Hip Hairstyles for Seniors

Friday, October 20, 2017

When you live in a senior community, you’ll have more opportunities to get out and spend time with friends and neighbors. That means you’ll probably want to put your best face forward by keeping your hair looking great! Luckily, good hair days can happen at any age, so consider rocking one of these hairstyles:

Short Layers

A shorter hairstyle can be much more comfortable and easy to manage, making it a popular choice for women in their 70s and beyond. When you visit the Parkwood Heights onsite hairstylist, you should ask for short layers that will keep your hair light and attractive. Layers can be great whether you’re going a bit shorter than your current style or are ready to chop it all off with a pixie cut.


If you want to keep a little length, then a bob might be the right hairstyle for you. This cut typically falls around jaw level, creating a beautiful frame that is flattering for many different face shapes. A bob is a great way to transition to a shorter hairstyle without going to the extreme of a pixie cut.

Salt and Pepper Locks

Have you been dying your hair to keep it dark? If so, now might be the right time to put the dye down and start embracing your lighter-colored hair. Salt and pepper-colored hair can be flattering with many different hairstyles and skin tones.

Short and Curly

Curly hair can look great at any length, but it can be more difficult to maintain when it’s longer. If you want to cut back on the amount of time it takes to style your curly locks, consider cutting them shorter. A shorter cut can add more volume to your curly hair.


Do you want to try something new with your hair?  If you’re ready to switch things up but don’t want to completely change your hair color, you can get highlights. You can enhance your current color and make it easier to transition to lighter-colored hair by incorporating highlights into your style now.
