Some popular hairstyles for women over 60 include mid-length, soft bobs or curly pixie cuts. Other flattering cuts include short pompadours or bobs that can be swept back from the face, or longer cuts with long layers.
About.com recommends taking one's face shape and hair texture into account when choosing a haircut, regardless of age. Women over 60 may have slightly thinner hair than they did when they were younger, so it is advised that they avoid too many choppy layers. For women who have a lot of hair loss, curly or wavy hair can help add body and make hair appear fuller.
