I have very short hair. It's the only cute haircut I think I've ever had.

Life was so better when we were in our 20s; many women would concur with our opinion. How easy it was to flaunt those electric pink-dyed hair or to just wrap the hair carelessly into a side bun when you were experiencing a bad hair day! You so wish you could turn back in time and don any hairstyle that you want, but that won't happen, you know.
We aren't saying that you can't be experimental with your tresses after your salad days (we aren't insinuating that you are past your prime!) but yes, you have to be a little more conscious about what you are doing with your hair.
You neither want to look frumpy nor do you want to look like someone who is desperately holding onto her daring 20s, so what options are you left with then? The answer is aplenty. Don't believe us? Go through the following selection of short hairstyles and bring out that snazzy you!
Short Curly
Short Curly hair
The best hairstyle that suits women over 40 is the curly look; be it wavy or extreme curly, this hairstyle rocks on women. Short curly hairstyles always look good and make a woman look younger than her age. Also, to manage long hair can give you a tough time, so you can always opt for short curly hair. You can also go in for bangs that are flipped. You can use a curling iron to curl the bangs partially, causing the hair to flip. If you want the complete curly hair look, then you can use rollers for the same. And if you have those natural curls, then consider yourself lucky! Go through some other hairstyles with bangs that look equally good.
Edgy Pixie
Another hairdo is the short pixie haircut, which looks smart as well. It suits women of all ages, but is best for middle-aged women as the hair length is too short and very easy to manage. This look brings in the fun look in women, and the bangs can be left slightly longer or short, sexy, and edgy. You can also go in for a spiky pixie haircut that will make you look punky as well as elegant.
Spiky Layered

Following suit is the spiky-layered haircut. You can ask the hairstylist to give a layering effect and partition the hair according to your wish. This trendy hairstyle for women will make you look appealing.
Bob Cut
Bob Cut
Bob hairstyles have always been likable by middle-aged women. They are short and sweet and extremely easy to take care of. Bob cuts are best short hairstyles for women with fine hair as they add volume to your hair.
Shag Haircut
Shag Haircut
Shag haircuts look cool, which are a bit longer in length than the pixie ones. These suit best for women with thick hair, so they can opt for these.
Other simpler options include a step cut or a laser cut, which will look stunning and stylish as well. Short hairstyles look as good as the long ones, but shorter ones are easy to maintain, very trendy, and hence, preferable. You can make your hairstyle funky by adding hair colors suitable for your hairstyle. But we guess, one wouldn't want it to be this funky at the age of 40!
If you can carry it off, then go ahead. But make sure whichever style you choose, it goes with your skin tone, facial features, age, career, personality, and most importantly, makes you feel comfortable while flaunting it. Follow the hair care tips and we can vouch that you'll look young forever!
