30 Awe-Inspiring Hairstyles For Women Over 60

A perfect hairstyle is one that suits your facial structure and flatters your age. As you advance in years, hair tresses also follow suit and wear out in terms of shine and volume but that does not mean you should just chop them off. It is true that women go for short hairstyles as they age to protect them from more wear and tear but that’s simply not necessary. We’ve set out to prove that by putting together a list of 30 awe-inspiring hairstyles for women over 60.

These hairstyles for older women can come off as glamorous, sexy, and hip as the hairstyles showcased by younger generations. It’s all just a matter of how you pull them off, which hairstyle you go with, and numerous other factors. Keep this in mind when going through the list and don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t pull it off because it simply isn’t true. All you need is a little money, time, and a good stylist. If you have this then you’ll have absolutely no trouble giving yourself a stunning hairstyle that will turn heads everywhere you go. Who knows, you may even knock a few years off with one of these hairstyles but there’s only one way to find out.

Scroll down, enjoy the list, and don’t be scared to give one of these hairstyles for women over 60 a try!

    Women of all ages are breaking ‘the rules’ by dressing and wearing their hair in a style that suits them in both comfort and personality. No more short permed hair for the mature woman, now anything goes.

    • mplo

      That’s very true, Bev…particularly nowadays. Many women that I’ve known since childhood have opted to wear their hair medium-length (shoulder or collarbone length) or longer. I myself, am over sixty and am determined to keep my extremely naturally curly hair long. I love to wear it in a number of different ways, to suit my mood, as well as the occasion, which is an advantage to having longer hair. Using good shampoos and conditioners (both rinse out and leave-in) is also quite beneficial for curly or even wavy hair, both of which tend to frizz in humid weather, and to be somewhat dryer than straight hair, due to the fact that the hair shaft in curly or wavy hair misses the oils that are present within the sebaceous glands in the scalp.

  • Bobbie

    These photos are helpful in looking for a style….thank you. What’s a good style for a 60+ woman with a low forehead, small face, and very uneven hair line? My hair is below my shoulders now and I like the ability to tie it up, but it seems to be tied up all the time or else falls in my face constantly. It has lots of body and some natural curl and wave.
