Trendy pixie haircuts for women over 50 are typically cut shorter at the back and sides of the head and get longer on top. A short ‘do that works with almost all hair textures – there’s a lot to love about the pixie cut!
Paige Patrick, owner of Urban Society Salon in Indiana, gave me inside info about pixie haircuts. “After hitting 50, the hair becomes finer, and a short pixie will allow the hair to appear fuller. A sassy short style also updates a mature woman’s style. Going shorter puts all the focus on your face, lifts you, and shows off your neck and body.”
The most important parts of the pixie haircut are the back and around the ears. “If your hairstylist nails that perfect shape in the back, it will take 10 years off your look. Not to mention, it’s a piece-of-cake to style,” Paige shared.
Her top styling pointers? “My most recommended product for a pixie cut is a good paste like Evo’s Box o’ Bollox. This paste gives the perfect malleable hold with very little shine. A paste will allow a short cut to come to life by showing off the shape more. Take 10 minutes every day to style your pixie cut. Keep up with it every 4 weeks to look more put together and well kept.”
If you’re going from a long haircut to a pixie, ask your stylist if you can slowly go shorter every appointment. “Working up to a short length will help build your confidence over time. This also allows you to make a good decision for yourself over time,” Paige advised.
