Being over 60 doesn’t mean you have to stick to outdated and oftentimes unstylish haircuts. You know the kind: the granny haircut. This is usually long, with no volume, and looks as if you have a family of swallows living in your hair. It is easily possible to rock a beautiful, modern and stylish short hairstyle as you cruise through your golden years. If you are out of ideas, here are some classic and timeless short haircuts for women over 60.
Stacked Ash Layers
This is a great look for the mature lady looking to have a rocking new look but that requires very little maintenance. The blend between grey and blonde makes it both stylish and at the same time you can still retain some of the natural hair color. If you are not into constantly going in to the hairdresser for a spruce up, this is the perfect low maintenance cut. This is one of the most popular short haircuts for women over 60.
Short Cut with Asymmetrical Bangs
Hair is an excellent accessory. It should be used as a means to showcase your best features and to hide and distract from any “problem areas”. Shorter haircuts should frame and accentuate what is already there rather than to try and change it. That’s why having a short cut with graduated bangs pulls the attention to your eyes and the layers make for more lift and framing of your beautiful face. Add on a splash of color, say gray or balayage or ombre to give your haircut a little more of a modern look. There have been some fun hair color trends in the recent past.
Curled Out Bob
To get the most out of your haircut, look at your best features and find a hairstyle that emphasizes those features. If you have a beautiful neck, then you should get a hairstyle that shows it off. A tip to consider no matter what age you are, is to think about the length of your face as well as the shape of the face. This is very important the more mature you get. The curled-out bob is a great haircut that is also very easy to get done and pull off. The added benefit is that it accentuates your neck. This style is especially good if you have thick hair.
Super Short and Chic
Think Ellen Degeneres, short and simple but still very stylish. This is a great and versatile style that is great for ladies over 60. You can wear it whether you have glasses or not. One of the best things about this hairstyle is that it has all the hair styled away from the face. This allows your features to shine through and be the main focus. It also means that if you have glasses your hair won’t interfere with them. You can imitate Ellen by giving it some length on the sides near the temples, this will give it a bit of a feminine touch.
If you are looking for a good low maintenance haircut that is both stylish and yet still professional looking, then the short bob is for you. It is excellent both in and out of the boardroom.
