Classic and cool hairstyles for older women

As we get older, our faces and hair change, which naturally means our hairstyle should as well. Especially living in Australia where the weather is very hot for most of the year, a hairstyle that is low maintenance, and can withstand the summer heat is ideal. Listed below are some classic hairstyles that are trendy and perfectly suited to older women.

Layered bob.A layered bob is the perfect low maintenance hairstyle. It not only looks great when its straight, but also with some textured curls through it. The layers allow the hair to be light enough to have movement, making it the perfect hairstyle for a warmer climate. It’s short, choppy feel also means it will still look good even if your hair is a little messy!

Sleek bob.

Sleek bobs are perfect if you like your hair to look a little neater and more put together. Some layers that are shorter in the back will create some dimension, while longer pieces in the front will give the illusion of sharper angles.

Smooth or choppy pixie cut.

Nothing beats the ease of having a short haircut like a pixie cut. Although it is short, you still have a variety of styling options that you can create using a hair straightener or some styling wax. If you have fine hair, a choppy pixie cut is the way to go, as some layers throughout the cut will give you plenty of lift and volume.

Swept back pixie cut.

The swept back style is the perfect low maintenance look for a short haircut. If you don’t like to spend a lot of time getting ready, this is the hairstyle for you. All you need is some texturizing spray and a few minutes running your hands through your hair and you’re done!

Pixie bob with a side fringe.

A side swept pixie bob with the addition of a side fringe is a classy hairstyle that is perfect for older women. It can be customised depending on your face shape, and whether you prefer something neat and elegant looking, or something more on the messy side.

Classic long layers.

Changes in colour and texture as we get older can sometimes make it difficult to maintain long hair, but if you’ve always liked having some length, there’s no reason why you should have to give it up entirely! Some long layers with side-parted bangs at cheek level on a shoulder length cut is a classic haircut that will help create some fullness while allowing you to maintain your long hair.

Changing your hairstyle can be daunting, but it is something that naturally happens as we get older and our facial features and hair change. These hairstyles are perfect for mature women who are ready to make a change but want to maintain a classic, cool look.As a resident of Oak Tree Retirement Villages, you do not have to leave the village in order to find a hair salon, with opening hours varying and bookings by appointment only.
