#1: Butterfly Hairstyle

A butterfly-layered hairstyle is making a comeback. A gorgeous style for your hair if you have medium to thick hair density. Ask your stylist for butterfly layers if you love soft and flowing layers. A classic style that dates back to the Farrah Faucet days. It’s great for older gals who want to bring out their eyes and cheekbones.

#2: Soft Bob with Textured Bangs

When considering a new look, try a soft bob with textured bangs to add a little spunk to your style. Shorter styles are associated with older generations. But, they don’t have to be the same haircut for every woman. With a bob, style it with soft waves to show off the movement in your haircut and give a nice contrast with the bangs.

#3: Low-Maintenance Gray Pixie

Older women should try out a low-maintenance pixie haircut. A healthy chop can truly transform your look and make day-to-day styling easier. However, avoid waiting too long between appointments as pixie haircuts can lose their shape quickly.

Sleek chin-length bob with bangs on grey hair for older women.

#4 The Layered Haircut

Revamp your look with this sleek chin-length bob, a testament to timeless grace and easy upkeep. The uniform grey enhances consistency, offering a chic, vibrant touch to natural aging hair. Ideal for medium-density locks, this cut boasts a fringe that elegantly frames oval-shaped faces, drawing attention to the eyes and softening features. While this style is low-maintenance, consider the need for periodic straightening to maintain its crisp edge. It’s an exquisite choice for those seeking sophistication without the fuss.

#5: Soft Auburn French Bob

A cropped, soft auburn French bob adds just the right amount of warmth to your hairstyle. To keep your hair sharp, be sure to book regular trim and touch-up appointments.

#6: Short Round Haircut with Platinum Blonde Color

A short round bob with blonde hair color is beautiful on older women. To help your hair appear fuller, blonde tones and short crops are often used. Platinum, for instance, is the perfect hue to make your hair appear thicker.

#7: Short Textured Hair with Layers and Balayage

If you have wrinkles, you may love short textured hair with layers and balayage. This life-giving style is a great way to offset signs of aging and add some warmth to your look.

#8: Off Center Brunette Lob with a Purple Money Piece

An off-center brunette lob paired with a purple money piece is perfect for women who want to compliment their hair type. When opting for a money piece style, be sure to choose a color that compliments your skin tone since money pieces will sit right against your face.

Tousle your look with a wispy bob cut with razored layers. This wonderful take on short tresses looks extra stunning with expertly placed highlights.

#10: Short Messy Concave Bob

Update your style with a short messy concave bob. You will love the cool shape of the tapered nape and the longer sides. The layers are perfect for creating volume or blow drying smooth. You can even style your pixie bob with a curling iron for a dressy option. Try this short cut and let your hair come alive.

#11: Short Choppy Hair with Blonde Highlights and Lowlights

Create a new you and try short choppy hair with blonde highlights and lowlights. Have your stylist foil your hair with highlights and lowlights at the same time for a beautiful color transition. To achieve the piece-y finish, apply hairspray to each section as you curl mid-shaft, leaving the ends out. You’ll be ready to party with your new funky hairdo.

#12: Razor Cut Layers on Short White Hair

Try a razor-cut wedge with layers paired with classic white hair color. For thick hair, a razor cut really helps take away some weight and add movement and body to your hair. Consider your fave profile and ask your stylist how to balance your face shape with the right cut and volume. I would use a wax pomade to style and piece out the texture after a beautiful razor cut to show off the layers and create some separation in your hair.

#13: Mid-Length Swoopy Layers with See-Through Bangs

I appreciate the way these swoopy layers and see-through bangs take a mid-length cut from frumpy to youthful. It’s a statement-making style, using soft, chunky layers to enhance the natural beauty of your face. This hairstyle offers more flexibility and options than you might think. With this look, you can comb the corners of your bangs backward for extra dimension and a shape that flows.

#14: Feathery Pixie with Crown Layers

When looking for a good hairstyle try a feathery pixie to keep it light and fun. A great inspiration for this cut is Jamie Lee Curtis, she has the feathered look with her pixie, but make sure to ask your stylist for layers in the crown area. The crown layers will give your hair the extra volume and light look needed for the cut. Style your pixie with pomade and take a piece of hair and twist to give some separation but add a little bit of texture.

