What hairstyle would look good on a 40ish aged woman?

I don't have pics of me but I am a brunette brown eyes 5' 5" 155lbs (working on loosing more) My shape face is oval My hair is at my back of my bra (where it clips) I like the length but on top of my hair is flat looking I used to tease it back in the day to have that puff look with now I am more like ponytail or bun look.(after having kids). Thank you ladies for your input;)

  • I Googled the same thing the other day. I used this site: Short Styles for 40 year old Women

    I went with the blonde style at the bottom.  I love it.

  • I know that she's probably not 40, but it's a great cut that you can do many things with.

  • I am in cosmetology school and i dont think any of the pics on that site is for a 40 year old.

    I think there are some nice hair cuts here, you said you like the lenght so i think added alot of layer would make it look nice. If i saw a picture i could help more :)

  • Forget your age because it is irrelevant.  You need to look at the shape of your face,  the type of hair you have and how much styling you are willing to do every day.
