A long bob is a flattering cut for any face shape or hair texture. The cut is styled easily by either straightening it or curling it. Thinner hair requires longer layers or blunt ends to keep hair looking full, while thicker hair can have more texture cut into it as long as the shortest layer is chin length or longer.

Pixie cuts are a chic look for mature women who have grey hair. When hair greys, the texture often becomes more fine, and a modern pixie keeps the illusion of fullness. Mature women should keep the length a little longer than a traditional pixie cut so they can add texture with product. Another cut for thinner hair is a sleek bob that is at least chin length with slightly longer pieces in front.

Some women maintain thick textured curls throughout their lives, similar to Jaclyn Smith. As of 2015, her hair is still long and worn curly and she is over 65 years old. Shag cuts are also flattering for thick, textured hair. A shag has many layers and can be worn as short as chin length or as long as shoulder length.
