Hairstyles For Over 60

One might think that appearance is a concern of only the young, more so of women so this might come across as a surprise that even women in their 60s give appearance a lot of thought. It becomes a more important matter of concern since now they have lost that age when they could have worn anything and it would go with them.

Women in their 60′s definitely know what suits them best because, it goes without saying that they have had an experience of 60 full years! But a change of hairstyle harms no one and yet manages to give a feeling of newness in life.  The right colour and the right hair cut can make one seem younger than they actually are.

A couple of things that should be kept in mind while choosing the perfect hair cut are your hair texture and the shape of your face. Whether you have a long face or a round face is a very deciding factor for your hair cut. So is the texture of your hair. A person having straight hair will look good in a different cut than one with frizzy hair.

There are many wonderful hairstyles to choose from.

Based on general analysis there are a few Hairstyles For Women Over 60 that are slightly more popular than the others with.

a) The Pixie cut spotlights the face. Dame Judi Dench has been using this cropped cut for years and looks great. Her pixie is great for gray, textured hair and is very much a wash-and-wear low maintenance look.

b) Cropped Bob: This hairstyle is really suited for ladies with high cheekbones. All you need to do is go for a cut that just stops below your jaw line and give it a few choppy layers. Keep the layers long if you have a round face. The tousled hair look will make you look quite youthful. A slight side parting looks great as well.

c) Shaggy Lob: This is the hairstyle that Diane Keaton sports and looks absolutely amazing with it. To achieve this hairstyle you need to cut your hair just above your shoulders with long layers at the sides and the back. This gives it a naturally messy look which is best suited for those with thick or curly hair who do not enjoy spending a lot of time in front of the mirror fixing their hair. It looks good even with a wash-and-go. However it might not be the best hairstyle for those with very fine hair. It will not be able to hold the messy look of the hairstyle.

d) Mid-length with a Heavy Side Sweep: This kind of hairstyle is perfect for those wishing to give themselves the classic sexy look. Also it is a good cut for those wanting to hide their foreheads. The hair length is till the collarbones and must have light layers at the bottom. The side sweep gives a fresh feeling. This hairstyle gives a fuller look and makes the hair look bouncy. The ends can be curled inward or outward to give a playful look.

e) Long and Layered: For those looking for a hair cut but still wanting to maintain a good length a layer cut is what might be best suited for you. A layer cut with a slight feathering around the cheekbones will soften the angularity of your face. The feathering helps the bangs to blend in. It gives a softer look to the face with the wavy and feathered hair.

For those with straight hair, it is always a safe bet to go with a long bob. An A-line long bob would be even better which means that the front will be longer than the back. This hairstyle only means hair to enhance the straight texture of the hair and gives an illusion of length.

So, this just makes us realize that the topic of Hairstyles For Women Over 60 is not a ridiculous matter at all. Perhaps people will now begin to appreciate that even in their matured age these women have not given up on looking beautiful and presentable and not succumbed to the “grandmother” look.
