Looking to try a new hair style in 2017?

If you’re looking for something new, there are heaps of hairstyles that might just knock back a few years and make you look more youthful.

Paul Labrecque of New York City Salons says, “Asymmetrical or less than perfect hair shapes deflect attention away from wrinkles.”

Here are just some of the anti-ageing haircuts you can try…


Short crop
This is a super short version of the pixie cut but with a short fringe lends you a youthful look.

Short layered bob haircut
Dark roots against light hair creates the illusion of density in your hair and choppy waves create more volume.

Textured lopsided bob
The wispy ends of this longer side of the bob creates a unique look and adds volume to your hair.

Long layered pixie cut
Asymmetric cuts always add volume especially when the hair is side parted and more is lifted to one side. Again, choppy layers add chunk to this look.


Pixie cut
This is a combination of the bob and pixie cut but more choppy and fluffy. 

 Shorter crop pixie
Just look at the difference this haircut has made. It’s all about creating texture and definition.


Sleek undercut
Some might say that undercuts could be too “out-there” for over-60s but this nana shows that it’s never to late to try this look.

Short side sweep
Isabella Rossellini loves this cut and it does a great job to keep her looking young. It’s also an easy style to keep.

What kind of haircut are you planning to get?

    All the above are really nice cuts but I have very curly hair. How about a style for us curly tops.

    • Pat Zammit  

      Exactly what I was thinking, I,d love to have a different style but no matter who does it, it always ends up looking the same

    My great hairdresser, Lisa, at Hair on Vaux Cowra cut my hair in that Rossellini style 2 years ago and I love it, so easy to do. I am completely grey so she talked me into some black foils, I was dubious at first but wouldn’t have it any other way now. I turned 67 yesterday and I really think having a hairstyle that isn’t aging make you feel young. Go for it girls, get rid of that horrible, damaging perm that we all thought was cool 25 years ago, listen to your hairdresser, so glad I did

    • Anne  

      It looks like a great style. I have very short grey hair in pixie cut. Would you mind adding a photo of your cut, I am thinking of going a bit longer in a similar style with some black foils as well.

    These are beautiful!!! But I would love to see some for curly hair. I’m 65 and have naturally curly hair. I’ve been wanting a new do for years!!!! I’ve had the same hair style it seems forever!!

    • Rosemary McDonald  

      Mine is extremely curly too, at 73 ir seems to be curlier.
      Would love some styles for us curly ones. Get sick if being asked where I get it permed too.

    very few hairdressers can handle the electric shock I have on my head getting my hair cut is a nightmare

    Great styles, but what can one do with thin, fine hair?????A short pixie looks makes me look like I have no hair at all… Dark colouring shows my scalp… I don’t have ‘bulk’ hair at the back and sadly I can’t find any sites that just gives me bulk at the back…. One lady told me to buy a hair piece and cut 10 inches of…. At the cost of $700 I said no…… I have numerous wigs but living in the tropics its just too hot…..I tend to use the dry shampoo just to thicken things up …. I have tried every drug on the market….

    • Keep trimming the dead ends of your hair just the very ends not inches jst very tips it will strengthen up a nd grow thicker don’t wear hat all the time and when you wash it let dry naturally. Think about it if you cut grass it comes back thicker so will your hair

    These articles always attract my attention and I’m always disappointed. I have naturally curly hair but these articles never mention curly hair, it’s always about straight hair. It would be lovely to see different styles for curly hair that would make me ‘look and feel younger’
