Short hairstyles for women over 60 with grey hair are any pixie or bob-length cut that demands low maintenance. These are great for many different hair types and can enhance natural volume.
Hairstylist and salon owner Molly Romano from Chicago, IL is fond of a bob cut. “It works well on any face shape. It can also be tailored and detailed to show off your favorite facial features,” she states.
A thorough consultation is key. This is to discuss what length and shape you want to have and how much you’re willing to style your locks every day.
Textured, blunt and French bobs are easy to style, offering volume and fullness to hair. These types of bob cuts are perfect for older women.
Don’t forget to ask what products and tools to use at home. Know some tips and tricks to style your new short hair, too.
The only drawback of this cut is if you’re in your 60s and like to change your look more often. “A bob takes time and patience to grow out, and certain color techniques may not suit the chop,” Romano warns.
If you’re a mature woman, cut your hair short and make a bold statement! Here are the images of the trendy short hairstyles for women with grey hair over 60.
