This long bob is such a gorgeous haircut for mature women. The longer side swept bangs and flowy layers make it a chic style that's both professional and glamorous.

14) Side-Part Bob for Wavy Hair

This cute and swoopy haircut is easy to style and it adds plenty of bounce to thin hair! If you have naturally straight hair, this is an especially flattering short hairstyle.
The iconic actress Farrah Fawcett would approve of this style's feathered look with voluminous, curled back locks.
17) Pixie Cut for Curly, Short Hair
This is one of the best short haircuts for women over 60. It's easy to maintain and stunning!
Wear this short pixie haircut with twists for a beautiful and sophisticated look. If you don't want twists, wear it with short braids, locs, or simply your natural hair texture.

It's a versatile look that works well with most hair textures and face shapes. This layered pixie cut is particularly flattering for those with oval, diamond, and heart-shaped faces.
19) Classic Curly Hair Bob
A take on the classic bob, this short hairstyle allows for natural curls and waves to flourish.
The slightly shorter layers at the back of the head create easy volume without weighing down the hair. And, the subtle side-part adds a soft, refined touch to its sassy and bold texture.
Scrunch your hair with curling gel to create more defined waves.
20) Razored Side-Part Bob
This short bob is the one for you if you're looking for a modern, lightweight style layered hair that still packs volume. It's ideal for naturally wavy or curly hair types, as less styling is needed.
If you have straight hair though, don't fret. Try braiding your wet hair before bed and wake up to soft waves! Sleep on a Blissy Silk Pillowcase to ensure your waves will be stage-ready and not full of frizz.
21) Versatile Pixie Cut
One of the most popular short haircuts for older women over 60 is this pretty pixie. The longer top gives volume to fine or thinning hair while the shorter sides bring attention to the eyes.
If you have straight hair, easily style it with mousse or gel for a tousled look (like in the photo). Curly hair types can do the same to produce lovely defined ringlets. Try implementing a diffuser for even bouncier curls.
Protect Your Hairstyle With a Blissy Silk Pillowcase
Whether you have straight, wavy, or curly hair, it should be easy to keep your locks healthy and happy!
Sleeping on a Blissy Silk Pillowcase nightly is a simple and proven way to:
- Prevent hair breakage
- Reduce frizz

The magic of silk
Silk is nearly friction-free (43% less friction than cotton). So, when you toss and turn at night on a silk pillowcase, your hair and skin will be worlds happier.
When looking for a silk pillowcase, ensure your case is made from 100% pure mulberry silk of the highest grade, 6A. Also look for a silk weight of 22-momme, which is ultra-soft yet strong enough for years of daily use.
Only use a silk pillowcase that's of superior quality and safety. Look for the OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 label if you're unsure.
Prot tip: Blissy Silk Pillowcases satisfy all of the above!
