When I see an older woman with long hair, I think how much Pantene (make wigs for cancer patients) would love that hair.



There's others I'm sure.



Their hair, their business.

I suppose some people might think that, but what if the woman is professional, is in a dress or pants suit, etc.?
Take a female lawyer, CPA, sales rep, or MD for example. Frankly I think many women look better in longer hair (more feminine), and short hair does not suit their face.

Again, it was about long hair to Butt, I don't think long hair (shoulders, blades etc) is an issue is it? Not sure what length some of the posters are referring to.

Eh.

Most people care about the opinions of those they know and like and trust. Single people looking for partners care about the potential opinions of potential partners on their appearance. People who aren't looking to attract anybody mostly care about what they like, and, to some extent, the opinions of those they know and respect (but typically, these opinions take backseat to the individual's preferences.

People want to be liked and fit in an belong to a collective unit, in general, but most people don't spend time worrying if their hair being too long is the culprit that's preventing them from being accepted into social groups, no. Within context, hair length preference really isn't a huge point of assimilation. There is massive variability in "socially acceptable" hair length. So, yeah, how we wear our hair is much more a function of what WE like best than what others like best. Most people would never get a hairstyle they dislike because someone else likes it.

I think the worst you can do if you're an older woman is cut your hair short. You know what I'm talking about. When the husband and the wife start to look like the same person and the woman no longer looks like a woman.

That's a hormonal thing as men produce estrogen and women testosterone when older. Men definitely start to look like women and Hillary looks like Dick Cheney.

Older women with a man's haircut is a bit creepy.
