Easy haircuts for women over 50 range from short to shoulder-length and usually feature layers and bangs. Layered bobs, spiky pixie cuts and modern shags are examples of these hairstyles.
The layered bob is easy. The hairstylist adds long layers that allow the hair to move. To style a layered bob, women blow dry the hair with a round brush, add a little shine serum and set it with light hairspray. If the hair stylist includes more layers, the look can be curled for a more formal look. In this case, the layers are curled in alternating directions.
The modern shag is similar to the layered bob but contains a lot more layers. The hairstylist should make the layers uneven. To style this haircut, women run their fingers through their hair until it's mostly dry, which gives the style volume. They finish with a medium-size round brush to flip the ends up. Adding molding gel at the end to pull the layers apart makes the look modern.
A spiky pixie haircut is easy to take care of. The style features short, side-swept bangs and texturized layers all over. Styling the spiky pixie requires rubbing the fingers through the hair while drying and finishing with hair wax to pull the spikes apart from the rest of the hair.