Dimensional Medium-Length Grey Hair with Loose Waves for Old Women

#15: Dimensional Medium-Length Grey Hair with Loose Waves

Styling your hair with loose curls is an elegant way to show off your natural highlight. Rest assured, this color will not make you look older but will allow you to wear your hair in a stylish age-appropriate way.

#16: Center Part Waves on Copper Hair

Copper hair looks great styled with a center part and waves. Copper hair is tantalizing to women who have a warm skin tone. The amount of time you spend on your hair care will determine the longevity of your color. The maintenance level will consist of salon visits every 6-10 weeks.

#19: High Stacked Cut with a Warm Blonde Shade

A high-stacked cut with a warm blonde shade is definitely a head-turner. The sharp angle from the back to the front help give the illusion of a longer neck. The undercut helps to round out the back to give you more room for your angle. Warmer blonde colors are a good transition during the fall or prep for going darker.

#20: Salt-and-Pepper Lob with Subtle Layers

Salt and pepper hair pairs beautifully with a lob cut with subtle layers. Remember that if you have dry hair, it’s best to keep it short to avoid breakage. This is why I recommend bobs to my clients who are turning grey. You can embrace your locks and look trendy and youthful at the same time!

Youthful Inverted Bob with Feathery Layers for an Older Lady
Instagram @lexiisalonego

#21: Youthful Inverted Bob with Feathery Layers

You should consider a soft inverted bob with feathery layers. An inverted bob is a great length, and the feathering gives you the versatility of brushing your cut backward or forwards. A medium round brush will help you blow dry your style in the direction you desire. Smoothing serum and a curling iron will get rid of those pesky flyaways. Don’t be worried about your face shape, because an inverted bob is complimentary to almost everyone.

Younger-Looking Graduated Bob on Brunette Hair for Older Women

#22: Younger-Looking Graduated Bob on Brunette Hair

If you are searching for a stylish shape, try a graduated bob on your brunette hair. A bob cut will make you look younger and is easy to maintain. You can choose chin-length or a bit longer, so opt for the length that will work for you. I suggest leaving the layers on the longer side for the most modern shape. You will be inspiring others with your new brunette bobbed hairdo.

Sleek Chin-Length Bob with Side-Swept Bangs for Old Women
Instagram @runwaysaloncda

#23: Sleek Chin-Length Bob with Side-Swept Bangs

You should consider a sleek chin-length bob with side-swept bangs. To get the side-swept bangs, ask your stylist for a fringe that is longer in the corner, which will give you the best shape. Invest in a good medium round brush and blow dryer and try directing your fringe toward the corner of your eye when styling. You should apply products such as Olaplex’s Nourishing Hair Serum for heat protection and incredible shine.

Medium-Long Blonde Hair with Long Side Bangs for Old Women
Instagram @lipe.colorhair

#24: Medium-Long Blonde Hair with Long Side Bangs

Medium-long hair paired with long side bangs is a sophisticated, classy look. Give your mane a bold update with blonde chunky highlights, and talk to your hairdresser about the best shades of blonde for your complexion. Longer hairstyles look best when bangs are added to frame the face instead of dragging it down. So add some side bangs and give your long hair a needed lift.

Nape Undercut on Long Pixie Hair for Older Women
Instagram @bormannjr

#25: Nape Undercut on Long Pixie Hair

Dare to change up your hair game with a nape undercut on long pixie hair. I like to join the undercut back to the sides, which will show off your pretty features and complexion. The inverted back strengthens your shape and is a fabulous addition to the cut. Getting your haircut every 4 weeks would be beneficial and will keep your style looking sharp.

Trendy Bixie Cut with Front Layers for Older Ladies
Instagram @__sheargenius

#26: Trendy Bixie Cut with Front Layers

Consider trying a bixie cut to really frame your jawline. Add in some front layers that sweep across your forehead to frame your face. Great examples of famous bixie cuts are Selma Blair and Frankie Bridge.

#27: Warm Honey Blonde on Straight Hair

Let your hair shine with a warm honey blonde if you have straight hair. A smooth hairstyle reflects the light and promotes shine. You’ll love a face-framing layer hitting your cheekbones and adding interest to a long haircut. As a cute option, try pulling your hair half up, leaving the shorter front out. No worries if you have wavy hair, you can achieve this look by using a flat iron.

