, but you definitely want something you feel comfortable with.

Oh and I think most husbands like their wives with longer hair. I've heard that a lot! Just choose a style that looks good on you.

More ideas to come. I'll put in the keywords: RQUEEN so you know it's for you.

Thank you for commenting so fast! I got my bangs clipped yesterday because they were in my eyes. I had my long hair evened out so I no longer have uneven ends hanging down my back. I think I want to donate my hair to Pantene since they help woman with cancer. Unfortunately, I highlighted myself about 5 months ago and nobody wants hair with any "bleaching". Now I have to continue to grow my hair out enough to cut off at least 8" of non-dyed hair. I will need cuts until then. Your ideas are greatly appreciated, thank you!
