Why choose a short haircut at 60? Advantages

Happy are those who have been able to keep their hair volume, once the 60-year mark has been passed. Happy, but very few nonetheless!

The short square cut

To look younger, nothing is better than a short bob cut which is just as popular among those in their 20s as those in their 60s. A timeless cut, this type of square is very feminine and elegant with a few lengths framing the face, which you could even degrade for an even more refined and original result.

The boyish or pixie cut

Two cuts with a very similar aesthetic rendering, these short variations differ only in their length – the Pixie (1950) being a more recent and shorter variation of the boyish cut (early 20th century). And both present themselves as a very suitable solution for women in their 60s. As long as you want to energize the hairstyle, so as to give it more volume and movement.

The cut with bangs

With or without bangs? It most often depends on the shape of your face, but generally the bangs turn out to be a nice youthful trick to hide the few wrinkles on the forehead. Note, however, that when we talk about short haircuts for a 60-year-old woman, we most often seek to open and slim the face, while too thick bangs could do the opposite. It is therefore better to prefer a tapered bang that is lighter and more discreet. And to better camouflage imperfections, strands around the face are another loyal ally.

And what a short haircut for a 60 year old woman with glasses ?

A cut is often chosen based on your face shape, but when glasses come in, things get even more complicated. But indeed, the choice of a hairstyle for a person who wears glasses is based on the simple rule of rebalancing the proportions. That is to say, with an oval face, we will naturally prefer glasses with a rounded shape, while the choice of frame will lean towards more elongated and angular shapes when your face is round. Of course, all of that would still go with the cut, so don’t forget to bring your glasses back to the hairdresser. Finally, note that the color of the frame, for its part, should also refer to that of your hair.

Assume your gray hair or opt for coloring ?

Speaking of hair color, there are two main options to choose from. Either you assume and wear your salt and pepper hair with pride, or you opt for coloring. In the first case, care should be taken to structure and style properly, at the risk of displaying an overly simplistic or even casual look. In the second, it would be best to go for a shade a little lighter than that of your natural hair. This to give a blow of fresh and new youth to his hairstyle. Quite a few ladies would choose light chestnut, red or golden shades to bring luminosity to their cut. Some will even be adorned with shades of polar blond and white, just to emphasize the beauty of their maturity..
