#70: Gorgeous Chin-Length Bob
This modernized chin-length bob for women in their mid-50s is one of my favorites because it is versatile. We utilize a light razor technique in the finishing details to complement a carefree style.
Chin-length short hairstyles can uplift and accentuate bone structure. Common face shapes such as oval and round face shapes particularly look great. The cut looks amazing textured or smooth, and flatters most with a clean line from the nape to the jawline. A natural body on fine to medium hair also shows off volume and texture.
#71: Super Short Choppy Pixie for Black Women Over 50
This black choppy pixie is a short haircut for women over 50 with a round face. The playful pieces that frame the face help you create different looks, like super short pixies that are perfect for work or play.
Shampoo and condition your hair, mold it down with Nairobi Styling Foam, then tie it down with a scarf or strips until dry. To style, mist the Sparkle Shine over the entire head, then use a 1/4-inch flat iron. Start at the top and slightly bevel the iron in a circle pattern completely around the entire head. To finish, fingerstyle until the desired look is achieved.

This is an edgy pixie cut with highlights while also maintaining a level of softness. This look can work for various textures, complementing many face shapes. It’s a very low-maintenance style, and the swept bang and undercut melt two looks together nicely.
I recommend anything that enhances texture or gives a little hold. For this style, Aveda’s Brilliant Universal Styling Creme was used to give a little shine and to create separation and weight. I often reach for pomade and hairspray, such as Aveda’s Men’s Pure-formance Pomade and their Aircontrol Hairspray.

Box o’Bollox is a staple styling product for pixies and shorter cuts.

#80: Shaggy Pixie for Thinning Hair
A shaggy pixie hair style has a disconnected, long razor cut on top with an undercut. The best thing about this short cut is that it proves that having very short hair can still be feminine, stylish, and sexy at any age!
This look is great for women wanting to give their short hair an edgy look while keeping it soft and feminine. It’s a great style for fine hair as we’ve kept the top and sides longer than the traditional pixie. This creates volume and texture and means that extra length gives you more appealing options for styling your hair differently. It also works well on short thick hair, removing bulk from underneath for a more defined and textured look that you may not have been able to achieve before without having an undercut.
#81: Neck-Length Layers with Long Bangs
These neck-length layers and long bangs are perfect if you are 80% gray and want gray blending versus permanent hair color. I cut her hair in a one-length bob with round layers so she may keep the curl throughout the day. I cut a side-swooping heavy fringe, blending it into a face frame to maximize curl hold and minimize a rounder-shaped face. I recommend using Paul Mitchell’s Awapuhi finishing spray and Keratin Intense Treatment. To finish, use Joico’s styling lotion for frizz reduction and curl hold.
#82: Youthful Gray Bob
A youthful gray bob is for someone who wants to embrace their natural gray but still has a sense of style. Like most gray hair, hers is coarse and resistant. It takes a lot of patience to grow out your gray hair. While it can age you, however, this woman in the picture has naturally beautiful white hair with no yellow or dishwater tones if you like to have fun with color and weave in lowlights to add some depth and spunk to your natural gray.
#83: Cute Layered Bob with Side-Swept Bangs
Consider a jaw-length layered bob with side-swept long bangs. I recommend Redken Pillow Proof Primer, Redken Stay High, and Amika Undone texture spray for styling. Short hairstyles like this are perfect for a woman over 50 years old who wants texture and a fun look without a lot of work. It’s ideal for fine to medium hair texture straight to medium wave. Oval, square, and heart-shaped faces will wear this style well.
#84: Mature Short Feathered Layers
This short layered cut for mature women has feathered layers to add dimension. It suits any age group, and you can wear this cut even if you have wavy hair. Blow-dry with a round brush for a smooth look.
#85: High Volume LOB With Layering for Women Over 50 with Thin Hair
Women over the age of 50 tend to go shorter in length, but a lob gives more options. A lob (long bob) with layers refreshes your hair by making it appear fuller and thicker. I love this look because it helps add an instant body to your hair. It’s a great cut for older women with short hair.
I recommend this haircut/style for any mature woman with thin hair or lifeless hair. It creates the illusion that your hair is thicker than it is. However, I wouldn’t recommend it to someone who likes to pull their hair up. With this cut, an updo, ponytail, bun, etc., are not options.
#86: Sleek & Youthful Angled Bob
Go for a short cut that is sleek, trendy, and classic and is one of the best youthful hairstyles! This short angled bob is layered, giving it serious swing and movement. It looks so sharp and stylish.
For styling, use Matrix Volume Bloom, which is great for short fine hair like this because it is light and gives great lift. Also, try Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Creme Oil to give your hair a smooth and shiny finish. This haircut is for fine to medium hair. It can make someone’s fine hair appear fuller. The cut falls right in on a 50-year-old woman with thin straight hair and is easy to style with this length. This can complement any face shape, and plan on coming into the salon every six weeks to maintain it.
#87: Short Angled Bob With Layers and Flip
This slightly angled bob, with over-directed round layers and a sweeping fringe, could be your next cut. As for the fringe, you can wear it three ways: swept off to the side, straight down, or take it back to the 90s by curling the top section of the fringe up and the bottom half of the fringe down.
#88: Graduated Layered Bob for Mature Women
This graduated layered bob is carefree, feminine, and sophisticated. The graduated layers maximize carefree volume and movement. This short haircut is perfect for fine to medium hair texture. Layered bobs are ideal for a 50-year-old woman who does not wish to spend much time on their hair but wants the illusion of a styled look.
Use a root volumizing mousse and blow-dry serum for a superior blow-dry slip. Great products include Wella’s Eimi Root Shoot and Eimi Perfect Me Lightweight Beauty Balm. Use a 35mm MoroccanOil ceramic round brush to create volume and separation between layers.

#92: Chic Highlights on a Choppy Bob with Side Bangs for Women Over 50 with Thick Hair
This shaggy bob hairdo is nearly all one length, and the bangs are perfect for hiding deep wrinkles on the forehead. This allows it to keep most of its weight, making it the perfect cut for women in their 50s with thick hair. The way that it’s styled keeps it from looking too heavy, and the slight bend on the hair in the front gives a softer overall look.
#93: Face-Framing Bob with Bangs
The curve and wispiness of this short blonde bob make it more youthful. It softens the face as it frames it by having the ends beveled in. The short bangs on blonde hair give the same effect because it is cut at a curve and is texturized, soft, and wispy.
#94: Shorter Graduated Bob
This bob is shorter in the front and longer in the back. This causes hair to naturally fall to the back, making it one of the easiest short haircuts for older women over 50.
