Are you a woman over 40 looking to express your bold side through a short shaved hairstyle? From pixie cuts to undercut designs, there’s a myriad of options to suit various hair types and face shapes. As you navigate this exciting journey, Linda Miller, an expert in the field, shares valuable insights to help you make informed decisions. Let’s delve into her expert advice.

Ideal Face Shapes and Hair Types

According to Linda, short shaved hairstyles can suit a wide range of face shapes. “For those with a round face, a pixie cut with a longer top and shorter sides can create the illusion of a longer face,” Linda advises. “For those with a square face, adding asymmetrical bangs can soften the angles, while those with a heart-shaped face can opt for a style with volume at the jawline to balance the forehead.”

Maintenance and Styling Tips

The good news is that short shaved hairstyles work for all hair types, including straight, wavy, curly, and coily. “Thin hair can be styled with a blunt cut and gentle layers to add volume and texture,” Linda notes. “For thick hair, layering can help reduce volume, and a pixie cut can provide a lighter, airy feel.”
