27 Lovely Hairstyles for Women Over 60 with Round Faces

In this article, we have gathered our top 27 hairstyles for over 60 with round face women. Making this pick was very important for a few reasons.

When you were younger you’ve probably felt that there was nothing that you can’t pull off. Whatever you would choose to wear looked amazing and you’ve probably already gone through that experimenting phase where you tried all the hair colors and hair lengths. Red, purple, brown, blonde, caramel, long, short, wavy, curly, bangs, perm – you’ve worn it all.

However, after you’ve reached a certain age, you probably started giving more thought what hairstyles, haircuts and hair colors best suit your personal style and your age.

One important factor to keep in mind when choosing the right hairstyle is the shape of your face. Not every hairstyle is appropriate for every face shape. If your face shape is round then you are at the right place.
