Short Layered Bob 

If you go for a layered bob, make sure it is styled to show off your dynamic cut. The way these shorter layers have been brushed back and set creates a cool version of feathered hair.

Feathered Bob with Height on the Crown

Feathered layers are fun and flirty, especially when teased in the back to give the crown a lift. Ask your stylist for chin-length bangs that layer and get shorter and shorter towards the back. Blow-dry with a round brush to style, tease the back, and you’re good to go.

Pixie haircuts for women over 50

A good pixie cut is a classic choice for middle-aged women searching for a change. It requires the least maintenance and is the ultimate “wake up and go” style!

Neat Feathered Pixie

This hairstyle offers the ease of the shorter hairstyle, but the sophistication of the feathered crown. Go for slightly longer strands on top and around the face, but keep hair super cropped towards the nape of the neck for a neat and clean shape.

Short Piece-y Crop

Pixie with Long Razored Layers

A fun way to customize a pixie cut is to make the front layers and bangs become one. Many haircuts for women separate bangs from the rest of the style, but when the entire look is razored pieces, some forward-facing strands can create bangs all on their own.
