#1: Pixie Bob with Choppy Bangs

Bold and edgy, a pixie bob with choppy bangs mixes two classic hairstyles. Pairing the short length of a pixie cut with elements of a bob gives a modern and chic look. This fun and edgy hairstyle fits any professional setting. This makes it a great choice for those who want a standout yet easy-to-manage hairstyle.

#2: Short Textured Shaggy Mullet

A short textured shaggy mullet could be in your future. Shaggy cuts are all the rage and are easy to style, so you should consider trying one. Ask your stylist for short shaggy layers and soft lengths left around the ears and back. The style looks best when your hair is dry and tousled, using the body in your hair, and it’s easy to manage. The short bang is perfect to balance out round face shapes but make sure they are wispy. My hot tip is to try styling the top of your hair forward to give your look a more modern feel.

#3: Voluminous Bob for Straight Hair

Straight hair sometimes needs extra assistance to boost volume. Adding graduated layers is an excellent method to achieve it. Request subtle disconnected crown layers for additional lift. These also add height, which is ideal for complementing a round face.

#4: Pixie Crop with Short Bangs

You can also add a round shape to your bangs even if you have a round face. By adding height to the crown of the hairstyle, you can make your face look longer. This feature also compliments shorter bangs. Ask your stylist for a cropped pixie which means you will have extra hair to work with in the crown and temple areas.

#5: Platinum White Bob for Thin Hair

A platinum white bob is a great option for thin hair. A bob cut adds density to fine hair, making limp tresses appear voluminous. Incorporating textured layers provides the thickness needed to give an illusion of height at the top of the head. For seniors who have round faces and worry about looking too short, an asymmetrical parting helps enhance facial length.

#7: Textured Stacked Bob with Wispy Bangs

Go for a textured short stacked bob paired with wispy bangs. Get a graduated stacked bob to add movement, body, and texture to your thin hair. This bob style creates a full hair shape, complemented by wispy bangs to balance a round face shape. Moreover, keeping the hair longer at the front can help elongate the face, while adding waves will enhance the overall texture and body.

#8: Edgy Pixie with Asymmetrical Bangs

Here’s an edgy pixie with asymmetrical bangs. For a round face shape, you should choose asymmetry and crown height. Ask your stylist for this edgy cut and asymmetrical crop. This is a great cut if you want to add volume to finer hair textures.

#9: Side-Parted Wavy Bob Style

A side-parted wavy bob style is a fantastic cut that works on all hair types. The style looks youthful, but older women can wear it easily, making them feel great. The bob cut can soften a round face and hide sagging skin. A light layer is recommended to create volume. To style this bob, you can blow dry or diffuse it. Use a 3/4-inch iron to touch up the top layer if needed.

#10: Voluminous Brushed-Back Pixie for Fine Hair

Want a playful hairstyle for your fine hair? Choose a voluminous brushed-back pixie. Ask your stylist for a pixie cut that is lengthy enough for styling it up and off your face. Styling your pixie cut this way lifts your face naturally and adds volume to your hair. This haircut suits women with round face shapes and finer hair textures.

#12: Gray Chin Bob with Side Bangs

For hair that is graying, a chin-length bob with bangs swept to the side will add softness and volume. A side part is effective in providing a lighter and more fluid appearance to your hairstyle. I recommend using a volume mousse for the best possible blowout on this hairstyle.

Choosing the Right Frame

Take advice from Shoji’s words. “Hair is a frame for your face,” he says, guiding us to pick the right shape. A diamond shape frame is ideal and works best to minimize the roundness. A key factor is the hair length. It should sit at the chin or just 1 inch below it. However, one crucial advice Shoji offers is to avoid a square bob with bangs.

Making the Best Haircut Choice

Thinking about a new haircut? According to Shoji, looking young is about hidden gems and open secrets of your face. Select the feature you want to highlight and the one you wish to downplay and base your selection of a haircut on that. His best bet? A tapered or layered bob without bangs that ends at the jaw length. You can always spice it up with swept away bangs to reveal a bit of your forehead.

Styling Tips and Tricks for Short Hair

Our expert suggests mesmerizing the onlookers with a touch of texture on top. This adds volume to your hair and gives you that coveted diamond shape. To achieve this, you might require products such as a hair paste for normal to thick hair. If you have thin hair, dry shampoo is the way to go. Shoji advises all women over 60 with short hair to aim not for glam, but for sophistication. “Short hair can be very sophisticated with ladies over 60”, he says. It’s not just about the hair, it’s about reflecting the rich life you have led.
