20. The Classic Bob
An old favorite, and for good reason, the classic bob never goes out of fashion and looks good at any age. If you have fine hair, the edge of your bob should be blunt, but for coarser hair consider some layers.
A classic bob is flattering for an older face for a few reasons. The jaw line angled cut emphasizes the cheekbones and defines the jaw line, giving the appearance of a gravity defying bone structure. But be careful, if your face is round avoid styling this cut curled under, as it will give the face a fuller appearance. Also a very short bob which exposes the hairline at the back can be very unforgiving if you have a few grey hairs making an appearance!
