The best long pixie cuts for women over 60 are cropped with layers. The “lixie” as it’s sometimes called is longer than your standard pixie. I spoke with hairstylist Kate Gibson of Austin, TX, to get some of her best advice if you’re considering this haircut.
Key Things to Know First
- If you currently have long hair and looking for a change, consult with a hairstylist before fully commiting.
- Gibson highly recommends that you go to a hairstylist with experience cutting pixies. Short hair requires different training and techniques.
Pro Tip: Check out a stylists Instagram profile first to see pictures of their work. If the majority of what you see is balayage, then consider someone else.
- A well-trained stylist will know how to customize and texturize your hair properly. They know how to feel the weight and to deliver the dream short haircut experience to any woman.
- You’ll know you’ve found a great hairstylist when 40% of your hair is cut wet and 60% is cut dry.
