18 Modern Short Hair Styles for Women

Most women over 50 find that one of the many short hair styles for older women give them their ‘best’ look. And although it’s now quite acceptable for women who still love long hair, to keep it at shoulder-length, the short hairstyles for older women do tend to flatter the face more!

Hair texture

It’s also quite normal for women to experience a change in the thickness or texture of your hair during your 50’s. For example, some women notice their hair is thinner and if you have a lot of grey hair, this may be coarser making it difficult to style and control.

Short shag hairstyle

Super-straight styles are not the most flattering for mature women and you should try to get a little volume and movement in your hairstyle. The latest short shag is one of the best hairstyles for older women.

This is because there are lots of layers which can be styled to give you volume on top or around the sides and back, to balance out your face shape perfectly.

Jane Fonda and Raquel Welch are great fans of short shaggy haircuts and have been wearing them for years, in a selection of different short styles,which they just tweak each season to stay totally up-to-the-minute with style, colour and highlighting trends.

For all hair types

A short shag with spiky textured tips is one of those hairstyles that always looks modern! And with a little styling cream, the layers can be lightly curled or waved to give fine or thinning hair the density and volume it may lack.

Coarse hair also looks great with a short shag cut, as you can get plenty of natural shape razored into your thick, bushy hair and enjoy a very easy-care style!

Bobs

Another of the latest trends that will add a modern touch to your look is the asymmetric bob. The geometric, angled bobs are especially suitable for balancing out a round face, as the strong asymmetric lines counteract the roundness in full cheeks.
