As a woman ages, not only her skin starts showing signs of aging, but hair texture also changes. It becomes less dense, and you will notice it thinning. Trying to find a hairstyle that will suit your current hair texture is tough. But the problem is compounded when you wear glasses. The haircut you choose, should not only matches your face shape and structure, but should also match the frame style. And you also need to make sure that it is age appropriate and is suitable for your hair texture. The best solution for thinning hair or hair that has lost some of its volume is to opt for short haircuts.
Short Hair Styles for Mature Women with Glasses
One of the best short styles for mature women with glasses is the cropped style. It appears wispy and gamine, and it looks great with glasses. The versatility of this haircut is due to its styling variation, which can be achieved with the use of different products. To get it, you have to ask your stylist to cut your hair in short layers at the top with longer layers at the sides. Hair at the back should be cut close to the head with rounded edges, to give it a softer and more feminine look. Hair at the sides should be layered in such a way that the longest layers just graze the cheek tops. To style such a haircut, allow hair to air dry after shampooing and conditioning. Apply a bit of texturizing cream to the crown and blow dry hair to get them in a straight manner. This hairstyle imparts more volume at the top, which goes quite well with rimless glasses.
Chin Length Bob
As hair starts to grow thinner, another problem that mature women face is that the facial skin starts to sag, and the jaw line becomes less defined. Hence, it is important to find a short hairstyle that camouflages this and makes your face appear more sharp. To get a chin length bob cut, ask your stylist to cut your hair evenly all throughout, so that it rests just below the nape of your head. A single and elongated layer, which is cut a few inches shorter than rest of the hair, and placed at top of the head, will impart a bit of volume. Finally, get angled side bangs cut in such a way that it hits just below your eyes. This style is suitable for women who wear thick framed glasses or spectacles with a double frame.
Most women think that this hairstyle is for young girls who have sharp features. But gamine haircut looks good on mature women too, as long as they get it done properly. Firstly, request your stylist to cut your hair in short choppy layers at the crown and back, keeping it close cropped at the sides. If you have a rounded chin and a heavy jawline, then such a style will suit you immensely. Keeping the sides cropped provides you with a more youthful look. It is also suitable for finer and thinner hair textures, as layers at the crown area imparts a more voluminous appearance.
To get this haircut, style your hair with short choppy layers at the top, which are about two to three inches in length. Hair at the back should be tapered to the nape with a longer length of the sides. For styling, you need to apply a volumizing mousse, while the hair is still a little damp, and then brush it with a paddle brush.
