Are you fed up with magazine articles telling you to get a shorter and more youthful hair cut?
I have always had fairly long hair. When I was very young it was very long but as I have got older it has got shorter.

I remember my mother in law used to say to me:
‘But Jane, you can’t have long hair when you are old‘.
It was a commonly held idea that long hair was for the young. And so I cut it a little shorter every year, but I didn’t really like it. And then I put it up, which I still do, but as you can see from my photo, I am growing it back!
What do you think? Does long hair look good on the older woman?

    • I think long hair, or short hair looks good on older women.  It just depends on the style, and the woman!

      I’ve had and am having my issues with my hair.  For one, I cut my hair very short, I mean short a year ago.  I thought it would never grow back!  It’s just now growing, thank heavens!  I just thought it was too cute of a look for me, although it was different and felt great for about a month!

      I’ve played with the idea of wearing extenstions but I’m tired of that too so I’m letting my hair grow out, no matter how crazy it gets!  That is really a giant step for me, seriously!

    • You look great in your photo!
      Hair is so important to most of us. When it’s not right we don’t feel right, whatever anyone else says! Bad hair days are bad hair days!
      Stick with the growing and if it gets too annoying you can always get stylish hats!

    • I have a aunt who like Crystal Gayle the country singer had hair she could walk on all her life.  She just now cut it to her waist and she is in her 80s....

      I learned to stop listening to what magazines and others tell me I should be wearing, or doing at any age...there is always someone who will try to run your life for you.

      Here I am in my 40s now and I’m finally listening to my own spirit on what makes me happy.

    • Kim and Jane. You look great. I think it depends more on the shape of your face than age. I think that came out because as we age our faces can become bloated which makes it appear more round. If I remember correctly from reading beauty mags...short hair is better for a round face. Faye happy

    • I love long hair which I have!  I think older women should have long hair.  Who ever said that woman should have short hair probably didn’t have nice hair.
