Here is a list of layered bob hairstyles for women over 60:

I have curly hair so it better quite short. But the cut and the products you use are key to the style !


I am not interested in getting a bob for my hair. I want a shoulder length, or longer, colored dark brown with caramel balayage highlights throughout. The cut I want is layered, shoulder length, or longer


Ditto. I like length for styling versatility for my hair.


No, I am not interested in getting any bob hairstyle. I would like a layered, shoulder cut style or longer. I want the base color to be a dark brown, with a caramel Balayoge be put throughout.


not sure why it’s sideways, but you get the jest of it right

You look marvelous with that haircut


I agree

You’ll love it!!


Very sharp


Love your haircut :)


Two weeks ago I had my hairstylist cut my silver hair into a shorter style bob than I’m used to. At first I wasn’t sure I liked it, but when I came home my husband said “you look awesome”. Then when I was out walking my dog two neighbors said it looks terrific. I’m finally convinced that a short bob really works for me. Everyone said: ‘it makes you look younger’. After two weeks, I’m loving it.
