Short Layers with Long Bangs

Many of today's seniors are choosing hairstyles for silver hair that look both beautiful and youthful. Whether your hair turns a beautiful silver color on its own, or it has a little help from your hair colorist, the look is gorgeous and growing in popularity.

A short layered haircut with long bangs is a great look to show off a beautiful long neck. The wispy long uneven bangs play down a high forehead and frame the face playfully.

Short Loose Curls

While this is a medium length hairstyle, the layers are short to lend volume and movement. This is a good option to tighter curls. Instead of a perm, this style works best when curled on soft foam rollers or spiral rollers that are worn overnight.

Short Natural Hair

Whether you prefer short or medium length hair, this style is a happy median. The natural texture of the curls show off the glistening highlights of silver hair.

Short Bob

This versatile short bob hits just below the ear and has longer layers. It is a perfect complement to a smaller or more narrow face. The length of this cut accentuates cheekbones and eyes and works with any thickness of hair.

Classic Bob

A classic bob is a hairstyle that never goes out of style. A bob can be cut in a number of different lengths. If your hair is silver or white avoid discoloration by using a clarifying shampoo once a week.

Shoulder Length Lob

Lobs are not just for the younger generations. A shoulder length lob, or long bob, with large curls showcase the natural highlights of silver hair. This style suits any type of hair and has endless versatility with updos.

Short Tight Curls

If you have naturally curly hair, a short cut is the perfect hairstyle for you. Wash, towel dry and add a little leave-in conditioner and you are ready to go. Always use products made for your type of hair.

Loose Layered Waves

Silver mid-length hair cut into long wavy layers is a flattering style that highlights the best features of your face. The look is easily transformed from playful to glamorous.

Medium Length Layers

Silver hair that is straight with natural body looks wonderful cut into short to medium length layers, parted on the side with sweeping bangs. This hairstyle draws attention to the eyes, making them look even more beautiful.

Silver Hair Fullness

This hairstyle gives balance to the face with gentle volume on the top. Using a round brush when blow drying gives it added fullness.

Cropped Hair with Fringe

This is the ultimate carefree hairstyle. It is the same length all over with longer fringe pieces at the ears. The neckline can be cut even with the rest of the hair or have a little length left to mimic the fringed hair in front of the ears. This style only requires a touch of styling cream or gel to set the fringe in front of the ears.

Short and Sophisticated

A hairstyle for silver hair that is neat and sophisticated is very short straight hair cut around the ears with a side part.

Shoulder Length Loose Waves

Long silver loose waves look soft and attractive. Use your fingers to create a casual tussled look.

Cropped Cut

This easy style can be as short as you like on the sides and back. The top of this style is left long enough to use a small curling iron to set it.

Long waves

Gone are the days when seniors only wore short hair styles. Long locks look great on women of all ages. Long silver hair with gentle waves pushed away from your face is a classic style. Long hair gives you the option of pulling it back or wearing it in an updo.

Big Curls with Volume

Big curls add volume to this short layered style. This is a perfect cut for those who have wavy hair as styling would only require scrunching. Add a pretty headband to give the appearance of more volume in the crown.

Silver Stack

A short stacked style like this is easy to work with whether your hair is natural or relaxed. Use rollers to set the top and brush out for more volume or use a flat iron to straighten it. Pull a section down in front for an easy side bang.

Tapered Style

A tapered cut as this is versatile for those with straight hair of any thickness. The hair is cut the same length all over using the bangs as the guide and blending to the back. Using a small round brush while blow drying or a half to one inch barrel curling iron to give volume to the hair on top of your head.

Gentle Soft Curls

Loose gentle curls soften your face, are easy to maintain and look attractive on women of any age. Use a light mist hair spray for added hold.
