Are you over 60 and wear glasses? Older women often feel like there’s only a limited amount of short hair ideas out there. Today, I’m going to open your eyes to see trendy new ideas that will help you clearly find your next short hairdo!
Unlike some cuts for young hipsters, there are plenty of short hairstyles for women over 60 with glasses. Just have a look at female celebs who have already flaunted the hair idea, such as Jane Lynch and Helen Mirren!
There are two main things to consider when choosing your short hairstyle: the glasses you wear and your lifestyle. “Sometimes, certain styles around the face don’t work with the frames,” says professional stylist Sylvia York of Georgia. When it comes to lifestyle, a key question to answer York says to answer is “do you have a regime or are you a wash-and-go kind of gal?”
Committing to short hair means more maintenance. York goes on to explain that if you don’t know how to, or don’t want to style shorter hair, it probably will not work for you. You must be willing to come to the salon every 4-6 weeks for trims.
So before your next hair appointment, check out these inspiring photos of short haircuts for women over 60 with glasses.
Brushed Up Pixie Cut
If you just can’t stand hair on your forehead, you should try a bushed-up pixie cut. Ask your stylist for short hair all around, but be aware the sides might need to be left longer so your eyewear doesn’t make them stick out. Thick-sided eyeglasses can sometimes be problematic. Having said that, the brushed-up fringe will work wonderfully to accommodate your glasses, and a short cut is so easy to style.
Grey Pixie Bob for Coarse Hair
This modern grey pixie bob for coarse hair will reveal your natural facial features. Plus, it will work to define them. The low-maintenance cut makes it the best for those who don’t have enough time to fuss with styling. Add some texture spray or light wax to keep your strands looking fresh all day! To complete this trendy look, opt for subtle highlights around the face. That way, they won’t overpower the style. I recommend using a texture wave dry finishing spray for a beachy wave finish.
Beautiful Golden Highlights on a Short Bob
If you’re a woman in your 60s and looking for a great way to give yourself a glow, try a warmer tone of blonde. Also, consider a short cut that is best for you. Your aging hair needs extra attention to look its best. This hairstyle will work well with most face shapes. Those who have thinning hair may find this style suits them especially well. To get the perfect balance of volume and texture, use a Kenra Root Lifting Spray 13 before styling. It will add hold without weighing your locks down.
Dark Auburn Feathered Bob
Your best bet for embracing your aging hair is to try seasonal looks. For example, a dark auburn feathered bob. It keeps the style fresh, with your interest towards the best color for the length.
Youthful Side-Swept Bob Cut
If you’re a more mature woman and want an edgier cut without exposing your ears, try a long pixie cut. Because you’ll have shorter textured layers it won’t weigh down a long face. Do we dare say, it may make you look 10 years younger? As long as you maintain the cut every 4-6 weeks, it won’t lose its shape and the longer sides won’t look heavy.
Short Stacked Bob
A short bob is a great cut for women that love shape and volume. The layers are “stacked” meaning they are cut to hold up the hair above in a pattern that creates natural volume. A stacked bob will need to be short in order to create the layered stacking effect. Style with a blow dryer and a Denman or flat brush.
Ear-Length Soft Bob with Side-Swept Bangs
Keep your locks soft and subtle with an ear-length bob with side-swept bangs. If you have aging hair, cutting the deadends off will make your hair look healthier. A short bob is easy to manage and is flattering on all different face shapes. If you can, get your hair cut every 4-6 weeks. This will keep your cut looking fresh and in shape.
Chestnut Brown Sassy Shag
If you’re searching for an urban style, try a chestnut brown shag. Ask you stylist for lots of layers but make sure to leave length in the back and around the ears. Adding a short bang gives even more strength to this cut and also compliments women who wear glasses. Style this shape easily with some hair putty, keeping a messy vibe.
Dark Red Pixie with Side-Swept Baby Fringe
A sassy look is a pixie with a side-swept baby fringe. We love a deep, rich red color and the way that color can really showcase a pixie in a high-fashion way. A side baby fringe is a great add-on to shape/ contour the face. Styling will be minimal, use a heat-protective cream before blow-drying. Finish with a glossing hairspray.
Salt and Pepper French Bob with Straight-Across Bangs
A French bob, paired with straight-across bangs is a very geometric cut. The best face shape for a short bob is oval since the angles accentuate your facial features.
Sleek Bob with Fringe
A bob with a fringe is an edgy short haircut for mature women who are not quite ready for their hair rollers. A fringe can compliment several face shapes and can build a beautiful frame for glasses. When considering a bob, remember that while minimal, some styling may be required in order to keep a sleek and clean-looking hairstyle.
Textured Bob with Bangs
Try a textured bob with bangs if you have straight fine hair, and are seeking more movement. A mature bob with bangs hides forehead lines and bring a youthful glow to women over 60. Apply REF Fiber Mousse to the roots and ends and blow-dry for extra volume.
Very Short Spiky Pixie for 60+ Women
When choosing a very short spiky pixie for women over 60, look for something with extra definition on top. While the sides keep a flatness, ensure the top is molded into longer lengths. This enhances the fullness of the shape for thicker-looking hair.
Short Curly Hair Pixie for Older Women
A short curly hair pixie for older women works better, depending on the locks’ natural texture. Tresses that have natural-looking movement create a soft, effortless style. When jazzing it up, apply a balm or cream to give the curls a nice hold. The result is mesmerizing!
Layered Crop for Fine Haired Seniors in Their 60s
A layered crop for fine-haired seniors over 60 offers a fuller, voluminous style. The layers create a lift, giving the fine hair an illusion of density. It’s the texture at the top that adds height and matches a round face.
