Short Hair Style Tips for the Mature Women

A lot mature women love to sport short haircuts. Never let it be said, that if we are of a “mature” age-that we can’t do this, or wear that. Says whom?!

These gorgeous ladies have all “got it goin’ on”! You can give your short “do” some get up and go too, with these easy to follow tips-You Go Lady!

Hairstyles for Older Women: For all three styles pictured above, begin with freshly washed and towel dried hair-apply your favorite holding product i.e. gel or mousse and work through to ends to distribute product evenly. Comb hair into place with everything going in the direction you want it and allow to dry. Allowing hair to dry naturally or under a hood type dryer is best, although a blow dryer may be used if necessary-but the less heat you apply to your locks the better.

For a fuller, longer Pixie type cut such as Caroline Manzo’s pictured at left above-with fullness in the crown, more of a traditional look-for the office. You will use a medium barrel curling iron or medium sized hot rollers and wrap the crown area backward, the sides and back of hair down. Direct your bang area down over forehead. Spray all lightly with hairspray, and allow to dry completely.
Once dry, fluff with your fingers and backcomb (tease) with a pick where needed and use a bit of texturizing putty if desired to pull a few pieces in toward face and/or define bang.

If you are looking for that “mussed” look, for your short Pixie , such as shown in the center photo of Halle Berry- Use a texturizing product such as a putty and really get in there and have fun pulling your hair up in the crown, up and over to one side, a funky little bang, some fringes around your face. Just whatever you feel would look great, for a fun and flirty change!

Look to sexy Sharon Stone, for a sassy, sultry look. Just apply a styling spray with medium to extra holding ability to the root, holding strands up until they stiffen. Once you achieve the height you want, wind things up with an extra hold finishing spray or texturizing putty. When everything is in place just where you want it-give it all a good spray and Voila’, you are ready for that special occasion!

    This is going to be a long question. :)
    Well school starts in about 3 or 4 weeks. I guess I’m pretty, but I’m tired of being known as the “cute one” to all of my friends. I want to look prettier, hotter, and more mature. I also want to look like a girl guys stop and stare at. But I don’t want to lose myself!!
    I’m going into high school.
    I’m maybe 4’11″. Pretty short. I have medium skin that tans to a dark walnut in the summer. I have almond shaped dark brown eyes, and dark brown hair. I’m really thin, and people make fun of me for it and being short. I have a small amount of really long (overgrown) layers, and overgrown sidebangs.
    My style is like a t-shirt, jeans, polos, sneakers kind. Really casual.
    I have a bunch of questions, for different categories.

    1) Should I cut my hair like this (having a heart-shaped face?):…
    2) Does giving yourself natural highlights with apple cider vinegar (1 cup water, 1 cup ACV) actually work? I’m tempted to try, because my mom doesn’t want me to go to a salon for highlights and she won’t let me buy a kit.
    3) How could I fix my hair like this?:…
    I actually have no curling iron, but if I wanted my hair curly I usually use braids and sleep in them overnight. I also own a hair dry (but no straightener). Do I just have to make really loose braids to get the waves?
    4) Is there a way to make your hair grow a little faster? I want it to be a little longer before it gets cut.
    5) Any cute hairstyles, casual like messy buns, etc.?
    6) Any healthy hair tips?

    I am 16 years old, and look 12 years. I still have baby fat on my face and my height doesn’t help either [I am only 5 feet!]. I feel this really disadvantages me from doing certain things or interacting with certain people who are older than me. many friends of mine look their age and they get accepted into discos/bars and they hang out with older looking friends, but I would feel extremely self conscious because I would look like a little child near them. any tips on how i can make myself look more mature without making myself look like a drag queen?
