Flattering hairstyles in your 60s

As we get a little older our hair starts to change. It can thin out, change texture, get drier and above all go grey. Our facial features change too. You may start to find that the hairstyle you sported in your 40s will no longer suit you.

You would be surprised how your hair can impact your life. If your hair looks fantastic, you will feel fantastic. We believe all women deserve to look and feel their best – and here at Starts at 60 Style we think you should start at the top (of your head that is!)

Here are our favourite haircuts and styling tips to give you your most flattering hair yet!

Cropped Bob

Perfect for all types of hair. The rounder your face, the longer the length is best. Keep this soft with tousled layers. This is definately one of my favourite styles as it is very flattering.

Choppy Lob

This style is terrific for everyone. This lob is a very flattering style – especially if you have a round face. The layers create movement and keep you looking young.

Soft Side Part

Centre parts can be harsh. Side soft parts are much more flattering. They also help to highlight your cheekbones.


Soft around the face

You know it’s funny: I read somewhere that as you get older you have to choose between ‘bangs or botox’! Seriously? Well I will say one thing: having your hair soft around your face will make you look younger. It softens your features and it will also help protect the skin on your forehead from the damaging effects of the sun. Framing your face is always a much kinder look than having your hair scraped harshly back from your face, highlighting all blemishes.

We hope you have found these style tips useful. Your hair is important, so take care of it and enjoy it!

    • Nettie Vino  

      So? She looks fantastic and her hair style sure suits her.

    • Ruth  

      We all should be lucky enough to look as goo d as Judi Dench at 50 , 60, 70 or 81

    • I hope I look that good when I’m 81 Janet I think Judi looks great and I love her hair

  1. I have blunt bob ..pleased to read its still ok in my 60s often worry about hair now i’m supposed to be “old”

  2. Nop all horrid I wear lots of head scarves and I’m now growing my hair and letting it go grey if whatever color it’s going to be because I’m over people not being able to cut it properly and besides the cost is way to much I’d prefer to buy another head scarf

  3. Long grey hair is unflattering on older women,I keep mine fairly short,layered, and easy to manage.

    • I disagree..well cared for hair looks alot nicer and is more flattering than some of the colour jobs i have seen on people over 40…I worry that my bob is bit young and maybe will go short soon…but love my natural grey….i was a blonde and colour just goes wrong within the month ..even though always went to hairdresser

    • Jackie I don’t agree… Keep your own hair how you like it, being easy to manage doesn’t necessarily mean it looks better…

    • How easy is it by 60 to know your hair (fine hair revolting long) have a style that flatters you not one that looked good when u were 16. And begone the hacked off men’s haircuts that make u look like his grey offsider .. the matching clothes hair + overall generic look.

  4. OLder woman, 60 plus ARE HOT, with short natural coloured hair

  5. My last hair cut I said “keep the length but restyle.” She chopped it very short. I hated it. It has settled and I let it dry with the natural curl so its not so bad now. My hair (natural red) goes yellowish not grey so I colour it. Women over sixty are hot with any colour hair Neil. β˜ΊπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ˜ƒ

    • you look wonderful Fran, you have a good thick head of hair and it really suits you and takes about 10 years off your age
