9 Trendy Short Hairstyles for Grey Hair

Don’t lose interest in having the latest styles when you find your hair is going – or has already gone – gray!  You can wear lots of face-flattering short hairstyles and look just as trendy as ever, so don’t settle for a boring cut.

As the world of fashion and beauty continuously evolves, one thing remains constant: the allure of gray hair. In recent years, we have witnessed a surge in both men and women embracing their natural grays or opting for silver-toned dye jobs, proving that this hair color is a timeless statement that transcends generations.

The silver hair trend has become a symbol of elegance and sophistication, with celebrities and influencers leading the charge. From stunning gray balayage to eye-catching full silver transformations, there’s no shortage of inspiration for those looking to join the gray hair movement.

Why has gray hair remained in trend, you ask? The answer lies in its versatility and the powerful message it conveys. Gray hair embraces aging gracefully and defies societal norms dictating that youth and traditional beauty should be the ultimate goals. It represents the confidence to stand out from the crowd and the courage to embrace one’s uniqueness.

Moreover, gray hair complements various skin tones and personal styles. Whether you prefer an edgy or a classic look, silver strands can be tailored to your taste. And with advancements in hair care products and treatments, maintaining gray locks has become easier than ever.

As more people choose to age naturally or experiment with silver hues, the gray hair trend shows no signs of slowing down. It’s a testament to the fact that confidence and self-expression are the real markers of style, transcending any fleeting fashion trend.

So if you’re ready to choose the best short haircut for you, let’s get started!

Pixie cuts

Starting with the shortest option first, pixie cuts are trendy with all ages and not just a mature women’s style.  There’s no doubt that a pixie that’s tailored to suit your face shape will leave you looking younger, as well as feminine and well-groomed.

Look to Jamie Curtis and Dame Judi Dench for examples of women who have made the short- all-over pixie cut their signature hairstyle.

Dame Judi actually featured in a women’s magazine in the 1960’s when she first cut her hair into a trendy new pixie style!  And she’s kept that same style for all this time, because it suits her face so well and never goes ‘out’ of fashion.

Short Bobs

Well-cut short bobs are one of the most popular styles for mature women, because they are so flattering and keep the focus on the upper face.  In addition, a bob is an easy-style hairdo option that doesn’t require lots of time-consuming fiddling about!

Inverted bob on a round face

If your face has become more rounded than before, choose an inverted bob, which will emphasise the angles on your face and balance out full cheeks.  This style relies totally on the cut and needs no special styling to accentuate your bone structure in a very attractive way!

Trendy sliced layers

Scottish pop singer, Lulu, was once married to hair care mogul, John Frieda, and has always kept her hair image young and edgy.  So take a look at her sliced layer bob for inspiration.  Volume is added on fine hair by blow-drying the top for height and the side are flicked-up to add width and edgy style at cheekbone level.

Classic short cut

Not all short cuts are pixies and if you keep the top long, you’ll have more hair available to ring the changes with your look.  For example, you can have a side parting with a side-swept fringe to soften the face or you can create a look that frames the forehead and adds length to balance out a wide face shape!

We all grow older with time, but by keeping your hairstyle trendy you can do a lot to keep your overall look fresh and modern!
