a look at my new haircut and back to summer basics

  1. Pat says:

    Absolutely beautiful 👍🌟

  2. Lea says:

    I love your hair short Beth, your face shape is well suited for it. So happy
    you went for it.

  3. Sue Nordberg says:

    This is such a great sophisticated look for you. I love it!

  4. Carol Mays says:

    I love your new haircut. I liked your longer hair cut, but this cut is more you.

  5. Michelle says:

    This style much better. Sassy!

  6. Sandy says:

    I love, love your haircut, Beth. I think you look bright, fresh, and sassy with this look. It’s always fun to try something new (i.e. the longer look) but I felt (only my opinion) that it made you look older than you are. I’ve struggled during these months with my own hair and let it grow a little only to realize that it makes me look tired and older, even though I might have on makeup. Love your blog..I am 73 and you are a ray of sunshine with great styling ideas……

  7. Deanna says:

    Wow! Love your new haircut! I think short and edgy is the way to go for you! I wish I could come see Lyric and get a great style like that. But alas, Illinois is a far way off.

  8. Sylvia Espinoza says:

    From head to toe, you rock! Borrowing that fun expression from the younger crowd. LOVE your new ‘do. Kudos to Lyric (love that name!). You’re also able to make dark polish on your tootsies look good, Beth! Great start to a new week. Love and hugs from Texas~

  9. Gaye Hagan says:

    adorable new do!

  10. Mary says:

    Love, love, love your new do!
    You are such a beautiful lady no matter long or short dooooooos.
    Great style!

  11. Diane says:

    I think this hair style suits you so much better. I really like it!

  12. Robin says:

    Yes! The new haircut makes you look ten years younger and sooo chic! Love it!

  13. Jani Munro says:

    Hello from Maxville, Ontario, Canada, Beth,
    I love your fresh new haircut- looks smashing! And, I follow you every day and so look forward to each your post whether it be fashion, family, food or how you have coped with the death of your beloved husband (with grace and dignity).
    My classic style is similar to yours- I have been ordering from Talbots, Ann Taylor and Nordstrom, since long before they opened in Canada and I so enjoy seeing how you style each outfit.
    Most sincerely,

    Jani (Munro)

  14. Susan says:

    LOVE your new haircut! But I have always admired your hair. Any style I’ve seen. Quite stunning!

  15. Peggy McCloskey says:

    Love the new cut! Good on ya for trying the bob–why not? But this looks fabulous.

  16. Judith Dempsey says:

    Ahhhh! There’s our Beth. You look amazing. The hair cut is perfect and looks stupendous. Dont take this as being rude but your short hair makes you look 10 years younger, stylish (should I say more stylish), spunky and sophisticated all at the same time. You turn heads and make women want to stop you and ask “where do you get your hair cut”. All the best to you.

  17. Darla says:

    Really like the new do Beth. The foils give it some dimension and are done very nicely. You look great in the shorter style! nice and cool for the rest of the summer. 👍🇨🇦

  18. Karen says:

    Love your haircut. Planning on taking your pic to my hair stylist. Thanks for posting!

  19. Karen Oliver says:

    Like me, you are a short hair girl. Such a flattering cut. Makes you look 5 years younger!

  20. Peggy says:

    Love it! Much more flattering. Short hair suits you.

  21. Cute outfit—love my white jeans too! And your hairstyle is super. With your gorgeous face I imagine you can wear your hair any length but this IS you!

  22. Sharon says:

    LOVE the outfit!! Classic summer! LOVE your haircut–it suits you beautifully!

  23. jan says:

    I love your new hair cut. Now will you show us how you style it? I have a very winkled neck so I avoid really short hair. Could you talk about skin care for neck and chest.

  24. catherine says:

    love the new hair – I have been reading your posts with interest as I have the same build/frame; style of clothes and hair – you are my inspiration. thank you

  25. Peggy Boyer says:

    Love the short style❤️

  26. Judith Austin says:

    Love it! I let my hair grow since Dec but last week had it cut short, very much like your new haircut! I am also happy with a cooler hair style!! Bravo!!

  27. Nancy says:

    Your haircut looks terrific! Enjoy the cool summer style.

    • Emily Landreth says:

      Love the haircut ,looks great .Color is very pretty.I’m almost 60 just had a cut & color ,however I’m ready to quit the color .You style & color are both beautiful .

  28. Carroll Niesen says:

    Your new haircut is really pretty. The sideswept bangs are elegant and flattering.

  29. Ramona Harris says:

    Beautiful! I was one of those hoping for a return of the short style. It is so chic! Enjoy your blog and I appreciate how hard it must be to keep pressing forward with the loss of Mr Style. May God be with you.

