The best pixie haircuts for women over 60 with fine hair create a fuller, more voluminous style. These are short in length but are versatile to any shape and texture.
Florida-based salon owner and stylist Kymber Palmer share her take on a pixie cut. “It looks incredibly intentional and more “put together” than a stringy bob or a long shag,” she states.
Consider your natural texture when opting for a short haircut for fine hair if you’re over 60. Don’t even look for straight, sleek pixies if you have naturally curly or wavy hair. The result will look different, and you’ll feel disappointed instead.
Maintenance is essential when wearing pixie haircuts for fine hair for women in their 60s. Palmer states, “Expect to get your hair cut every 4-6 weeks. Buy your stylist’s recommended styling products to recreate the look at home!”
When styling, you can push the front layers forward to serve as bangs. Or sweep to the side to create a side part style. If you brush your hair up, you can also come up with an edgy faux hawk or pompadour look!
During the consultation, be honest about your morning routine.
“If you’re a wash-and-go kind of a woman, don’t commit to a style that requires more than a blow-dry and style-aid. A styling routine that doesn’t suit your lifestyle will guarantee a big fat flop on your pixie cut journey,” Palmer explains.
It’s never too late to switch up your look. Here are the photos of the trendiest pixie haircuts for women over 60 with fine hair!
#1: Voluminous Pixie Style for Women Aged 60 with White Hair
A white voluminous pixie is for women 60 and above. A classic style for women that enjoy volume to their hair. A little sprite of root booster, one-inch round brush, or curling iron will give you the lift needed for volume in your pixie. Ask your stylist to help fill sparse hairlines with a side bang or parting.
#2: Pixie Hair with Long Bangs for Ladies Over 60
Opt for a pixie cut with long swept bangs on ladies over 60. Long textured pixies and bangs are beautiful for shaping round, square, and long faces. Great for fine hair and easy to style with a medium-size Denman or 1-inch round brush.
#3: Pixie Mullet for Grandmas with Wavy Hair
Consider a wavy pixie mullet for grandmas. Celebrate natural wavy textures with a pixie mullet. Soft tendrils around the face and hairline for a romantic vibe. Easy to apply texture cream or spray and let air dry completely before fluffing up.
#4: Thin Wispy Pixie for a Square Face
If you’re a more mature woman with finer hair, consider a modern pixie haircut. The shorter layers give a fuller appearance. The short cut removes weighing down your facial features. Don’t forget to ask your stylist to teach you styling tips and tricks. One of my favorites is Kenra 6 dry texture spray to give a more define look.
#5: Grey Pixie Hair with Asymmetrical Bangs
A pixie haircut with asymmetrical bangs on grey hair is great for 60-year-olds. Bangs that sweep across the forehead work great on most face shapes and the finest hairlines. To soften a pixie and create a feminine style, ask your stylist to cut texture in your hair that you can sweep forward around your face.

#6: Short Textured Pixie with Crown Layers
Consider a short textured pixie with crown layers. Layered hair in your crown works great with hair growth patterns and cowlicks to give the right amount of body for fine hair. An easy cut to style with a quick round brush or a few crown curls with a one-inch iron and a whisper of hairspray to hold in place.
#7: Super Short Pixie with Tapered Sides
Go for a super short pixie with tapered sides if you want to look 10 years younger. A sassy cut that is easy to style with a pea-size amount of styling cream. A great cut for fine hair and the minimalist. A higher maintenance length will bring you into the salon every 3-5 weeks.
#8: Copper Pixie Hair with Layers and Bangs
Opt for a layered copper pixie cut with bangs. Layered pixies help achieve volume and texture on fine hair. Adding some color to the hair will also boost up some volume by roughing up the cuticle a bit. Easily styled with a flat brush, root booster, and over-directing the hair while blow-drying. Finish the style off with a little matte or satin paste to show off the texture.
#9: Soft Pixie Haircut with Side Bangs on Older Women
A soft pixie haircut with side bangs for older women over 60 is a great option. A wispy pixie is great for older women and softens lines around the face. A side bang that flows with your natural hairline and part makes for effortless styling. Ask your stylist to leave width at the temples if you need to balance and design to pear & triangle face shapes.
#10: Classic Pixie with Side-Swept Bangs on Mature Women
Consider a classic pixie with side-swept bangs for mature women. A very short style that requires appointments every 4-6 weeks to maintain. Side bangs add a feminine aesthetic and help bring out the lines while softening the forehead in 60-year-olds with wrinkles.
#11: Tousled Pixie Shag with a Fringe
Ask your stylist for a tousled pixie shag with a fringe. A soft crop with natural texture is the perfect pixie shag. Great for sixty-year-old women with wavy and curly hair that like the ease of wash and go. Ask your stylist to leave tendrils around the face and hairline to give a tousled effortless style.
#12: Short Crop with Side Bangs for 60-Year-Old Women
A short crop haircut with side bangs is suitable for 60-year-old women. A sassy lady at any age can pull off a short crop with a shaved undercut. A heavy side parting with layers gives height and body to the hair and is great for round face shapes.
#13: Icy Blonde Short Haircut with Wispy, Micro Bangs
Opt for a short icy blonde haircut with wispy micro bangs. Classic pixies are amazing for fine hair by adding volume and texture. They can be made modern, edgy, or classic by changing up the bangs. A square face shape works well with an inverted micro bang by rounding off the hairline.
#14: Long Pixie with an Undercut for Straight Hair
Long pixies for straight hair with an undercut can be made edgy by piercing out or more sophisticated with a simple styling brush to create waves and curves. Undercuts are great for weight removal and shaping a long or short pixie.
#15: Sleek Pixie Cut for Salt-And-Pepper Hair
Go for a sleek pixie on salt-and-pepper colored hair. Fine, wavy, or straight hair works best with a sleek pixie. Easily styled with a comb and gel or texture cream. You can shape a hairline that may be on the finer side with a sleek pixie. Great for the wash and go styler who wants a confident look.
#16: Pixie Cut with Stacked Layers for Grey Hair
Consider a pixie cut with stacked layers on grey hair. Soft grey hair can be made fuller with stacked layers and create a beautiful round shape. Great for face shapes that need either some corners to soften the hairline or width added at the temple.
#17: Short Side-Swept Pixie for Fine, Silver Hair
A short silver pixie with a side-swept fringe is for the edgy and artistic individual. Cut with scissors over comb to create softness and tapering. Pixie haircuts are great for women over sixty with fine hair and a side-swept bang to soften the forehead and fine lines.

#18: Side-Parted Pixie for Black Women with Natural Curls
Opt for a natural curly pixie hairstyle with a side part for older women. Natural curls or perms work great with a soft pixie by giving a soft body and shape to the style. A side part gives a beautiful asymmetrical shape and suits most face shapes well. Styling with a moisture cream and set spray makes styling very manageable and effortless for finer hair.
#19: Short Layered Pixie with Thin Bangs
Go for a short layered pixie with thin bangs if you’re over sixty years old. Thin bangs and layers that fall forward lay nicely with the direction of hair growth. Pixies are great for balancing face profiles that are convex and give some height to the fringe area by using a round brush or curling iron.
