When you’re 60 or older, it’s difficult to know which hairstyles are too young or too mature. While you should always rock a ‘do that makes you feel confident and comfortable, it’s also good to have an idea of which classy, modern hairstyles are popular with women over 60 today.
Don’t hesitate to get creative like Tilda Swinton. Her undercut and unique blowout are perfect for any occasion where you’d like to turn heads.
Lobs are one of the most popular styles of the day. Add a mature edge to the traditional lob by adding loose waves and a choppy fringe.
Messy curls look elegant and beautiful at any age. Check out Michelle Pfeiffer’s for inspiration; the tighter curls, as opposed to loose waves, look mature and refined.
To get even messier, consider taking a page out of Susan Sarandon’s book. Her curly ends are loose, tight, and facing different directions. Her bangs help keep her ‘do polished.
Don’t hesitate to add some volume! Cher’s black layered cut is youthful but age-appropriate because of all the extra volume in her hair. Use a large curling iron to create those voluminous curls.
Feel free to play around with color, too. Donna Milles’ waves are icy blonde, but her roots have darker highlights and tones to make it look more natural.
Illuminate your face with a few strategic highlights around it. When you curl your hair, these highlights will be even more pronounced, just like Diahann Carroll’s.
You can benefit from a blowout at any age. If you’re rocking a bob like Christine Baranski, consider getting a blowout to get more height, volume, and body to your ‘do.
If you’ve got some grey hairs, embrace them! Age naturally and add some color to help highlight your grey hairs, instead of covering them. If Susan Sullivan looks this good grey, then so will you.
Feel free to rock some of the popular styles of your youth, like Jaclyn Smith’s huge wing-style curls. To keep it more modern, add some warm honey tones to your tresses.
The 70s are back, and Susan Lucci knows it. Her retro bangs complement her loose, cascading waves perfectly. Try opting for a wispy bang like this instead of a full fringe.
