#78: Blue Steel Pixie for Asian Women

I would best describe this style as a blue steel, disconnected pixie. My favorite aspect overall would be the creativity and unique originality involved with the entire color and haircut process. This was her first appointment with me and she really gave me the green light to explore her requests.

Consultations with new clients who wish to explore “outside the box” usually take me about 15 minutes so that we can really touch base on their hair history and possibilities. Also, it’s not very often that I get such requests from an Asian woman over 40 years old wanting a short haircut.

#99: Attractive Silver Strands

I would describe this look at timeless and stylish, but with a twist due to the edgy color. The silver gloss color and root shadow effect give the style an updated and modern feel. My favorite thing about this look is how effortlessly stylish it is.

To maintain this color, I recommend L’Oreal Professional Color Corrector for Blondes. It protects your blonde highlights from brassiness with the anti-yellow Vitamino Color A-OX Color Corrector Blondes Cream. Your blonde hair color is corrected and any yellow highlights are neutralized, leaving behind a pure cool blonde. Any silver-correcting shampoo/conditioner is crucial.

#100: Asymmetrical Flair

I would describe this look as playful and modern. My favorite thing about this asymmetrical pixie cut is the smile she gets having it. The asymmetrical shape adds an element of flair that compliments her natural color, texture, and personality. This is one of the most ageless short hairstyles for older women. It works best on a lady who is on-point with regular appointments, as it requires regular upkeep. It’s not matronly, yet short enough that it is easy to style. So often, as we age, hair gets shorter because it’s easier to manage. This cut lets that short hair be more expressive. This can be a wash-and-go hairstyle if desired. Coarse hair would be a good candidate for ease of styling, and those with fine hair will find they need to use more product to get the same look.

#101: The Short Shag

This is a variation of the short shag haircut with soft, undone texture. This is a great cut for women with fine hair who want body and fullness. The airy choppy layers are also a great complement to square jawlines.

To style, use a volumizing mousse at the root and blow dried it in with a round brush, focusing at the crown to get plenty of volume. Then, use Kevin Murphy’s Doo.Over and sprayed the mid-lengths and ends to get a separated look. This look is all about the texture and to amp it up, use Doo.Over because it has the texture of a dry shampoo with a touch of hold.

#102: Triangular Bob

This cut has been made by utilizing the triangular bob technique. I personalized the line to give a short and sharp shape on both sides, which is the part that I love. It gave me the freedom to enhance my client’s features. This will sit this way for at least five to six weeks. Therefore, if the client would like to maintain a straight hairline, she wouldn’t need any particular recommended products. However, if she wants to play with this style, a clay wax product is actually able to create movement in order to achieve a funky modern style.

I recommend this look for older ladies who want to give a firm shape to their features. It would suit all of those who have slim and gentle features. I wouldn’t suggest it for those who have thick hair but rather for those who have shockwave-strong features, as it would drastically expose their cheekbones and jawline structures.

#103: Chin-Length Stacked Bob

Feel a youthful thrill with a freshly layered, graduated chin-length cut. Some wispy bangs in front will surely complete this rejuvenating look!

#104: Long Side Swept Bangs

A great short hairstyle idea is to add long side swept bangs with a tapered neck that blends up to volume-enhancing layers at the top. The front is kept longer for a stunning side bang that frames the face beautifully. This look is very soft and wearable! If bangs seem to bother you when you’ve had them in the past, opt for short bangs above the eye or longer ones that you can easily tuck behind your ear.

#105: Thick Wavy Hair

This side swept, short wavy bob is super cute and a great idea for a more formal short hairstyle. Lock in your look but keep it soft and flexible with Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Touchable Weightless Hairspray. It smells great, too!

How to style short hair for older women:

  1. Section up half of your hair so you can access the bottom half of your hair easier.
  2. Grab a 1-inch curling iron and curl the under part of your hair.
  3. Drop down the top section of your hair and continue curling until your entire head is curled.
  4. Use a flat iron to smooth bangs over to the side.
