What are the hottest gray short hairstyles for 2023?
Pixie cuts are growing in popularity, especially among the over 50s. Thinking of making a hair transformation? Then be bold and choose a long pixie cut! Essentially, it’s a short hairstyle with long bangs that show off the ears (and earrings) and the nape of the neck. This pixie cut can make you look younger by accentuating your facial features, especially your cheekbones and eyes! This is a great option if you want something super classy with bangs. Just make sure you get the bangs cut to a length that flatters your face shape.
The bangs are an asymmetrical element that add a really great unique dimension to the overall cut
Gray bob with side parting
The bob haircut with side parting is also IN in 2023. The almost straight line of this hairstyle makes the hair appear thick and healthy. This modern style looks great on most face shapes and can be curled for added volume. This one is for the conservative ladies who don’t like long hairstyles for gray hair over 50 and prefer the length above the shoulders. The side parted gray bob looks neat while the side parting adds volume to the hair. This is a low maintenance style, it dries out quickly and only needs trimming every 6 weeks or so.
Bob is one of those styles that could make you look younger!
Short undercut pixie with choppy top
Short choppy hair doesn’t always have to look wild, but it can if you want to! If that’s the vibe you’re going for, make sure to keep the bangs extra short and the top extra choppy. The short undercut pixie with choppy top flatters almost every face shape and has the ability to make any lady look 10 years younger! Choppy haircuts work well for any hair type, even fine hair. The extra layering will add the illusion of thickness. This is really welcome for women over 50 as hair often thins out over the years.
A professional stylist can style fine hair in a very modern way and give it a lot of dimension
Modern gray blunt bob
One of the classic and safest hair trends for older ladies in their 50’s is a blunt bob cut. This no-layer cut has a sheer shape and shine that holds even baby-fine hair together. A blunt bob will also look more luscious if it’s no longer than 2-5 cm below the chin. There are countless ways to enhance a blunt bob haircut. Wavy, straight, tousled or funky – each style suits a specific mood and personality.
The blunt bob suits an oval, square or heart-shaped face quite well
Edgy choppy pixie that has a rejuvenating effect
Short choppy layered hair looks cool and very fresh in the form of the pixie cut, especially when you use a mix of long and short angled layers. Youthful and sparkling, it adds tons of dimension and texture to your hairdo. Fine hair looks much thicker when cut in choppy layers. The root of extremely dark tones complemented with extremely light tones helps create a sense of depth and added texture. Be sure to shake out the hair after it is completely dry to increase its volume.
