9 Tips For Long Hair Over 40 Boston
As a Real Housewives fan of every city, I often question are these women too old for such long hair?  Twenty years ago women would cut their hair at the age of 30, but today we see long hair adorned by women well into their 50’s.  The Real Housewives all wear hair extensions because let’s face it, by 35 hair does not grow the same way it did in our 20’s.  

Long hair in your 20’s

What to consider when wearing a long hair style after 40

Perfect long hair style for women over 40 with a Keratin Hair Treatment

1) The health of your hair; shiny and healthy hair looks a heck of a lot better on an older face than dry witchy looking hair. Go for weekly hair treatments to promote healthy shiny hair.

2) Your complexion.  A wrinkled face and long hair are not a good match!  It is better to care for your skin’s appearance first before wearing long hair.

3)  A good hair length after 40 is a bit below the shoulders with lots of layers for youthful volume

4)  Frame your face with layered angles and do not attempt to wear you hair one length since this will surely look foolish

5)  Do not discount hair extensions if your hair is in bad shape.  Hair Extensions are not just for long hair, but for fuller and healthy looking hair.  The average hair extension client is 38 years old.  

6)  Your profession, a conservative work environment may not be the place for extra long hair.

7)  Your lifestyle; are you on the soccer field with the kids?  Your better off with a longer hair style that you can pull up into a ponytail than the antiquated “soccer mom bob!”

8) Your hair color; ultra long hair that is bleached blonde looks like you are trying to hard vs. a natural looking highlight blonde hair or rich brown hair.

9)  Have a Keratin Treatment a few times per year to infuse your hair with healthy protein and promote shiny hair.

Wearing long hair into your 40’s is quite the norm these days and if you are confident to rock it... then go for it.  Keep your hair healthy with a good diet, have your long hair professionally colored and cut and enjoy because you will not want to have long hair in your 70’s!

    • Good points as I am in the midst of growing my hair out, and it is very wavy and coarse.  I do a home treatment of warm oil (keratin enriched) and that really does the trick.  I might also try grape seed oil which is very good for the body anyway.

    • What a presumptuous load of BS!  The profile picture of this poster, shows bleached blonde, dried out hair.  Don’t think I’ll take any fashion advice from someone who does not practice what they preach.  And I don’t care much for being labeled “foolish” for wearing a hair style that suits me and that I get complimented on daily.  Oh and I WILL have long hair into my 70s and beyond!
