36 Most Ideal Hairstyles for Women Over 60 with Glasses

Cindy Marcus Hairstylist, Editor-in-Chief

The most flatting haircuts and hairstyles for women over 60 with glasses are designed with added volume, texture, and layers. The ideal styles are easy to prep in the morning and would suit most face shapes.

Shania Tan, a stylist from Chicago, identifies her best go-to look for older ladies who wear frames. “A shoulder-length bob cut is a versatile choice. It’s not too long, and not too short either, which makes it very easy to manage,” she states.

Such a mid-length cut could turn into any ‘do. Bring it up in a ponytail, a half-up and half-down style, or you can leave it as it is with some face-framing layers.

The only downside of this hair trend affects ladies with textured tresses. Tan points out how this hair type acts on exposure to humidity, causing frizz.

Consultation helps you achieve your hair goal. Discuss the best haircuts for over 60 with glasses that would enhance your facial features and match your hair texture. Show a picture of your preferred look to your stylist, ensuring you’re on the same page.

Be knowledgeable about the after-care routine. “Ask what products are good for protecting your hair from any kind of damage,” Tan suggests.

You can pull off the Barbie blonde loose curls look particularly well. It works best on long hair. The curls are flattering for women with natural curls.

To style your hair, apply some mousse or curl-enhancing cream. Then, let your hair dry naturally or speed up the process with a diffuser.

Try these babylights on a medium-length cut if you want a low-maintenance look! The dimension gives so much depth to this look. If you are interested in this look, I suggest you talk with your stylist at your next salon visit to go over your options.

Defined loose curls can be a great option if you wear glasses. This hairstyle offers a touch of playfulness and movement to aging hair. And it still allows for a more mature appearance. Ask for a defined loose curl look. It’s important to keep the layers light and uniform. This will make your hair appear thicker and fuller.

#8: Gorgeous Off Center Part on a Shoulder-Length Bob

Consider a shoulder-length bob with a gorgeous off-center part. A longer bob is very versatile. You can curl it, wear it up, or down. Be aware of your style and how it will look if you wear glasses. It’s beneficial to have a side part of you have a round, pear, or long face shape.

#9: Icy Messy Bob Cut with Layers