  30. Violet says:

    Love the new look! You always look fabulous, this just adds to it.

  31. theresa larkins says:

    I LOVE the new hair style so much better than the longer one. you look fabulous.

  32. Marybeth says:

    Adorable! You have great hair! xo

  33. Rory says:

    I love your new short hairstyle. It looks great. Shows off your face more.

  34. Carol says:

    Hi Beth,

    I love your new haircut!

    Lyric is also my granddaughter’s name.

  35. Frani says:

    Hi Beth .. your new do is lovely but whether short, long or in between, you always look beautiful!

  36. Anne Hughes says:

    Love your new hairstyle!

  37. Love, love, love the new haircut!

  38. pat gm says:

    love the new do!!🎉 looks great and perks you back up again!😁
    the longer bob style was very sophisticated, but (to me) made your face longer.
    you look much happier with your new hairstyle. once again, shorter!😍😘🥳🥳
    beth has her attitude and sass back!!🥰

  39. Chris says:

    Love your new haircut !

  40. Marcie says:

    Love your new hair style. I think short hair is so becoming on you. Love the OOTD, too.

  41. Mary Beth says:

    Love the haircut!! Very nice indeed.

  42. Pat says:

    Love your hair cut! You are one of those lucky people who have great hair that looks amazing short. Even very short. Love it! So youthful. I wish I could pull this off.

  43. Gayle Murphy says:

    The short haircut is fabulous. Resist all temptations to grow it longer!

  44. Donna J Idell says:

    I love your new do. I prefer this shorter cut on you. To me, it makes you look much younger.

  45. Dagmar Perez says:

    From Atlanta, I think that short definitely looks great on you!! Love your new cut!

  46. Mary skelly says:

    You look so much younger with short hair, glad you cut it !

  47. Celine says:

    Hi Beth,

    Love the new cut! From someone who went from a mid length blunt cut to short, almost pixi two years ago, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I found it to be refreshing at a time when I needed a fresh start. It looks beautiful on you ❤️ Enjoy!

  48. Jeanne says:

    I am thrilled that you have your short style back! I love it. Also, you influenced me to grow my natural gray out. I figured it was a good time during the pandemic. 🙂

  49. Corinne says:

    Absolutely love it!

  50. dorothy says:

    Love the shorter hair cut. I think it’s your best yet, softer on the face. I’m trying to get up the courage to cut mine. Haven’t worn it short in over 40 years but it’s so thin now that I feel I have no choice. Am still wondering how your husband was given the name “Mr Style?”

  51. Carolyn says:

    Good morning!
    I’m on team short hair. You look wonderful!

  52. Clarissa Betsold says:

    Love your short Haircut! Sassy, youthful, edgy. So much more flattering than the bob.

  53. Andrea says:

    OMG you hit it out of the ball park, Beth. While I loved your bob, it seemed at times too heavy for your face, depending on the length. This is the best of both worlds. Softer and more feminine than the super short cuts, but lighter and more alive than the bob. I can tell by the twinkle in you eye that you have found your mark. Take these pics to the hairdresser each time. They service so many people that this helps them to recreate your look perfectly. If they leave, your new hairdresser will have a perfect map. I am so very happy for you Beth. My first haircut after our lockdown, I felt like a woman again – vivacious and alive inside. We ladies need that to keep us strong. Vava vroom, Beth🌷

  54. Carla says:

    You’re radiant! I love your new do and gingham…always a gingham girl.

  55. Cheryl says:

    As a woman who’s been stuck with a short bob for years….after a certain age my hair got thinner and nothing else works….I have to tell you that I LOVE your new short cut.
    The bob looked great in you, but you’re one of the few women I’ve seen who can rock a short cut. So go for it!
    Love your blog. Take care. Stay cool. Stay healthy!

  56. Michael Lynne Smiley says:

    I am so happy to see you have returned to a short and stylish do! This cut is so much more you. You look lovely and so much more youthful!

  57. Pam says:

    Hi Beth,
    Chic and fabulous. Love your new style!.

  58. Diane Baker says:

    Love the new haircut. Not everyone can wear their hair short but it looks great on you. Nice change

  59. Karen Stofka says:

    Totally love your new cut. It brings the best out of your features. My personal opinion is the old cut just did not do your face any justice,this cut makes you look years younger, more sassy .

  60. Laura says:

    Beautiful haircut!! Really highlights your gorgeous eyes!

