Short hairstyles for older women – thin hair, round face and over 60
Why do women seem to always go for the shorter cut as they age? It’s because as the hair loses pigment, it changes texture and becomes thinner. The texture of grey hair is coarser and dryer, so the hair can become more brittle and difficult to maintain, calling for the great chop. I think there is something quite empowering about going for shorter styles despite your age. Short hair is a statement; it is liberating and fierce. Short hair on an older woman is representative of her eclectic taste and life experience. A woman who can rock the short hair is a powerful woman, bold and self-assured.
Here are some short hairstyles for older women that we think would look fashionable for different hair types and face shapes.
Short hairstyles for older women with thin hair
Older women with thinner hair should go for shorter hair styles that are easy to add volume and texture to by a blow dryer or additional product. Of course you want to eliminate the amount of time and energy you put into your hair with a shorter hair style since there will be less hair. At least drying time won’t be too long and product can easily give it a bit of a lift. You can have your hair combed back or add some product to hold the hair up.
Short hairstyles for older women with round face
Is it the sun? Is it the moon? As a fellow round face, I can tell you that getting a short haircut can be daunting as the wrong style can really accentuate the roundness of your face. It is always best to go for a short bob and its variations like the graduated bob. Go for cuts that elongate the face and accentuate your features. Concave cuts are also very fun and youthful. You can go for a blunt cut with bangs for an edgier look.
Short hairstyles for older women over 60
What? You barely even look 60! I know at this age most women want to go for a more mature look, but you can still have a mature hairstyle and look incredibly youthful. All these cuts have a combination of mature and still very youthful and in with the trends. You can go for a concave cut, a shorter bob or a pixie cut. Style this to perfection to suit your face shape. I personally think that shorter hair styles look great with added volume.
You can even add a hint of colour to your hair to make it more vibrant. I know this may seem a bit outlandish, but coloured hair is all the rave at the moment. Blue especially complements grey and silver hair tones.
In which ever short hair style you choose to style your hair, we are sure that you will look beautiful. We hope you enjoyed all the suggestions and even potentially be bold enough to try the added colour to the hair. Why not? Life is too short for boring hair!
