Upgrading your style to flatter your new age and changing the way you wear your hair in terms of length, finish and color could be just what you need to regain your sense of beautiful self! Here are fifty hairstyles for women over 60 to inspire you.

From graying to changing textures and thinning hair – aging can be hard on your hair, which may be hard on your confidence. While there are treatments and hair care systems to benefit aging hair, sometimes you just need a fresh cut! Choose one of these:

1. Pixie Haircut for Women over 60. Pixie hairstyles are easily embraced by 60 year old women with different hair types. This low maintenance style requires very little styling.

2. Gray Layered Bob. There are tons of movement and dimension to take advantage of in a cut like this. A simple home blow-dry is enough to produce a beautiful textured style.

3. Gray Layered Long Bob. In search of hairstyles for women over 60 that offer much volume to thin hair? Angled layers towards the back do this trick. The somewhat elongated shape of the lob hairstyle has a cute trendy feel. Accessorize with fancy glasses to complete the cool and classy lady look.

4. Mid-Length Wavy Gray Bob. This is one of the hairstyles for women over 60 that keep it simple. However, you will not go unnoticed as the hairdo oozes elegance and emphasizes your natural beauty.

5. Wedge Haircut for Women over 60. Wedge haircuts are a contemporary take on the traditional pixies and bobs. This example is longer than a classic pixie, a great combination of wedge and bob!

6. Medium Salt and Pepper Haircut. Medium hairstyles with long layers are very versatile. They can suit pretty much any hair type – curly hair, wavy hair, or straight strands. Straight hairstyles with layers never look limp or lifeless.

7. Gray Blending for Thin Hair. Apart from adding fullness to the front with the deep yet light bangs, this haircut melts sandy blonde into natural silver to create dimension in the thin strands and camouflage gray roots as they grow out.

8. Short Bob with Highlights. A super short bob is the perfect in between: a little bit longer than your traditional crop cut and shorter than your classic bob. This haircut is better suited to straight haired ladies.

9. Wavy Buttery Blonde Lob. These before and after pictures show how the face is instantly illuminated by the glossy blonde with a hint of warmth and the fine hair is volumized by the loose waves and swoopy front.

10. Shoulder-Length Haircut with Layers. What haircuts for 60 year old women do we usually see around the Internet? Boring one-tone pixies? Bobs that all look the same? No way! We choose to be different! The proper layering makes medium hair a pretty good alternative to shorter haircuts.

11. Airy Layers with Shiny Highlights. Layers do a great job of bringing movement into hairstyles for women over 60, and bright highlights placed atop gray coverage enhance the effect and fill the tresses with healthy shine.

12. Rounded Bob for Older Women. If people around you still joke about the ‘not your grandma’s bob’, just smile and choose this classic bob hairstyle during your next visit to the salon. The shape is classic, but the feel is different thanks to the side bangs and soft highlights. This bob will inspire others to cut their hair asap.

13. Straight Blunt Cut Bob. The pin straight, blunt cut bob is professional and gorgeous in its own simple way. The delicate golden blonde balayage with pale highlights throughout complements this modest style.

14. Shaggy Bob Hairstyle. If you need to add volume to thinning hair but don’t want to look too matronly, try a short shaggy cut with playful wispy bangs. It’s got the volume and fashionable flair you want. Add a touch of blonde babylights for subtle glamor.

15. Swoopy Layers and Bangs. Here is a gorgeous long bob hairstyle that can really keep you looking good and young. The textured layers with feathered ends on golden brown balayage hair create breathtaking movement for this hairstyle.

16. Feathered Pixie for Women over 60. Pixies are easy, low-maintenance, and swanky hair styles for older women with thinning hair. Sounds like something you’ve been looking for? The pixie hairstyle below is just for you then. The soft feathers make this haircut look even more adorable.

17. Silver Gray Hair Transition. The top Instagram colorists advise embracing grays in haircuts for women over 60. Ashy, silver, and platinum shades are sophisticated and need less maintenance if you already have grays.

18. Youthful Curly Hairstyle. If your hair is naturally on the curly side, that’s a big plus. If not, no big deal, you can easily curl it. Curls always add body and volume to all hair types and textures. Just remember that short and medium-length curly hair boasts more body than long curls. Sprinkle in some highlights for a luscious and robust look.

19. Stacked Wavy Lob. Short hairstyles for women over 60 can be fun! Look at those messy waves, partial highlights, layers, and a flattering shape. Despite its quirkiness, this lob fits not only casual but also formal occasions.

20. Messy Lob with a Side Part. This is the queen of low-maintenance hairstyles for women over 60. The messy lob doesn’t require much styling. Besides, if you decide to keep your natural gray hair color, you won’t have to worry about the roots.

21. Bob with Short Layers and a Wispy Finish. Ladies with thicker hair can afford many layers without their strands feeling sparse while keeping the whole style feathery rather than choppy with a wispy finish like this.

