By the time a woman reaches her sixties, her personal style has long been set. This means that you have more freedom to try different hairstyles which match your current interests. While women in their sixties have a wider range of choices, it should be limited by your interests and not the latest styles. What follows are a few excellent hairstyles for women over 60.
One of the simplest and deceptively easiest hairstyles to maintain is the Ash Layers, sometimes called Stacked Ash Layers. As the name suggests, this is a layer cut, but one that mixes the grey with the natural coloring of your hair, so it hides the gray to a certain degree. Plus, the nature of the cut means that it needs far less maintenance to keep its shape.
This is a relatively new style that is trendy, but age-appropriate when the cut is right. What makes this variation of the bob work so well is the hint of movement that it brings. It also compliments the best features of your face while being original and relatively easy to maintain. It needs to be cut right, so work with your professional to get what you want.
While many women associate a pixie hairstyle with youth, it works for all ages. The pixie cut adds layers and is perfect for women with thinning hair. A popular variation is softening the normally blunt lines and adding to the fringe areas of the hair for greater volume. The way the pixie cut frames the face and the uplift that it offers helps make it one of the best for women over 60.
This is a messy look, but one that is natural and perfect for women with thicker hair. In addition to the shaggy cut, the hair is teased so that it helps hide any gray hairs lurking about. You can use a touch-up spray to add new life to your shaggy cut and it will also act as a dry shampoo to keep your hair healthy and full.
Another variation of the popular bob hairstyle, is both vintage and modern. Similar in some ways to the flapper hairstyles of the 1920s, the sharp bob provides a powerful look that will be noticed. You can use your blow dryer to add some fullness while only makes this hairstyle one that really stands out.
Short Layers w/Balayage
This is a variation of the traditional short layered hairstyle that adds balayage highlights for a unique, natural appearance. For those who prefer their hair short and they have curls, this hairstyle is a great way to add depth and highlights for a sophisticated, but easy to maintain the look. This hairstyle works with the natural curls you have and provides an extra dimension that augments your appearance.
There are many hairstyles for women over 60 available. The secret is finding the one that fits your style, is easy to maintain, and compliments your features.
