Each woman has to find the right hair style that works for her.

I've always had long hair, when I was younger it was waist length, really pretty. Now I wear it a little below my shoulders. Longer hair looks more feminine.

Some women do look better with shorter hair, depends on features.

I've known several women that always had short hair and grew it really long once they felt they were getting older. Not the best style because they looked better with shorter hair mainly because of their features. One of the women, hadn't seen in awhile, we meet for coffee, I didn't really recognize her with waist length hair - didn't care for the look on her because for her features, shorter hair was a better look.

Btw: the post with pics of Christie, Valerie, Marie & Michelle - these women are beautiful and very feminine. It wouldn't really matter their hair style, however, long hair suits them.

Just like I did last year. My hair was about bra length where your short sleeve would be....and as a dog walker I never SAW IT because it has to be UP and out of my face.

First I went chin length. Fine. BTW you look YOUNGER with hair between your chin and shoulders not dragging down your face with super long hair but whatever....

Then I kept going shorter and shorter to super short.

I LOVE IT. NO tangling and nonsense, no tons of products necessary, and it is super much cooler and I live in Florida.

Yesterday in Home Depot I took a picture of a woman with a buzz type cut with "pieces" and shocking red.

I'm going THERE next. But more auburn-ish, my natural color.

The beauty is you can experiment, it grows back FAST and you can always cover it up with a visor or cap if you don't like something about it.

And if you have NATURAL hair in your 50's then YES you have dulling and loss of color. It's nature.

At least go get a glaze and brightening it up is the OTHER thing I'd be thinking.

The OTHER thing I'd be thinking is "Why is this woman so attached to this hair? What does it represent?"

You only get ONE life why live it looking EXACTLY THE SAME and doing all that work for really, NO reason.

I know you didn't ask all that but that's what I AM THINKING.



Wow. You sure do think a LOT about other women's hair and general appearances, don't you?

I might not think any particular woman looks good with hair down to her butt, but, then again, what I think about the way other people choose to look isn't important.

As in most other threads on CD and in life, generally, it's probably the people who are the LEAST qualified to judge others' appearances who DO most of the judging.

Is yours THAT long?
Mine is, and I love it! It is not dry and brittle! It is not dull and lifeless! I am in my 60s, but my hair must look good because every time I go out, I get compliments. I have never had anyone suggest I cut my hair.

I had short hair in my early 20s while working in a factory. I hated it and was happy when it grew out. I clip it myself, keeping ends nice; and there is even a trick for split ends that I learned in the Sixties that still works. I have auburn hair, the shade of which varies with the seasons and the amount of time spent outdoors. It is thick, slightly wavy and takes very little care. I shampoo and condition, and neither step takes much time. I wrap it in a towel to dry a little. Then, I twist it into a knot at the nape of my neck and use a scrunchy. When I release it, my hair falls in gentle waves. There's no extra work to it!

I especially liked having long hair when I went to reenactment events for about 15 years. I'd be going to them now except health isn't allowing it.

You people sound like the ones who harped at me in the Eighties to get a perm so I'd look like everyone else! I don't have a weird attachment to my tresses. I just like having long hair. What is wrong with that?! Look at Lillian Gish and other actresses who always kept their hair long~and, yes, I mean to their waists or past it. I think people have a weird mentality if they can't accept whatever hair-length someone wants.

Short hair is for some people; the rest of us like our tresses. When my hair becomes too much to manage... Well, I'll probably be such an old lady that I wouldn't care what is done to it. Till then, I'll enjoy my mane of hair and thank people for the compliments. Little children generally call me "Ariel", and I have to admit that it took me awhile to figure out why because I don't like "new Disney", thus never watched that movie. So, I suppose they're complimenting me, too. I have found that babies go for a handful if they get the chance and am used to mothers needlessly apologizing for the ensuing tugs.

Again, if you like short hair, that's OK. Leave us long-haired ladies AND gentlemen alone! Gosh! Didn't we go through this in the Sixties?!

Sometimes it looks good, sometimes it doesn't.

If I was the owner of Karmin Hair Tools I would be such a happy bunny. The more people with long hair, old or young, men or women, the better!

When people take a long look, what are they thinking?
"the hippie look is sooooo over"

I agree with MystMoonstruck - we did go through this in the 60's about long hair !
