Are you over 60 and wear glasses? Older women often feel like there’s only a limited amount of short hair ideas out there. Today, I’m going to open your eyes to see trendy new ideas that will help you clearly find your next short hairdo!

Unlike some cuts for young hipsters, there are plenty of short hairstyles for women over 60 with glasses. Just have a look at female celebs who have already flaunted the hair idea, such as Jane Lynch and Helen Mirren!

There are two main things to consider when choosing your short hairstyle: the glasses you wear and your lifestyle. “Sometimes, certain styles around the face don’t work with the frames,” says professional stylist Sylvia York of Georgia. When it comes to lifestyle, a key question to answer York says to answer is “do you have a regime or are you a wash-and-go kind of gal?”

Committing to short hair means more maintenance. York goes on to explain that if you don’t know how to, or don’t want to style shorter hair, it probably will not work for you. You must be willing to come to the salon every 4-6 weeks for trims.

So before your next hair appointment, check out these inspiring photos of short haircuts for women over 60 with glasses.

Brushed Up Pixie Cut for 60-Year-Olds with Glasses

#1: Brushed Up Pixie Cut

If you just can’t stand hair on your forehead, you should try a bushed-up pixie cut. Ask your stylist for short hair all around, but be aware the sides might need to be left longer so your eyewear doesn’t make them stick out. Thick-sided eyeglasses can sometimes be problematic. Having said that, the brushed-up fringe will work wonderfully to accommodate your glasses.

#2: Graduated Bob Cut with Side Bangs

The graduated bob haircut comes with short layers at the back and longer layers around the cheeks and chin. This versatile hairstyle also includes side bangs, which boost the hairstyle’s shape. With them, the face gets framed, and the eyes and cheekbones get highlighted. The combination produces a flattering and modern look. Ensure you add light texture at the end, resulting in a soft, sleek finished look.

#3: Feathered for Thin Hair

This short feathered style is a great choice for aging women with thin hair. Sadly, this style doesn’t give the same look for women with coarse hair. The layers in this haircut create movement and texture and provide the appearance of fuller hair. The feathered ends give a soft and flattering look, while the shorter length helps to add volume to thin hair. This style works beautifully with glasses as it frames the face and accentuates features. To style this cut, use a volumizing mousse on damp hair and blow-dry using a round brush for added lift. Finish off with a lightweight hairspray to maintain the style without weighing down the hair.

#4: Adorable Precision Cut

This haircut is carefully crafted to enhance facial features and flatter face shapes. The precision cut provides structure and clean lines, creating a timeless appeal that is perfect as we age. The precision cut works well for women with glasses because it showcases the frames while framing the face beautifully. Expert advice recommends starting with a consultation to determine the best length and style for individual preferences and hair type. Regular trims are essential to maintain the precision and shape of the cut and will ensure it remains flawless and stylish.

#6: Spicy Bob with Natural Color

This bob with natural color is the look for women over 60 who accessorize their style by wearing eyewear. This blunt bob is youthful with a soft, sweepy bang and classic blunt perimeter. In order to keep your natural hair bright, use the Olaplex No.4P Blonde Enhancer Toning Shampoo and Nº.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner. This haircut is low-maintenance, but you should see your stylist every 6 weeks to keep the shape. Blow dry with a round brush for volume to get this look, then use a small amount of finishing spray to lock it in place.

#7: Cute Stacked Bob Style

Give this cute stacked bob style a try! If you have fine hair, this cut will give you the illusion of added fullness. You can wear this look straight or curly.

#8: Grey Pixie Bob for Coarse Hair

This modern grey pixie bob for ladies in their 60s with coarse hair will reveal your natural facial features. Plus, it will work to define them. The low-maintenance cut makes it the best for those who don’t have enough time to fuss with styling. Add some texture spray or light wax to keep your strands looking fresh all day! To complete this trendy look, opt for subtle highlights around the face. That way, they won’t overpower the style. I recommend using a texture wave dry finishing spray for a beachy wave finish.

#9: Beautiful Golden Highlights on a Short Bob

Consider a short cut that is best for you. Your aging hair needs extra attention to look its best. This hairstyle will work well with most face shapes. Those who have thinning hair may find this style suits them especially well. To get the perfect balance of volume and texture, use a Kenra Root Lifting Spray 13 before styling. It will add hold without weighing your locks down.

#10: Dark Auburn Feathered Bob

Your best bet for embracing your aging hair is to try seasonal looks. For example, a dark auburn feathered bob. It keeps the style fresh, with your interest in the best color for the length.

#11: Youthful Side-Swept Bob Cut

If you’re a more mature woman and want an edgier cut without exposing your ears, try a long pixie cut style. Because you’ll have shorter textured layers it won’t weigh down a long face. Do we dare say, it may make you look 10 years younger? As long as you maintain the cut every 4-6 weeks, it won’t lose its shape and the longer sides won’t look heavy.

#12: Short Stacked Bob

A short bob style is a great cut for women that love shape and volume. The layers are “stacked” meaning they are cut to hold up the hair above in a pattern that creates natural volume. A stacked bob will need to be short in order to create the layered stacking effect. Style with a blow dryer and a Denman or flat brush.

#14: Chestnut Brown Sassy Shag

If you’re searching for an urban style, try a chestnut brown shag. Ask you stylist for lots of layers but make sure to leave length in the back and around the ears. Adding a short bang gives even more strength to this cut and also compliments women who wear glasses. Style this shape easily with some hair putty, keeping a messy vibe.

#15: Dark Red Pixie with Side-Swept Baby Fringe

A sassy look is a pixie with a side-swept baby fringe. We love a deep, rich red color and the way that color can really showcase a pixie in a high-fashion way. A side baby fringe is a great add-on to shape/ contour the face. Styling will be minimal, use a heat-protective cream before blow-drying. Finish with a glossing hairspray.

#16: Salt and Pepper French Bob with Straight-Across Bangs

A French bob, paired with straight-across bangs is a very geometric cut. The best face shape for a short bob is oval since the angles accentuate your facial features.

#17: Sleek Bob with Fringe

A bob with a fringe is an edgy short haircut for mature women who are not quite ready for their hair rollers. A fringe can compliment several face shapes and can build a beautiful frame for glasses. When considering a bob, remember that while minimal, some styling may be required in order to keep a sleek and clean-looking hairstyle.