  61. i says:


  62. Cora says:

    I have been a fan of your blog for a couple of months and seen your transformation with age. You have a great eye for color…and trust me, I’m no expert, but your latest shorter cut is the BEST! You do a fabulous job picking your apparel to wear! As a result I have ordered from Talbots, J. Jill, Chico’s, and others that I had never ordered from before. THANK you!

  63. Melissa Knox Wulff says:

    Love, love, love your new short haircut! So cute and fresh!!!

  64. Deborah James says:

    Love your new haircut. Mine has grown from something similar back in February to a bob, and the consensus is that it makes me look older. Or, as my dear son says, “It hags you out.” My husband has offered to use the scissors. Sadly, I cannot go out and get my hair colored and cut because I have to protect an immunocompromised family member.

    • Tina says:

      Sweetheart, No one should talk to you so disrespectfully.
      Your haircut “Hags you out”? Your son needs to learn to use some tact or zip it up.

  65. Marlene Zuehlsdorff says:

    Love the shorter haircut. It
    makes you look so
    young and hip!

  66. Jo says:

    Great haircut Beth. I had mine cut yesterday. I also tried the longer bob. I just look better with shorter hair. I am not going with darker nail polish. Thanks for posting

  67. Robin says:

    Love the new haircut! It fits your personality. It was nice to try a new do, but this is definitely youthful, vibrant, and YOU.

  68. Elizabeth says:

    You always look terrific, but I love, love, love your new haircut!!!

  69. Belinda says:

    ditto, ditto, ditto along with all the other “new do” comments. I get the feeling you’re going to hear and read this a lot for a while! ♥️ it.

  70. Merry says:

    New haircut is adorable! Definitely highlights your pretty face and beautiful blue eyes!! 😍

  71. Francesca B. says:

    Gorgeous haircut Beth you look wonderful!

  72. Holly says:

    Wow! Beth…..you look so much younger in short hair and I knew that when you had grown your hair out but didn’t want to say anything. I have been following you for a couple years now and knew of your short hair already, Your “baby blues” show up so much more! Love it Beth


  73. Anne says:

    Haircut looks absolutely terrific!!

  74. Deborah says:

    Dear Beth: YAAY you are back girl! This hair style has taken 15 years away. You are back to your sassy stylish self and I must say I love it. So happy for you! You should be walking 3 feet off the ground, it’s that good!

  75. Cindy says:

    Your new look is beautiful! You really rock it!!

  76. Sallie says:

    Love the haircut!

  77. Sangita M says:

    Love the new do! Very becoming!!
    As always you look great Beth. Thanks for always making my day and giving me something to look forward to. Your strength give me strength….God Bless you.

  78. Bev says:

    Love the new do!

  79. MollIe M. says:

    Beth love the outfit. I am wearing a shirt today, but it is the tucking into my pants is a problem. I really like your short new do. It suites you over longer hair, but it is always good to try a new hair do.

  80. DIANNE says:

    I love the new hairstyle, so cute and sexy.

  81. Courtnie says:

    Love the new hair style!

  82. Lucie says:

    I took photos of your hairstyle from previous posts to my hairdresser last week. We both LOVED how it turned out!!! You are an Inspiration of class and style!!! Thanks Beth!❤️

  83. Susan says:

    Beth, Your new haircut is beautiful. I really liked the last cut but this one lovely! Thank you for the up date, like the outfit too! Really nice outfit, like shirt with white jeans.

  84. Lael Arrington says:

    Beth, you’re back! Love the shorter, more relaxed than previous short do’s look . Makes you look lighter, brighter and younger! Like. Like.

  85. Linda Brickley says:

    Love your short haircut. Very similar to mine. Looks very cool and summery!

  86. Teri says:

    Most definitely, you look much younger and sassier with short hair! To be honest, I didn’t like longer hair on you. Like me, it definitely ages us.

  87. Cindy Roberts says:

    Lovvvvve the new cut! Might do that one myself!

  88. Brenda says:

    You were the inspiration for letting my hair grow out to its natural color. Five months after no haircut and color, I decided it was time. We moved from metro Atlanta to Kentucky. I had to find a new stylist. 😕 Well I did and we both have the same hairs cut. I could not be happier! Thanks for the great styles, food and drinks!

  89. Karyn says:

    I never thought I would say this, as I prefer long hair, I love the short haircut…its fabulous…. I do not care for the bob on anyone, its, well, boring….. unless you are supermodel Linda Evangalista… your new cut is very chic and modern and has texture…

  90. Judi Hume says:

    You’re pretty, and you have great hair, so I enjoyed seeing you try it longer, but that said, I LOVE the new cut! It’s so chic! I always enjoy your posts. Thanks for the update! 🙂

  91. Judy Kettler says:

    Your new haircut is adorable, yay team short!

