  • Short hairstyles can be maintained very easily.
  • They don't give away the fact that your hair may have been thinning over time.
  • Contrary to popular belief, these hairstyles can be styled to look different can thus be worn formally and informally.

In fact, it is a great hairstyle that maintains the thickness of your hair and can have you look charming at all times.
Bob Haircut

Bob hairstyles are popular among all age groups and are perfect for senior ladies. Among these, the very short bob is extremely popular. For a formal occasion it can be tousled (and held in place with a good hair spray) to create an interesting hairstyle. Get yourself some bangs to hide away the wrinkles, and you have yourself a classy hairstyle. Whether your hair is straight or wavy, this one is bound to look great on you.
Side-swept Hairstyle

This is a short haircut too, but with a deep parting, which means one portion of the hair is swept on to one side of the face. The basic length of your hair may be as short as the pixie cut, or slightly longer. This is one of the more trendy short hairstyles. For those of you who have fine hair, this hairstyle is a great, low-maintenance choice.
Layered Hairstyle

Even if your hair is short you can go for layered hairstyles that are low maintenance. All you need is a little mousse to keep the hair in place and the layers visible, and you are good to go. You can even curl up the layers every once in a while for a different look. This is the beauty of this hairstyle; it allows you to sport several looks though the basic hairstyle is the same.
