Hairstyles for Women Over 60

As a background actor, you may often be cast in productions set during various periods – the 1960s was when established norms were challenged and revised.

Display your natural gray locks with pride with a feathered bob. This layered haircut is an ideal style for older women with thick locks.

Wet hair look

This hairstyle is ideal for those with thin or delicate locks who desire volume in their strands. Achieve this style by applying a gel/cream mixture on all areas of the head; short waves should extend from roots to mid-lengths.

Professional stylists Alysa Pace, Nick Arrojo, and Nunzio Saviano offered tips for mastering the wet hair look. They recommend using a strong-hold gel to elevate the volume in your locks and make them stand up straighter.

Tousled hair

Tousled hair has become one of the trendiest styles in recent times. Also known as beach waves, bed head, or messy hair, this look looks natural yet sexy while requiring minimal upkeep.

To achieve the look, start by washing your hair with a clarifying shampoo to give more volume and an authentic-looking texture, followed by conditioning to keep your strands hydrated and moisturized.

Make your hair wavy by sectioning it off into two parts and plaiting them while it is wet, then untie the plaits and run your fingers through them to separate them into tousled waves when dry.

Short pixie

Short pixie haircuts can be extremely flattering on mature women and one of the most versatile hairstyles to try in your 60s. Wear it with straight hair for an elegant and sophisticated look, or add side bangs for more of an energetic vibe.

Opt for a subtle pixie wedge by leaving the back shorter while adding length on top for a unique style. This works well with all hair textures and can be enhanced using products like Nexxus’s weightless style shape
