  • For age-induced thinning hair, short-layered hairstyles are a good option. However, they also open up the face. Consult a professional to understand which hairstyle works for you.
  • If you wear broad-framed glasses, pixies and short bobs will help draw attention away from the signs of aging.
  • Side swept or wispy bangs can help achieve a soft and youthful look for ladies who wear thick-rimmed glasses.
  • If you have a head of heavy salt and pepper hair, go for sleek hairstyles and glasses in popping, vibrant colors.

This is for all those brave hearts out there! If you are looking for a serious makeover, then try the pompadour pixie hairstyle. This works best for those who have fine hair. All you need to achieve this look is short hair, some mousse, and a little bit of backcombing!

Glitzy Fritzy, a YouTube influencer, shares how she styles her pixie hair, starting with wet hair all the way to its voluminous glam. She uses wax to mold her hair in any direction she wants. She says, “Second day is better than the first day. Second day, I wake up with it (hair) all over my head but this wax is in here [and] pretty much all I have to do is take some biosilk oil, rub it in my hands, and go through my hair (i).”

8. Spunky Pixie

Is your hair growing out? You can make it look cool and fresh without any trimming. Apply some light-hold hair gel and brush your hair back. This will keep your hair out of your face, so you can show off those slick glasses!

Add a modern twist to a classic pixie by styling it in a mohawk. Did you know that bobs were cut this way back in the ‘20s? That’s pretty modern for a vintage era!

Wearing a classic cat-eye or sleek round frames are recommended to enhance your mohawk pixie cut and your overall facial features.

You can try, but you can’t stop smiling! That is what this inverted bob does to you. Take that stress buster to your hair and add some waves to it to calm you down. This is also the perfect way to add hints of blue to accentuate the grays in your hair.

Favour Akinjiyan of Favoured Beauty says “A growing out pixie can give you some really flattering bangs. You must also take the shape of your face into account when picking the type of glasses you pair with your bangs.”

15. Layered Lob

A layered bob is the easiest way to add volume and texture to your hair. I especially like that the top layer is a lighter brown, and it gets darker as you reach the final layer. It adds dimension to the bob.

16. Toned Shades

A light blonde at the top that bleeds into darker shades of blonde: this blonde dimensional look is ah-mah-zing! The light blonde locks soften the layers and help in framing your face beautifully.

17. Soft Colors

Blonde hair serves as a great canvas for all hair colors. And just because you have reached a certain age, it does not mean you should stop playing around with fun hair colors. This blonde bob done up in shades of baby pink is proof of that.

18. Asymmetrical Bob

Ladies, raise your hand if you’ve never wanted voluminous locks! I bet none of you raised your hand. All us women want are thick and luscious tresses. If you have short hair, get it cut in a graduated asymmetrical bob to add volume and a quirky touch to it.

19. Messy Pixie

Messy hair is an enigma on its own. So, it comes as no surprise that a messy bob makes for a killer look. This would be a perfect hairdo for those hot summer days when all you want to do is tie up your locks.

It is recommended to wear round eyeglasses to match with a deep side-parted messy pixie hairdo and enhance one’s facial features.

20. Stacked Bob

Back in the early 19th century, it was a trend to flaunt a deeply curved hairline curve. It’s time to bring back that trend by sporting this stacked bob with a curved hairline at the back. The blunt bangs in the front will beautifully frame your face with the glasses.

21. Asymmetrical Wedge Cut
