Hairstyles for Women over 60: How to Wear Your Hair As You Age Gracefully

Explore different hairstyles for women over 60

Many people often despair as they get older. For some reason they believe that aging means you can't wear the same clothes that you wore in your youth, and, shockingly, that you're unable to enjoy a varied selection of hairstyles either. For men it might be understandable – male pattern baldness is fairly common after all and really reduces options for guys when it comes to choosing a hairstyle – but the only thing limiting hairstyles for women over 60 is your imagination! Below we'll take a look at some of the options available to you if you're over 60 and still want to look amazing.

Less is more

Short hairstyles for women over 60 are a great staple for anyone looking to take years off of their look. They're great for getting rid of any excess hair that might come to look tangled and unkempt. Another great thing about short haircuts for women over 60 is that they're so varied, meaning there are a number of different styles you can adopt while still enjoying your hair short. These include the pixie cut and a blunt razor bob. Of course, you're not limited to these two, but they're a good starting point for the uninitiated.

Updos

There's a small camp of people who believe that long hair shouldn't be worn by older women – we firmly believe that's nonsense. Long hair works incredibly well in hairstyles for 60-year-olds and beyond, but that doesn't mean it always has to be worn down. For times when long hair is better tucked away, the updo is ideal. This hairstyle for women over 60 is elegant and suited for almost any look, whether it's a casual lunch or fancy dinner.

Curls

Curls are a fun and youthful look

Anyone who says that you're too old for curly hairstyles is either jealous that they don't have curls themselves or plain crazy. Regardless of age, curly hair lends itself well to any hairstyle, and is something that should be embraced no matter your style. That being said, mid-length curls are always a great option if you're lucky enough to have naturally curly hair and can't decide which length is good for you. It's a hairstyle for women of 60 which will always frame the face beautifully and works well with any hair color from gray to red hairstyles.
