Short Cuts and Pixie Cuts
Women above 50 do know how to look beautiful. From their choice of clothes, accessories, to their makeup, these women know that very little can make astounding changes in their looks. One way to get great compliments is a change to the right hairstyle. For older women today, simple yet elegant short hairstyles are very popular. They don’t blindly pursue hair trends, but are inspired by the best tendencies.
Flatter your heart-shaped face with a short or very short hair cut. You can consider a cut just below the chin for a fun, youthful appearance and great body around the ears. Or a shorter one works with more volume on top, plus layers which elongate the face. Side-swept bangs in both add a youthful appearance.
Remember that bangs can liven up any haircut, even one that you’ve had for a few years. Bangs main benefit is that they can take years off your face. They cover up a hairline that begins farther back on the head. They draw attention to the eyes, and can help add volume to flat, lifeless hair.
Pixie hairstyles are classics for women over 50. They frame your face, showing off and highlighting the best features. You can wash this hairstyle, add some pomade for texture, and go. They are also somewhat low-maintenance. Also have the versatile pixie via getting layers cut in and adding a few highlights to freshen up the average pixie. A super-edgy pixie simply is keeping your gray hair and wearing it bravely in a pixie. The elegant pixie is soft and sensual with more layers and great volume, with the help of a styling product. It works best on thick hair with a little natural wave. It’s also perfect for making a rounder face look a little longer.
A stylish pixie is a super short pixie, best on petite, thin women, and anyone with a long, elegant neck, and thicker hair. It can also look great on tall and curvy women. However, you might have to go for a little longer pixie if you’re tall with a smaller bust or are full-figured. The modern pixie tends stay ultra close to the scalp and works best on women with oval, square, and heart-shaped faces. For round faces, add some longer bangs and style them forward or up to create the illusion of length. If you have thinner hair and tend to fall flat, keep the layers longer to add volume. Add highlights to create the illusion of more body, the color itself will actually plump up your hair follicles.
Hairstyles for older women can and should be interesting, modern and, certainly, flattering.
