Short Hair Styles for Older Women

Women love to experiment with their hair. After all, it is the most magical feature of their personality.  But as they grow older, most senior women prefer short hair and there are good reasons for this. Short hair is generally easier to maintain. With age, as people strive for comfort, managing hair can be a challenge.

Also, short hair gives an illusion of thicker, more voluminous hair. And since most women experience hair thinning post-menopause, it can help cover that loss and give a youthful look. But the most prominent feature of short hair is that it can make you look years younger than you really are. And who does not like an anti-aging effect?

So ladies, here are some great short hairstyles that can make you look 5, 10 or even 15 years younger!

Short Feminine Bob

The ageless classic bob remains the most attractive, trendy, and on-the-go type of hairstyle. With soft layers in the short hair, you can flaunt your hair in a care-free manner. And the best part is, it goes well with all types of hair so whether you have straight or curly hair, a short bob will look great on you.

Youthful Pixie Haircut

It is only common to see women aiming for longer hair even when the length is not flattering. So why manage hair hassle? Get a youthful pixie cut. With the right cut, you will not notice how youthful you look but it will also save you hours of styling.
