The best bob haircuts for women over 60 with fine hair create an illusion of fullness and volume. The youthful-looking variations include blunt, layered, long and angled, textured, sleek, and so on.

Want a voluminous and presentable look? Hairstylist Dacia Metsker from Henderson, NV says that is what bob cuts offer.

“My #1 suggestion when considering a shorter hairstyle for fine hair is to make sure it fits your daily routine. A bob cut could be a wash-and-go type, depending on your hair,” states Metsker.

Your preferred haircut must also complement your face shape and facial features. Otherwise, the result may come as a shock, especially if you’ve never had a shorter chop.

Bobbed hair requires a precision cut. It’s necessary that you seek professional service. Metsker explains, “It’s very easy to get wrong, so find a stylist who is confident in creating these shapes.”

Ask for styling tips such as the products that can support the style and volume in your locks.

“The right hair products will help you to feel like you can make the most of your new cut. You can also recreate the look your stylist put together at the salon,” Metsker notes.

#1: Natural Short Bob for Thinning Hair

A natural short bob for thinning hair is the perfect haircut to add thickness. Having a one-length bob with blunt ends gives a nice solid shape, and the best part is it’s one of the easiest haircuts to style. Use a round brush to give volume, or if you want a dressier look use a one-inch curling iron to create waves.

#2: Jet Black Bob for Fine Hair

Styling aging hair can be tricky. However, a jet-black bob is a great option for adding volume and density, especially for fine hair types. If you struggle to get volume, a blunt bob is the best way to create an illusion of more hair. Blunt bobs not only create the illusion of density but also allow for soft, face-framing layers. These layers can add soft movement to the most flattering areas of your cheeks.

#3: Divine Smooth Bob

If you have aging, thin, or lifeless hair, consider a smooth bob hairstyle. Short bobs, like the smooth bob, are ideal for aging and flatter, thinning hair.

#4: Natural Grey, Fine Hairstyle

If you want a new look for your natural grey hair, try lifting the back part for more volume and fullness. The shape of your uplifted hair will fit into place with minimum effort.

#5: Sassy Side Parted Platinum Bob

If you want a chic style, try this bold platinum bob style with a side part. Bold hairstyles can make you look and feel young. So, why wouldn’t you try one?! To create the look, start with damp hair. Use a round brush and concentrate on lifting the roots. Tug gently on your hair and curl the ends under. After using a finishing spray, your look is complete.

#6: Pixie Shag Bob Cut

The pixie shag bob is a contemporary and textured hairstyle that combines the elements of a pixie cut with the layering and movement of a shag haircut. Pixie shags don’t have to be mature. They can be trendy and sassy instead. These short, textured layers in the cut add volume and dimension while maintaining the ease and low-maintenance appeal of a bob.

#7: Neck-Grazing Brunette Bob with Bangs

Consider a neck-grazing brunette bob with bangs. This style can add fullness to your hair. The bob length will give the appearance of fuller hair, while the bangs can create the illusion of added volume around the face. Choosing a brunette shade can also provide the illusion of thicker hair.

The white-platinum highlights are perfect for adding texture and depth to aging hair. The color will make it appear fuller and less dull. Styling products are ideal for adding shine and texture to keep the look fresh and modern. A light hairspray is also an excellent choice for holding the hair in place without weighing it down.

#9: Short Bob with Wispy Fringe

Update your style and try a short bob with a wispy fringe. People will stare and your great cut, not your wrinkles. A wispy shape softens your facial features dramatically. Ask your stylist for medium layers, leaving the crown long, and point cutting in the fringe for the most modern style. You’ll want to blow dry with either smoothing cream or thickening cream depending on your hair texture.

#10: Short Feathered Bob

A short feathered bob is a way great to achieve thickness all over the head. With the movement going away from the face and a short stack in the back, this combo makes the hair look thicker and fuller by concentrating the hair away from the face rather than toward it. When styling feathered hairstyles for women over 60 with thin hair, volumizing products are great to boost the feathery layers, followed by a round brush blowout.

#11: Blunt Chin-Length Bob for Women With Glasses

Opt for a blunt chin-length bob if you wear glasses. The strong front with no face-framing is a go-to for women who want to be able to tuck the hair behind the ear. It allows for zero hair fall into the face while creating fullness and the appearance of a thicker hair density. Smoothing serum is a good product choice if you want a sleek look.

#12: Short Bob with Fringe for Fine Straight Hair

A short bob with fringe is a great cut for fine straight hair. Smooth and straight locks have the best hair texture for a strong fringe. Zero effort is needed in styling bangs – how they are cut is how they will lay. Short hairstyles provide an added body to the shape of the locks without looking too stacked. Maintenance on this edgy hairstyle is about every 6 weeks in the salon.

#13: Very Short Bob for Fine Curly Hair

A very short bob haircut will give that curl the boost of volume it’s been wanting. Short curly bobs aren’t your typical grandma cut, but they’re more fashionable and up-to-date. A diffuser and curl cream are needed when finishing off hairstyles for curly hair over 60.

#14: The Pixie Bob for Fine Hair

The pixie bob for women in their 60s will give your grey hair the volume it needs. With its super-stacked back and long sides plus the subtle crown layers, it’s a perfect pair to add volume to the hair while also covering those unwanted forehead wrinkles. Salon maintenance to keep the flattering shape of pixie haircuts is every 4 to 6 weeks.

A blunt bob with bangs and beachy waves is a cut that never goes out of style. Ladies over 60 with thin hair can really benefit from this cut due to more movement and its illusion of fullness. A beach styler wand is your best styling tool to achieve this beautiful look.

#16: Razor Cut Textured Bob with Fringe

When cut with a razor, a textured bob with fringe will create a lived-in and hand-crafted shape. Textured bobs give the hair a messier look, therefore, creating less work on the styling part. Root spray and texture cream are great styling products for this haircut.

#17: Short Bob with Side-Swept Bangs

A short bob with side-swept bangs is perfect for 60-year-olds who want to hide their forehead lines. Short bobs and bangs are a classic style that will never fade out. With a short length on the back of the neck and a longer length toward the front, the style will be in the short realm without losing a lot of length around the face.

Wispy bangs with face-framing layers are a great combo. Fine-haired women always struggle with achieving a full fringe look, but these thin bangs are a perfect, younger-looking match.

#26: Blunt Long Bob

A long bob hair style is where mid-length meets a traditional bob. Shoulder-length hairstyles, such as a lob, create the illusion of fuller hair with its blunt line work and minimal soft layers.
