9 Trendy Short Hairstyles for Gray 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.

Ask your stylist for something with a definite shape that’s tailored to bring out the best from your hair type, your face and your personal style!

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!