  92. Dianne Kropp says:

    Haircut is AMAZING! Wish mine could look like that!! Enjoy the rest of the summer!

  93. Deborah says:

    I love your new short cut. I’ve seen it on you before and am glad to see it again. It makes your blue eyes pop.

  94. Julie says:

    So gorgeous, Beth! You look like your sophisticated self again.

  95. Dorothy says:

    Love the new haircut- you look more comfortable.

  96. Nancy Hollen says:

    Love the short haircut, takes 10 years off .Some of us are short hair ladies.

  97. Jackie says:

    Luv luv luv this cut. It is so flattering and shows off your pretty eyes

  98. Mary says:

    Loving the new summer do you’re styling. I’ve been growing my hair out for a few years and I’m thinking I may want to do a short summer cut myself. Thanks for the inspiration

  99. Sheila says:

    SO glad you cut it! Very flattering!

  100. Melissa Carriere says:

    I LOVE your new “do.”

  101. Lisa K. says:

    Love, love your new haircut! So chic on you!

  102. Ann Rourke says:

    There you are! Love it so much!

  103. Karen says:

    Beth, the new haircut looks fabulous, I love the shorter hair on you it looks so much better in my opinion, also makes you look younger, and sexier.

  104. Ileana C Tufano says:

    Love the haircut!! I’m always taking pictures of your hair and bringing them to my stylist to copy. The only thing he won’t let me do is go all gray. Love your clothing style too. 😊

  105. Caren says:

    Beth – your new cut looks great on you! Your hair looks to be about my color. See, I’ve colored it for years but I’m going thru cancer treatment and it’s just starting to grow back. I think it will look a lot like yours. I’m on the fence about coloring it again but if it can look like yours, I think I’d like it. Of course it would gave to be cut into a beautiful style such as yours. Glad you went for it! Thanks for sharing!

  106. Cathy B says:

    Beth, I love your new hairstyle. It looks amazing, although your other styles were lovely as well. I had my last root color in February! Yes, I have six months of white roots!! I must admit that it is so freeing to finally give up the worry of coloring every four weeks. By two weeks, I would have regrowth and then worry how it would look until the fourth week…eek!

  107. Suzanne Smith says:

    Love the hair! I guess it’s a longer pixie cut? Looks very flattering. You’ll definitely enjoy it in the dog days of summer here right now. Happy monday!

  108. Sue Stout says:

    Love your short haircut! I was hoping you would have it cut again. I think you look more glamorous with short hair! I enjoy your style!

  109. Kim Smith says:

    Love it!
    You always look stylish & dare I say perfect.
    I lived in Atlanta for 29 years.
    I now live 40 miles North of San Diego.

  110. Babylyn josol says:

    I liked your hair same with your dress you looked so fresh and young.and the color of your dress màkes it looked so clean..and very nice to see , I really liked that attire

  111. Kim Bush says:

    hi Beth,
    this is the first time i have made a comment on your blog and just wanted to say a big thank you
    i have been following your blog and utube for about 12 months now and am just loving your style and perspective on life and the fun of fashion.
    i am viewing from Australia and am so glad i found you as i feel like i am no longer “invisible” at age 60 and am embracing life with more confidence.
    you initially inspired me to go with my grey hair as i loved the way yours looked, and now, here you are with some more inspiration with your new summer haircut.
    sassy and classy at the same time – luv it.
    warmest regards Kim

  112. Jo Anne Cosentino says:

    Personally, I like your hair short. This style suits you beautifully. May I suggest you not make it your new “summer” cut, but keep wearing it short. IMHO, older women, with very few exceptions, look more stylish and younger with short hair. You will notice that many women who insist on wearing long hair, normally wear it up, because up brings facial features up and we need that because we are constantly fighting gravity. Having said all that, your new haircut looks fabulous!

  113. Suzanne says:

    I have a question about the workouts in the Faster Weight Loss program you talked about a couple of weeks ago. With your 18 lb loss did you follow the workouts exactly or do your own? Can you tell me a little more about it?


  114. Gwen Marie Ewing says:

    Your new haircut is a classic on you! Looks super sharp,I like it! You can wear a versatile of styles and look lovely!

  115. Linda says:

    Love, love, love your short haircut!!! The longer sytle was nice to try, but nothing beats this great style. It looks awesome on you!!

  116. Wilma says:

    Love the new hair! In the one side picture it looks like it is cut up around the ear. Is it? Or is it just pushed back over the ear? I’m getting mine cut later this month and may try something very similar.

