23 Volumizing Short Haircuts for Women Over 60 with Fine Hair
So you’re an older lady over sixty with fine hair, huh? Well don’t worry, we’ve got lots of options for you! Feel free to make these A-listers—Sela Ward, Mary Steenburgen, and Suzanne Somers—your inspiration. From short pixies to long bobs, you can choose one that suits your facial features the best. Short haircuts for women over 60 with fine hair allow you to wear fuller-looking hairstyles.
Maryland-based stylist Jannah Dixon has a few tips. “First, ask your stylist what haircut looks great on a woman over 60 like you.”
Pick a feature to emphasize—eyes, cheeks, or chin? Know the ideal neckline cut that works best on you—undercut, graduated, layered, or blunt? What chin angle to choose—classic, A-line, or pageboy?
When styling, be sure you’re willing to commit to either air-drying or blow-drying. Dixon uses R&Co’s Dallas thickening spray and Badlands dry shampoo paste for finishing touches on older women with fine hair.
Dixon also brings out the fact that short hair is a time commitment. “Be ready to get your hair shaped every 4-6 weeks if you have very short hair,” she adds. “Then, trim every 6-10 weeks for cheekbone-length and 8-12 weeks for chin-length cuts.”
