What makes the short shag hair style one of the best hairstyles for older women? Well, the layers give you fullness and texture that other short cuts -- like the pixie -- won't do. And shags are often long enough (our pros say you need 4") to highlight.
Amy Carlson's sassy short shag is pixie-short in the front, with lots of layers and length at the nape: cute, young and fun (and great for those of us with thinning locks.)
