For most older Treasure Valley women, with age comes maturity, wisdom, and self-confidence. However, it also often comes with thinning hair. While there’s not much you can do to turn back time; you can, however, choose a hairstyle that will make your hair look fuller. When it comes time for your next haircut, make sure you talk with your Boise hair salon stylist at unDONE. We can provide you with excellent recommendations that suit thinning hair and your specific lifestyle.
Haircut Style Recommendations
Before your next appointment, check out the following haircuts for older women with thinning hair.
A textured crop brims with sophistication. This haircut is best for older women with thinning hair by creating a textured effect. When combed backward, it creates an ultra-sleek style. If you’re already rocking a textured crop, make sure to keep the front of your hair volumized for added height and to help your hair look thicker.
A pixie cut is a broad category because you can get a super short pixie cut or a longer pixie haircut where the hair beneath is shorter than the length on top. At unDONE, our Boise hair salon stylists don’t want our fine-haired clients to fear short hair. Length can weigh your hair down, maximizing thinness.
A feathered bob provides momentum that thin hair typically needs. This haircut is often jaw-length and features layers to make your hair look flowy yet fuller. It’s a classic look that has been worn by older women with thinning hair for decades.
A short shag haircut is great for women with thinning hair to get natural-looking texture. The best part? They are low maintenance and easy to style. If you want a natural-looking texture that looks sassy, ask your Boise hair salon stylist for a razor cut technique.
Shaggy Bob With Bangs
A shaggy bob with bangs is great for those with round faces. Furthermore, the fringe helps to hide wrinkles on your forehead. Just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean you have to sport a lifeless hairstyle. Mature women with round faces and thinning hair look years younger with this style.
Textured Cut for Curly Hair
If you have thin curly hair, you may want to consider getting a texturized haircut. What’s great about this style is that it looks voluminous and bouncy. If you’re a mature woman with thinning hair who doesn’t have much time to style it every day, you may want to give this curly style a try.
Those with thinning hair shouldn’t go too light with their color. All-over blonde may be beautiful, but it can cause your hair to become transparent and see-through. Even worse, constantly lightening thin hair can cause further breakage. While a few strategically placed highlights are recommended, our Boise hair salon stylists caution going too blonde. Instead, a darker color helps to add depth, giving the illusion of weight and bulk, therefore making your hair appear thicker.
Let’s face it. Unless you have naturally wavy or curly hair, blow drying is a must for those with thin hair. Why? Wet hair clings to your scalp. Blow drying helps volumize to create the illusion of thicker hair. When you blow-dry, flip your head upside down or use your fingers to help lift your roots from your scalp. Using a round brush while you blow-dry can also give your hair added bounce and body.
