Modern Older Women Hairstyles

A great cut if you want to retain some length.

1. Lob and Bangs

If you still want to have some length, but not that much, the lob haircut may be the perfect fit for you. We love how this style is paired with wispy bangs as it defines your facial features.

2. Curly Top

Nature texture is so in, and when you are older there is something so glorious about finally embracing it! We love this natural-haired look with short curls that comfortably sits on your head. For easy/breezy styling, apply some mousse, like the Nexxus New York Salon Care Styling Mousse Plus, to your hair post-shower, air-dry and go about your day.

3. Pixie

Power to the pixie! This classic shot haircut isn’t going away anytime soon and we are so happy about that. As one of the quintessential older women hairstyles, the pixie cut is key if you want a low-key/super minimal look that’s still pretty stylish. To define and shape your pixie, use some of the S Factor by TIGI Creamy Molding Wax.

4. Updo

Another look to try out if you have some length is the updo. There are tons of variations on this style–from the French twist to updos for wavy hair–that are sure to suit your personality and sense of style.

5. Bowl Cut

The bowl cut has seen its way through history in the 1950s, and today in the modern iteration that’s been seen in both men and women. We also love this hairstyle on older women that accentuates the face, while being super chic and minimal.
