One of the changes that a woman often makes after age 50 is her hairstyle. You may have noticed that your hair is thinner now than it was 20 years ago. If you are over 50, and you want to make a change to your hair, don’t worry. Here is all the information you need for short hairstyles for women over 50.

Short Hairstyles for Fine Hair

There are several hairstyles for thinning hair you might want to try if you are over 50. One of the trendiest haircuts for women over 50 has been the pixie cut. The pixie cut has been around since the 1960s. This cut is short, even clipped or buzzed, along the back and sides of the head. It’s longer on the top. You can razor pixie cuts on the top to help hide thinning spots and give the haircut lift and volume. This haircut is so versatile, you can make it as edgy or as trendy as you want.

Another great hairstyle for women with fine or thinning hair is the cap cut. The hair in the back and on the sides is longer than with the pixie. But, like the pixie, it’s cut into layers. The cap cut is also able to hide areas that are fine or thin on a woman’s head. Cap cuts are also versatile. You can have them styled sleek or trendy as well, or you might choose to add a streak or pop of color.

Short Hairstyles for Thick Hair

Just because you are over 50 doesn’t mean that your hair naturally goes thin. In fact, you may have a lot of hair left on your head. You may have left your hair long for decades. You may be unsure of short hairstyles for round faces because your face is round or full. You might also be unsure of a shorter haircut because you are over 50 with glasses.

If you are concerned about wearing shorter hair, we have two variations of the same style to suggest for you. You may want to try the bob haircut. This versatile haircut looks amazing on women with thick hair. Women with thick hair love the bob because it can accomplish two things. First, it allows women with full faces to elongate their face shape by adding volume to the top. Second, because it adds volume to the top of your head, this style takes some weight off the bottom. This makes the bob a great haircut for women with thick hair. Think the bob is too generic? Then, you may want to go with a blunt cut bob, which is a little edgier.

The lob is a version of the bob. While the bob usually ends at the chin, the lob is longer. Many women with glasses or who have round faces like this style. Lobs can also build layers into your hair, which gives your haircut lift and volume. You can style a lob quickly, or you can add products for a sleekly styled look.
