44 Stylish Long Pixie Cuts for Women Over 70 to Have a Youthful Glow

Long pixie cuts for women over 70 are short-length cuts with tons of layers to boost volume and texture. Plus, bangs can be added to flatter any face shape and enhance facial features.

Hairstylist Jordan Truong of Medford, MA suggests pixie haircuts for older women.

“The biggest benefit with this cut is it’s easy to style , especially if you’re not good with a round brush. It’s the perfect go-to hairstyle for women with thin and fine tresses,” he points out.

Long pixies can be tricky to create, so find a skilled hairstylist to chop your locks. You can do your research via social media. “The most important thing to ask a stylist is if they have experience with short hair,” Truong adds.

Regular salon visits are a must to maintain a great style and sassy haircut. Go for a trim every 4-5 weeks to re-establish the pixie’s shape. However, this can be a drawback for 70-year-old women who can’t commit to this kind of maintenance.

#1: Side-Parted Red Long Pixie with Highlights

A red-colored pixie with highlights would have a fuller look if styled with side-parted long layers. Even a slight change in the positioning of your parting can immediately refresh your look. I recommend using a color-enhancing shampoo at home to maintain the vibrancy of your red tones between salon visits. Finish off your look using a shine spray!

#2: Brunette Pixie with Choppy Layers and Bangs

A brunette pixie with choppy layers and bangs is a lovely choice for women over 70. The spiky layers and mass of texture will make aging hair look fuller and more youthful. Moreover, this hairstyle adds a fun edge to your everyday look!

#3: Long Pixie Crop with Thin Layers

Older women with a square face shape should consider a pixie cut that’s longer and has thin layers. Longer pixie cuts are generally more flattering on square face shapes.

#4: Grey Long Pixie with Short Sides

A long pixie cut can be styled in various ways — for an easy yet trendy look, wear it with short sides and a textured crown. Pixie cuts are practical, saving your styling time at home. While they are easy to style, remember that pixie cuts require professional maintenance every 4-6 weeks. For a flawless look, it’s best to keep some length on top and add texture to ensure smooth hair growth.

#5: Silver Layered Lixie with Full Bangs

A silver layered pixie is a chic, elegant choice for a short style. Pair it with full bangs for a more edgy look. Short hair can be a powerful expression of personal style. You can experiment with the length, finish, and even the detailing. Layered pixies with a lot of texture are often seen as playful and youthful. Adding texture to the crown can eliminate weight and create a soft, flowing movement.

#6: Gray Pixie Bob with Swept Bangs

The look is a heavily textured, long pixie haircut featuring heavy side bangs that are feathered back. This haircut suits those who prefer low maintenance. It works well for clients with thick hair since it removes extra weight, enabling a more textured, flowing style.

#7: Side-Swept Lixie for Round Faces

Round-faced ladies who are looking for a complimentary style should try a side-swept pixie. The low side part and draping front do wonders for a round face shape. The flatter lines of this cut are very youthful and easy to achieve. Keep in mind you are not trying to style this shape with a ton of fullness, so a medium round brush and your hands are all you need. You’ll want to dry the hair directionally to the side and front for a funky finish.

#9: Long Pixie Blowout

A longer pixie gives more room for styling. I suggest you sweep your hair up and away from your face for an uplifting effect as you age. If you prefer some facial framing or if that suits your face shape better, you can include soft, wispy framing and bangs.

#10: Pixie Shag with Light Bangs

Try the pixie shag with light bangs. The term shaglet refers to a long version of a pixie shag mullet. Choose this style when you prefer more length around your face and neck. The result is a soft layered shape that works beautifully with your bone structure and hair texture. For an easy finish, wash your hair and apply some cult king hair jelly.

#11: Ash Blonde Long Pixie Style

If you want a shorter style but aren’t ready for a short pixie, the long pixie style is an ideal choice. This cut, which has layers stacked upon each other and is cut blunt at the neckline, is a great option if you want to transition from having long hair.

For women over 70, a long platinum pixie with choppy bangs is a stunning hairstyle choice. If you want to hide fine lines or wrinkles on your forehead, choppy bangs can cover these up, giving you a playful yet edgy cut.

#19: Thin Pixie with Side Part

Try a pixie haircut with a side part if you have thin hair. All you need is a little hair paste to add texture and volume. I recommend Redken Brews Cream Pomade as it is easy to work with and helps create a piecey look!

#20: Feathered Pixie with Fringe

If you want a longer version of the classic pixie chop, you can try a feathered pixie with fringe. This blended style is longer at the top and sides compared to the standard super short pixie cut.

Opt for a lixie-style haircut with asymmetrical bangs. Add some edge to your look by incorporating asymmetrical bangs into your haircut. For mature women, this cut adds volume to the top and is still short for easy management. This haircut works with your hair’s thickness and texture to create an ideal style.

#22: Pixie Hair with Crown Layers

A long pixie provides short hair while keeping some length to style. Add shorter crown layers for volume. Also, include a layered side-swept bang for a gentle look around the eyes.

#23: White Blonde Pixie with Pink Highlights

The tapered pixie cut has longer layers towards the front. These extra layers add volume and texture. Combine that with a bold color for a dramatic effect. Make sure to apply the bold hue under the layers. This coloring method helps to conceal the roots so your new hair shade lasts longer.

#25: Lixie Hair with Wispy Layers

A pixie haircut, firmly shaped, feels like a bob due to its layers and texture. This style helps if you have fine hair, as it adds volume. Keep the hair longer over the ear and maintain a sweeping fringe if you prefer hair around your face. After drying your hair, apply a texturing product to add separation. Try using products such as dry shampoo and hairspray because oil-based products may weigh your hair down.

#29: Long Pixie Cut for Wavy Hair

A long pixie cut for wavy hair is a great choice, especially if you would rather have a little bit more length than a traditional pixie.

A long pixie with feathered layers is the perfect example of flattering short haircuts for women over 70.

A shorter cut is also less time-consuming to style, and tapering in the nape gets rid of even more hair. If your hair is a medium texture with some body, you might be able to air dry. For finer hair textures, use a volume-building product and blow-dry with your hands for the best finish.

Fine hair ladies should try a choppy pixie cut if you’re looking for a trendier style. Ask your stylist to layer your hair but leave some wispy length around the perimeter.
