Full Answer

A sleek bob haircut is flattering because hair texture changes as it goes gray and usually ends up finer than it used to be. This cut is no longer than chin length and is worn straight. A woman interested in this cut should ask a stylist for blunt ends to the keep the hair looking full. A variation of this cut for thicker hair is a slightly stacked bob with shorter hair in the back and longer pieces in the front.

For hair with wavy texture, a deconstructed pixie cut is a low-maintenance but stylish cut. The top is a little longer to flatter the texture and allow a spiky or tousled style. An alternative to this style for straight or thick hair is the boy cut with a deep part. The back and sides are longer than a pixie cut, and the fringe should hit mid-forehead and be long enough to sweep to the side.

One short cut that hits just above or just at the shoulder is the long bob. This cut can have blunt ends for straight hair or long, layered ends for wavy hair. The cut is flattering on every face shape, and added eyebrow-length fringe gives balance to a longer face shape.
