5 Simple Hairstyles for Seniors to Achieve Volume

Hair texture and volume can change throughout your life, and if you have finer hair now than you used to, styling it might be a challenge. But it doesn’t have to be! Try out some of these hairstyles dedicated to changing your hair’s texture and increasing volume. These styles paired with a fresh haircut from your local Great Clips salon are sure to make your hair look fresh and revitalized. 

For Women

Layered Bangs


For a volumizing hairstyle suitable for mid-length to shoulder-length hair, try fringe bangs, layers and a round-brushed look. Adding fringe bangs at the front and soft layers throughout the cut will give hair that extra body it needs to make it bouncy and lively. Blow dried with a round brush, this style gives the perfect volume. The Solutions by Great Clips Volumizing Shampoo, Conditioner, and Volumizing Foam are great products to help achieve voluminous bangs. 

The Claw Clip

The claw clip isn’t just reserved for Gen-Zers – it’s perfect for all ages! Gather your hair and twist it up in a claw clip if you want it out of your face for the day. This simple look will leave you looking elegant and put together. If you want a more formal hairstyle, brush your hair with a boar's head bristle brush and use the Solutions by Great Clips Texturizing Pomade for a slicked-back effect. If you’re going for a more effortless look, gather the top section for a half-up, half down, tousled ‘do.

Short and Layered


This haircut is a great volumizing haircut for women who love a short hair look. Incorporating bangs and finely cut layers, this style is perfect for accentuating your bone structure. To achieve this look, use the Solutions by Great Clips Boosting Blowout Cream throughout the hair, highlighting thickness and volume.

For Men

Classic Pompadour

This classic pompadour is a crowd favorite, and for good reason! This sophisticated look is perfect for the man who wants an elevated haircut, accentuating his face and style. To achieve this look, work a gel like Solutions by Great Clips Fiber Cream into your hair from the sides first and then the top, pushing back as you go. 

The Man Bun

Do you have longer hair? Even if you’ve never tried one, man buns can be the perfect ‘do for senior men with long hair. Tailor your look by starting with the Solutions by Great Clips Men’s Molding Cream. Simply run your hands through hair to create more texture. Then twist hair, lift to desired height and wrap around in a circle, securing with an elastic. For a more relaxed look, you can pull out a few pieces around the ears.