#28: Mid-Length Feathered Hair with Soft Waves

A mid-length look with feathered ends and soft waves is a style we love for volume and movement. The best hairstyles for mature women bring a slim look to your face, and with these textured layers, this style is perfect if you have a round face shape. Use a curling iron and add some loose curls for a voluminous look on any hair type.

Ginger Long Hair with Full Bangs for Old Ladies
Instagram @noelsyart

#29: Ginger Long Hair with Full Bangs

Ginger long hair paired with full bangs is great for women of older ages. With a copper base, add highlights and lowlights if you’re looking for more dimension and depth. Different tones on the highlights like copper, red, and strawberry make longer hair appear more youthful and natural.

#30: Voluminous Side-Swept Pixie with a Shaved Side

Rock a voluminous side-swept pixie with a shaved side if you’re at an older age. Look at all the amazing volume. To achieve all the volume you’ll want to prep your tresses with a root lift and blow dry away from your scalp. You might want to use a flat iron, taking each section toward the sky, rounding slightly as you near the ends. Finish with a texturizing spray and a high-hold hairspray.

Short Angled Haircut with Textured Ends for an Old Woman
Instagram @thefrizzytart

#31: Short Angled Haircut with Textured Ends

A short angled haircut with textured ends is a timeless and classic style. For this style, find a stylist who knows how to cut with a razor. Every stylist isn’t comfortable or knowledgeable in razor cutting. Razor cutting pairs well with this style because the razor makes it easier to cut the rounded shape and add texture at the same time, which is a time-saving bonus.

#32: Blonde Bob with Bangs and Teased Crown

A blonde bob with bangs and teased crown is a great hairstyle for thick hair or hair that needs some height. Adding volume on top enhances your facial features but draws the viewer’s eye up. Try styling your short bob with volume mousse or spray before blow drying for maximum lift.

#33: Sassy Wavy Bob with Face-Framing Highlights

Try a trendy new look with a wavy bob with face-framing highlights. A wavy lob is simply styled and is very low-maintenance. Try a warm highlight shade to brighten your complexion. For example, gold and yellow tones reflect light and bring brightness to your face and hair.

#34: Edgy Mullet with Spiky Crown Layers

An edgy mullet with spiky crown layers is an incredibly perfect way to spice up your style. Keeping the crown of your head short, allows your hair to stand up easier. Try to keep this edgy style low-maintenance by drying and then applying product right before heading out the door!

#35: Jaw-Length Curly Cut with Ringlets

Try this jaw-length curly cut with ringlets if you are looking for a head-turning style that will help in defining your natural texture. This stunning shape will grab the attention of anyone you walk by. The soft fringe and round silhouette compliment women with square faces and sharp jawlines.

#36: Short to Medium Bob with a Face Frame

A short to medium bob complemented by a face frame is a perfect transition from long hair to something a bit more manageable. While there are many factors to take into consideration when considering a haircut like this, a big one can be styling time and maintenance.

Side-Parted Wavy Pixie Haircut for Older Black Women
Instagram @bghrocks

#37: Side-Parted Wavy Pixie Haircut for Black Women

Try an asymmetrical soft wavy pixie. When getting older you may be considering a new look. I would recommend a shorter pixie for an easier-to-manage style. Going over your face shape is important for the right length and which side works well with your face and cowlicks.

Tapered Pixie with Piece-y Layers for Older Ladies
Instagram @gil.rouah

#38: Tapered Pixie with Piece-y Layers

Piece-y layers pair well with a tapered pixie to create a youthful and edgy cut. Sporting lots of layers and volume will add a youthful touch to your look.

#39: Loose Curls on Short Bobbed Hair

Loose curls on short bobbed hair are easy and stylish. This look is super slimming to round face shapes with soft tendrils surrounding the cheeks. If you update your style you’ll look great and you will feel excited about trying out your new cut. Embracing your natural hair texture is so liberating, but I highly recommend using a curl-enhancing product to keep your curls from frizzing.

Tousled Shaggy Waves with a Curtain Fringe for Old Ladies
Instagram @texturedpetite

#40: Tousled Shaggy Waves with a Curtain Fringe

Try a tousled shag haircut with a curtain fringe to give yourself a modern look! To soften the look, ask for curtain bangs around your cheekbone length to frame your face and have lots of texture throughout the layers. However, if you’re wanting to be bold, a shorter curtain fringe is definitely the way to go.

