Though they still look at themselves as young hippie girls from 1970s- instead of the middle aged women they are today.

I say cut your hair into something more fitting to your age and situation. Agree or disagree?

You sound just like my mother. When I turned 30 she told me to cut my hair, at 40 she told me that "Women over 40 should not have long hair." Now that I'm 50 she's beside herself. What difference does it make? Her hair is 1/4" to 1/2" long all over her head and she likes it that way. Mine is below my shoulders and my DH, kids, and I like it that way. Can't we all just let people have the length of hair they want?

The key with short hair is that it is not too short and cut in longer layers that frame the face (not the short "butch" cut on top). Women with baby fine thin hair (like myself) look much better with this type of "long short hair" than long stringy hair. Not every woman can grow thick long "feminine" hair. I think to say that a woman with fine hair who simply is unable to have long hair because of the type of hair she has is "unfeminine" is a bit harsh.

Long hair is great at any age, but some women get it way, WAY too long though! Now that's too long! Those are normally that let themselves go too long.

Get regular trims every 100 days and maybe a haircolor done every 4-6 months to keep it fresh, if you're going to keep your hair long.

And don't get it too, too long. You're not 10 years old anymore and it's looks a little childish when it passes your lower back...Sorry, but that's what some look like to me.

My short hair is very, ultra-feminine. Who ever said it isn't, hasn't lived...Why stay a boring long length all the damn time?! It gets boring after a while. Mine is cut in layers too and looks hot. I love it.