22. Silver Rounded Bob Cut. Whether you are in search of hairstyles for very thin hair over 60 or a lucky lady with thick locks, there is one hair trend that will suit you anyway. Gray hair! Don’t hide your grays. They can be actually working for you. Those shiny silver tresses are gracefully gorgeous and elegant. The reason why younger ladies are in love with gray highlights. A classic bob in a silvery shade is amazeballs.

23. Classic Hairstyle for over 60. That’s what we mean when we are talking about modern bob haircuts for women over 60. A soft long fringe swept to the side and blonde babylights transform the classic (and sometimes a bit boring) haircut into a popular choice for women of all ages, not just seniors.

24. Mid-Length Gray Hair. While some believe haircuts for women over 60 should be short, other ladies choose longer styles. After all, the shoulder-length silver hair looks incredible! Another good news is that it visually elongates a round face.

25. Wavy Bob Shag with Bangs. A shag haircut with soft waves features tousled, textured strands, and these add fullness to your hair. Pair your shaggy bob with a cute fringe for a fresh, youthful feel. Can bangs make you look younger? Yeap!

26. Midi Gray Shag with Flared Ends. The magical feel of the hair fanning out around the neck creates the desired thickness. Combine with uneven layers and face-framing pieces, and you have an amazing hairstyle for confident senior women.

27. Short Feathered Bob. Are you up for an exciting hairdo? For seniors who love experiments, adding highlights and lowlights is a great idea. Don’t be afraid of contrasting hues and layers because they can deliver a perfect combo.

28. Hairstyle for Women over 60 with Thin Hair. The boyish pixie with a longer length produces a balanced look. The mousy brown hair color further softens the hairstyle.

29. Sleek Creamy Crop with Face Framing. Unlike sharp polished bobs often seen on younger girls, this platinum version avoids harsh lines and flatteringly frames the face with see-through bangs getting longer and thicker toward the sides.

30. Two-Tier Golden Blonde Bob. Haircuts for women over 60 are not limited to crops, and you can safely transition to longer hair by refreshing the shape, adjusting the layers, and adding dimension with highlights.

31. Gray Pixie for Women with Glasses. A pixie is one of the fashionable short haircuts for women over 60 that will never go out of style. It’s very feminine and lends mature chic vibes to your appearance. It requires little maintenance too.

32. Neck-Length White Gray Hairstyle. In this neck-length cut short sections of layering generate the necessary root lift which can be a huge issue for those with fine hair.

33. Tapered Layers in Gray and Blonde. While delivering tons of texture, this layered cut promises low maintenance as its lax shape doesn’t require frequent trims and the mix of highlights and lowlights allows for effortless gray blending.

34. Airy Stacked Bob Haircut. Some feathered layers stacked in the back, wispy bangs in the front, and subtle lowlights throughout the cut are the details that go into creating this fascinating bob hairstyle. The longer front pieces lend a slender feel. So much professional-looking!

35. Medium Length Hair with Long Layers. When cut very short, thick and fluffy hair might be tricky to tame, which is not the case with this shoulder-length style featuring a set of long exterior layers for extra movement.

36. Balayaged Bob with Stacked Layers. A low contrast blonde balayage on a polished, chin length haircut is both chic and work-appropriate.

37. Stacked Pixie Bob with Feathered Styling. Hair brushed away from the face can give plenty of dynamics to hairstyles for older women, especially when it has such an airy feel thanks to feathering and highlighting.

38. Midi Cut with Swoopy Layers for Older Women. Your stylist can feather the ends of your layers to create windblown movement and fluffy thickness in your hair. The end product is volumized wispy hair. Subtly highlight your mane for a beautiful finish.

43. Ash-Gray Medium Hairstyle. The blunt, rounded bob exudes elegance, class, and chic. Well-moisturized tresses allow for a frizz-free, glossy hairstyle.

44. Simple Cut for Women with Glasses. The beige blonde hair color solution of this graduated bob with bangs is classy, professional, and simplistic.

45. Top Heavy Bixie with Depth. This voluminous cut with depth-adding highlights combines blended layers at the back with piece-y layers at the top to debulk the thick strands and boost the crown.

46. Dark Rounded Bob Hairstyle. A slightly layered bob is one of the best hair styles for women over 60 who have natural brunette or black hair. Dark hair with the right layers appears fuller and boasts more depth compared to lighter hair colors.

47. Streaky Layers and Wispy Bangs. The layers of this style are masterfully carved to produce some bounce in the heavy hair, which is further made lighter by the thinned-out bangs and delicate blonde strips.

48. Lob with a Choppy Fringe for Round Faces. Both the side parting and bends around the face work to break its roundness, but it’s the choppy fringe that adds edge to this bright platinum lob.

49. Effortless Silver Pixie. Here is a great example of pixie hair cuts for older women who don’t want to tinker with doing their hair since it is set for tousled styling that can easily volumize thin strands.

50. Ashy Blonde Bob with Blended Layers. While over-layering can make your thin tresses look even scarcer, this bob gains some lift at the crown with a few layers and retains body through the mid-length.
