    Layers For Volume

    Look at photo galleries of hair styles for older women. You will notice that most of the styles are on the shorter side and have a lot of volume and layers. If you indeed feel youthful, let your length go well beyond your shoulders--about five or six inches. If your hair is wavy and thick and you want it long, go for a layered or feathered cut to add bounce and body. To keep your long layers healthy get a trim every six to eight weeks.

    Pixie Cuts

    If you want a low maintenance, yet stylish, haircut, go for the classic pixie cut. The pixie cut is very short and generally goes between two to four inches in length. You will need to do a little bit of styling with a product such as gel, mousse or hair wax to give it a nice style and shape. If you are a woman on-the-go, but want a cool and fashionable hairstyle, this cut is especially suited for you.

    Cropped Bob

    If you are really daring and want a cool hair style, the cropped bob is for you. This cut is more suitable if you have hair that is thinner and straight instead of curly or wavy. If you have curly or wavy hair and you get a cropped bob, you risk your head looking like a mushroom, because the main characteristic of this cut are the blunt edges and thick fringe. If you have wavy hair, but want this hair style anyway, be prepared to do a lot of styling.

    Chin Length Bob

    Get the chin length bob for a more versatile look that needs a little less care. You can get this cool hair style if your hair is wavy, curly or straight. Since this cut is longer than the pixie cut and the cropped bob, you have more style options and have more length to work with a curling iron or flat iron to get the look you want. Have this hair style layered as much or as little as you want.

    Greying Hair

    Of course you can colour your hair if it is turning grey, but what about letting it go grey, or even helping it along by colouring your whole head silver or white? Consider dying your hair silver or white for a more stylish colour instead of just a flat grey--it shows that you are comfortable with yourself and are ageing gracefully. Add highlights to your silver hair to add more dimension and interest.
