Growing old means different things to different women. But, no matter what age you are, there is this part of every woman that wants to look fabulous despite everything. Contrary to the belief that age makes you less beautiful the salt and pepper of your hair and the fine lines on your face can actually add to your all-knowing mature beauty.
Some choose to dye their hair while others want to enjoy the natural beauty of their graying hair. And many prefer wearing their hair short to feel lighter, to look elegant or both. Here are some fabulous ideas for short hairstyles that will help you make the most of the crowning glory that is your hair.
Best Short Hairstyles For Older Women
Simple Short Cropped Hair
A short cropped is the simplest hairstyle there is. Get the burden of bearing the weight of long hair off your head and welcome the cheerful sight of yourself with shortened hair.
With this simple hairstyle you don’t have to worry about how to wear your hair, how to shampoo it or even how to take care of it. Just part your hair at your left and go about being the best of who you are.
Pixie cut has always been there and famous among the aging bold fashionable women. Even though many a young celebrity recently took it for herself, the pixie cut will always belong to the graceful generations. So don’t turn your back on the pixie cut and give yourself another chance at looking great as always.
Blow-Waved Layered Cut
If you need a softer and easier look go for a layered cut and blow-wave your hair. You can choose any length for your layer cut: two inches, three inches, anywhere in between or even less than that depending on your taste and what suits best for your features.
Blow-waving your hair also doesn’t need much work or styling. If you need variety or bored of simple waves, you can try curling or just straightening it and combing it to one side.
Remember Helen Mirren and her fringed chin-length silvery bobs? She has always looked great with her little hairstyles, though now and then she grew them long or dyed them pink.
Fringed bobs are versatile. They can fit in any occasion either formal or informal, go with any dress you wear, require very less maintenance (just simple brushing or straightening) and will help frame your face.
Going asymmetric isn’t just for the adventurously young or emo. It is one of the hairstyles that will look great despite the age.
You can try a short asymmetric cut and then wear it straightened or styled to be voluminous and a little spiky. This style looks great with whole white hair or you can have your hair bleached to a desired tint.
Messy Soft Curls
Turn the old fashioned short hair curls into something trendier and becoming of your inner reigning queen by getting a messy look. The advantage of making the curls messy is that it gives a bold softness to your facial features unlike normal sharp curls that stand out. They will in fact make you look younger than you really are.
