Women who are over 60 years old and wear glasses are often searching for the right look to flatter their face shape, hair type, and goes well with their glasses style. That’s where a bob hairstyle comes in.

The bob has been popular since the 1920s so we already know it’s a classic. What makes it the ideal hairstyle for women over 60, though?

It’s a universally flattering hairstyle when cut right, low maintenance, and can make you look 10 years younger.

With these perks in mind, it would be a crime not to consider a bob if you’re on the hunt for a new look.
