If there is ever a problem that women face, it is finding the right hairstyle. This grows more difficult as women age. During youth, women find it easy to keep their hair long and layered. However, as the body ages, so does the hair. It can become brittle, or even thin out. Women often adapt their hairstyle to suit their age.

Chin-Length Bob

The bob is suitable for women with oval and diamond-shaped faces. It is a short style that usually crops around the face. Wear it all one length, or add layers to give it body. This haircut works well for those that have very fine, limp hair, as it gives the appearance of more volume.

Short Bangs

During the younger years, most women tend to keep their hair with long with bangs blended in. However, some faces favor the short bangs that lie at or above the eyebrows. Short bangs also pair well with shorter hair. Try layering bangs so they sweep across the forehead.

Short Pixie Style

Short hair is definitely in. The short pixie is easy to style; you can cut it with layers drawn toward the face, or even sport a messy, spiky look. Most older women in the professional world wear it styled toward the face with layers added for volume.