Shoulder-Length Curly Haircut with Curly Bangs for an Old Lady
Instagram @emistudiosalon

#41: Shoulder-Length Curly Haircut with Curly Bangs

A shoulder-length curly haircut with curly bangs is a hot trend right now. To achieve this look with defined curls, use a curl-enhancing cream, my favorite is Motion Lotion by Kevin Murphy. After applying the Motion Lotion product use a diffuser on your hairdryer to blow-dry your hair. A diffuser is a great tool that allows heat to dry your hair and can help against frizz.

#42: Voluminous Lob with Layered Waves

Why not update your shape to a voluminous lob with layered waves? If you decide to bring your length up you’ll be more in fashion and your hair will be healthier. Adding layers will make your style soft around your face and much easier to add volume. If you want lift in your crown, I suggest having your hair parted on one side. Middle parts tend to lay flatter on the head.

Layered Blowout Style with a Deep Side Part for Older Women
Instagram @adrianao_hair

#43: Layered Blowout Style with a Deep Side Part

When deciding on how to style your hair, try a side part cut deeply and a voluminous blowout if you have a layered cut. The voluminous style looks light and breezy when your hairstylist creates flowy bends in your hair. To amp up your look, add in a texture/volumizing spray to really give the layers more lift.

#44: Edgy Pompadour Pixie with Short Bangs

An edgy pompadour pixie with short bangs is a fun hairdo if you have an edgier personlity. Short choppy bangs are a great way to frame your face and accentuate eyes or glasses. Blow-dry the top up and away from your face, use a pomade to define the cut, and hold the style in place.

#45: Layered Long Bob for Thinner Hair

If you have thinner hair, a long layered bob can work for you. If your hair is limp and lifeless, bringing up the length will make your hair appear thicker and fuller. Spice up your look with some medium-length layers that can be curled, scrunched, or worn straight. I recommend cutting the front layers shorter to enable you to get more lift around your face.

Grey Blending for Older Women
Instagran @aaashleee

#46: Grey Blending

If you’re tired of constantly coloring over your pesky grey hair, try grey blending! It helps to find a stylist that specializes in hair color and grey blending but also feels comfortable working with your hair type. Not all grey hair is the same and sometimes can prove to be more difficult than others. Be prepared to make multiple visits to your hair salon if you have previously been coloring your hair at home or coloring it dark for a long time as this can be a process to achieve.

Cute Short Curly Hairstyle for Older Ladies

#47: Cute Short Curly Hairstyle

You should try a cute short curly hairstyle for its beauty and ease. Lucky you if you have natural waves, and if you don’t, consider a perm. The soft width of this shape complements any woman’s facial features. For the most modern shape, you’ll want the layers on the top a tiny bit longer. Make sure to apply a curl amplifier to sculpt curls and reduce frizz.

#48: Feminine Pixie Bob Haircut

A pixie bob haircut is a low-maintenance, easy-to-style haircut that works great for ladies your age. Short haircuts like the pixie bob give lots of volume to your hairstyle. Older women tend to prefer styles with volume because as hair ages it can lose its strength and natural volume. Limp hair can be easily lifted when it isn’t weighed down by excessive length.

The choppy pixie is another hair trend that’s made for women with thin, fine tresses. It has a shorter length to keep its fullness. Add bangs and you won’t go wrong. The fringe brings out an edgier, younger feel to it.

#59: The Trendy A-Line Bob

Here’s the trendy A-line bob that senior ladies must go for! The bob is simple yet gorgeous and is easy to manipulate. When aiming for a rounded, sleek style, it works better on straight locks. A tousled style can also be achieved. Just combine a little texture and a mist of salt spray.

It covers grey beautifully and has lots of shine.

French Bobs are a timeless, very versatile cut for all ages. They go great with all face shapes and most hair textures. You can add a little Tonik from Cult +King before styling with a round brush.

You can wear with your natural texture, curly, straight, beachy, piecey, or sleek. There are not many limits when it comes to this cut. Looks great, and is a look that never gets old!

This layered mid-length cut for women over 50 is low maintenance and ideal for women with busy lives. For styling, use a medium all-natural boar brush. This haircut is not for a woman who has tight curls, thin hair, and frizzy hair. It’s more for thick, wavy hair that lays heavy. The layering of the haircut adds height and volume to your hair. This helps if you have hair that tends to sit very heavy on the ends and flat on top. By adding layers to your hair, it adds volume and movement through your hair, so it has more shape and grows out well.
