The type of hairstyle you want changes as you age. Lucky for us, we live in an era when age is just considered a number. What’s important is that you have lots of options to choose from to make you feel and look younger.
Check out these 17 hairstyle ideas for women over the age of 60:
1. The Classic Updo
Sometimes, all you need is the classic updo. Tie your hair up and tuck away the remaining strands to look elegant. To look more fashionable, use natural hair care products and some hair accessories.
2. The Asymmetrical Pixie
For busy ladies, the asymmetrical pixie is such a stylish and hip cut. Because pixie comes in different styles, make sure you let your stylist know what you really want to achieve.
3. The “Emmy Lou” Layers
Do you know Emmy Lou Harris? She is a fashion icon that everybody looks up to. She is known for her shaggy cut that reveals her true and inner beauty. Take inspiration from her cut. Don’t worry. It’s hassle-free and achievable. It’s an ideal style if you want to let your hair grow.
4. Bangs with Inner Layers
This style is simply beautiful. It is best for women who wish to show their hair, but are hesitant because their strands are too thin. Thanks to the added layers, an illusion of more volume is created. The bangs also help frame the face.
5. Candid Razor Bob
For a framed face with eyes that set off, the candid razor bob is the way to go. It’s only a bonus is you have longer hair because you can further style it into a unique updo.
6. The Simple Bob
The simple bob is a favorite among women and it is obvious why. Not only does it look stylish, it also looks great on all facial shapes. To add a little bit of style, add some layered bangs in front.
7. The Classic Waves
To achieve fuller-looking hair, add some waves to it. This is the best hairstyle for those with wide cheeks because it diverts the attention of people to the waves.
8. Layered Curls
Do you need to accentuate those curls? Consider these layered curls. They are a great way to showcase your locks and to frame your face. To ensure your curls stay beautiful throughout the day, apply an ample amount of curl defining cream.
9. The Side-Swept Bob
Side-swept hair never goes out of style. So, why not take the style to the next level by experimenting it with a bob. It’s not only chic. It also looks classy!
10. Wavy Ends
If you want to make your hair bouncy, add some waves at the end. Don’t worry if you have thin hair. This style should work out just fine, adding volume to your hair from 0 to 10.
11. The “Meryl Streep” Inspired Updo
We all know Meryl Streep. Although we hated her attitude in the film, The Devil Wears Prada, we cannot deny the fact that her style was impressive. Imitate her updo if you are like her, a woman who is not afraid to go against the odds when it comes to fashion. The flicked-out ends and the voluminous hair sections add a stylish effect to any lengthy bob.
12. The Retro Waves
This style is anything like you would see in a vintage Hollywood flick. It’s more than perfect for any women who hate to cut their hair short. The loose waves at the end will make your face look slim and slender.
13. The One-Swish Bangs
One way to draw focus to your facial features and not to your hair is through this hairstyle. When done in a bob, it’ll look very sculpted.
14. The “Jane Fonda” Look
Google Jane Fonda and you will see that her hairstyle is almost similar in all her events. Well, it’s obvious why. Her bangs and on-fleek ends make her look young and youthful.
15. The Shag
Because of its multiple layers, this hairstyle makes women appear youthful. The layers make the hair look gorgeous. They also slim down the lower half of the face.
16. The “Judi Dench” Pixie
Judi Dench sure knows how to sport this pixie. It’s low-maintenance and cool to experiment with. You can even add spikes and make them appear like a crown.
17. The Swept-Up Bob
This is also a low-maintenance hairstyle that brings out the youth in you because it makes the face look lean and long. To achieve this, use a strong-hold hair gel and brush your hair up. Spritz your favorite hairspray to keep your updo in place for hours.
Now, have you decided which hairstyle to rock when you’re over 60? Well, don’t rush. You’ve got plenty of options above.
