The best trendy hairstyles to adopt this winter of 2024 after 60
- The short messy cut
To increase the volume of “fine hair and hair that has lost substance”, Gianni Coppa recommends cutting everything to preserve the best remaining material and get the most out of it. By short cut he means all types of short cuts based on “short hair that cannot be tied”. A length that allows the strands to fully blossom, makes the hair fuller and avoids stiff strands that break if we sometimes leave them longer. The hairdresser specifically advises to style the hair and give it a “messy look” to ensure that short hair remains modern and trendy. He assures that it only takes a little bit “styling paste or texture powder” daily. The only downside if you have a square or very round face is that this type of shorter cut is not flattering for your body shape. Instead, on the hairdresser’s advice, go for one of the other haircuts from the hairdresser’s range.
- The long bob is cut below the collarbone
The long bob, whose strands flirt with the line marked by the collarbones, is suitable for all face shapes and is one of the hairdressers’ favorite rejuvenating hairstyles if you are over 60. It lifts the oval of the face. But to ensure that it has a fashionable look and that it effectively rejuvenates your facial features, Gianni Coppa emphasizes the need to adjust the styling: “We avoid excessive memorization of blow-drying with too much volume, too stiff and too varnished, which will cause an aging effect”. It’s best to have one “fairly soft, moving brushesOr to choose “natural drying” which doesn’t shape too much. To quickly do your hair in the morning, the hairdresser also recommends texturizing your hair with a seawater spray.

Regardless of the type of gradient you choose for your body shape and your hair (discreet or pronounced), the hairdresser recommends “style it with movement” and from “come and texture it to get volume”.