  117. Gladys says:

    Oh yes! Loving that new hairstyle!

  118. Sharon says:

    I love the new do. I too love the classic look in dressing. I follow you daily. I am older 73, but I never want to dress like an “old lady:” Have a great day Beth.

    • Rosalie frawley says:

      I agree who wants to dress like an “old lady”, I’m 76 and still find it hard to believe.

  119. Dorothy Flaak says:

    I just love your summer haircut!

  120. Jane says:

    Is Lyric’s salon located in the Chicago area? If so, I would love to check it out.

  121. Deb says:

    Love your haircut !

  122. Rosalie frawley says:

    My hair is like yours, I have been growing it out to, it is almost one length, and I like the back, but I am tempted to get it cut short, since I also look better in shorter hair, it is now grey and I like the color, so undecided now, but I like your new style.

  123. Paula says:

    Thank you for the different angles of your new do. I’m taking it to my stylist next week. You look fabulous!!

  124. Bonniev says:

    I’m so happy to see your new haircut. You look so much younger and prettier with the short hair. Very stylish. Love, love! I would love to have that haircut.

  125. Dawn says:

    Love the short haircut! So chic and so you! 👍

  126. Marthie Grobler says:

    Love your short hair!

  127. Tami Black says:

    I love the new short look! You have a striking resemblance to Lady Diana not only in looks but in class as well. I look forward to your posts everyday.

  128. Sarah says:

    Love your new hair cut. Since I have been home since February ( broken ankle then pandemic) I, too,let my hair grow out and hadn’t gotten color. Your gorgeous gray hair made me decide to embrace my gray ( which is white) and I thank you for the inspiration as I love it, I also cut my hair, which I love too-now if only the bangs would finish growing out! Also love this look- I adore white jeans and anything plaid.

  129. Bonnie S. Holley says:

    I love your hair either way Beth but not everyone can pull off a short snappy hairstyle and YOU CAN! So I say go for it!

  130. DIANNE says:

    I absolutely love your hairstyle.. It is so cute on you and it just makes your eyes brighter.

  131. Debbie says:

    Love your new do!

  132. Pinned this gorgeous hairstyle (I liked it longer as well) to my pinterest board here: https://www.pinterest.com/stillblondeaaty/hairstyles-for-women-over-45-hairstyles-for-women-/ You MAY be on that board a few times (lol). Thanks for always sharing such great style with all of us.

  133. Pat says:

    Love your hair👍🌟

  134. MW says:

    Great style for you. Perfect “do” all the way around. Yay!

  135. Kathye Vance says:

    You look very nice with both hair styles, always classy.

  136. Eve says:

    I know how much it must have cheered you to get your hair cut. It’s the greatest feeling just walking around shopping knowing your hair looks great. I’ve had a health issue with an old nemesis so I can’t wait to get out and get mine cut. I have a lyric named Camille who works wonders for me.

  137. Helen says:

    This is your style ! So glad you went shorter ! Sophisticated and yet playful cut! Because of your beautiful silver hair, I have grown out my natural silver after coloring for 45 years !

  138. Shirley Maynard says:

    The shape is beautiful. If you go long again keep that shape with the raised back and longer sides, fuller on the crown. It’s more that the shape of the long bob was not as flattering, not the length. Looks lovely!

  139. Cherie Baker says:

    I love your new cut— it suits you well. I really enjoy reading your blog — especially Fridays with Oscar.🤗

  140. Kathy says:

    I love your new hairstyle. Beautiful!

  141. Denise says:

    Kept my opinion to myself, but was secretly hoping you would cut it short again. So much better!

  142. Angie says:

    Love your hair, very classy!

  143. Cecile says:

    Love the new haircut! I always admired your short hair style. As someone who’s had short hair for years and years, I was surprised to find that my thick, previously wavy hair is now curly thanks to missing several haircuts during the shut down. I’m actually going to try for a stacked curly bob since I’ve come this far. You made a great choice to go short again. I’ll see what happens to my hair in the next few months. If nothing else, it’s interesting to hear the comments! My husband- “Can’t you brush that?”

  144. Vikki Charles says:

    So few women can wear a short hairstyle and look as stylish and chic as you. The shorter style is much more youthful on you too.

  145. Holly K says:

    I loved your hair longer but it’s even more beautiful cut short! You are stunning and the shorter style shows your beautiful face more!

  146. LJ Steele says:

    Your new haircut is nice. And yes silver and 2020 jeans are your style. How are the dogs doing? Lets hope that things get safer soon.

  147. Love this new short hairdo.
