Short Pixie Hairstyles For Older Women

Short pixie hairstyles for older women are easy to style and even easier to wear. A pixie cut refers to a variety of short haircuts that typically contain many layers. The pixie cut is sheared to over the ears and often contains wispy bangs.

The significant feature of a pixie haircut is close-cropped layers that surround the face and lay close on the sides and back of the head.
