Almost all short haircuts, from close-cropped pixie cuts to layered bobs, work well for gray hair. Short hair is often easier to style and maintain than long hair, and many women regardless of age prefer styles that are shoulder-length or shorter.
For women who want a quick-drying hairstyle that requires minimal styling, a pixie cut may be the best choice. Pixie cuts are two to four inches long and often have fringe bangs. Bob haircuts that brush the chin or ear have versatile styling options and deliver the feminine feeling of long hair with less hassle. Both cuts suit straight or curly hair and can be adjusted to flatter various facial shapes.
