Full Answer

A pixie cut is a popular choice for mature women and works especially well on those with fine hair. This kind of cut highlights the face and jaw line. A bob haircut can be worn several ways. To keep hair looking fuller, try a layered bob and tousle the pieces while styling. The lob is also quite versatile. For the lob, ask the stylist to cut the hair just above the shoulders. Lob cuts work best for naturally wavy or curly hair. People with finer hair may have trouble achieving volume with this look.

For a modern shag, the hair is styled outward from the face to create texture and volume. The hair should look like it has been gently swept away from the face, rather than having the ends pointing straight out or up; otherwise, it can look too severe. Long layers can be very flattering on a mature woman, especially if the layers are feathered softly, rather than being bluntly cut. Side swept bangs can be worn with any length of hair. To keep it looking full and youthful, ask the stylist to make the bangs deep and long.
